    "You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, unapologetically, to say “no” to other things."

    Elevate Your Surroundings

    The people that surround you is a precise indication of the type of person you are and have allowed yourself to be. It’s not to say that you are an exact replica of your group of friends, however, the people that you allow in your inner circle is a large benefactor on how you portray yourself to the outside world. According to motivational speaker Jim Rohn, we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. As indicated in the Business Insider“This relates to the law of averages, which is the theory that the result of any given situation will be the average of all outcomes.” So if your five average people are negative, it’s time to take a step back and reassess your associations. Now I’m not trying to promote spring cleaning your friendships, but instead provide insight on who and how you allow the people around you to affect your life because it can greatly determine your attitude.

    "I Was A Fool"

    Do you remember I searched you out
    How I climbed your city’s walls?
    Do you remember me as devout
    How I prayed for your calls?

    I stood still is what I did
    Love like ours is never fixed

    I stuck around
    I did behave
    I saved you every time
    I was a fool for love
    I was a fool for love
    I was a fool [x2]

    Then you blamed me and blocked me out
    How long did you think I’d last?
    Then you disappeared for weeks to pout
    How many times could I pack?

    But stand still is all I did
    Love like ours is never fixed

    Still I stuck around
    I did behave
    I saved you every time
    I was a fool for love
    I was a fool for love
    I was a fool [x2]

    If you’re worried that I might’ve changed
    Left behind all of my foolish ways
    You best be looking for somebody else
    Without a foolish heart, a foolish heart

    But stand still is all we did
    Love like ours is never fixed

    I stuck around
    I did behave
    I saved you every time
    I was a fool for love
    I was a fool for love
    I was a fool [x5]

    Life is beautiful because it isn’t eternal; it has an ending. We often think that perfection is everlasting, but that isn’t true. Perfection is objective and that which has no end we see of little value.

    Throughout our lives, we will lose many friends and family members. We will see people brought into this world, and we will see people — maybe even those same people — leave it. Losing someone close to you is very difficult to cope with, but it does help you understand how valuable, fragile and beautiful this life is.

    Losing a loved one gives you a newfound appreciation for existence itself.

    A Quote from “Lean In”

    "When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitments phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated, and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist, and trust me, over time, nothing is sexier".
