People often refer to older single's as 'leftovers.' Well, I am no leftover, nor do I deserve to settle for someone that is.

Today is the day of my last YSA conference ever. The more I think about that, the more excited I become. I think that I am getting used to the idea of moving on and liking it more as I go. Still though, I need to make the most of this day. My days here are not over yet, I still have a few months until I am 31. So, my goal today is to meet 10 new men. Lofty? Sure, but completely obtainable. The place should be overrun with single men....probably not very old, but single nonetheless. I am not going to be too picky and I'm not going to worry about who anyone else things I should or should not speak to. I will fearlessly approach the men and make some new friends if nothing else. I even had a dream last night of success. I met a nice guy named Chris. And he was a red sox fan.

As I approach this goal, I also want to keep in mind some truths that I stole from the "It's Your Technique" website. Another girl, with the help of the dating coach, posted these a few weeks ago and I loved them. So, here they are:

1. The kind of person I'm looking for is looking for someone like me. They will see me for what I have to offer and will respond to and invest in me.

2. When I am with someone who is emotionally mature, I can be vulnerable, imperfect, and make mistakes, and still be accepted, valued, and loved.

3. Sometimes I will feel and appear foolish, but most people don't notice or care. They are too busy thinking about themselves, their lives, and/or worrying about what others are thinking of them.

4. With God, all things are possible!

I LOVE these! They are so helpful for me, so I'm off. Off to have a successful day and meet new friends and practice interacting with the opposite sex.
