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 babe, 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.

    Her maturity level always was about that of a 14-year old. Is this out of a teen diary? Disney can only dream of being this dumb and schmalzty.

    Nice observation, mean delivery! We can be critical in a constructive way, no? Isn't that more mature on our part? I know it's a pain, we all tend to just be mean…but it's worth taking the time to put it more kindly. ~ W.
