I needed to stand on my own two feet and be strong, but it was always nice to have someone to lean on, just for a little while
"Himalaya, Land of Women | Full Documentary | SLICE" di YouTube
Mereka hidup dalam apa yang tampak bagi sebagian orang sebagai hidup yang serba kekurangan. Menjalani hari dengan aktivitas monoton sepanjang tahun demi menyambung hidup. Berladang jika musim panas, mencari rumput untuk bekal ternak di musim dingin dan hampir setiap hari hanya memakan olahan susu seperti mentega dan yoghurt. Benar-benar setiap hari, 3 kali sehari. Tidak ada sayur atau buah. Desa mereka berada diantara puncak gunung-gunung tertinggi di dunia.
Mungkin dalam masyarakat kita mereka tampak serba kekurangan. Tapi sungguh mereka kaya raya daripada kita yang mengejar kekayaan di kota-kota yang membosankan. Kota riuh ramai, tapi kita sendiri kesepian.
Learning what is the true meaning of thankfulness.
After watching this I realized that I do have too much of everything. And why am I still complaining too much about my life?
The Scottish Suffragette Agnes Henderson Brown was born on April 12th 1866 in Edinburgh.
Nannie Brown, as she later became known as was born at 125 Princes Street, which is slap bang opposite the Castle. The street in those days would have been mainly a residential one, as it was meant to be in the plans for the New Town, George Street was meant to be the main shopping are.
Their father was interested in social and political reform and the house became a centre of cultural activity. The Dad ran a number of fruit shops under the title of William Brown & Sons he trained his daughters, Agnes and Jessie, well and refused to submit to laws that he objected to, he was an activist for women's rights. His opposition to taxes that differentiated between genders caused him to end up in Calton Gaol.
Agnes and her sister Jessie were among the first women to be seen on bicycles in Scotland. The safety bicycle was the direct ancestor of today’s machines. With a slight adaptation they attracted thousands of women to cycling and some historians point to the safety bicycle as the beginnings of suffrage, women’s rights and feminism.
They first became active in the (WFL) Women's Freedom League around 1910. Agnes was one of 6 women who walked the whole length of the Edinburgh to London suffrage march in 1912. It took five weeks and involved walking around 15 miles a day and attending a suffrage rally each evening. The marchers were dressed in russet brown jackets, earning the six women the name (the) Brown Women.
Following Emily Davison's death at the Derby in 1913 a deputation of Councillors, JPs ministers, solicitors and barristers from Scotland and the North of England tried to see Prime minister Asquith, He refused to see them so they formed the 'Northern Men's Federation for Women's Suffrage' Agnes became secretary of the Edinburgh Branch.
Unlike the (WSPU) The Women's Social and Political Union , the WFL welcomed male support in the struggle. They continued campaigning throughout the war years.
After the war Agnes was involved in setting up the (SWRI) Scottish Women's Rural Institute and was an organiser from 1917-22. She was also a member of the Edinburgh Women's Citizens Association.
Nannie Brown wrote articles and plays and participated in societies such as the Edinburgh Dickens Fellowship, where she learned women to type and ride a bicycle.
She continued to walk. Not content with the Brown Women walk she repeated a similar walk but this time she set off from John O Groats. As she travelled to London she reported on her journey in the Weekly Scotsman.
Agnes Brown died on 1st December 1943 and was buried with her parents in Dean Cemetery Edinburgh. She was noted in the Scottish Saltire Society who published her obituary as an Outstanding Women of Scotland Community in 2014

