I'm a NaNoWriMo Winner

It has nothing whatsoever to do with dating, but I'm so excited to tell you that I'm a winning participant in National Novel Writing Month. I started the first draft of a novel on November 1st. I finished it just a day and seven hours short of the deadline.

For several years, I've considered taking part in NaNoWriMo, but I put it off due to professional and personal reasons. But I did it this year!

I think I may have to open that bottle of Champagne that's been lingering in the fridge.

Attract Better Dates

If you want to meet someone special, you have to get out of the house. But you can go out every single night of the week and come home empty-- if your beliefs aren't in line with what you want to attract.

What qualities do you want in a significant other? Do you even know? More important, do you believe you’re worthy of attracting a person who has them? If you believe you are, you'll likely end up with a partner who thrills you. But, if you believe, deep down, that people who go out with you are doing you a favor, you'll draw people who are only too glad to prove you right.

The Law of Attraction states, “Like attracts like.” If you continually end up in disappointing romances, your beliefs are clearly not doing you any favors. The good news is that you can change them. When you change your beliefs, you change your destiny.

How do you get The Law of Attraction to do your bidding? Affirmation is a highly effective method. Instead of telling yourself, for instance, “Monogamous relationships don’t last,” write an affirmation like this:

“I am happily enjoying a lasting, passionate, monogamous relationship.”

The key is to write the affirmation in present tense. It’s not, “I will enjoy a….” Write, “I am enjoying,” instead. Make it positive. Don’t affirm, “I no longer date control freaks.” Summon The Law to your aid by announcing, “I am happily dating a gorgeous person who loves me, trusts me, and supports my dreams.”

The more you use your affirmation, the sooner it will seep into your subconscious. Once your subconscious mind accepts a belief, it’ll act on it.

Before you know it, you’ll find yourself attracting better, more suitable lovers. Soon enough, you will find yourself in a satisfying romance without the usual attendant drama. After it’s under way, continue using your affirmation. Use The Law of Attraction to avoid the pitfalls that can sabotage a relationship.

In the meantime, know what you want and affirm that you have it. Then get out of the house.
