Maybe that's what I want??? (Constance Jablonski)

Are you open to creative suprises? (Maryna Linchuk)

Wink at 2012, life is FUN! (Jacquelyn Jablonski)

Are you going to cover things up from yourself to avoid facing reality? (Jessica Clarke)

Are you going to keep secrets from yourself? (Joan Smalls)

Are you brave enough to be silly? (Behati Prinsloo)

Are 2012's challenges going to make you implode and lose sight of who you reallyare? (Adriana Lima)

Will 2012 bring surprises that make you pensive about being yourself (Anja Rubik)

Will you smile, being comfortable in your own skin? (Miranda Kerr)

Will you learn to "heart" yourself so you can learn to "heart" others? (Liu Wen with Anais Mali)

Happy 2012! The world's got loads of changes awaiting this year: a new U.S. presidential term, the Mayan Calendar officially ends (omg, omg I'm sooo afraid), and Facebook will finally go public.

Yet, despite any major external events, our happiness is always internally 100% our choice. It's not your boyfriend's job to make you happy. It's not your girlfriend's job to make you feel good about yourself. It's your job to choose happiness for yourself. My challenge to you guys is to let go of trying to control what others think of you in order to make space for you to be who you really are.
