"If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough."

sosuperawesome:Beautiful Ballerinas Gracefully Dance Across Urban Streets

Photographer Dane Shitagi created the Ballerina Project as an ongoing exploration of the elegant beauty of ballerinas. The project initially began in Honolulu, Hawaii, but has since taken to the city streets of New York, Boston, and Toronto. Each composition elegantly combines the smooth lines and curves of a ballerina’s body, strikingly contrasted with the geometric shapes of busy urban landscapes.

Shitagi has developed this ongoing project across 12 years, and he says it’s not your typical dance photography project, but rather, “an etching of ballerinas’ hearts and emotions.” His beautifully precise subjects are placed softly against the harsh urban surroundings, and each creative juxtaposition is more expressive than the next.

"I did not like to be touched, but it was a strange dislike. I did not like to be touched because I craved it too much. I wanted to be held very tight so I would not break. Even now, when people lean down to touch me, or hug me, or put a hand on my shoulder, I hold my breath. I turn my face. I want to cry."
