Normally I don’t watch many Facebook videos, but the other night while I was waiting for my pasta to boil I happen to scroll across a video collage of Drew Barrymore posted by Refinery29. I’ve always been a fan of hers, and whatever made me pause on her video was definitely fate. After a few scrolling quotes and a look at her rise to move actress stardom (E.T. and endless Adam Sandler shots) they made a segue to show her speaking at a conference about her Cosmetics Line, FLOWER Beauty. In a brief 10 seconds she said the quote I have typed out below, and I don’t think I will ever forget it…
You have to find people and things that make you feel like there is no ceiling to what you can do, and who you can be.
Seriously Drew, Amen to you and your unwavering sense of happiness and life. You could not be more spot on. This is basically my entire mantra these days, and it was so nice to hear it put in such an effortless yet powerful way. I was inspired, and thought you might be as well.
p.s. I had to share a photo of this insane Ariadne Bib from Baublebar. It’s my new favorite piece!
