Motivational Monday || Self Care in Dating


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

It's Monday. A new week, a new leaf. I'll be starting off my week in Seattle (we fly home today) so that's not a bad place to be eh?


I saw this on Pinterest and felt like it was the right thing to share this week. 

I'm at a place in my life that I hadn't planned on being. I'm 30, I'm single and I'm aware of other people. Men people. Oh hai. 

I keep typing and deleting things because I don't fully know where I'm going with this post. Perhaps I'll just leave it here and update you as and when. I'm facing something very new. It's exciting and a tiny bit scary but I like it. 

As I go forward with my new chapter, I'm going to remind myself to always take self care, respect who I am and be my best Louise, no matter what. 

I hope that if you are in the same boat as me, you will join me in those things and that we will find most lovely Kings to treat us like Queens. 

Toodlepip!

xx

  2. I was about to say I saw this on Pinterest this morning as well, but then I realized that you were the one who pinned it! I absolutely love this and hopefully I will be able to find my king sometime as well! xoxo

  4. I feel like this is such an important quote, because it goes well with a way of thinking that I support a lot "Love yourself, then others will, too". You will get what you give (most of the time) and if you want someone to treat you very good, then so should you. I hope you'll be able to have fun once you start dating again. Let us know all about it ♥

  5. Love your motivational mondays. I think it's true - the most important thing is to know you are as a person and what you want, then everything else will hopefully fall into place :)

    Have a safe flight home!

  7. Love the quote, and nice to see that you're treating it with a positive outlook which is the right way to go. Instead of thinking 'I'm 30'... think 'I'm ONLY 30' and have some fun!! xx

  9. Life is what you make it Louise, so make it great! Being single takes some getting used too, especially after being in a relationship for so long, you get dependent on that other person and forget what it is like to be just you! Now is the time to find yourself and do the things you enjoy most, or even find some new exciting things to do! Love to you and your family.

  10. I'm with you, Louise. You have to be the version of yourself, that you can (as cheesy as it sounds). I wish you well on this new phase of your life x

  12. These are always my favourite posts. The image is so true, before I start properly dating I want to be comfortable with myself.

  13. How very true, Louise. I'm just glad I found my king even though I wasn't treating myself like a queen. I met him when I was nearly 20 and 23 years later we're still together. Even in this day and age, marriage/relationships can last. You just have to really work at them if you think he's worth it. (Nothing against those who aren't able to stay together. Things happen.) <3

  14. I've been single for 5 years and I am happy but so ready to find my own other half to enjoy life with! Good luck with your new journey Louise, I hope you're super happy and feel joyous all the time <3

  15. Hello! :-)
    Ahhh I really do adore your motivational Monday's, I've been following your blog for a while but only recently set myself up on google, started my own very very ammature blog and worked out how to ACTUALLY follow a blog haha!

    Things sound very new, exciting and positive for you!
    Can't wait to hear more ☺️

  16. So much love for this quote! (And you, Louise!) Hope you and your gorgeous daughter have had the best time in Seattle! <3

  17. It must be scary and exciting at the same time. Its a time for you to get to know yourself as just yourself again and not as 'two people' as a lot of people feel when they are in a relationship. Its a time for you too be selfish without any guilt and without hurting anyone! Enjoy your time single and experience new things and get to know Louise again. You will find someone without even looking, they will turn up when the time is right 'what is for you won't pass you by' x lynseyemily.blogspot.co.uk

  18. I've never had a boyfriend but I absolutely love your post and truly believe what you say - even if I don't have much experience myself! I read your blog posts and watch all your videos - motivational mondays are definitely one of the best things. It's always really nice to read a friendly article on serious, important topics :)

  20. That is seriously such a great quote. I haven't had the best luck this year with guys, especially as of late, and it's so easy to feel unworthy of love when you face rejection. Bleh! This is a wonderful quote, though, to do just the opposite of that and realize you are totally worth it! (Cue cheesy L'Oreal quote). I hope all continues to go well with you and your life, and I hope you had a great time in Seattle! :)

  24. So glad you posted this because I really needed to read it. I've recently gotten out of a 5 year relationship and am starting the whole new and scary process of dating again. I think another thing to remember is to be unapologetically you, don't change because it's what you think a certain guy will like. Hope this new journey works out well for you.

  30. I can totally relate! Although I'm not 30 (yet) I always thought I'd be somewhere else in life by the time I'm 25. But hey, so far I've learnt that the best things always happen unexpectedly, so don't plan too much, just live your life and someone special might show up when you least expect it! :)

  45. Hello Everyone, I do hope my post gets read and hopefully helps somebody
    along the line. My Name is Lisa from United States NYC, I have no words to express my gratitude, Dr iyare...I have fought with infertility issues for more than a decade. My Gyn told a year ago that one of my tubes was blocked, and had insisted that IVF was the only option left for me. I was desperate and terrified due to my relatively advanced age (I was 38 a year ago) and the 2 ovarian cysts that were giving me hell, that I would be childless. My husband and I decided we will keep on fighting as I have read many awful stories about the side effects, the low success rates and pain involved with the IVF procedure so we kept looking for a natural alternative. We almost gave up and then I found your website http://iyareyarespellstemple.webs.com/ and emailed you for guidance. You were so supportive and kind that I immediately ordered your Pregnancy spell and started the program along with my husband who had poor sperm motility(I did all what you ask me). After 2 weeks of trying I got pregnant with my first baby boy. With one blocked tube and 2 ovarian cysts, I think this is nothing short of a miracle! you can visit his web site http://iyareyarespellstemple.webs.com/ or email him via iyareyaresolutiontemple@gmail.com Thank you for everything, Dr iyare!

Eden od ključnih uresničevanje te obetavne prihodnosti je zagotoviti, da celotno tržniki skupaj (i., akcija), dodaja, do več kot vsota njegovih delov.Many thanks for posting this, It?s just what I was researching for on bing. I?d a lot relatively hear opinions from an individual, barely than an organization web page, that?s why I like blogs so significantly. Many thanks!Well, the article is really the sweetest on this laudable topic. http://www.healthcaresdiscussion.com/alpha-zxt/

    SPARTAGEN XT was worth the time. I noticed this website was buried in bing and not the number one spot. This weblog has a lot of decent stuff and it doesnt deserve to be burried in the searches like that. http://www.webheathcare.com/spartagen-xt-

  55. I'm closer to 40, and haven't had children like I wanted to, and I'm more and more afraid that it isn't in the cards for me. But, life is possible without a man :) They are nice to have around, but I know I'm strong enough (and so are you!). Things will happen when they are meant to!

  56. If doable, as you achieve expertise, would you mind updating your weblog Alpha ZXT with further info? It is extremely helpful for me.Never Ever give up: Even though you fail initially; Dont manage to get a great deal of views at first, do your self a favour, do not give up.http://www.healthsupreviews.com/is-alpha-zxt-scam-or-legit/

  58. My name is SERENA WILLIAMS, am from UK. i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man DR.EWAN brought my husband back to me, i had three lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i did them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully did what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.that's why i want to say a big thank you to DR.EWAN spiritual temple. This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at:covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com, you can still call him on his mobile number +2347052958531 SERENAWILLIAMSuk@gmail.com
