Spring Into Action

Posted: Updated:

Spring is here, and love is in the air! Can you feel it? There is still a chill in the air, but each day is getting warmer and longer.

Spring is a time for rebirth. Everything in nature starts to grow and bloom. For each and every one of you, now is the chance to grow and bloom too. Let's spring into action, shake off anything that has been holding us back and step forward with a new outlook on life.

As a matchmaker I've had the most success with people who come to me in a positive and happy state of mind. It's the people who have learned from their life experiences and moved forward who are truly ready for happiness. It is easier to find love if you are in a good place, mentally and emotionally.

On the opposite side of the coin are the clients who do not realize that their state of mind is what is holding them back from finding love. Too often people have a negative outlook on life without even realizing it. And what makes matters worse is that they do not realize that the people they meet can sense that negative energy and are automatically turned off.

So with a new season starting, take this opportunity to sit down and look at your life. Are you happy? If you find that there is something in your life holding you back from happiness, take action and change it. Remember that you are in control of your destiny.

Trust me. Happiness does not happen for just a chosen few. Happiness happens for those who spring into action and make the best out of life that they can. And once they do, happiness comes to them.

One day very soon the chill of winter is going to be gone. Leave any bad experiences behind you and move on. Grab your sunglasses, step out into the sunshine, take time to stop and smell the flowers and put a smile on your face. Good days filled with love and happiness are here.

Your friendly neighborhood matchmaker,
