One of my coworkers sent this to me and we had the biggest laugh! I just had to share it with you.
What a loaded topic right?! I felt like sharing some inspirational quotes that I’ve found recently on Pinterest that all surround love, the possibility of love and never settling until you’ve found the love that you deserve. 
I was talking with two of my girlfriends last night and I asked them if they realized how much of our time, conversations and energy are spent on love & relationships. Not that it’s a negative thing, but because the feeling of love or liking someone can shape your mood and your day to day activity. I know that when I’m feeling “in love” or have met someone new, my days seem brighter and I’m a much happier girl. 
Now, don’t get me wrong finding happiness [alone] is vital, in my opinion, to the game called love. If you cannot love yourself it becomes very hard for someone else to do if for you. You’ll find that you can more easily make exceptions for bad behavior and your decisions may never be your own. These are things I have learned in the past nine months I have been single. Surprisingly, getting unengaged was one of the most empowering decisions I have ever made. I gained confidence in myself, independence, new friends, and the power to decide who and what I want in my life.
I’m not a love guru by any means and I’ve made lots of mistakes along the way, but I do have a few words of wisdom for any girl looking for love. —> Hold yourself in the highest respect (and I don’t mean this in a conceited way). You are beautiful, smart and capable, and if someone else does not see this then maybe they aren’t for you. When you learn your self worth you will stop making excuses for those who do not know what a gem you really are. And if they aren’t right then hold your head high and keep on strutting your stuff! There are plenty of fish in the sea [boys in the club, guys on the beach, athletes on the court]…you get the idea hah.
I’m a true believer that there is someone out there for everyone, even if it takes certain people longer to find their match. You can’t force love and you can’t force feelings. And every relationship and experience you have along the way teaches you valuable lessons and shapes you into the person you are and will be. 
And when you do find love it’s exhilarating. happy. exciting. mind blowing. comforting. tingly. etc.
I hope to find love again soon (and maybe I have…) but that will be a story for another day! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I will be back next week with more beauty and makeup stuff for you.
