This Life..


“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”  Marilyn Monroe

I found this today while doing research for a project at work and instantly fell in love with it and had to share.   There is no denying, Marilyn Monroe went through a lot of pain and hardship yet it seems she knew what it meant, Life.  To use the cliche ‘been there, done that, burned the t-shirt’ would be frivolous, but true.

But then so have you, and you with the beer, and you over there eating ice cream and reading this post.  Yeah my mistakes, joys and heartaches are all my own, but then so are yours, and while it may not matter what measures of each your life consistently deals with, what does matter is that I can say, ‘I know. I really know..’ and mean it.  You’re not alone…

Life is one of the most dizzying roller coaster rides out there, but if you’re anything like me, you’d grab another ticket and stand in line to do it over, and over, and over again as many times as they’d let you, or until they shut down the circus.

I know I’m that way – a creamy chocolate eclair wrapped by a glutton for punishment, so sweet and yummy on the inside but pure hell getting there!
