I have loved InStyle Magazine for years. I like to look at all the pretty pictures, especially the spreads of gorgeous celebrity homes. Dare to dream. I’ll admit though that I don’t really pay attention to the articles. But in June’s issue I read a portion of an interview they did with Salma Hayek. I loved what she said about “The Nine Things She Would Tell Her Younger Self.” This is a fabulous list – simple but a few smart words to live by.
Don’t worry too much or be discouraged by other people’s opinions.
Create some good habits, such as the way you eat and exercise.
Don’t waste time trying to impress the fools.
Avoid drama and don’t spend your time talking about it or giving in to it.
Count your blessings every day.
Spend every second you can with your grandparents, and write down what they tell you. Film them if you can.
Keep a diary. I wish I had written down all the beautiful things men have told me…and they meant it.
