Do You Have a Bad Attitude?

How’s your attitude? I know that dating can sometimes be overwhelming, exhausting, and frustrating! I went on SO many dates before I met my husband and I totally get it. It can be challenging to put yourself out there and date, especially if you’ve gone through it week after month after year. Dating can take a lot out of you, especially if you have a lot of expectations about how things should go. Are you showing up on dates expecting to be wooed and entertained? Do you compare him to a long list of superficial qualities that your perfect mate should have? If he doesn’t knock your socks off, do you feel like you’ve wasted your time? Have you thought about what it’s like to be on a date with you? Please don’t allow a bad attitude to keep you alone. To learn more about how your attitude affects your relationships, […]

Do You Have Regrets?

When you think about your past, do you feel like you’ve lost something you can never get back? Or that there’s something you’ll never be able to fix? Whatever you’ve done or not done, whatever you’ve lost, you need to remember that nothing is permanent. You can choose to see any loss as a lesson that can benefit you in the future. Sometimes a loss creates an opportunity for something much better to enter your life. John Barrymore once said “A man is not too old until regrets take the place of dreams.” It’s completely up to you to choose to hold onto past regrets or to let them go and focus on your dreams. I urge you to spend zero time on regrets! Use your valuable time and brain power to focus on the life you want to create.  Until your regrets take the place of your dreams, you’re […]

Does He Like You?

Are you interested in a guy but unsure how he feels about you? You think he likes you. He smiles at you, maybe even chats you up or texts you, but never seems to ask you out. Guys are encouraged to go for what they want, so if you have to question whether he wants to date you – he probably doesn’t. I know that may be tough to swallow but I really want you to take this to heart. A man will usually make his interest clear even if he’s shy. Men know when they like you, they don’t get confused about this. Please don’t tell yourself stories about how he’d surely ask you out if only he wasn’t going through a tough time, fresh out of a relationship, busy at work, etc. A man who isn’t asking you out just doesn’t want to. If you’re spending a lot […]

Follow Your Dreams

Have your dreams gotten lost in the shuffle? Are they buried beneath a mile long to-do list? Do you think it’s too late to have the life you really want? I’d like to encourage you to dust off those dreams today and get to work! You can take a step every single day to make them happen. The most important resource we have is time. Every single person on this planet has 24 hours each day. It is up to us to decide how to use them. How about using some of yours to create the life you really want to have? Your dreams aren’t just for you. Other people are watching, whether you realize it or not, and when they see you going for something amazing it will encourage them to go for theirs too. Don’t give up. I promise you, it’ll be worth it. To learn more about how […]

How to Prepare Yourself for the Perfect Relationship

The process of dating can be one of the best personal growth experiences you can participate in. How? You may ask. First of all, not only can the dating process help develop self-awareness, it can also prepare you to be in a relationship by putting yourself out there and meeting new people. That act alone takes courage. Dating also prepares you to be honest with your heart, to find exactly what it is you’re looking for, and to allow each date to teach you what you really want in a relationship. If you’ve been single for a long time, gone on a bad date, or jump into a relationship only to realize that the person you’re dating is just not right for you – rather than beating yourself up, ask yourself what it is that you can learn from the experience. What can you do differently next time? Don’t just […]
