A Quote For Life

“I must learn to love the fool in me–the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool.” — Theodore I. Rubin, MD

Women CAN have it all…Helen Gurley Brown {quotes}

Sad news hit this week that Helen Gurley Brown died. If you’re not sure who she was and you’re female then get yourself to google STAT!

“Nearly every glamorous, wealthy, successful career woman you might envy now started out as some kind of schlep.”

One thing that Helen Gurley Brown believed in was that women can have it all. By having it all she wasn’t talking about being super woman and being able to juggle a top ceo position and 3 kids under 5. Instead she means you can have a great sex life, money, a job you love, a family, a social life etc She was THE ultimate modern woman.

“Beauty can’t amuse you, but brainwork—reading, writing, thinking—can.”

There are so many lessons we can learn from Brown. Her ethos of having a life you love and not caring what anyone else thinks is something which I aspire to achieve.

“Good girls go to heaven. Bad girls go everywhere.” Continue reading “Women CAN have it all…Helen Gurley Brown {quotes}”
