Drew Barrymore's Positive Outlook Will Brighten Your Morning And Inspire You All Day Long

"I am happy just the way I am."


No matter what Drew Barrymore has experienced in her acting career or personal life, she's maintained a positive outlook that's empowered her to overcome obstacles and unleash her full potential. 

How does she do it? Well, she realized what she needed to be happy early in life — at age 7. 

That's right. Before most of us were able to tie our shoes, Barrymore had not only starred in a blockbuster film but had learned the secret to happiness.

In a childhood letter Barrymore shared on Instagram, she wrote, "I am happy just the way I am."

Kids may say the darnedest things, but they also say some of the wisest. 

Barrymore's childhood philosophy has guided her throughout her successful adult life. In an interview with Good Housekeeping, she advised its readers, saying "Happiness is the best makeup. A smile is going to be better than any lipstick you buy." 

"We were all put on this planet to make each other feel good," Barrymore added.

That sentiment couldn't be more true, or more Drew.
