“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” – Marilyn Monroe
Such a gem of a quote! It is true too. While of course women should be equal to men in all ways that it makes sense, there is no reason that a woman can’t aspire to be extraordinary.
Unfortunately, even 50 years since Monroe said this quote, women still make less money on average and are not allowed many of the same rights and freedoms as men. It seems silly when you think about it. I don’t know anyone who is actually sexist in real life, yet these kinds of problems still persist. Specifically in some areas.

Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.
When you are going through a breakup it can be really tough. You still have feelings for your ex, whether or not you were the one to break up with them or be broken up with.

Whatever that personality is, is less important than if you are showing your true self. It is easy to play a role and be perfect, but that is just what it is, an act you are playing.
Many people try to do this in life. They take on too much and try to be all things to all people. They put on an act, to avoid realizing some hard things about themselves. This could be any number of things – but in the end they are just running away from themselves.… Read the rest
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough”
This is an amazing quote from Mae West, who was a moviestar, playwright and sex symbol during the golden age of Hollywood. She was known as a bawdy type of women at the time and pushed the boundaries of how a woman could act. She started her career as a circus and vaudeville performer in New York, before moving to Hollywood to pursue a career as an actress.
In this quote, she is referring to her own life, which was at the time portrayed as larger than life. She was a superstar, and was living exactly the life she wanted to be living, without regard for the social norms or roles at the time.… Read the rest
