What's Your Promise? #FaceForward

We're digging Clinique's new #FaceForward initiative asking: What advice would you give to your future self? It's a great question. We think about what we wish we knew then, and I love that Clinique is reminding us to not dwell on the past but to look ahead to the future. 

When it comes to beauty, one promise I know I'll always make to myself is to protect my skin with SPF. 

As a #GirlBoss, I would tell my future self to always take risks. I'm someone who would rather take a risk than live with regret, and because of this, I've been able to do what I love for my work. 

Now that I'm a mom, there are a million promises I'd like to make for the future. Life gets busy and patience gets shorter and shorter, but I do want to promise myself not to rush the little moments that actually afford some of the biggest memories. Like our nightly bedtime ritual of reading books, telling a story, singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," turning the closet light on, turning the sound machine on, sitting in the bedside chair as Rex closes his eyes....    

What promise would you make to the future?