THIS IS WHY SHE WILL NEVER SETTLE FOR BEING YOUR ONE NIGHT STAND
I do not know when exactly it happened but it is obvious that random hookups have become a part of the dating game. There is nothing weird about being with someone just because you share strong chemistry and physical attraction with them, without any deeper connection. Nowadays it is nothing unusual to pick up a girl at a bar, take her home, have sex with her and then never call her again, right? The next morning, you forget that this girl ever existed. The two of you had a good time, it was great while it lasted and that is the only thing you are concerned about more than something else.
You do not care if this girl got emotionally attached to you, if you hurt her feelings and ego by disappearing without saying a word or if she wanted the same thing all along as well. You simply move on with your life, as if nothing happened, in search of your next victim. After all casual affairs, meaningless flings, no strings attached and friends with benefits types of relationships are everywhere you look. They have become a part of modern dating and whoever is not into things like this carries the risk of being called old-fashioned or even a prude. Nevertheless there are girls who refuse to settle for being someone’s one-night stand, even at the risk of remaining forever alone.
Girls who need more than sexual attraction to get into a guy’s bed and more than being turned on to wake up next to him. There are some women who can not separate their body from their heart. Women who will not give you just the part of them you like and girls who do not need to sleep with someone to fix their broken ego. This girl is one of those women. One of the women who simply can not jump into a stranger’s bed and continue living her life like it never happened. It does not mean that she is not free spirited or that she judges people who have casual sex. She respects everyone’s choices but this is just not her thing. Nevertheless the last thing she plans on doing is changing her attitudes just to blend in with the masses or to fit into some imaginary society standards. She will never cross her own boundaries just to be like everyone else or for some guy to like her more. You see, this girl always goes all the way in and she is not capable of entering any relationship with half of her heart. So, if you want to have her, you have to like all of her parts and not just her body. She is not someone who can share her deepest intimacies with you and then accept the fact that the two of you are supposed to act like complete strangers the next time you run into each other. She can not kiss you and fall asleep in your arms unless she feels that she is important to you and that the feeling is mutually directed from heart.
She does not want to wake up next to an unfamiliar face the next morning, regretting all the choices she made last night. She does not want to feel worthless, wondering why this man could not like her more than just to sleep with her and then banish her from his life afterward. This girl knows herself too well to be aware that she needs to feel love in order to make love and the last thing she wants is to get emotionally attached to some asshole who will never call her back after getting what he wanted from her. She can not and will not pretend that sex does not matter and she will never sleep with someone without any emotions involved. She will not act like she is perfectly OK with being some guy’s toy he will use and throw away later because she knows that she deserves more than that. The last thing she needs is some random guy who will take advantage of her body just so he could heal his insecurities and feel better about himself. Instead, this girl wants a man who will choose to build long-term love with her over settling for temporary lust anytime. A man who will respect her boundaries and who will care her for enough to want the whole package. And she would rather remain single until this man comes along then settle for being someone’s one night stand.
A lot of my insta asks were about Maria cooking
Basically, she's not all that good, but she has no palate to speak of so she can't actually tell

“I’m happy as I am, and love my liberty too well to be in a hurry to give it up for any mortal man.” I like good strong words that mean something. Don’t try to make me grow up before my time. I do think that families are the most beautiful things in all the world!

Basically I asked my insta followers what vibes they got from Maria and someone just said "a queen" which led to this weirdly deified drawing of her...
Aka, how Diego sees her 100% of the time

Name: Electra Rose McDonald
Height: 5 feet 7 inches
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Blue/Green
A strong girl who grew up in several foster homes, Electra has always been searching for that one stable person or people she can rely on. She hasn’t exactly had that in her life, and although she still has hope to find them someday, she’s losing it fast. For the moment, at least, she has the hard-hitting sport of hockey to keep her company.

I see you.
I see you pushing through. Kicking ass the best you can. Putting on the good face. Being a big girl and pushing through your day.
I’m sure you get 1,000 weird messages and pictures and celery ( was supposed to say creepy but auto corrected to celery so fuck it , I left it because celery is funnier) people but you post what you want and when you want.
Maybe it’s a sunset , a big truck or a picture of your boobs ... it never matters because you do what you want and how you feel that day.
You share your life a little ... your joy and your pain ( that foot scar tho!) and your triumphs and your roadblocks.
I’ve said before a while back that it’s obvious you love hard and are loyal to a fault sometimes but you’re a strong and amazing person and I doubt that anyone will ever take that away from you ( again ... because I feel that you may have lost that in a relationship one time).
You go do you and kick some ass.
You’ve got this.
We see you. Keep it up!
WOW...Just WOW!! Thank you kindly, so very much!!! I can see you’re one that pays attention and that’s an amazing quality to have!!!
And celery, OMG!!!🤣😂🤣 That was priceless!!!
You definitely have me down to a T!! If I loved any harder, it’d kill someone!!🤣 Luckily I’ve found my person, there are still ups and downs as with any relationship of course. We get off track, someone doesn’t communicate, lose sight of the important things or stop doing them all together. But ya never give on love, no matter what!!! You fight like hell for what you want or you fight like hell to let it go when it’s no longer meant for you.
I’ve seen it all and experienced even more! But yes, I am strong, only choice I’ve had and THAT is definitely something that can’t be taken from me!! Thank you for that!! That’s the main reason I’m here, for me, this has been my outlet for more years than I care to admit 🙈🙊 While this one is new, my old one has been up for 11 years!!🤯 And I’ve met some AMAZING people along the way, that have helped build this attitude more so than it already was!🤣😂 Sorry, not sorry!!
And yes... that’s scar tho!!😫😭 That’s been a bitch and my doctor will hear ALL about it on Friday!! Little incision my ass!!!!!🤦🏼♀️ But I’m alive, I’m blessed and grateful!!!
I do so appreciate all the kind words!! Good karma will definitely be finding you!! We need more kind people like you in the world! Thank you again and hope you’ve had a great day!!!!
