Eight Ways to Brighten Your Day!

1. Talk to strangers!

But remember, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all!

If you just can’t find a common ground to talk about, compliment her! There is every chance a simple compliment…”I love your shoes!!” OMG!! It’s that easy. It will make her day….and yours!

2. Don’t let yourself Go!

Remember, TODAY IS A GOOD DAY FOR A GOOD DAY!

You decide when you get up in the morning what kind of day it will be! The first decision you make is the biggest decision you will make all day!
What will I wear today? Go out of your way to make sure that the things you have in your closet fit….and when you wear them….you ROCK! When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good you make smart decisions. When you feel good, you are nice to be around, and those people who are around you feel better too! Think about it!

3. Don’t forget your Lipstick!

Everyone….every smile…..looks more beautiful with LIPSTICK! Make it a point to update your go-to color each season!

4. Seek beauty…..look for it around you! Even the strangest places!

The cardinal at the back door….in the early spring! The beautiful batch of bluebells in the back yard! Wow! They are BEAUTIFUL!

5. A beautiful, flirty dress!

Something new….something kind of unexpected. Something that make you smile when you look at yourself! Then, remember, WEAR IT!

6. Dress well to please yourself! Not Him!

When you dress well you indicate to the world around you that you are worth it! That you treat yourself well. That you treat those around you well. That you know what you are talking about. And there is every chance that the people around you will listen to you … and better yet … they will believe that you know what you are talking about!

7. Accessories are Necessities!

Or, TO EXERCISE IS GREAT! BUT TO ACCESSORIZE IS EVEN BETTER!

A beautiful statement necklace and earrings makes a black shirt and pant look STUNNING! Think to yourself…..Wait…..you mean it is this easy to look this great!? And the short answer is YES!!

8. Appreciate your friendships & seek to make more!!!

If you are nice to people, they will be nice back to you. And soon you will have plenty to talk about…and a new friend to boot!! All of us want to have friends! We are the lucky ones if we can surround ourselves with people a little younger than we are….and a little older than we are…..and, even some that are our same age!!

SO REMEMBER…..TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! DRESS WELL! AND…..

Wear it in good health….and wear it Often!
