Tip, Tip, HOORAY!!
It’s that time of the week again when I open up my Treasure of Tips and pour out wisdom to my 10s of readers. (Cyber-High Five to my fans!)
Ladies – you want a skin tip??? Today’s is short and sweet: Get those eyebrows out of your hairline! “What is she talking about?” you ask. I’m talking about our attitudes. Too often, we allow our situations to take over our faces, causing us to scowl, squint and stretch our eyebrows to the heavens. But all that reaction does is contort your face and cause wrinkles. That situation, be it a silly boy, a micro-managing boss, a pushy friend, a sassy sister, a misbehaving pet, whatever it is – it will pass! I promise you! But what will last are those wrinkles that you caused with your attitude.
One of my older sisters once said to me, “learn to respond, not react, to situations.” (Clearly, wisdom runs in my family. Ha!) That simple rule of thumb will not only save relationships and your reputation, but it will also help you fight the signs of aging. Now, I’m not saying to go through life expressionless, but raising your eyebrows every time someone ticks you off is just not becoming. Take a page from The Chive and “Keep Calm and _______.” Save your lines for the good times, the laughs, the sweet moments when your significant surprises you with a romantic surcee, nights out with your girls, etc.
