Female BAMFs Throughout History
Bad ass women
I haven’t uploaded anything to SoundCloud in over a month. So here’s something I recorded at my buddy Q.Ledbetter's place a couple of years ago.
"Green, Green Rocky Road" was written by Len Chandler and Robert Kaufman. It’s been recorded by a bunch of different artists, most notably Dave Van Ronk. My favorite version is the one from Karen Dalton's posthumously released album, 1966.
I can’t wrap my head around how someone can act like you mean something to them when you’re alone together yet the second you’re apart it’s like you never existed at all…
"And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love."-Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love (via quantumfemme)
You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary." -Julien Smith (via lipfused)
