Happy Birthday Norma Jean

Marilyn Monroe would have turned 85 today if she were still alive. She was a true icon, the epitome of hollywood glamour, and people have continued to be fascinated by or obsessed with her even after her tragic early death. She was beautiful, charming and had a good head on her shoulders. Some of my favorite quotes come from her, and they seem so far ahead of her time, embracing what a modern woman is and should be treated as. Here is one that everyone can learn from:

"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 that you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together" 

Amen sister!

I love Norma Jean. She is so inspiring. She rose out of poverty and made a name for herself despite what the haters said!
