With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it really gets me thinking about not only love but settling. You see, I am in a business of "love." I am the person you go to when you need an engagement ring, wedding band, anniversary gift, push present, birthday present, Christmas present..... you get the picture. In my job, I am surrounded by love. On the other side of that, I am also surrounded by deceit. Unfortunately there are those individuals who come in buying items for let's just say the "other women" in their lives.
Which makes me want to discuss the topic of settling.
Settling happens in our day to day lives in relationships and various obligations.
Whether you are single, dating, or married. Sometimes it’s easier to just “settle.” Maybe you’ve been waiting for
that special someone for as long as you can remember, but no one seems to be "the one." But you enjoy spending time with them or quite frankly just don't want to be alone.
"Never make someone a priority if they only consider you an option"
Maybe you've been looking for your dream job, but all you can find is someone to hire you and you take it- even if this means you are not happy in your current career choice.
For awhile it might be okay to just get by doing the things you do not truly love.
Do you ever find yourself settling for less because you don't want to make other people unhappy?
I have been there
We tend to make people's feelings priorities in our lives.
We get in a routine.
Whether you want someone to spend time with, someone for support or even that little bit of money you are getting from that dead end boring job you have. In the long run, it is better to aim high and wait for that person that is "right" for you or that job that makes you happy. Even if you think it will never happen to you, I do believe in the phrase "good things come to those who wait."
How do you expect to be able to find what you want in life unless you are true to your feelings.
Life is bound to fall into place by doing the things you love.
Don't concentrate too much on finding what you're looking for.
We all know that nothing goes as planned and good things come when you least expect it.
Take a step back.
Think about what you are looking for.
Go on that date that you are unsure about.

Don't let opportunities pass you by. What have you got to lose...besides possibly the love of your life or your dream job?
