How to be Smarter: "When life sucks you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface, and breathe again." Such a powerful quote from Sheryl Sandberg's recent commencement speech. How to be Prettier: My new blue ruffled shower curtain makes me happy every single time I see it.

How to be (less) Awkward: When you arrive at the front of a room to give a presentation, take about 3 seconds to have a breath and look at over the audience. Not rushing into speaking projects confidence and gives you time to catch your breath and center yourself before beginning.
