I'm so happy that I finally got my Marilyn Monroe prizes in the mail today. This contest was a twitter contest by 'The Marilyn Monroe Estate' and 'Madame Tussauds NY Museum'. This contest was on June 1st which was Marilyn's birthday and they choose the 4 winners for this contest on June 4th. I was one of the 4 winners, which I was so happy about because i'm a huge Marilyn Monroe fan, I love her so much. Something a lot of people might not know is that I actually have a lot of things in common with Marilyn and that's why I love her so much. One of them being we both had difficult childhoods and we both had BIG dreams growing up even tho it was painful during those times. But the one thing I really love about Marilyn and that really got to me was this quote by her "I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, 'There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest." That quote spoke to me because I could relate to it so much. One of them being is that I like to stand by my widow at night and look out into the galaxy and look at the stars and the night sky and just lay my head against the wall and dream of maybe one day becoming this successful movie star, and not only a movie star but an amazing person who will do lots for our world. The other is whens she says "There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star." One thing that is always on my mind is this. This is a one in a million Jorge, your not that talented, you have no connections, you have no money why do you think they will pick you to be something, when there much better looking guys who are much more talented then you are, you don't stand a chance. But then again maybe it's because I might not be like those guys, maybe because the only thing in my mind is my dream and maybe because i'm not afraid to bleed and die for my dreams. I don't want to grow old one day and regret not doing it. Some of the most successful people have been turned down many but many times and never gave up. Did you know 'Walt Disney' theme park concept was trashed 302 times? if he would have given up, there would be no Disney Theme Parks, and we all know how successful those are, there all over the world. So something I have in mind all that time is when you get told no, you pick yourself up again and try again and again until you have what you want. And it's when I think about this that I get the confidence to keep going for what I want. The other part of the quote I relate to is this part. "But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest." When ever those thoughts come into my head of the million of guys out there trying to make it, I just tell myself, we'll your dreaming the hardest, probably most of those guys want to be famous just because, and I want it because it's a dream, a feeling, it's my everyday life, it's my reason of living. But anyways Marilyn inspires me this way, that no matter how rough your past has been you can shine no matter what because everyone is a star in their own special, unique way. Another quote I like of Marilyn is "I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else." I also can feel this quote because I don't feel like I belong anywhere in society I only feel like I belong in the entertainment world and no where else, because i'm so different and weird. I also just want people to like me, and I feel that, that's the only way I will be liked by people and feel like i'm worth something in this world, I just want to be loved like I love all living things in our planet. Okay now I know I got really carry away in this post, it's much more then I was going to write about, I was just planning on telling you what I got, but I really like the way this blog went, because it has much more feeling to it and my online blog is like my personal journal. Anyways you can see what I got in the photos above, and I also plan on putting the big Marilyn framed picture somewhere were I can look at it, so I can remind myself to dream BIG and try harder to accomplish my dreams because nothing is impossible, that word does not exist in my book, everything is possible, it's just how hard your willing to try to get it. By the way the box was really big, I was so excited to open it, Thank You to 'The Marilyn Monroe Estate' and 'Madame Tussauds NY Museum' for the gifts and also Thank You everyone for reading and the love, Much Love to you all,  ♥
