Hello bombshell. Hello Thursday. This, is the first Thursday of the rest of your life. Yes, you; yes, today. Last Thursday is history, next Thursday is a mystery, and this particular Thursday is the gifted present of your wildest dreams come to life. How do we know this? Because we know you, you are stronger and more powerful than any of the obstacles in your midst.
Yes, the world in your palm is an accessory a touch more intimidating than the Louboutins stashed away in your closet, but intimidation works both ways – they can’t scare you if you scare them first. Be fierce, be fresh, be a force with which to be reckoned – but first, beLIEVE that you can. It all starts with perspective: believe it to see it – look good, feel good, be good, live well.
The simplest way to start the day in a stellar state of mind is to do the very thing most of us dread (especially in the wee morning hours, after a few swipes of the snooze on our smartphones): look yourself in the mirror.
Honor the reflection, define the projection – who will you be today? What beauty mark will you leave on the world between and beyond the hours of 9 and 5? However big or small the impact, wow the world today.
Take your wardrobe on a throwback stroll down vintage lane or fall into a bold new look, and walk with a stride that can’t be denied. Look a stranger in the eyes, say hello, and mean it. Start a conversation with a fascinating someone, revisit a rousing dialogue you left hanging. Write a book, start a business. Dance, sing. Teach someone older than you, learn something new.
Everyday is a reason to shine, today and everyday let your aura be extraordinary – but first: believe it to see it, and make that belief a beautiful reality.
