“Culture gives birth to thought and behavior, and decides what course they will take. As soon as we are born, culture begins to control us, deciding that we must engage in this or that behavior.” While his paintings initially seem optimistic, Zhang Jianlong wants us to understand that although we are often unaware of it, our freedom becomes more constrained as we conform to restrictions placed on us by culture. His hope is that we can temper the pull of culture by allowing “the innocence and vivaciousness of childhood” to reemerge.

Weight should be like virginity.
Once you lose it you can’t get it back

I literally have no idea what my personality is
Like I go from being an arrogant bitch to a studious, conscientious hard-worker, to a lazy procrastinator, to an overly-emotional fangirl
In a matter of seconds
so accurate it hurts
i wish i had a six pack
of chocolate bars

I’ve learned that when the enemy attacks, God reacts. God doesn’t just sit back and think, “Well, I wonder what’s going to happen. I wonder what they’re going to do.” No, God goes to work. You are His most prized possession. It says in Psalms, “God is close to those that are hurting. God is close to the broken hearted.” God knows when you’ve gotten a bad medical report. He knows when you’re struggling in your finances. He knows when you’re being mistreated. You may not see anything happening, but you can be assured that Almighty God is not only aware, He is at work. He already has the solution. If you will stay in faith, at the right time, He will release a flood of His power, a flood of healing, a flood of restoration. He will not only bring you out, He will bring you out better off than you were before!
