| Filed under: InspirationViral: News

You're never too old to accomplish a goal.

Marie Hunt of Spring Green, Wisconsin just earned her high school diploma … at the age of 103!

The centenarian was supposed to graduate the class of 1928, but she dropped out of school to take care of her siblings.

Marie says not graduating was one of the biggest regrets of her life:

"It's something I always wanted to do. I didn't have the opportunity to go and now 100 years later, here I am!"

She wore a cap and gown at her assisted living facility as her honorary diploma was presented.

What an inspiration!

We definitely approve of these!

If you live in New York City or Philadelphia you may notice some street signs that are not government issued — but probably should be!

A non-profit clothing company called Feminist Apparel have put up street signs that say "NO CATCALL ZONE" around various parts of the cities in an attempt to discourage sexual harassment on the streets!

[ Video: How Many Times Did This Woman Get Catcalled Just For Walking Around New York City?? ]

The signs are just in time for 2015's Anti-Street Harassment Week (April 12-18), a movement to end "catcalls, sexist or sexual comments, homophobic and transphobic slurs, flashing, groping, stalking, and assault in public spaces."

We LOVE how creative these signs are, and how they're sure to raise tons of awareness for this a important cause!

No woman should ever be made to feel unsafe just from walking through the city, and we hope these signs get that message across!

Plus-Size Fashion Blogger's Swimsuit Photo Goes Viral For Its Inspiring Message!

| Filed under: InspirationBikiniBodyInstagram

Plus-size blogger's bikini photo goes viral!

Body positivity is going viral lately, and we love it!

[ Related: Mom's Bikini Photo Goes Viral ]

A couple of weeks ago, plus-size fashion blogger Jessica Kane posted some photos of herself and friends in swimsuits on the beach.

When people commented that she was brave for not covering up her body, she was compelled to write an inspiring message about what she believes is truly brave.

She said:

"THIS WAS NOT BRAVE. I've been told how brave I am for not having a coverup, but going with out a wrap would only take bravery if I cared what others thought of me, but I don't. I spend my time worrying about things I CAN control and this day, I was only thinking about how fab I felt and how much sun I was catching ☀️👍 Things that DO take bravery?

A family battling tragic illness, a mother trying to beat addiction, a person trying to break free of domestic violence, reaching out for help when you have already planned your suicide and feel like you can't breath one more day. THAT is brave. Not wearing a swimsuit at the beach. LIVE life and only worry about what really matters 💯."

The picture and message quickly went viral, which Jessica acknowledged with an update on her original post:

Gwyneth Paltrow TOTALLY Cheated On Her $29 Food Stamp Challenge — Read Her Confession HERE!

| Filed under: InspirationGwyneth PaltrowFoodGIFs

Gwyneth Paltrow recaps her first week of attempting to survive on $29 a week!

About a week ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was challenged by chef Mario Batali to survive on $29 worth of food stamps a week.

So did she make it??

Well, no. After spotting her grabbing a romantic meal with boyfriend Brad Falcuhk, we had a feeling she didn't…

The Iron Man actress revealed in her latest Goop newsletter:

"As I suspected, we only made it through about four days, when I personally broke and had some chicken and fresh vegetables (and in full transparency, half a bag of black licorice). My perspective has been forever altered by how difficult it was to eat wholesome, nutritious food on that budget, even for just a few days—a challenge that 47 million Americans face every day, week, and year.

A few takeaways from the week were that vegetarian staples liked dried beans and rice go a long way—and we were able to come up with a few recipes on a super tight budget."

Hopefully this *attempt* brings even more awareness to the issue that so many people face in the US.

Although, it would have totally been better had she actually set out to do what she promised!

Alas, celebrities — they are NOT like us!

On her 20th birthday, the Thinking Out Loud singer stopped by the Auckland hospital to visit the birthday gal!

Jess shared her selfie with Ed and thanked everyone who helped made this meeting possible:
