“We teach girls shame: Close your legs; cover yourself. We make them feel as though by being born female, they’re already guilty of something. As so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who have to silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think… And they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an art form.” – Chimamanda Adichie

Teach girls power
"We teach girls shame. ‘Close your legs!’ ‘Cover yourself!’ We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think… they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an artform." — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, TedxEuston.

On the blog today::::A lesson in self image all women should read. You are #flawless. #20somethinglife #pinoftheday #followblog #selfimage #theflawlessarmy #flawless #realwomen
Stop using the term "Real Women" to refer to curvy girls. Tall skinny girls aren't imaginary. Regardless of how a girl looks: All Women are Real Women. Love this quote! No matter you size or your shape ALL WOMEN ARE REAL WOMEN
I'm not even a tall skinny girl and I agree! I hate 'the real women' qoutes! If you have a vag, then you're a real woman!
ALL women are REAL women. Regardless of appearance. A real woman is anyone who identifies herself as a woman. I get so tired of hearing one body type put down to boost another, or that men prefer one type to another. ALL women are beautiful, and men just like women, have different tastes depending on the person.

God's timing is perfect. I need to remember this!!!
God's timing is perfect. We don’t always understand God’s methods. His ways don’t always make sense to us, but we have to realize that God sees the big picture. Consider this possibility: You may be ready for what God has for you, but somebody else who is going to be involved is not ready yet. God has to do a work in another person or another situation before your prayer can be answered according to God’s will for your life. All the pieces have to come together for it to be God’s perfect time.
Faith in the lord is all you need
God's timing is perfect. Usually His timing stretches our faith and proves His faithfulness.

God's timing is Perfect Timing. It takes a little patience & a lot of faith. But it's always worth the wait. <3
This is so true. Sometimes it takes realizing that maybe its yourself that's not ready to find the one. Both parties have to be in the right place spiritually for God's timing to begin.
Repining this quote for a friend who needs to believe in Gods timing!!!
Have faith, patience and wait for God's timing.
waiting for God's timing is always worth it.
God's timing is PERFECT, if only I could keep remembering this!!

Lucy Barfield (2 November 1935 – 3 May 2003) was the adopted daughter of the British philosopher Owen Barfield & by her baptism the spiritual daughter of C. S. Lewis. In May 1949, Lewis sent Lucy the completed manuscript of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with a letter in which he said: "I wrote this story for you." In October 1950, when the book was published, this letter became its dedication.
C. S. Lewis...source of the quote, "But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again."

The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe book dedication to C.S. Lewis' goddaughter, Lucy Barfield. "I wrote this story for you but girls grow quicker than books... but someday you will be old enough to read fairy tales again. You can take it down from some upper shelf, dust it off, and tell me what you think of it..." ♥ #Novel #Read #Chronicles_of_Narnia
Especially when you look at old family photos. :`(

this is so true... but then divorce has happened for a very long time and marriage is less common than in the past. I have to say that watching my grandparents and parents love is an amazing lesson
I love this quote because it is so true. In today's day and age, love is so disposable. If it's not working then you can just dump it. Back in the day, if your marriage was not perfect, you worked through it and figure it out. You did not get divorced just because you couldn't handle the communication and effort involved in making a relationship work.
true love - if something is broken fix it, don't throw it away. #marriage #relationships
So true! People give up to easily today work at a marriage!
Aint that the damn truth!!! I live by my grandparents relationship!!!

Growing older... Quote to remember when I turn 30
*sigh* need to remember this when I, tired of growing up.
Do not regret growing older, it is a privilege denied to many. | I know that all too well, need to remember this when I frown at my fine lines and gray hairs.
C.S. Lewis; brilliant and wise as always.
