“If you want it, go get it. If you have it, hold onto it”
Those words were said to me last night and I love them. I think it’s my new favorite saying. If you couldn’t already tell, I’m all about taking life by the hands and getting whatever I want. No I’m not some super aggressive girl, but I’m certainly not passive. And neither was my non – date last night, also known as Mr. Powerful.
Mr. Powerful is totally awesome. We took a break from our friendship because of some drama with Mr. Ridiculous. But now Mr. Ridiculous is out of both of our lives. So we’re free to be friends. Finally! Even though he’s totally awesome and my type of guy, we’re just friends. I want a tall, dark, and handsome older man (he’s my age, tall, tan, and blond but still handsome of course) and he wants a tall, skinny blond (I’m petite, curvaceous, and a brunette). So the day we met we realized we were perfect for each other – as friends.
And I’m so glad we are. Mr. Powerful thinks just like me, which is beyond refreshing. Some of my friends think I’m an alien because I’m so different from them. They settle for situations that I’d never be okay with. I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again. If you don’t like your job
, get a new one. If you want a boyfriend and you’re seeing a guy who isn’t capable of a relationship, end it.
Mr. Powerful helped remind me that life is too short to do things that don’t make you happy. It’s easy to get sucked into situations that make you settle. But it’s important to remember that if you want something, make it yours.
