What You Need To Know About Motives…

Always check your motives. There’s more to life than fame and fortune. If what you’re doing is for self-serving reasons, you are inhibiting your own success. Because here’s the truth: no one gravitates towards a self-serving Susan.

Don’t let Halloween be the only day you find joy

Halloween, the only holiday where being a whore is acceptable. It’s the only holiday where you can be whatever you desire without the fear of being judged. Why though? Why not accept everyone for who they really are?

The guy who dressed as Miley Cyrus was a hit today, but tomorrow as he suits up in his regular ensemble; he probably won’t receive nearly as much praise.

Today, tomorrow and next year be whoever you want to be! Life’s way too short not to be open minded to all colors, all styles, all personalities, and sexual preferences. Don’t let Halloween be the only day you find joy in the differences of the world.

Is 30 really the new 20?

20131031-130442.jpg I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying, 30 is the new 20. This is generally a saying that helps late 20 somethings cope with leaving their “youth and irresponsible” self and growing into their adult, more responsible self. The saying also infers that some how you get another chance at being 20, due to the increasing human life expectancy. Well, it’s time to wake up and smell the cranberry and vodka; 30 isn’t the new 20; it isn’t the new anything; 30 is 30, and that’s that! Clinical psychologist, Meg Jay, suggests 20 somethings should realize that the 20s is “the defining defining of their lives.

The suggestion that 30 is the new 20 gives 20 somethings the false sense that they have another chance to get “it” right. Unfortunately, this is certainly not the case. Other than the fact we’re not promised tomorrow, consider a few things. In our 20s, we’re still learning life, learning who we are, and still accepting of new things. As we get older, we become less and less tolerable of certain things, because we learned a lot of about our lives and what we will and will not tolerate. Also, once we turn 30, “the clock” seems to tick even faster and it starts to seem as if there isn’t enough time in the day to do everything we need to accomplish.

As we grow into our 30s, the realization of our life’s purpose, retirement, career, and more responsibility hits us in the face. We find ourselves raceing towards the finish line, attempting to accomplish things we should have accomplished in our 20s. While in our 20s, we have 10 years to make mistakes, figure out which direction to go, fall in love, etc. Don’t waste away your 20s thinking that 30 is the new 20; therefore you have more time. Live your life with a purpose…this ain’t no dress rehearsal. Give it all you got, right now!! Don’t wait until you’re 30, thinking you have more time. Remember that time waits for no one.

Life is too short not to live klassily so make sure you stop by.

Dating is Like Soul Searching

20131029-223808.jpg

It’s like searching for that one specific star in the night sky that appears to be different from the others. It’s like solving the toughest math problem hoping for the right answer.

Before even attempting to pursue someone you really have to be in love with yourself. Dating is like soul searching. Be confident in you! Because without that sense of self worth, you’re basically setting yourself up for failure. You’re setting yourself up to run into a dead end, head on collision, near death experience.

Be smart. Be faithful and don’t be so afraid to love. Remember, dating doesn’t always have to be the infamous “Hell Date” experience. Be you! Be positive! Be true!
