LIFE: it’s a beautiful thing.

LIFE it’s a beautiful thing.

“This life is what you make it. Not 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….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 ran into this quote last week sometime…and absolutely fell in love with. Marilyn really summed it all up….

This life is definitely a beautiful thing and it’s up to us to decide what we want to make of it. I love how nonchalant she is about making mistakes….because it really is a universal truth that NONE of us are perfect. But not only do we get to choose how we’re going to mess up, but how we’re going to carry ourselves and react when we do…it’s all in our hands.

But best and most important is her advice on always believing ourselves. To keep our head and chin up, to keep smiling, to never give up…to always believe in ourselves..because she’s absolutely right, if we don’t believe in ourselves, then who will?

Keep smiling and keep believing…because life really is a beautiful thing!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
