No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.

This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.

Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.

We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.

 #sometimes the family you start with isn’t a good one #but you can find your own #family is not absolute #blood is not absolute

reblogging because I have narcissist for parents and all I ever wanted as a kid was to be Matilda

Focus T25 Day 32

After a seriously painful reformatting of my computer (which I use for t25), and a foot of snow that I didn’t need, I finished my first workout of the week. Still strong, which makes me happy. I’m having a hard time just saying “okay, I did the workout for today, good job!” instead of “OMG YOU ARE SO FAR BEHIND YOU’RE GOING TO DIE IF YOU DON’T FINISH EVERY WORKOUT EVER EXACTLY WHEN YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO”

It’s hard, but I’m trying. Ideally it will get to the point where I don’t NEED to try.

Let’s face it, eating well is expensive… or it can be. Buying produce that is either organically (or biodynamically grown) is not cheap. But ingesting pesticide residue is anything but ideal.

Luckily, you can shave a few bucks off your grocery bill by growing a few of those staples from your diet. Best part, it is much easier than you think! You don’t need seeds or anything fancy. You can simply use kitchen scraps from your next meal. How great is that!

Cooking stoned? Is that a class?
