Inspiration for Friday

Hello all! Boy do I have a treat for you ;)

I've been reading a lot of inspirational things lately. And everyone is inspired by something different. For me, it's finding something so lovely that just warms my heart. I love things that are filled with beauty.
For my inspiration today, it's non other than the legendary Marilyn Monroe.
She is purley fabulous. She exudes so much fun and wonder. She's so very tounge-in-cheek and she was such a powerful woman.
Once, I took my car to get my windows tinted. The name of the place was Mr. 50s and I want you to imagine a waiting room with walls covered by mostly Marilyn Monroe with a little bit of James Dean and some Elvis. I seriously had to wait for my car for almost 4 hours. During that time, I had no other choice but to stare at this beautiful woman and just think about how much of a powerhouse she really was. As I was sitting there, I was sending texts back and fourth with Justin. I was so captivated by thinking of the world Marilyn lived in. I sent Justin a text saying "You know Marilyn Monroe, she was just so beautiful and she did so much. I wish I could be like that." And he replied back, "You already are and you can do anything." Well something of that sort. I wish I saved that text. But he was right. Just like Marilyn, anyone can make something beautiful of themself.

"We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets."

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

"If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty."

"Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world."

"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle."

"The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space."

"If I'd observed all the rules I'd never have got anywhere."
She was such an amazing woman. I think each one of us has a special place in this world and we were all meant to do something amazing like Marilyn.
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
Love to you all!
