Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be
FITness NOT THINness
If you’re looking for a super basic newborn hat pattern to knit up for someone tiny and new in your life, this is it. I’m pretty sure that each of these took me about 15 minutes to knit. Included are instructions for the top-knot, but you can also leave your hat plain or add a pom-pom. These are perfect baby shower or new baby gifts, and they’d also be great for newborn portrait sessions.
“…he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6, NIV) Sometimes when God is doing a work in our lives, it can begin to feel a little uncomfortable. We may encounter people who are hard to get along with or have circumstances that seem beyond our control. When this happens, instead of complaining, getting sour or trying to change everything around you, why don’t you look deep inside and say, “Lord, thank You for doing a work in me.” See, I’ve learned that God is more interested in changing me than He is in changing my circumstances. If I choose to stay sour because I’m not getting my way or discouraged because things aren’t happening on my time table, that’s going to keep me right where I am. If you want to see change, if you want to see God open up new doors, the key is to bloom right where you’re planted. You can’t wait until everything gets better before you decide to have a good attitude. You have to be the best that you can be right where you are. When you bloom where you’re planted, you’re allowing God to work in you, and He will be faithful to complete what He’s started in you!
God is my strength!
"My name is Jess, I’m the creator of Fat Babes. I’m 26 years old and I love my big, fat body. It took many years of struggle to get to where I am today and I wouldn’t take back a single moment of it.

I did this pose of my boys about 7 years ago. It is a timeless photograph. I love this pose! Gorgeous picture by Brooke Bikneris~
Kayla Autumn Ward I am a transgendered woman who is on her journey to become the woman she has always been. I’m wanting to make a post about people reblogging my posts. I don’t mind but if you are going to reblog it and add hashtags that are inappropriate like shemale, sissy, etc., don’t do so. These are all negative terms that I do not care to be associated with. If that bothers you, bye!
An old picture of a Beatles jam session contains a man who looks almost exactly like Matt Smith’s Doctor. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. If I had a box that gave me access to all of time and space, chilling with the Beatles would be pretty high up on my list of things to do. I’m surprised it took The Doctor until his eleventh generation to get around to it. Steven Moffat is pretty excited about the photo too. “Bloody
This molecule of serotonin (a neurotransmitter) is on Allison’s ribs. She says, “I got it for a number of reasons. 1- Because I suffer from depression and anxiety. 2- It’s something my body relies so critically on, and I felt like if I got it tattooed on me I would forever have the right amount to be okay. 3- I’m a science major—I plan on going to medical school—and I love science.
Four secrets for a cleaner house. "I know a disorderly house might not bother everyone, but truth be told, MY stress levels go UP when my house is a mess. I feel more anxious. I’m less fun. I get overwhelmed and can’t focus. When mama is feeling crazy, nobody’s happy, right? So what are my secrets to a cleaner house?....come see!"
“One of my favorite things is when Regina says, ‘Everyone thinks I’m the Evil Queen, even my son. Let me die as Regina,’” Kitsis says of the season finale. “This is before they took her son, so right now, on that ship, she’ll do whatever it takes to get her son back. If that means Regina is required, she’ll be Regina, but if that means the Evil Queen is required, watch out.” - Eddy Kitsis, TV Guide
I can’t believe I’m about to give you this recipe: my precious, beloved Grandma’s cucumber salad recipe. Technically it’s my recipe because my Grandma never wrote this one down for anyone. “Just make it until it tastes right.” Easier said than done, lady. SO, I tried to make it ’til it tasted right from what°°

I want someone who won’t care that I’m incapable of sitting still, that I can’t grasp the concept of cleaning and I refuse to be ladylike, someone who realizes that half of the decisions I make are usually ones I regret, and I have the right to overreact at any given moment. I want someone who knows how completely insane I am. & he wouldn’t want me any other way
“My girl, you need to understand something about Me. I am a YES God. When I say no to a request, it is because I have said yes to a hundred better things. If you ask for a fish, I will give you a fish. If you ask for a rock, I will NOT give you a rock. I will give you MUCH MORE. If you don’t see the results you’d hoped for, it is not because I am saying no to you. It’s because I’m giving you a hundred other yeses.” If you are struggling with disappointment from God, this truth-packed post is for you!!
There is nothing more true than this statement! I know that if I never took the chance I did over a year ago, I would not be where I am today. I am so proud of that major step I took to better myself. Sure I doubted the whole challenge, but I felt like I had no other choice. My health was on a steady decline and I didn't even have enough energy to be there with my family. I was always tired and made excuse after excuse of why I had no time to

quitepolished: Here’s my right hand, for anyone that wants to see it. Still need quite a bit of practice painting with my left hand as well, but I still like how this turned out. And I’m sure this design could be done with a toothpick if you don’t have a paintbrush.
Calling all eggplant lovers! This is my absolute favorite hummus recipe of the moment and I’m already dreading the end of eggplant season. I made my first version of this hummus over a month ago but I didn’t get around to photographing it. I finally made it again last week (camera close by!) and we’ve …

