Hello Dolls,

I'm feeling rather inspired and uplifted today. We should feel this way all the time shouldn't we? But the truth is we don't. Everyone gets tired, exhausted and eventually tries to settle for less or for something that isn't really the objective they were heading towards or the goal they wanted to reach in life. DON'T SETTLE! I feel that if you are in the position were you don't have to take care of a child or have any other life changing responsibility, then you my friend have an obligation to yourself to RUN FOR YOUR LIFE towards the direction you want to be in. I was someone who invested time into something that wasn't right for me and I'm glad I changed my mind FAST. You only have 1 life, people tend to forget that.

On a brighter note I would like to leave you with some quotes that help me through my moments of darkness.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
-Marilyn Monroe

"Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”
-Audrey Hepburn

"At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since."
-Salvador Dali

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.

"We are people who want to play dress-up all day—we don’t want to know about all the pain in the world."
-Kelly Cutrone

"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination."
-Jimmy Dean

"You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else."
-Albert Einstein

"I wish you all the best in everything, Kick Ass!"
