by Marilyn Monroe

I don't know who invented high heels,
but all women owe him a lot.

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 PHOTO

Sometimes good things fall apart
so better things can fall together.

listens but doesn't believe,
and leaves before she is left.

fame.

So at least it's something I experience,
but that's not where I live.
- Marilyn Monroe

After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.

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.

with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
