Happy Thanksgivings

I am so thankful for my family for being there every step of the way, my friends for sticking with me-despite me being, well, me, and my choir for presenting me with opportunities daily.

My Rules to Fabulousity

1. Look your best!
Let's face it- as children, we loved dressing up, and for most girls, we still do. Often at school I get asked how can I dress so nicely or why do I dress up for school? And after thinking about it for sometime, I realized, that looking nice and feeling confident come hand in hand. And the sad truth is, people who don't know you will judge you by the way you look. Why give them the opportunity to bring you down?!

P.S.! You don't need the most expensive clothes to look nice (yay for thrift store finds!) and fashion does not mean you have to give up comfort.

2. Don't Degrade Yourself.
What is it about women that makes us so subject to objectification? Women are not only using raunchiness for our advantage but we are beginning to buy into the fact it is okay. Perhaps this is the reason American is number one in teen pregnancies? Then the good men in the world feel like they have to apologize for every stupid man that degraded women for the soul reason for being man, when they shouldn't. Be courageous to yourself. Don't do something you wouldn't want your best friend or sibling to do.

3. Be Curious!
Curiosity killed the cat? Thank goodness it has 9 lives. If a random question randomly pops in your head, like "How does a sewing machine work?" Look it up! The world is filled with little marvelous things and you can learn something new every day. And if you can't look it up right then, write it down for later.

4. Just Because You're Weird, Doesn't Mean You Should Stop.
Be yourself. I will repeat 5 more times. Be yourself, be yourself, be yourself, be yourself, be yourself! If you like to wear pink and head bang to heavy metal music, go ahead! You don't have to be a stereotype, just be yourself. Don't limit yourself by categories, labels, etc. Wear what YOU like. Listen to what YOU like. And most importantly, do what YOU want to do.

5. Push Your Limits!
Life is about mistakes, and by making mistake, you learn about yourself and who you are. Do something you'd never do before. Get a piercing, go to a concert you would never go to before, drink coffee if you have never had it-you get the idea. Don't stress yourself, don't stress your life. Enjoy the small things in life and the big things even more.

6. Its better to be over, than under.
This is true for most things, but what I specifically mean by this is confidence. Stop looking in the mirror and criticizing everything! Look at your beauties cause that is what people look at. Stop saying you aren't beautiful, because you are. Don't you ever get tired at being negative?

What are your rules to fabulousity?
