We are all works of art in our own, unique way. Embrace your qualities and embrace the qualities in others. Even if some of those qualities annoy you to no end.

1. Free your heart from hatred.

2. Free your mind from worries.

3. Live simply.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less.

6. Play mini golf.

On this day in 1820 The Venus de Milo was discovered on the Aegean island of Melos. The sculpture was created at some time between 130 and 100 BC, and is believed to depict Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans) the Greek goddess of love and beauty. It is made of marble, slightly larger than life size at 6' 8" high, and its arms and original plinth have been lost. Anyone holding these missing pieces, please contact the Louvre.
