In the early days of her career, Maggie Gyllenhaal was repeatedly rejected for roles because she wasn’t conventionally pretty or sexy enough.
“You must have a boring idea of what beautiful or sexy is.”
This standard of beauty, ladies and gentlemen, is just one of many examples of where Hollywood went wrong. Where America is perhaps fatally flawed. But we don’t have to take it. We can reject their rejection.
Like Maggie Gyllenhaal, believe in the beauty of your dreams, but do not attach yourself to them.
Let go of your expectations, let them float away. And you will see that each day is a miracle. Each day is someone’s dream come true.
