Be the best you you can be — for yourself!

If you’ve ever had revenge fantasies where you run into your ex looking utterly fabulous, thus making him regret ever losing you, you aren’t alone. Looking good really IS the best revenge! But do it for YOU…not for him. He doesn’t deserve that level of commitment when he couldn’t do the same for you.

Seriously, I’m a fan of looking your very best after a bad breakup. Some of us turn to food and comfort eating post-split, becoming the very image of a modern-day Bridget Jones with endless bottles of cheap champagne and pints of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey littering our kitchen tables. Others hit the gym, hair salon or Sephora counters with a vengeance, intent on making him see just how perfect a woman he lost. Choose the latter…PLEASE. I’m begging you.

Sure, maybe you’re changing your lifestyle and hitting the gym or looking like the best version of you for the wrong reasons, but who cares what your catalyst is as long as you have something that makes you feel good about yourself? If you look in the mirror and like what you see, that’s a great thing! An added bonus here — feeling good will give you confidence, which will come across in your relations with other men, and you’ll be snapped up by someone worthy before you know it!

If you have to indulge in straight-from-the-package cookie dough for a week or so, do it! But after a week, stop wallowing and start doing something to make you feel happy again. You know what they say — look good and FEEL good. And remember, with endorphins come pheromones — so you’ll be feeling like a sexy beast again in no time!
