Baby Steps

My philosophy is if you really want to change something, you will. It’s that plain and simple. So if you find yourself constantly complaining about your own life, just remember that you have the power to change it. Perhaps it’s your weight, diet, attitude, career, level of education, relationship status, whatever. If you don’t like it, you can change it. And if you don’t change it, then stop complaining about it because it obviously doesn’t bother you enough to fix it. With that being said, I often think about how

When I finally landed myself in the most awesome relationship ever, I quickly learned our bond did not occur because the stars were finally in alignment, but because we shared some of the same traits as successful couples.

Trust me I’m no expert when it comes to dating and have had my fair share of broken hearts on the battlefield. However, I’m no idiot either and finally learned a few lessons from my mistakes. Since then I have developed my own philosophy of dating that I especially wrote for my ladies, but feel any gender can benefit.
