I make mistakes and say the wrong thing almost every day. Sometimes, I even hurt other people.
In return, the people around me say and do the wrong thing and sometimes even hurt me.
Thus, imperfection surrounds me.
But, I’ve also come to realize that I’m lucky, because no one expects me to be perfect. Celebrities are the people who carry that burden.
So even though Marilyn Monroe and I have absolutely nothing in common, I will always love her quote about understanding that something good usually grows out of our less than perfect moments.
Say what you will about Marilyn, but she nailed the need for all of us to turn disappointment into hope.
And that always makes me smile.
