"Thats the real trouble with the world. Too many people grow up!" ~ Walt disney.

What we take it to mean:
We have all wished at some point that we were older, either to feel more mature, sophisticated, or simply to be able to do more things. But what we forget is that being young is amazing! Imagination, creativity, fun and laughter are all things that we need to remember, well into adult life. Plus we would miss watching all the disney films!

"It always seems impossible until it is done." ~ Nelson Mandela

What we take it to mean:

Feeling disheartened, and probably lying in bed stuffing oneself with chocolate, what we tend to forget is just how far we have come! With determination, creativity and tons of Ben and Jerry's; We will get there.

If you have visited this blog before, you know just how much we adore Marilyn Monroe. Her strength, beauty and bursting personality are nothing on her attitude towards the "size zero" industry.

~ anon. 

What we take it to mean:
