15 Things I’ve Learned (and Relearned) Recently, and a Tuesday FOTD with Chanel and Laura Mercier

    1. Learn new communication skills. It’s always a good thing.
    2. You don’t have to respond right away. It’s fine to pause and take a few deep breaths while you think about your next step.
    3. As much as you want and wish for other people in your life to change, if they’re not ready or if they’re unwilling, then you have to let it go.
    4. Speaking of changes, personal change doesn’t always have to always be big, sweeping and dramatic. It can mean small tweaks along the way. Any progress is forward progress.
    5. It’s OK if your interests evolve. You’re growing, so what you find interesting will evolve, too.
    6. Fashion-related item: A puffed shoulder is cute, but sometimes, if the puff is even just a touch too puffy, it can veer into pirate territory.

  1. You don’t have to have all the answers.
  2. Even though it might feel like it was your fault, chances are it wasn’t, and you had no real control in how things played out.
  3. A poker face comes in REALLY handy at work.
  4. Side note to my inner child: You don’t have to do it all by yourself. You can and should ask for help from others.
  5. If you’re feeling stuck, flip the script in some way. Try something different. It might just spark something.
  6. If things are pretty good, then cherish those times. Each season is so fleeting, and there will be a time when you look back at that time with awe and wonder.
  7. Even though I always feel like I have so much to learn about writing, sharing what I know about it with other people is fun.
  8. Lists are also fun! Oh, and they don’t have to be too complicated or wordy.
  9. It’s a good thing to sit down and write a list about things you’ve learned recently. It’s surprisingly eye opening.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
