Morning sunshine: Drew Barrymore has advice on control, mistakes, gratitude, and being yourself (naturally somewhat NSFW)

I learned at a really young age that you cannot control people or nature and how it evolves. It’s an impossible task, and you will drive yourself nuts trying to do it.

If you repeatedly make mistakes and don’t learn from them, then that’s a rocky path. But if you burn the shit out of yourself and then go, “O.K., that hurt, but I’ve got it now,” then you can go on.


The truth is, I know it can all fucking go away again in a heartbeat. That’s why I will always be grateful for every job I get. And about life, what do you do? Do you become a cloistered nun and not live your life because of the fear of what people might think or say?

That last one about not living your life because of fear of what people might say … that is touching a nerve. I need to think about that. Isn’t she just the best? Pure sunshine, I’m serious!

    Reblogged this on SKRiV and commented:
    This dudette is strange in such way that she ‘comes thru the media’ very strong…she is very present and the pictures or film or whatever gives a transparant picture of her. Probably is the wiever projecting whatever on her but i find her cool, but these pictures are from her youth and the sexyness is too much. I like pix of her without that qality too!
