“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways” — Stephen Vincent Benet

How to be Smarter: Sometimes we become so afraid of trying something new, we tell ourselves trying something small that is new will build up our confidence to try something big.  But I really believe that it is the act of making that one big change that can give you the courage to not only conquer that task, but conquer your entire “scary list.” Instead of giving yourself bangs and hoping it will give you the confidence to change jobs, change your job and then cut your bangs for the first day of work.

How to be Prettier: Candy-cane stripes: for work and for play.

How to be (less) Awkward: Sometimes when we see people we know very well, we forget to give them a proper greeting, and instead greet them with “did you bring the package I asked you to?” or “why are you wearing that coat?” But everyone, from siblings to boyfriends (maybe especially siblings and boyfriends), deserve a proper greeting before a snappy comment is said.

  1. candy cane stripes! so holiday-esque. happy holidays, molly!

  2. Proper greetings for people you see so often is such a good thing to remind people of. So often I don’t even say ‘Hello,’ to my roommate, and I really should.

  3. I like the less awkward!

  4. I love greeting everyone with either a hug or a fist bump!

  5. I so agree with the less awkward…nice greetings take an extra thought and requires one to think about someone else instead of myself…I need xxx instead of How are you today? How was your weekend?

    Very good reminder!

  6. I loved the less awkward. Especially struck home since my little sister called me today and I answered the phone with “what do you want?”. It probably would’ve set the tone for a better conversation had I answered it with a “hi, how are you doing today?”!
