How to put your life in order

New York, NY, USA

This short story is taken from my self-published dating book... I've decided to add parts of the book to my blog so that you'll get to enjoy reading all my fun stories!

How does one put their life in order? Well you start by making a list of things that you’ve got going on in your life right now. 

The first item on this list is: To have a reliable transportation. I’m in no way bashing you and telling you that you need to go spend all your money on a brand-new car but, I do think that if you don’t have a car/bike/public transportation/Lyft to get you from point A to point B then your future partner might not take you seriously. If you live in New York City or San Diego for example: it makes no sense to spend money on a car when you could either walk to places faster or take a Lyft. One of the most unattractive things in the World is having to pick up your date because they just don’t have a reliable transportation (or they got arrested for a DUI and got their license revoked). More on this story later!

Do you have a dream Job? I remember when I was a little girl I used to dream about being a veterinarian (I eventually found out that I would have to take care of all animals and not just cuddly ones and my opinions changed quickly). You see, I have ophidiophobia and you should totally look that up because I can’t even type the actual word. When it comes to figuring out your career I want you think of something that makes you happy. I want you to be happy to wake up each day and go to work. If that means going to college full time and getting that degree you have always dreamt of then do it! It is never too late! No matter what people tell you. If you must get a job in the mean time that is just “okay” make sure to do anything in your power to show up and get work done. I know I keep going back to things that a partner might find “attractive” but I must because you need to understand that looks do fade. Having an education doesn’t! Say it with me: COLLEGE DEGREE=SEXY!

Now I saved the best for last because I find this extremely important:

“Schedule me time” and I mean it! I think that girls are usually a little better at doing this but guys, not so much... I want you to take at least 15-30 minutes of your day to do something for yourself. You can choose whatever you would like during this time whether it be “mani-pedis, a massage, read a book, watch your favorite show, eat a dessert, go to best-buy, go on a hike, go to the gym” honestly the list could go on and on.

There is something about taking the time to re-group and reconnect with yourself. Unplug from your social media if you can too!

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how precious the time is you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” 

What do you think? Are you ready to put your life in order?
