Our 3rd Valentines day together :)

While browsing through my bookmarked blogs, I came upon a great list of things I wanted to share.

From her list of things every girl should consider:

28. Adapt.

Sounds easy, but it’s something that takes years to master.

Be able to adapt to whatever situation you’re in. If you’re in an uncomfortable situation, you can either shrink back and shut down, or you can adapt. Always adapt. Things cannot always go your way, so never expect them to.

27. Always look polished. Be put together, no matter what you’re doing. Do not wear sweatpants outside the house. This includes Juicy Couture. Which you shouldn’t wear in the first place.

25. Have an opinion. About everything. Positive, negative, just have one! ”I don’t know” tells people nothing. A person with no opinion is a person who commands no respect.

12. (That said -) Don't be afraid to be by yourself. Learning to be independent is a lesson you’ll use throughout life.
It’s great to have someone to share your life with, but never be with someone because you need someone to be with. Be with them because they make your already fantastic life even better.

with that said, amen sister :)

what continues to make my day :)

I've been asking my boyfriend to make choreo or dance to Tae Yang's Wedding Dress video. & well, he finally did. This was his client's "wedding video" that he told me he had to go meet with almost all last week, but really it was just to make this video for me :)

I love him and I hope you all enjoyed your day as well :)

life is not a problem to be solved...

it is a mystery to be lived.

in honor of valentine's day:

"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story we're told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.
