Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.
I’m normally skeptical of female empowerment being used for advertising, but this speaks to my soul that’s navigating the professional world right now

Master craftsman 李继宗 Li Jizong began as a 14-year-old apprentice, and now in his seventies. Workshop in Beijing. Produced opera headpieces the past six decades. His grandfather fell in love with this craft in the 1920s. Every piece is handmade, and he still goes to the theatre to see the actual effect of wearing the helmets and modify them again.

RIP, Alice Coachman, First Black Woman to Win an Olympic Gold Medal
(November 9, 1923-July 14, 2014)
At the 1948 Olympics in London, members of the U.S. Women’s Track and Field team went down to defeat one by one. Any hope of winning rested on Alice Coachman. Thousands of spectators stayed late for the high-jump event and witnessed history as she became the first African American woman to win an Olympic gold medal. In time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, this book follows Coachman on her journey from rural Georgia, where she overcame adversity both as a woman and as a black athlete, to her triumph in Wembly Stadium.
A biography of the first black woman to win an Olympic gold medal, from her childhood in segregated Albany, Georgia, in the 1930s, through her recognition at the 1996 Olympics as one of the hundred best athletes in Olympic history.

What if you were dating a moth prince and living in his kingdom and he knew how out of place you felt so he made you dozens of silk dresses and blankets and gave you lots of fuzzy shawls and scarves so you wouldn’t stand out so much and always said you were so beautiful you were glowing and occasionally bump right into your face because it was a little joke and he would pretend you were a light bulb and give you tiny kisses
Living river, turn light to diamonds
When I look in my true love's eyes.
Like a child feels watching a rainbow.
Like a bird feels the first time it flies.
I feel magic stirring within me,
When I look in my true love’s eyes.
Young as any spring, his eyes almost sing.
