a penny for your thoughts

And on this Good Friday today, a quote to remind you of the important things in life:

"This life is what you make it.
Not 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 [brothers] 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." 

That Marilyn, she was onto something genius a long time ago. Time to listen up.
