OMG YES! YES! I remember the weird duck character now, thought it was a queen that’s why I said it’s a Medieval setting! Argh thank you so much!!!! It’s 5 am already and I haven’t slept yet thinking about it so thank you!! 😭
Does anyone know a children’s adventure movie in the 90’s where there’s a giant teacup and a big mirror and maybe little people, in a medieval setting? Sorry I know that description is so vague but I had a flashback last night and I’m so sure it’s from a movie I saw as a kid and now I’m dying to know the title! There was this one scene where the protagonists (two kids or little people?) were hoisted up in a net trap and dangled over a giant teacup..?
For the past three months I’ve been experiencing the following:
Irregular periods (for the first time since I started!)
Dandruff (just mild but still deserves another UGGHHH)
I’ve been researching and apparently those are all symptoms of PCOS, and apparently it is suspected that insulin is linked with PCOS. I have a family history with diabetes so naturally I freaked out at the first mention of insulin. Oh god I need to stay away from WebMD.
“Comparison is all about conformity and competition… The comparison mandate becomes this crushing paradox of ‘fit in and stand out!’ It’s not cultivate self-acceptance, belonging and authenticity; it’s be just like everyone else, but better… I can’t tell you how many times I’m feeling so good about myself and my life and my family, and then in a split second it’s gone because I consciously or unconsciously start comparing myself to other people.”—
A quite damecatoe just sent me in response to a mention of Brene Brown’s TED talk. I think it’s from her books The Gifts of Imperfection. Which I very much want to read.
“Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough.”—Daniell Koepke (via touchpulp)
Are Quest nutrition bars really as healthy as they claim to be? I know some popular fitness bloggers promote them but I’m not so ready to take their word for it because they get paid big bucks to do that. I don’t know, they just seem pretty processed to me. And you know what they say: if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
Does anyone know the title of a novel about two sisters where one is paralyzed and being taken care of by the other because of guilt? I read it ages ago and now all I remember is how the one sister became paralyzed when she fell off a tree (she got caught on a branch on her way down and her spine ‘folded’ around the branch) because her sister shook the branch they were sitting on because she thought the boy she fancied liked her sister instead? I think the story’s setting is in the Middle East. I’ve been trying to remember the title for hours and it’s driving me up the wall!
It’s already 5:30 am but it’s still pitch-black outside so I can’t start my run because there’s no way I’m running in the dark in a cemetery. I’ve been dressed and ready for 35 minutes and I can feel my motivation slowly melting like a popsicle under the sun.
