des merveilles

Going somewhere, which I'm sure to do if I only walk long enough.

I'm from Australia and I'm passionate about travel, writing, and feminism. These are a few of my favourite things: NYC, Twin Peaks, Émile Zola, Stephen King, Broad City, It's Always Sunny, The X-Files, Peanuts, T. Rex, David Lynch, and Quentin Tarantino. I also love, love, love horror movies. I get shippy occasionally. These are my lady heroes. I have an Alice in Wonderland collection. I'm a child at heart and plan on staying that way. If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm your girl.

Je dois être fort.

Queer as Recreation pt. 2

lebeeson:

I have been so blessed to portray such a phenomenal woman as Dana Scully. She has taught me about strength and self-worth and personal power. In early episodes, when I was called upon to address large groups of male FBI agents with authority and self assurance, I felt so scared and weak that my voice would come out high-pitched and shaky. But the more I “acted as if” I was self-assured, the more I felt powerful. And believe it or not, it can be that simple. 

"Acting as if" is sometimes all it takes to empower oneself, and I have learned to carry this into other areas of my life. When meeting with high-powered directors and producers, or presenting an award at an award ceremony, or doing a talk show; I act as if I am a strong, capable, worthy woman of power. And the more I do this, the more people listen to what I have to say and value my opinion.

…the older I get, the more I see how women are described as having gone mad, when what they’ve actually become is knowledgeable and powerful and fucking furious.

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
