How to be Smarter: People always wonder that if they make a change and they hate it, they will always want to go back to the way things were. But to go to the other extreme, what if you make a change and you love it so much you never want it to end? If you're going to worry about hating a change, try to also balance that view with the thought that you could love the change a million times more than you might hate it. How to be Prettier: On Wednesday, I wore an outfit I really liked so I thought I'd share: I layered a bright yellow cap-sleeve tee shirt (mine said Jamaica down the side, but no one saw that....) under a tan shift dress (mine was also Ann Taylor; this is almost an exact match). It was muted enough for work, but still really bright and I loved wearing the burst of yellow. Take your own sleeveless work dress, layer a bright cap-sleeve tee shirt under, and you're good to go (if your dress is v-neck, it helps to make your tee shirt v-neck as well to to avoid the tee-shirt bunching up by your collar).
How to be (less) Awkward: Focus on being a whole version of yourself rather than a fraction of someone else.
