When I was a little girl I dreamed of having my own magazine. I even used to type out my own little stories on my old-school typewriter with a view to piecing them together one day. However soon I was at uni and suddenly I was a lawyer. My heart got buried by sensibility as the 'practicalities of life' ensured I pursued a stable professional career. But I knew.

Be smarter & have more self respect than that!

I wonder what it feels like to be someones first choice... I use to think this all the time b/c I was the awkward, tall, loud, blunt, a tomboy and never anyone's first choice... and then my now husband pursued me. He chose me. And we're living our happily ever after! Sometimes you have to stop asking what you need to do to change yourself to find someone who will pick you first, and just be you... b/c the more time you spend not being you, the harder it is for your match to find YOU!
