“First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.”
Not that anyone is asking
but my opinion on Colbie Caillat’s new “Try” song and video…
Stop raving about this stupid video and expect women to actually have the capabilities to be less concerned about their image - what they are actually capable of, outside of using a makeup remover. This video is meant to empower women to be free from society’s standard’s of beauty, but I think the mere suggestion this is something we should be proud of ridding ourselves of is insulting and condescending on its own. I know this rant is obtuse, because, helloooo, this is pop music we are discussing, but I will channel my she-powers and throw my computer out this third floor window if see another strong woman that I respect credit this video as something “every woman should see.”
You absolutely should be trying: trying to engage more deeply, trying to learn more critically, trying to build a better foundation. And if you honestly see value in this video’s message, TRY a little harder to expect more out of yourselves and each other, ladies. I think we can hold each other to a bit of a higher standard than this.
