"Live the Life You'd Be Envious of if You Saw Someone Else Living It"

SO I was reading through the October issue of Cosmo (fine literature) when I came across an article by Olivia Munn, and it's pretty good. I'm not sure if I took away from it exactly what she meant, but here's what I got...actually here' my favorite paragraph.

"Live the life you'd be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I'm going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I'm wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they're living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be. If you wish you were the woman who went for that big promotion, learned a second language, dumped that guy who cheated on you, then just be that person. Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it."

She's really not saying to be someone else, someone you're not. I want to be the girl who works hard for her hot ass body. Emphasis on the hot ass. I want to be the girl who never leaves the house looking like a mess. I want to be the girl who works hard and plays hard. But always keeping it classy. But still down to earth. I want to remember that I am not entitled to anything, without working for it. I want to be the girl who can always be there for her friends. I want to be the chill, confident girl I used to be. I want to find satisfaction in being, rather than seeming. And I've never seen a person want to be all of those things as much as I do, so still 100% me.

So what do you all want to be? Make your lives exactly how you wish they were, and now! There's no better time than the present :)
