Natural Harmonies

"This life is what you make it. No 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 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."
--Marilyn Monroe

I came across this quote today and I drowned.  Personally, I love finding big inspirational quotes like this one.  They give me mega chills.

We’re all fighting, aren’t we?  Fighting to find ourselves.  Fighting to find who and what will make us smile.

There’s a blogger that I really, really love, and you can read her blog here.  In one of her recent posts, she wrote about inner peace.  And really, what’s inner peace to you?  Clear mind?  Perfect life?  All is well, right?  Maybe not.  The way she sees it, and I must say that I agree, is that bad things are going to happen.  Life’s not fair, and things are thrown at us every single day that we don’t expect..  So, maybe inner peace isn’t reaching perfection and living the life that everyone wants.  That isn’t possible.  Maybe, inner peace is simply finding peace with yourself no matter what situation you’re in.
