The Sunday edition of the Chicago Tribune featured an article about a new company that gives you the chance to dress like an icon. The article wasn't long, but I was intrigued, so I decided to look it up. The company, www.phoenixproject.com, focuses on creating high end reproductions worn by celebrity icons of years gone by.
The Million Dollar Quartet
As I went through the pictures, I couldn't help but think about the people and their lives. They struggled with many of the same issues that we do. James Dean, Amelia Earhart, and Elvis Presley met a very tragic end to their lives. But all of them followed their dreams and took chances. I'm reminded of one of my favorite quotes,
"When we look at a statue of someone great, we think they've got something we don't. We are trained to think that only a tiny percentage of us have the stuff it takes to be a hero. Not many of us will cure any diseases or slay any dragons, but every single one of us, yes, every single one of us is called to be a king, a queen, a hero in our ordinary lives. We don't build statues to worship the exceptional life, we build them to remind ourselves what IS possible in our own."
Wishing you a wonderful start to the week.
