Lauren Conrad is possibly the only celebrity who has influenced me beyond anyone else.
I have followed her since her days on Laguna Beach, and through her time on The Hills.
Today I thought I would share some wise words from the fabulous lady.
“The following qualities are ones that we should think about each morning as we get ready for the day because just as important as the products we apply and the clothing we select are the characteristics we carry with us.
First, kindness. Be kind to others. It is such a simple concept. Such a simple principle, yet not always lived out. We can work to be kind in the small things, in knowing we have the power to change a person’s entire day, just by a small compliment, an act of kindness or even a smile.
Second, patience. A patient person takes the time to understand others. It’s important to work toward treating others as we would want to be treated.
Third, compassion. It is not just about having empathy for someone, but also trying to help him or her. It’s trying to understand someone before judging.
Fourth, grace. Think Audrey Hepburn. To have grace is to carry ourselves with allure and poise. To treat others with respect and be aware of their feelings.
Fifth, loyalty. A loyal person isn’t just present while things are going well, but also when things are difficult. They are dependable and there when it counts.”
