I had already made a decision early on that I would be a plain girl with tons of personality, and accepting it made everything a lot easier. If you are lucky, there is a moment in your life when you have some say as to what your currency is going to be. I decided early on it was not going to be my looks ... Decide what your currency is early. Let go of what you will never have. People who do this are happier and sexier.
