“Is everything all right? Is everything all right? Hmm, hold on a minute, let me see… My mom is going out with my algebra teacher, a subject I’m flunking, by the way; my best friend hates me; I’m fourteen years old and I’ve never been asked out; I don’t have any breasts; and oh, I just found out I’m the princess of Genovia.”
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all. From now on you’ll be traveling the road between who you think you are and who you can be. The key is to allow yourself to make the journey.
i don’t actually think i’ve said this on here before but Mia Thermopolis means so much to me. she’s neurotic and lies too much and is far, far from perfect but she just got me through a lot in my early teens and i will forever be thankful to Meg Cabot for creating her.
I’m currently rereading The Princess Diaries for #theprincessdiariesreadalong hosted by @tea-books-lover & @pagesfullofstars and I’m enjoying it so much! I missed Mia and her hilarious diary entries. And Michael Moscovitz 😍
