Life does not wait until you find the perfect mate. Your life is happening right now, this very minute. Stop missing out on all the things that you want to try, things you want to experience. Deciding to wait to do certain things until you meet some mystery love connection is a risk. What if you never meet this dream person? Or what if it will be 10 years before you really meet your soul mate?

There is an old saying that tomorrow is not promised. Sometimes we have a tendency to believe that we have forever to get it right, to live our lives. The reality is that you just never know what will happen from one moment to the next. If your life ended right this moment; can you honestly say you have made the most of it?

Life begins when you decide it begins, when you decide to embrace it and go after any and everything that moves you. All of those experiences will help you learn more about who you are and what makes you tick. The more you know about yourself only helps you even more when you do meet that potential mate. How can you expect this wonderful person that you are waiting to meet, who has all these amazing qualities to be impressed by you? Someone that does not embrace their own life that does not know who they really are?

Starting today take a moment to start writing a list; a list of all the things you want to try, things you want to experience. From the small challenges to the extravagant. Then start putting in the effort to cross those things off one at a time. Give life 110% so that no matter what; you can say you gave it your all and never let life short change you. When you do meet that special someone, they will be able to join in on some of those experiences perhaps. You deserve to have a life of your own, in or out of a relationship.

As women we sometimes have a bad habit of putting ourselves on the auction block. Trying with everything in us to convince a man we are good enough, worthy of their love.

In the beginning this is a normal part of give and take; both parties trying to show all the attributes they bring to the table. But some of us take it too far. Some women never seem to turn it off; constantly trying to convince someone that they are good enough to be their girlfriend or wife. The question is why?

Instead of constantly trying to sell yourself; live your life. Let that man see you as you are; amazing, exceptional and unique. He should be pursuing you; trying to convince you he is good enough for you, not the other way around. Stop selling yourself short, women were created from man and should be loved, honored and cherished as such, not made to feel like an object on the auction block; know your worth.
