"Men grow up expecting to be the hero of their own story. Women grow up expecting to be the supporting actress in somebody else’s… I refuse to burn my energy adding extra magic and sparkle to other people’s lives to get them to love me. I’m busy casting spells for myself." - Laurie Penny in her excellent article I was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl (via femfreq)

An Understanding

If we believed in every story and we believed in nothing else, our lives would simply stop, for there would be no more mystery. There would be no adventure or journey. Understanding does not come from the words of our teachers, parents, or friends. True knowledge and true wisdom is developed by challenging each and every story. And that is because our story has no end and we do not know the beginning, only this subtle fragment in between. We choose not the time or the setting for those are beyond all control, however, we do choose where to make our stand and what to challenge of each other. 

What purpose does life serve? What possible reason do you have to carry on, each and every day? If you must ask the question of life, then you have yet to conquer it. And the only way to conquer it, is to question it. Do not accept another’s wisdom for you own, but thank them non the less, and pick their words apart until you can pass your knowledge on before the end. 

If you look beyond the facades and the tapestries, you will see there is something greater and deeper, much closer to the heart. It is simply and wonderfully life.
