If you're dreading the holiday season, there are a few things that you can do to make them a little easier.
Feeling good can do wonders for your self esteem. Buy yourself a new outfit that makes YOU feel good when you wear it.
Get a new hairdo and/or a manicure right before the party date. The natural high from getting something done and looking good will help your party spirit. Just don't go overboard.
Remember, you only live once and life is what you make of it, even at times it may be hard to keep a smile on your face.
