Every once in a while I watch that Millionaire Matchmaker show. Her philosophy is that you need to have your "5 non-negotiables" when selecting a "mate."
These should be the things that you know you want in a partner and won't bend on. Settling only leads to the same dead ends. Agreed!
Someone who was kind and loving, fun & a little goofy.
|Eeek, Not Him!|
Someone who is honest.
I know for sure that compromising on my "non-negotiables" in the past was the reason I ended up in such a bad place. I made poor decisions.
I hope I am able to teach my daughter to learn from my mistakes - whoops, I mean lessons & also learn what it took me a long time to figure out...
Don't try to make things happen, let them happen. (Still working on this one.)
For the longest time I sold myself short.
Stick to your list.
The darnedest things happen when you're not looking.
I know God had His own perfect plan for me & I'm pretty sure He knows way better than I do.
I needed to have all my "lessons" to be where I am now.
I am still working on the "His time, not mine."
I'm a perpetual work in progress.
Live your life with no regrets. Embrace your "lessons" and LEARN FROM THEM! Always remember that you ARE special - and totally worth it!
I could have done things differently, sure - but then I wouldn't be so darn smart now, would I?? :)
Thank you so very much for reading my blog!
