Rebels Unite


Here's to the crazy ones
The misfits. The rebels.
The trouble makers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo. 
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only you can't do, is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent.
They imagine.
They heal.
They explore.
They create.
They inspire.
They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see them as genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

I used to do 'Lundi Love' every Monday & then stopped, but decided to resurrect it as I felt it was something I really enjoyed and what I had set out to do when I began this thing. So, I'll try and do it more often. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I love quotes and all that stuff, they give me a lift when I'm feeling the strains of the world. But, I was thinking the other day..what is my quote, what will I leave behind for people to get a lift from!?! I had to think really hard, because I'm always saying lots of things, and then something popped in there...'Imitation is the lowest form of flattery'..I know your thinking to the famous quote and wondering why would I say it that way?? Well, when we imitate someone we are cutting off the very source that makes us amazing - ourselves!! I don't want to inspire people to be just like me, I'd like to inspire people to be their very best selves. Because when you think on it, the very people you are bending over backwards to emulate, are the very people who are striving to just be themselves too. Be strange, be anything but mediocre, you only get one shot at life, live it up, go wild, wear what you wish as long as your not hurting anyone (hence the riots) have fun :) Because when your old and grey, you may be sitting there wishing you had done those things, but the time will have passed.  Have a life that screams 'I Am Anything But Normal'!! Because what is normal anyways!!?!! ;D

Have a fun day beauties!!
xoxoxo

I challenge everyone to adopt this fear. I challenge everyone to run from any hint of normalcy and to shun the act of settling for merely “good enough.” You are great. Anybody can lead a normal life, but you are not anybody – You are somebody. You are somebody that deserves more than “good enough.” You deserve exceptional.


Just some of the woman who I feel have done this in their life & inspire me, us women have done amazing things in the world, we can be whatever it is we want to be!! I used just women as I feel things are run by men enough & this is my space ;) hehe

Grace Jones - Model, Actress, singer - Madness makes life more fun & so does not caring for the approval of others ;)

Agyness Deyn - Fashion model, actress and singer. Your beauty isn't held in your hair, clothes or loads of make-up..it shines from your heart & soul :)


Betsey Johnson - whimsical fashion designer (one of my very faves) Live a colourful life!!


Kate Bush - singer, writer, producer, artist, dancer! I adore her <3


Helena Bonham Carter - Actress! Wear your own wings & soar like a bird!


Cyndi Lauper - singer, actress, Human Rights activist, quirky is stunning!!



Theda Bara - American Silent screen star, one of the most popular, she just shines!


Audrey Hepburn - Actress & humanitarian for UNICEF



Harriet Tubman - African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War



Christina Hendricks, Actress & healthy role model for women who wish to learn to love the skin that covers their beautiful bones!


Rosa Parks, human rights activist, a gentle soul!


Annie Lennox, singer and activist, androgyny love!

Angela Davis - political activist, writer, scholar, women can be smart AND beautiful!


And Best of all:

  27. What a fantastic post! I wish I had read it first thing this morning, its lifted me right up!

    I totally agree. Don't conform to anything other than who you are! I love edgy people, colourful characters and androgynous muses, but not really like that myself. If I was, it wouldn't be being me!

    I think everyone should just embrace themselves. A good heart is miles better than a good haircut!

  32. What a fab, fab, fab post! I can't believe I actually like something that's been done as an advert for Apple... It's all so right though and so important to be a bit mad, be yourself and do what feels right for yourself. Thanks for a great post xo
