B.A.D. Girl Tip: Giving Up vs Trying Harder

This is something we  probably have learned the hard way at some point in our life and being the  DETERMINED women that we are it can be difficult for us to just  throw in the towel. We aren’t quitters, because quitters never win right? Well, I strongly believe in NEVER saying never! It is majorly important for us to grow, understand and realize when we need to work harder for something or someone and when it is best for us to gracefully bow out. When To Try Harder: You haven’t actually “failed” yet You haven’t given 120% of your efforts Your heart tells you that you CAN You believe in your idea When To Move On: Your efforts are not being appreciated You are causing more harm than good YOU are not happy When do you think someone should move on or try harder at something? xx Nicole

Be (B)eautiful: I really look forward to my weekly manicure’s. Changing my nail polish color really helps brighten my mood. It’s amazing how looking down at my nails in a cute fun color can really make me feel better.  The new Fall 2010 OPI Swiss collection is my current obsession. The colors are fab. I’m currently typing with Glitzerland on my nails. ❤ it! Be (A)uthentic: When I feel like giving up on something, I talk myself out of it. I am my own motivation and you should be yours.
