1. You ascribe intent.

Another driver cut you off. Your friend never texted you back. Your co-worker went to lunch without you. Everyone can find a reason to be offended on a steady basis. So what caused you to be offended? You assigned bad intent to these otherwise innocuous actions. You took it as a personal affront, a slap in the face.

Happy people do not do this. They don’t take things personally. They don’t ascribe intent to the unintentional actions of others.

2. You’re the star of your own movie.

It is little wonder that you believe the world revolves around you. After all, you have been at the very center of every experience you have ever had.

You are the star of your own movie. You wrote the script. You know how you want it to unfold. You even know how you want it to end.

PREACH: Why going clubbing is not even an option for me anymore…

At the risk of sounding like I’m ready to be sent to a nursing home, clubbing is seriously the absolute worst. The only way to get me to a club these days is if my favorite DJ (HARDWELL of course) is playing, if it’s someone’s birthday (well, that’s actually the only way to get me out of my house, period) OR if I’m out of town. Not a chance to catch me out in Miami anymore… #OverIt

Celebrity Deathmatch: Solange Knowles vs. Jay Z

Celebrity Deathmatch: Solange Knowles vs. Jay Z

Can’t go on a single day without a healthy dose of controversy. It looks like this one comes to us from Solange Knowles (Beyonce’s sister) who decided to try and beat up Jay Z in an elevator after this year’s Met Gala. Obviously, the many brilliant minds of our generation did what they know how to do to cope with any situation: make memes. This one is one of my favorites. Ohhh Solange. What are we going to do with you?

Pin of the day – Marie Antoinette Decorated Cookies

Pin of the day - Marie Antoinette Decorated Cookies

I’m obsessed with Pinterest and the things I find there completely inspire me. Decorated cookies are making the rounds right now, going “viral” in their own way as the new dessert table/favor at parties of all sizes and budgets – regardless of the age group. Therefore, the pin of the day is brought to you by these STUNNING Marie Antoinette decorated cookies that are TO. DIE. FOR!

I have a friend who is starting her business now doing this, and I’ve personally seen the amount of time, precision and patience it takes to make much less elaborate cookies… So I really can’t even fathom how time-consuming it is to make just one of these.

If I saw someone actually eating one of these, I would call 911 and press murder charges. As good old Marie would say… Let them eat cake – but please don’t touch these cookies!

All in all, congratulations to the talented hands at Sugar Rush Custom Cookies behind this gorgeous work of edible art!
