Do Not Let Your Friends or Family Influence You Based on What They Would Do.
iiiiii repeat…Do Not Let Your Friends or Family Influence You Based on What They Would Do. We’ve all had life experiences making us who we are today. However, our experiences are just that…ours. Lessons learned, ours. Lessons to be learned, ours. Heartbreak, ours. Progress, ours. Happiness, ours. As much as we love our friends and family, repeat after me…they. Aren’t. Us. Just as no two fingerprints are the same, I believe our hearts and minds are not replicas of anyone else’s. We all have our own styles and relationship DNA. We are all different and get to choose our direction. The key is to stay open-minded and positive. Know who you are and know what values and commonalities you are looking for in someone else. You may be completely swept off your feet by someone you never expected or someone your friends never expected for you. Once your heart has surprisingly connected with someone else, that’s when the magic happens. Go for it!
A good guide…remember, Imperfection is Intriguing and Sexy! Both Yours and Your Significant Other’s. #OwnIt!
Identifying and embracing your imperfections is the superpower behind self-confidence. It will also allow you to be more open-minded in meeting and learning about other people. Erase self-doubt and judgement by acknowledging and telling your story. We all have experiences, triumphs, and defeats. How we learn to incorporate these experiences into our life, speaks volumes on our personal growth. It will show up in the quality of the friends we choose, perhaps career paths, and definitely in our romantic relationships. Embrace your flaws and own who you are. Screen shot those memes of inspirational quotes and be the most loving version of you you can be and hang out with people who are similar with the vibe. Be proud of every step you take toward self-improvement. No matter how small you believe your step(s) are, remember, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
There is nothing sexier than someone who recognizes their imperfections, owns them, and continuously works toward improvement. #WorkItBeautiful!!
