“Make the first move, tell people how you feel, stop being so scared of rejection, stop feeling so engulfed with thoughts that aren’t even yours, and stop wasting your fucking time.”—what i needed to hear (via gaystray)
So a few weeks ago I was at this flea market and there was this utterly stunning girl, she had dreads and animal liberation patches on her jacket, I just couldn’t take my eyes off of her. I had never done this before because I’m so fucking shy and afraid of talking to people in general and god knows what my thoughts were in this moment, but I scribbled my phone number down and went looking for her. When I found her I stuttered something like “You caught my eye and I normally don’t do things like this but here’s my number and well do what you want with that aaaand I have to go, see ya!”. Then I felt embarassed like fuck and drank a lot of beer. A few days later she send me a text message, saying she’s probably too old for me and taken, but, BUT! she thanked me for approaching her and my courage and that I should continue to do brave things like this and that I’m a good person for overcoming my fears. And that made me more happy than everything. Moral of this story, stop being so scared, have a heart, have courage, you don’t know what might happen. And even if you don’t get what you wanted in the first place, at least you tried. That might be even better sometimes.
“When you are destroying something, you are also destroying yourself, remember. And when you are creating something— a song, a dance— you are also creating yourself. You are discovering new dimensions of your being.”—Osho (via daughterofgollum)
Don’t get distracted. Life is music and dancing in the kitchen and sweet watermelon in a yellow bowl and a dragonfly on your thigh and a faint sense that you’ve lived once or twice before and that breathing feels like a thing you’ve done for centuries.
Don’t forget these things. Everything else is details.
i’ve been doing research about jobs/companies that are accepting of trans and the like since i’m going job hunting again next month, and i found this list, which lists trans-friendly businesses. it links to this page, a directory for employers.
tagging so people can see it, i figured this might come in handy for some people!
