Searching for Utopia

In search of a good place and no place.

whenever I go out I’m making a political statement, I flaunt my legs, I show my belly. I’m not afraid by the sight of my rolls. But some days I hate this body, or at least I think I hate it. So many people view my body as a flaw, knowing this makes it easier for me to dislike my body. It’s easy to follow the stream, even though I try not to. Sometimes I forget how majestic and beautiful I am. How brave I am. I’ve come so far, my scars being a constant reminder of that. I used to plan my funeral and now I’m planning my future. Life is weird, good, painful and crazy.

"I used to plan my funeral and now I’m planning my future"

Try not to compromise. So many people don’t do what they really want in their hearts because they feel like they’re not good enough, or they’re not smart enough, or they’re not talented enough… anything. And that doesn’t matter. In order for you to live a remarkable life — in order for you to live a life that is fulfilling — you need to be able to go after what you want. And if you don’t, you’re not going to achieve it — ever.
