One of the most uplifting songs of all time.

(Source: Spotify)

"But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn
All the love I have is in my mind?

Well, I’m a lucky man
With fire in my hands

Happiness
Something in my own place
I’m standing naked
Smiling, I feel no disgrace
With who I am

Happiness
More or less
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Happiness
Coming and going…

(It’s just a change in me; something in my liberty.)”

I’ve learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. That it’s not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts.

Ask the average person if there’s any nomadic herdsmen in their family, and you’ll probably be met with a blank expression. 

For the past 15 years, Dutch photographer Jeroen Toirkens has been traveling the globe capturing nomadic tribes and their disappearing way of life.

"There’s no sense in being self conscious and worrying about yourself because everyone else is doing the same thing. So when you think that someone is judging you, they’re just scared to death of what you’re thinking of them."

"She gets sexed up"

"It’s inappropriate."

"A terrible example for young girls."

"Does being yourself mean wear swanky clothing and wear a lot of makeup?"

Yes, actually it can.

I hate when people say this about Elsa. I HATE IT.

First I would like to mention that when people say “be yourself” some people don’t really mean. What they mean is don’t try to hard, don’t put too much makeup, don’t wear clothes that are too tight or comfy, stay comfortable. And for some people, that is not themselves.

Some people like to put on a lot of makeup.

Some people like wearing revealing clothing.

Some people like to look rebellious.

You can’t hold that against them.

AND ITS THE SAME THING FOR ELSA.

All her life, she was told to be this quiet, poised, conservative girl. A girl who wears long dresses, capes. A girl who doesn’t talk back, doesn’t act up. She was trapped. She was trapped in a little box full of responsibilities.

And now she’s LETTING GO.

Did you even listen to the freaking song?

She’s becoming what she wants to be. She’s letting go of the past and heading straight into the future. And no one affects what she looks like. There is no boy she wants to impress. No townspeople. No parents. 

She’s doing all of this for herself.

And I don’t know about you, but I think that this is a great example to set for little girls, afraid to be themselves.

friendly reminder that Elsa built her ice castle with the sole intention of spending the rest of her life there cut off from contact with anyone else. she literally planned on shutting herself in and not interacting with other people. meaning every change she made was solely for herself. and honestly, after spending her whole life scared to touch people and making sure her skin was covered (most specifically her hands), her dress change sequence in Let It Go felt like she was finally breaking out of that “be the good girl you always have to be” mold she’d been placed in—emphasis on ‘girl.’ Elsa’s spent her whole life trying so hard to stay contained, she never had a chance to really grow up normally and come into her own as a woman. i see this scene as her taking charge of her womanhood, allowing herself to exist freely as she wants to and no longer confined by the expectations placed on her.

YES.

THIS

A part of me wants to draw out different versions of myself “letting go”, because for me, letting go would be me wearing Rooster teeth shirts and froofy skirts with cat tights, wearing cute makeup, and flaunting my legs with heeled boots. Letting go can be so many things for so many people—and for Elsa, it’s letting go of the fear of bare skin, liberal use of cosmetics, and comfortable hairdos. It’s not “being sexy” during her journey of self-discovery and empowerment—its just letting go.
