Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.
As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.
“The flower to me means strength with femininity. I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong.”
the whole “mirror mirror on the wall who’s the fairest of them all” thing was created so that
little girls would do it in the mirror and
when their reflection didn’t change they’d see how beautiful they are
that is the most beautiful thing i have read all week
if no one comes from the future to stop you from doing it than how bad of a decision can it really be
i think this will be my graduation quote
i think people who discourage other people’s dreams because they’re “unrealistic” need to stop and realise that the woman who ripped off twilight, added some poorly written porn, made the story worse and published it is now a millionaire because of that
this is the most inspirational post on tumblr
