9 Reasons Why Hitting Rock Bottom Will Make You Stronger

9 Reasons Why Hitting Rock Bottom Will Make You Stronger

“Maybe your business has failed or your venture gone off track. Maybe you were supposed to be the next Steve Jobs, but it’s all gone bad. For whatever reason, you find yourself in a place you never imagined–rock bottom.

But failure is not fatal and rock bottom is not forever, unless you make it so. There are very important lessons to learn when you’ve hit rock bottom. Here are nine of the most important:

1. You’re may not be who you thought you were. When you’re down and out, you’re forced to confront yourself as you probably never have before. It’s when you’re at your most broken and weak that you can dig down through your vulnerabilities to the strength to stand strong. It is in loss and imperfection that you can see how perfectly human you are.

2. The only difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is how you use them. Hitting rock bottom is a powerful reminder not to carry your mistakes around with you but to place them under your feet, to turn your stumbling blocks–all you failures, pain, mistakes, and foibles–stepping stones on your way to success.

3. What you thought you wanted may not be what you need. Sometimes painful circumstances turn out, months or years after the fact, to point you in a new direction that you didn’t even know existed before.

4. You stand taller after having been knocked down. When you’ve learned to forget what is gone and appreciate what still remains, you can approach the future with new energy and higher standards. You can be strong because you experienced weakness; you can be fearless because you have experienced fear; you can be wise because you have experienced failure.”

Plus-Size Models Shocking Pics Show How Misleading Photoshop Is

Plus-Size Models Shocking Pics Show How Misleading Photoshop Is

Myself and @calliethorpe have asked our photographer @photo_karizza to use photoshop on us. I have to say we look amazing both ways.

Where it all started ^ We posted this picture online, just as best friends going out on the weekend, it got reposted a lot and the controversy started.. You have photoshopped yourself thinner or your friend bigger, what kind of friend are you? Was one of the comments, it broke my heart because Kate and I are best friends why would I do that? The fact that a simple picture of two people together went so viral purely because of their body types shocked me… and @any.body_co was created because no one should have to deal with that and it shouldn't even be acknowledged, all I see here is two women.. not one "skinny" woman and one "curvy" woman, stop comparing everyone to each other and accept every person as beautiful in their own right. #loveanyBODY

The purpose of this was to show you all how magazines and the media takes editing to a different level. Models and celebrities do not even look like theirselves.

We live in such a fake world it’s time to bring real back. Own who you are and slay!

Augmented Reality is an awesome new experience gaining in popularity and now Microsoft’s HoloLens is now being used for performing Bowel Cancer Surgery. Not a particularly elegant usage for the technology but still super cool.

Surgeon Shafi Ahmed is using mixed reality Hololens technology to perform bowel cancer surgery. Mr Ahmed is able to consult with surgeons in other parts of the world while in the operating theatre. The surgeons can access a patient’s records and make notes for each other as an operation progresses. Mr Ahmed also plans to use the technology to train others globally and conduct virtual operations.

“The world is a giant dumpster fire right now, and if you’re a woman you probably just want to crawl into bed and never come out. I know. I know. I feel your pain.”

“Maybe you want to send one to your boss when he thanks your male co-worker for an idea you’ve been pushing for weeks. Maybe you want to send one to that person who just commented, “I don’t see how this is helping anything” on the #MeToo post you just shared. Maybe you want to send one to your racist Aunt Shelley. I don’t know! They’re so versatile! They can really be used for anything.”
