MYTHOLOGY MEME | [7/9] GREEK GODS & GODDESSES » HERA
Hera was the goddess of marriage and childbirth, and the queen of Olympus in Greek mythology. She was born the daughter of Rhea and Cronus, and when the Titanomachy was overthrown, would marry her brother, Zeus. Her children included Ares, Enyo, Eris Hebe, and Hephaestus. Hera was seen as a scornful goddess as her marriage with Zeus was one full of strife, and ironically, despite being the personification of familial harmony, Hera’s personal life was filled with jealousy and discord. However, those she favored were ultimately blessed with goodwill, and her role as the queen of Olympus was one that was ultimately unquestioned as she was the most supreme of women in the Greek pantheon.
I wanted what lay outside of Paradise,
a world without the burden of perfection.
Now you call all sinful women my sisters.
I say, let them claim their own damn sins.
The apple may not be perfect, but it’s mine." From Eve Argues Against Perfection by Diane Lockward (via hush-syrup)

I get up at 5am and I train hard. I’ve got two young children, so I have to get up early. But I like it. Morning is when I do all my best work. Whenever I wake up, I’m up, I don’t lie there like an idiot. I get up, run up a hill, get some exercise and have some time with my thoughts.
