Read that book, wake up early in the morning and go for that run to start off your day. Buy the nicest underwear and wear it to boost your mood. Eat as clean as possible because you’ll feel so much better but treat yourself as well. Be kind to everyone. Go out to a cafe and watch people walk buy as you sip your coffee. Compliment that stranger! Start a conversation with that person on the bus. Read a book about food, about astronomy, learn a new language. Watch the sunrise. Get away for a weekend. Introduce yourself. Do yoga and go on a hike. Lay on the beach under the stars and have a dnm with your best friend. Dance around and sing at the top of yours lungs at that festival. Life is meant to be lived, not controlled.

In the roles she created through her music, she faced the world not as a victim, but as a towering hero. Through her music, with its elegance and subtle dynamic artistry, she faced down a world of trouble. And somehow in these saucy meetings with trouble, in these magnificent songs, she managed to secure the power she so desperately sought. Indeed, she discovered a power more rare and complex than anything she had at first imagined possible: the power to create and, with her creations, capture and keep an audience’s deepest attention. In art she found the power to move the world.Lady Day: The Many Faces of Billie Holiday by Robert O'Meally

Charm is more valuable than beauty. You can resist beauty, but you can’t resist charm…
