Just a few things my mother has taught me:
- be laughing.
- tell the truth if you don’t like an outfit your mom picks out for you. It won’t hurt her feelings, it helps her hone in on what you do like.
- indulge your sweet tooth and your guilty pleasure tunes. (I still eat a LOT of Thin Mints and blare my Melissa Etheridge as loud as my mom when no one is home!)
- it’s not about you.
- eat dessert first.
- wallow for more than a day. Dust yourself off and drag your body back into a positive mindset.
- get overly-complicated or speak ill of people that serve you food. Until you have finished your meal.
and…Always, always, always: Moisturize your neck!
