Things I will someday teach my daughter

* Never underestimate how much better a day can be made by listening to Etta James.

* Always wear makeup when going to try on clothes. The dressing room lights will make you look more broken out than you are, and you’ll be so focused on your not-there acne that you won’t be able to appreciate how good you look.

*When eating tofu, try not to look at it. It tastes better than it looks, honest.

*It’s okay to miss someone and simultaneously be glad that they aren’t in your life anymore. You can have completely opposite emotions about any given subject. It’s not cheating.

*If a man doesn’t treat his mother well, he probably won’t treat you well. Nice guys are seriously underrated.

*Sing when you bake. Dance when you clean. Sing and dance whenever possible, even if you don’t think you’re very good, because it will make everything you do a little better and a little brighter.

*You don’t always have to apologize, and you don’t always have to forgive. More often than not, you’ll feel better if you do, but don’t be bullied into backing down when you’re right. There are times to stand your ground. Pick and choose them wisely. Trust your instincts.

    Nice guys? What’s that?
    Just kidding.
    Seriously though, those are all gems of wisdom to pass down.

    Hey this is my first response: Ugh, I hate the dressing room mirror thing. It can be a total self esteem let down. How about we all wear super creepy full face masks into department stores?
