As I get older, I have learned to be present. When I choose something in life, be it a relationship, a vacation, or even a restaurant, I have learned to be present.
It is important to really appreciate and take the time to be in the moment. I try not to focus too much on the past or the future, but really be mindful of the present. Time is fleeting, tomorrow is not promised, and we are gifted with the present. The good old days are today! Cue Macklemore. #AmazingSong
I’ve also learned to listen to my instincts, take personal responsibility, embrace that I am EXACTLY where I am supposed to be at all times, and to appreciate all the lessons I’ve learned along the way. In order to sustain peace in your life, it’s mandatory to only allow positive and supportive people into your inner circle. Easier said than done, yet mandatory. Life looks different for everyone, so you need to stick to what makes you feel the most comfortable! It’s important to remember you can always edit and change the course. We’re always evolving.
In love, I’ve learned that at a certain point, we must look internally, and take responsibility for the decisions we’ve made. It is then that we can truly appreciate how far we’ve come. Laugh at our mistakes, find the good that came from them, and never stop learning. Experience has been my biggest teacher. I’ve gained wisdom by overcoming setbacks, and have learned to persist with determination and appreciation for all experiences-good and bad. Heartache has taught me to be a better lover. Above all else, taking personal responsibility has given me strength, confidence, self-love, and happiness. It’s the winning combination. The best part about it is that everything I have learned, I can pass on to others, and help support them through their journeys. I have learned to embrace that we are all imperfect beings, and I find that so intriguing!! #OwnIt
“Men like women with ambition, drive, and passion.” – The Couple’s Society
To me, no matter how many transactions I close, closing the deal on love and having that mental and physical intimacy is true success. Men love women with ambition, drive, and passion. Loving your man and being supportive of him creates an incredible bond. Women enjoy the same in men. While I love my career and my friends, my first priority is pouring into my love relationship. I appreciate my man. At times I’ll cook for him, but I always listen to him and see how I can offer support. I love being in my feminine and expressing my desire of nurturing, caring, and lovingly supporting my significant other. I do it because it makes me calm and happy, and in turn, it makes him happy. It’s a win, win!
There is nothing sexier than someone who recognizes their imperfections, owns them, and continuously works toward improvement.
