"Forever is composed of nows" -- Emily Dickinson

How to be Smarter: We reach back to boys from our past when boys in our present aren't working for us. Seriously thinking (not just fondly reminiscing) about past relationships means something big needs to change in your current one. How to be Prettier: I just love everything--everything--about this dress. I'd wear it with a black collarless blazer and tip-toe tall heels.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you're having a bad day, and you find yourself getting cranky at someone who doesn't deserve it, don't lash out--just think of them as a pampered poodle. It's pretty hard to say something mean to someone while you're busy imagining them as a cute, spoiled cuddly little pup.
