I think I have found a love for writing blogs.

Today I wanted to discuss the power YOU have. That's right. Nobody runs your life but you. I have always been a believer in this so I'll explain why. 

Over the last year I have made a number of choices that have positively affected my life. For example, I made the choice to attend BGSU (Go Falcons) I made the choice to follow "The Fee Good Lifestyle" (Google that) and earlier today I made a choice to join a gym.

Life is all about the choices we make. Personally I don't believe in "fate" or "destiny." I saw we control our lives. Now of course that's my opinion and some may believe that God (or gods) has a big plan for us but for me, its about the choices I make.

In dating this is so true. We make the choices to date who we want to date. No one chooses for us. Sure we might be set up but in the end its up to us. Not only that but we have to make the choice to go make choices that will lead us to where we want to go. We can all plan in our heads. We can choose to think about where we want to go but we have to make the decision go and do that.

Every morning ask yourself "What can I do today that will make my life (not just dating life) better?"

At noon ask yourself "What have I done today that will make my life better and what can I still do?"

At night ask yourself "How am I better today than yesterday and how will I be better tomorrow" 

Here I'll show you.

This morning: I need to go to work and do a good job for the people I work for. (Did it and learned some new stuff) I also need to run about 4-5 miles and join a gym. (Joined the gym and lacing up as we speak)

At noon: Ok I have done a good job at work and now know who I need to ask for at the gym.

Tonight is unknown because it hasn't happened but positive steps have been taken.

Sometimes this site doesn't have a ton of action but for those who do read my words I hope you can follow and learn like I did from others.

Rise Up and Be Bold
