Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.
— Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking (via psych-facts)
"It’s funny. Most girls seem to get a little more self conscious when they start modeling, but for me it was kind of the opposite. I didn’t have great self confidence before I started modeling, and modeling allowed me to see myself in a different light, to see myself through somebody else’s eyes. I learned to be less critical of myself. It helped me really begin to feel good about myself. I’d say it has been a really positive thing for me body-image-wise." -Freshie Juice
