“Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on I’ll be mad.”
Do you have a list of qualities you’re looking for in another person?
Sometimes that can be a great thing…other times it’s terrible.
You may find that you have a truly great connection with someone, and they don’t meet the requirements of your list.
Or you could find the opposite…hitting the list, but not really connecting where it counts.
The truth is, chemistry and commitment are non-negotiable, while pretty much everything else is.
Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone…push the envelope.
“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”
When you’re single and lonely, it’s easy to look at other people’s relationships and feel envious.
After all, they seemingly have what you want.
But you don’t really know if they do, do you? How can you know if they actually have something healthy?
Most of the time you’re only getting a snapshot of what’s going on. You don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors.
Envy can also enforce an idea that you need to have a certain type of relationship- which can change your ability to correctly judge whether or not it’s good for you.
“Try something different. Surrender.”
To a certain extent, being judgmental can be good and bad.
You want to judge whether or not something is good for you, but not to the point that you’re preventing yourself from experiencing something amazing.
For instance, a person can go through many phases in their life, and have a past that’s not exactly attractive to you.
However, they may have completely changed in a way that suits your lifestyle.
If that change is seemingly real, it’s a good idea to take them at their word and see how things work between you two.
Just recognize everyone is on their own path, and surrender to the experience.
“Reason is powerless in the expression of Love.”
There’s a saying:
‘The more plans you make, the more god laughs.’
Basically this is saying that there’s no way to know what fate will bring; your life plans may change completely.
For instance, you may want to have a house, car, two kids, a spouse, and a well paying job by the time you’re 30, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be happy.
Love can come at any age…what matters is how you feel.
“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”
Have you ever noticed when you don’t want something it almost immediately appears before you?
Same thing here.
Work on yourself and become whole.
Create a life you want to live, and you’ll build up a magnetism that will attract the right partner!
