I want something that’s dependable enough that I can take care of my needs without having to jump from guy to guy or pick some guy up at a bar or club.Yes, I understand that this isn’t what women say they typically want, but I just got out of a long, difficult relationship and I don’t want to dive right back into commitment again. If your goal is to wow others, you might get a few people who really dig the decisions you make, but most people probably don’t have the same style you do. Even browsing shelter magazines where the rooms are so carefully and thoughtfully put together, I find there are rooms that are “my taste” and others that are “perfect but too stuffy.” You lose control when you decorate for people who don’t live with you, you steal the joy of the process, and you’ll never ever reach your goal.2. If you find yourself frustrated by a “rule” and it’s taking the joy out of the process, Here’s a lesson I’ve learned the hard way a few too many times: the best, lasting decisions are made when you’ve taken your time. When we’re all long gone, it won’t matter if we created the most beautiful spaces. We’ll talk guidelines and use that word interchangeably with “rules,” but these rules will be there to serve you, not the other way around. First: no room is ever “finished,” even if it’s “good enough for now.” Your needs will change, your tastes will change, and you’re always free to move things around just to try, even if you end up not liking the change. Decorating should be fun and it , not the way people matter.
They should challenge each other to grow so that their attributes strengthen and they become the best versions of themselves.When a relationship crushes you and leaves you feeling paranoid, anxious, insecure, inadequate, and always on edge, just waiting for the other shoe to drop….you’re cheating yourself out of having the immense benefits a good relationship can provide.Nor is it final or comprehensive — I’m still progressing, still figuring out how I want to eat and what I want to be my “policies” as they relate to food.But I do hope this list achieves one result: opens a few eyes to the fact that vegan doesn’t have to mean militant and inflexible.
