This boy is beautiful
September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day. It’s an opportunity to let people know that they aren’t alone in their struggles. That there is hope. And that the world needs you because no one else can play your part. No one else is you. If things are so dark that you can’t see past the present then lean on those around you, reach out to your friends and your family. Reach out to me. My inbox is always available. Because you don’t know what the future could hold, you could find a cure, you could set up a organisation that changes people’s lives, you could make someone smile. Just because you can’t see the light doesn’t mean you have to give up. I will light the candles for you. I will hold them for you so you are not alone. The darkness will depart and in the meantime we are here for you. As someone who speaks from experience, reach out and let someone know. You don’t have to do this alone.
Welcome to Midnight. That’s what we say when the ball drops and a new year begins. i like that moment because beyond the fireworks and resolutions, beyond the kisses and celebration, is the quiet hope that something can be new. That it’s possible to leave the past behind and start again. There’s nothing extra special on television tonight, no clapping crowd in Times Square, no parade scheduled for the morning. But this midnight means World Suicide Prevention Day, and we would like to think this day can be significant. Not because the world needs another holiday, and not because we need a stage to stand on. We believe in World Suicide Prevention Day for the same reasons we love New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Because perhaps it’s possible to change. Perhaps it’s possible to start again. Perhaps it’s possible for things to be new. We know that change takes more than a moment, and we aren’t saying it will be easy, but we’re saying that it’s worth it. This life. This night. Your story. Your pain. Your hope. It matters. All of it matters. You’re loved. You matter to this world and you matter to the people who love you. So stay. Please stay. No one else can play your part. - Jamie Tworkowski

Pride and Prejudice: A Summary

This woman photographed her hair growing back after chemo and I think it’s the most amazing thing to look at. This lady has my upmost respect
Many cancer patients can be overwhelmed with the physical and emotional difficulties of their disease, and the loss of their hair from chemotherapy treatment certainly doesn’t help. Henna Heals, a rich community of nearly 150 henna tattoo artists worldwide established by a team of 5 women in Canada, helps women with cancer feel confident and beautiful again by drawing elegant henna crowns on their bare heads:
The intricate patterns that the artists create with all-natural henna paste are a unique and empowering substitute to the hats and wigs that many women use to cover their heads after losing their hair to chemotherapy. “For cancer patients, the henna crowns really are a healing experience,” claims Frances Darwin, the founder of Henna Heals. “This is all about them reclaiming a part of themselves that would normally be perceived as ill or damaged or not nice to look at and making it more feminine and beautiful.”
The traditional South-Asian temporary tattoos, which are made with 100% natural home-made henna paste, last for around two weeks and have no harmful side-effects. Henna Heals also offers henna services for special events and does belly painting for mother-to-be, but they always donate 10% of their proceeds to compensate the cost of the henna crowns they make for cancer patients.
This is so beautiful.
