"You have more to do
than be weighed down
by pretty or beautiful
you are a fiery heart
and a wicked brain
do not let your soul
be defined by its shell."
Michelle K. (You Look So Pretty!)
"One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful."
Sigmund Freud, The Letters of Sigmund Freud (via symbolismo)
When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine — an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more.
