* You Choose *

Finished watching this wonderful film called "Arranged."
It's about two women (one an Orthodox Jewish and a Muslim) who are each pressured by their families to accept their arranged marriages and through the frustrating process learn they have much in common and form a friendship.

Highly recommend watching this, especially to all the ladies out there:

Mom: You don't want to wind up an old maid
Rochel: What do you want me to do? Marry someone who I have no interest in or has no interest in me? All these men are either totally self absorbed or they can't even hold a normal conversation. I'm sorry. I'm not willing to settle.

Given that we live in a day and age where we are given the choice of choosing who want to marry, we really shouldn't take that lightly. Pick wisely. And if you haven't found anyone, don't feel pressured to give in and find any guy just because you feel you need to have a boyfriend to be worthy of love. The world has this odd idea that if you're single, nobody loves you. And the longer you wait, the less likely you'll find love.

I believe being single is probably one of the most empowering statuses. Simply because you can choose your own future and not live by anyone else's standards.

You decide when and who. On your own terms.
