Don't you ever wish that you could be standing on Fifth Avenue at 5am in seamless black dress, holding your coffee and staring into the window of Tiffany's & Co.....No, well I certainly do.
For those of you who don't me, Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my all time FAVORITE movies and I absolutely ADORE Audrey Hepburn. To me she is the epitome of Style, Grace and Class; the three qualities I believe all women should possess.
There is a famous saying from Audrey that says;
"For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness, For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people, For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry, For Beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day, For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others."
I just love this!!! To me this is why the woman was the embodiment of class. She lets the whole world know that what's on the outside isn't what makes you beautiful, it's how you view the world and the people in it. If you can look past others flaws to find what makes them special and unique and beautiful, If you are able to encourage someone with your words of kindness that is what makes a person beautiful, not what they look like. This is what I want to strive for...
My 2nd favorite quote from Audrey is this; (and if you know me you will understand why)
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
I really don't feel like I need to explain why I like this one, just know that when life gets tough stay strong and know that God is in control, "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today" (Matt 6:34) and that even though everything is going wrong, "The sun will come out tomorrow" and that is because the God who created the universe told it to. Stop fretting and take time to think about what you have already in you life and realize that God has provided thus far and he will continue, even if you believe it is impossible...because last time I checked He is still in the miracle business. So have FAITH and smile and laugh and know that God is in Control.
Well that's all I know about that...
