It’s crazy. After nearly 50 years Marilyn Monroe is still the hottest woman around. Did you know that she sells more posters and novelties to the college crowd than any other modern day actress, actor or songster?
Why? That is a question many would love to know the answer to. What is it about her that draws millions of people to her grave every year? Or that she has fan clubs who honor her memory and guard it like she was family? Why is Marilyn such a beloved symbol of womanhood?
We believe that in part she was a woman who made no apologies for who she was. She did her own thing and lived her own life but she was kind and gentle to those she loved. While it is true that Marilyn had a few quirks, don’t we all, she accepted her flaws with grace and embraced her own unique personality.
As we approach the 50th anniversary of her death, may all women be like Marilyn, embrace ourselves, love ourselves and most of all accept who we are. As our beloved Marilyn once said, “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” Live the motto ladies! Love yourselves.
