The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Don’t Chase THINGS – Chase DREAMS!
Quote of the Day:
“Don’t chase someone who isn’t gonna be standing at the finish line waiting for you.” ~Unknown
The Single Woman Says:
One of the BEST things you can give up in 2012 is the need to chase.
I don’t mean just chasing men. I mean chasing ANYTHING that is running from you…whether it’s friends, or failed opportunities, or fruitless efforts. STOP. There is power in stopping, standing still, and surrendering the chase. It’s the BEST way to see who and what REALLY wants to be there. I’ve realized over the past few weeks that people who I thought were close friends, even best friends of mine, don’t view me in the same light. They don’t hold me in the same category of “friendship” as I do them. To me, they were people that I would call when something important happened. I would want to spend the BIG moments with them. I would have placed them on my “top friends” list if I still had a Myspace page. But then I realized one day recently that I’m not even sure I’m on their friends list at all. So you know what? I’m stopping the chase. Why? Because I am worthy of friends who call me, and invite me places, and meet me halfway. And guess what? So are you!
Bottom line: You will NEVER have to chase something or someone that TRULY wants to be in your life. It’s exhausting to chase people. It’s exhilarating to stop. This new year, stop chasing things and start chasing DREAMS! The right people will be running TOWARD you…not AWAY from you. Resolve this minute to stop chasing the wrong things and give the RIGHT things a chance to catch up to you! It will be one of the best decisions you ever make.
