So, here's my little bit of magic and hope for this sunny spring afternoon, lovelies: here's to being not only fabulous, but unafraid to be real: true blue you! Be kind and make people smile, do your thing, and don't fret about what people who don't matter to you might be thinking - after all, sometimes you must just make like Alice and just say:
As Queen Elizabeth II says, "You need to learn to stand up for yourself and what you believe and sometimes, pardon my language, kick some ass." Awesome!
And I can definitely get behind Bogue's other advice: "The truth is that you’re going to have to live a pretty extraordinary lifestyle if you’re going to stand out above the noise. How are you going to do that? By doing something different, and doing it with a full heart."
I'm going to keep living my life, as much as I can, whole-heartedly and utterly unashamedly, as an early-1990s Disney princess [see below!] and a Narnian heroine...
"She believes in love and romance. She believes her life is going to be transformed into something wonderful and exciting. She has hopes and fears, just like anyone. Sometimes she feels frightened. Sometimes she feels unloved. Sometimes she feels she will never gain approval from those people who are most important to her. But she’s brave, and goodhearted and faces her life head on." -Sophie Kinsella
Here's to you, gorgeous: raise a glass, don a crown of daisies, and stay true to you!
