Screaming

As I watch you drive away

Tears streaming down my face.

You are taking the best part of me with you.

In my head I’m screaming, “Please don’t go.”

But your taillights have already gone.

I realize I’m not making a sound. 

My voice fled with you.

The Evolution of Leonardo DiCaprio – Leonardo DiCaprio Birthday – 42 Photos For His 42nd Birthday – EW.com

Leonardo DiCaprio has proven himself to be a wonderful actor. Portraying his characters eerily and easily. “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” is one of the first of his movies to make me take notice and appreciate his acting ability. Then his performance in “Basketball Diaries” was fascinating. I loved “Catch Me If You Can” and “Blood Diamonds.” 

Happy 42nd Birthday to a great actor.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie warriors, known for their beauty and fighting skills, make these women my favorite mythical creatures. In Norse Mythology (Old Norse – valkyrja “chooser of the slain”) these women get to choose who dies in battle and who they will bring back to their afterlife hall Valhalla which is ruled by the god Odin. Half of the slain go to the goddess Freyja’s afterlife field Folkvangr.

Valkyries are associated with the raven and swan. Sometimes they are portrayed traveling on winged horses. They are said to come from royal parents and they often have mortal lovers

Their are some who believe the Valkarie not only decided who would die in battle, but they also created  the battles out of mischief or boredom. Troublemakers is often used to describe these women.

I first heard of the Valkarie from the long running television show Charmed. They weren’t portrayed as evil beings the sisters needed to vanquish. Rather they were viewed as believing men were the weaker gender and they trained them in the Valhalla to protect the Valkarie and the god Odin.

There are other mythical beings I find interesting such as unicorns and the terrifying yet romantic vampires.  Faries would be my second choice. If I had to choose only one mythical creature to exist I would choose the Valkarie because they are beautifully empowered women.

CoverGirl’s Latest Brand Ambassador Is a Hijab-Wearing Muslim | The Daily Dot

This is amazing. CoverGirl took a risky and worthwhile chance when they graced their cover with their first male CoverGirl. Now to share this beautiful woman on the cover has made CoverGirl my favorite brand again. 

CoverGirl is showing the world the beauty in diversity and differences. To break away from the “normal” models is fresh, new, and perfect timing. 

Being different is beautiful and CoverGirl has showcased this beauty. 

I believe their newest faces say to young ladies and young men that it is okay not to look like everyone else. The media can influence how people view beauty and so many people compare themselves to models they see on television, in magazines, and social medias. 

I hope this is a step for everyone to embrace who they are and be happy with their looks. Beauty comes from the inside and shines on the outside.

Shout out to CoverGirl!
