In my relationships I’m saying “no” to red flags. But, like, really this time! Yes, I’ll continue to listen with an open mind and trust with an open heart. But, from now on, I’ll for damn sure observe someone’s actions for their truth and trust my intuition. Someone’s “potential” ain’t enough for me anymore. I’m keeping a close eye on character, habits, behaviors and lifestyle. What they value. How they treat people. How they manage conflict or handle stress.
In 2022 I’m gonna fall in love. Das da bucket list, baby! Yep, I’ma throw that out into the Universe but also clarify – ‘cause y’gotta do that with the Universe sometimes. I will not “settle” into love. Nor will I “fall” in the dizzying sense that obscures all the red flags. Those are life lessons I’ve failed and repeated too many times. I’ve finally graduated from messy, toxic love and situationships. And please rest assured, I’ve done lots of self-reflection, personal growth sh*t and deem myself a constant work in progress toward the best version of myself. Nevertheless, I love the here and now version of myself! So #sheready! I’m ready for that grown and sexy kinda love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
