"Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard" -- Colin Powell

How to be Smarter: It can seem important to do something the "best way," but it's actually more important to do it the "best way for you." How to be Prettier: I really disliked the winter months until my best friend recommended this coat, which she also owns. It was an investment, but it has changed my feelings towards winter completely. I wear it daily to work and to run errands, and I feel so warm in it (the comment everyone makes when they see me in it: "you look bundled!").

How to be (less) Awkward: You may never know what issues others are facing, and many people struggle with body image distortions. By keeping your own comments about your body positive, you are both reminding and reinforcing to yourself what a beautiful person you are, and serving as a role model to those who may be silently struggling to see their own beauty.
