What A Waste! #GirlFailure

Sad_girl_head_down

“Success means being heard and don’t stand there and tell me that you are indifferent to being heard. You may write for the joy of it, but the act of writing is not complete in itself. It has to end in its audience.”

So said American author Flannery O’Connor.

Girls are often encouraged to retreat. They are permitted to demur and back away from their goals. So they bite their nails, they diet themselves into near invisibility, they cry behind closed doors.

What a waste.

  1. However I find Paleo diet, quite unique because it is based on the diet
    of our ancestors. Cooking foods reduces the nutritional value
    of food and kills foods enzymes. If you are blood
    type A, is your main problem your more viscous (thick) blood that by nature
    are more prone to degenerative changes such as heart disease, adult onset diabetes, and
    metabolic syndrome.