The Glory Lily is the national flower of Zimbabwe. It grows mostly in jungles. The flower is extremely colourful and beautiful, but never grown in home gardens. Not in my country anyway. If eaten, it is as deadly as cyanide. There are many true stories about people committing suicide by eating the yam of this plant and I myself have come across a young boy who had a fight with his parents and died by eating it. It happened many years ago.
I wanted something to quill but not anything that would take long. I have this little crimpler that I made with my sons LEGO car wheels and was just crimpling some left over strips when I got this idea of the flower. The hardest part of my quilling is the idea of what to quill. Since I don't like doing what someone has already done, I need something different always. Creating it did not take long. The strips of paper is 1/8 inch. I needed just three colours. Red, yellow and green. It isn't a difficult flower at all.
..i would love to have this type of impact on someone..but for the true and positive reasons..not for the ignorant and negative..many want to be an inspiration..but are too blind to realize that what they exude is greed and negativity..you cant be an inspiration when your mirror has too many smudges in it..think about it..
yes its official, this quote can only mean you are a selfish, far to into your self person. If you feel your life is only about having others benefit it you need to get over yourself. How about trying to help benefit someone else's life would that be too much?! This frame of mind is why some people don't/shouldn't have kids
#ShareIG @urbandecaycosmetics #naked3palette Ever since I got the naked 3 palette at Christmas I haven't known what to do with it none of the shadows seem I suit me but today I seem to have got it right (pink tones just do not suit gingers hahah) For this I used strange, limit, nooner, buzz, dust, and blackout!

Be especially careful of liars. Liars are dangerous. If someone will lie to their spouse/partner/family about something, why won’t they lie TO you and ABOUT you too? What makes you so special? People who say or imply “do not judge me” are especially to be watched. Why are they afraid of judgement? It is our right, always to judge people and, if we find them wanting, walk away. You would not deliberately drive into a car wreck, you have a right not to steer your life into...

"I love making movies. When I’m not working, I miss it like I’d miss chocolate or a concert. But I could survive without working and I couldn’t survive without my family. I adore to be with my husband and children. So there you are. If they want to make movies on my front lawn, then I’m available. And that, I suppose, is why my private life has always taken precedence; why I’ve done so few films in recent years." Audrey Hepburn
I saw this tree idea a long time ago and finally found a hint of a how-to idea in the comments on this article. The lighting is so pathetic in my room that I might actually try this!

AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME Can I not do miracles? What you are going through is nothing for Me to handle. Can I not heal you of that ailment? Can I not make a way when there seems to be no way? You know that I can. Never doubt My ability to do what must be done in your life, at just the right time. You must learn to have faith in Me and give thanks in all things, even when you can’t see how I am going to do it. Have faith and know that it will be done at the right time.

If you're allergic to poison ivy, and about 85% of us are, this is a MUST have. Believe me when I tell you this stuff is like a miracle! It's a scrub that's easy to use and relieved itching and pain within about 30 seconds!! It chemically bonds to the irritating urushiol oil and *removes* it. Take it from someone who constantly has poison ivy. It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny. Really bad areas may have to be treated twice. I'm so

Every part of this is the realest shit I could ever put in words. I always believed that if a female is dedicated to the relationship & really wants to be with someone, then she would have all of these attributes. When I read this post I couldn't believe how perfect it was for me cause I've always been this type & believed so much in these words .. but I've come to realize that it really comes down to the type of person you are with. In order to have these qualities, you need someone who allows you to be them. If they don't appreciate what you do for them or how much you care, then eventually all of these qualities slowly start to fade away. You can only give so much to someone until you grow tired of You hear people talk about the "right female", well in my opinion, if this doesn't come natural to your girl then maybe you need to find somebody who brings these qualities out in you. So ladies, reread this post & think to yourself .. are you the type that he really needs?

Hey guys. If you need to talk, please just comment below. I'll be here for you and I promise I won't judge you or talk about you. I know exactly how that feels, and it hurts so bad, so I would never do it to someone else. Please talk if you need to. I would stay up all night to talk you out of a terrible decision. ❤️
