The he for she movement

As (I hope) you are aware. Emma Watson gave a courageous and heart felt speech about feminism and equal rights.

In this speech, she talks about how the term feminism has gone hand in hand with men hating and has become an “ugly word”.

The New revolutionary movement called he for she is about making sure that woman’s right issues are to be everybodys concerns and fought for by all. It makes sense, we all share this earth as one after all. Any humanitarian issue is all of our issues to deal with.

I have always felt strongly about feminism and womans rights but never really felt a connection with any of the movements (yes all woman for example). But Emma’s speech does make complete sense. Equal rights is everybodys issue us woman and not alone in this battle anymore, it’s gone beyond woman’s right and is now about equal rights for any gender.

Please go to YouTube to view/listen to Emma’s moving talk. Who knows boys/men.. You might agree also.

What the future holds

Nobody knows what the future has in store for us. We can only dream about it. And that is scarily beautiful..

But what’s so wrong about living in the now. Forget about tomorrow. What do you want to do today?!

Ok, yes I’ve been “freaking” about my future.. What’s going to happen with my boyfriend? Will we get married/have kids? If so, when?
But I’ve came to a conclusion, I shouldn’t focus my future on a relationship, instead I should focus on other achievements. This year I went abroad for the first time, I overcame a big fear (planes) and achived one of my life goals! I sat out on the balcony in Turkey at 5:30 am and cried because for the first time I felt I was on the right path, I was exactly where I was supposed to be, my life seemed to make sense. I’ve never cried like that before, so open and honest.

This has boasted my confidence up so much. I feel that I can achieve and overcome anything if I truly want to. That said. I have been thinking about applying for an online Journalism course and have found one via London school of Journaliam. I will get a diplomia in a subject that appeals to me. What do you my amazing followers think. Need your opinions 🙂
