Growing up the first movie i watched of Robin Williams was Dead Poets Society. It was a movie my friends and i watched for class, and it struck a chord in all of us. “Carpe Diem — Seize the Day!” was the catchphrase, and such a wonderful ideal it was for someone who was just starting hers.
Most times, they say it’s the trip not the destination.
But what good is a trip that goes nowhere?
“Dependency and infatuation can easily be mistaken for love. If you don’t trust someone and feel held back by them more than you feel encouraged by them, it’s time to be honest with yourself and do something about it. Just because someone desires you, does not mean that they value you.”
Quite an eye-opener for a random post i read today. This is certainly giving me a lot to think about.

The support and encouragement received from a significant other carries a different kind of weight than that from a friend or family member. This is someone who should also be your best friend and head cheerleader.

This includes personal as well as professional development. To always be improving. Striving for success. Wanting the best for you and for them. Not just for financial reasons, but because it will strengthen you as a couple as well.

I’m not complaining, not really. This arrangement, though a bit strange, seems to be working for myself and the other half. I think what challenges me most about this is the transition period i have whenever i move from one place to the next. It takes me at least a day to settle and get back to a routine.
If you’re free on Saturday why not join the discussion?
