{ lupita }

Lupita Nyong'o won an Oscar last night for her portrayal of Patsy in 12 Years a Slave. I absolutely love everything about her. She has this beautiful spirit that's genuine, kind, and full of energy. Here is her speech from Essence about being beautiful, which made me love her even more.

What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you.

{ the closet }

Ash Bechkam has this inspiring Ted Talk today about what it means to be "in the closet". It's not just for the gays who haven't come out to loved ones about their homosexuality. Actually, we can all relate to being in the closet because as Beckham explains it, it's just a hard conversation. We should have the courage to own up to what's real and be able to live like we own our lives.
The closet is not a place where a person should live.
