Monroe wasn't a dumb blonde....


Just when you're ready to give up, throw in the towel, move on or have lost faith, something unexpected can happen. 
I've learned to never say never. I've learned that things happen when you least expect it. I've learned that things come into our life just when they should. I love this quote:

"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

That quote does contain all the reminders for us when things aren't going how we planned. However hearing "things happen for a reason" right off the bat when one of those "things" happens sometimes makes me want to poke people's eyes out.

Hope nothing sucky is happening to you that you needed this quote for yourself. :-(

Ive heard this quote before. and everytime I hear a quote that just sounds awesome it always comes from her...I think she was classic and there is no way just was just a dumb blonde. She was way smarter than she let on.

Love it!! I still go back to the old saying, "If life gives you lemons, make lemonades." It's not always pretty, it's not always fun.... but you jsut got to keep on keeping on!
