Just a Thought...

Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and The City is one of my all time favorite characters.... The show makes me think so much.... and it's funny!

Here's one of Carrie's quotes that I love...

Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous.

Within a couple of days of watching this rerun, I found this pin.

Ok... being happy with yourself is just a no brainer. How can you expect anyone to love you and for you to know what you want out of life and who you want to marry/spend your life with until you are happy with who you are, where you're at and where you're going. Needing to find the love of someone else to make you happy is not how it works. I think our society has this conception turned around. We seemed to be trained from childhood that we should find a mate in love to make us happy. Insecurity is an ugly thing.

Now... the other part of Carrie's quote is about relationships....
Ever thought of who you surround yourself with in life?

open you up to something new and exotic
 those that are old and familiar
 those that bring up lots of questions
 those that bring you somewhere unexpected
 those that bring you far from where you started
 and those that bring you back

Think of who you're spending time with.... Oprah Winfry once said:
Surround yourself with only people who lift you higher.

Just a thought....  how can you expect positive things in your life when you surround yourself with negativity?

Until Next Time..
