Be (B)eautiful: Sometimes we need that little reminder of just how much we rock! Be (A)uthentic: This is the effin’ TRUTH; stop controlling, judging and seeking approval: “If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.” ~Deepak Chopra Be (D)etermined: Make a little extra effort every day. This could mean waking up 10 minutes earlier to style your hair in the am, listening to your iPod and just zoning out, walking instead of taking the train to get some exercise in, or wearing colorful fun underwear to brighten up a gloomy day. Make it a point to always do something for yourself EACH and EVERY day. It doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal, but it should make you feel good.
