“Does the sun ask itself, ‘Am I good? Am I worthwhile? Is there enough of me?’ No, it burns and it shines. Does the sun ask itself, ‘What does the moon think of me? How does Mars feel about me today?’ No it burns, it shines. Does the sun ask itself, ‘Am I as big as other suns in other galaxies?’ No, it burns, it shines.”Andrea Dworkin, Our Blood (via themotivationjournals)
Yes. Absolutely. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that if you don’t feel lost at 17, you are either a sociopath, a striver or, or … something vaguely suspicious.It’s so fucking hard to be a teenager. It is so hard. I HATED high school. To this day, I have anxiety dreams that I’ve gone back. I still hurt from some things that happened then … and I’m 32.
But please take hope: it will get much better, much faster than you think. Once you leave high school, you never have to go to high school ever again. And you made it through the worst part, which is middle school. From here, the world begins opening itself to you. You feel lost because you are in the midst of a huge sea change; you are becoming who you are, and you don’t know who you are yet.
So don’t think of it as being lost. Think of it as a place where you are for now, but will not be forever. Everything in life is only for now.

“Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into a person you are not.”Paulo Coelho
“Because when you automate a job that has largely been done manually, you make it hugely more productive.” And when that happens, he explained, “prices go down and demand goes up” for the product. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, many people had one set of clothes—and they were all man-made. And by the end of that century, most people had multiple sets of clothing, drapes on their windows, rugs on their floors, and upholstery on their furniture. That is, as the automation in weaving went up and the price went down, “people found so many more uses for cloth, and so demand exploded enough to actually offset the substitution of more machines for labor,”Excerpt From: Thomas L. Friedman. “Thank You for Being Late.”
Feeling you get when one of your favorite nearby malls get to renovate and you ride their brand new escalators and you feel good?
When the media rampages on the bad industrial practices of a company, it will shut its doors in a short time thereafter because people these days are dead serious about health issues.
Now, we introduce THAYERS, a prominent American pharmaceutical, herbal, and beauty company. Actually, it has been around since 1847 when Dr. Henry Thayers started Henry Thayer and Company thru a laboratory at Cambridge, Massachusetts.
This laboratory aimed to develop and produce Thayer’s new line of herbal extracts for sale to the medical profession.
Early on, it was already an award winning company. For excellence in the preparation of fluid extracts, it was awarded a silver medal by the American Institute of New York in 1855. In 1856, the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Association awarded the company for designing a remarkable apparatus to produce the extracts.
During the height of the Civil War in the 1860s, Thayers was the biggest pharmaceutical company in the USA.
Thayers has always been known to utilize herbal ingredients in its products. From the barks of the witch hazel and the slippery elm; to the therapeutic effects of rose petal water, lemongrass, and aloe vera. And whenever possible, alcohol free.
In saline nasal sprays and lip balms, the active organic ingredient is mucilage (sourced from the inner bark of the slippery elm tree). Mucilage comforts the throat by soaking it, reducing its soreness. The irritation of mucous membranes is minimized, stopping the cough.
If you are the type of person who is sensitive of changes in weather, like cold to hot or vice versa, the THAYERS SALINE NASAL SPRAY is your best friend against allergies.
With the change in the weather, also comes the chafing and the dryness of the lips. Despair no more because THAYER LIP BALMS are here. Also with mucilage (slippery elm) as their active ingredients, your most important kisser will just have the right amount of moisture on it.
Toners are almost always interchanged with astringents. But they are different. Toners are water-based and astringents are alcohol-based.
THAYERS ROSE PETAL WATER TONER
This is the famous alcohol free toner of Thayers. It is concocted with rose water, aloe vera and extracts from the bark of the witch hazel which could only be found in the Americas. Helps hydrate the skin and clean off excess dirt or grime which your facial cleanser didn’t take care of. And you never feel guilty because it’s alcohol free.
