Dont just be arm candy

Posted on: May 3, 2014

Who doesn’t love going somewhere with a certain someone and you be the talk of the whole event. Their friends high-fiving them and congratulating them for having you as a date. It feels pretty good if I do say so myself.

But, something that I preach from the mountain tops over and over again, don’t let yourself be just arm candy. Don’t be that girl/guy that people bring along just because you’re good-looking, dress well or are charming. Being those things isn’t bad, but don’t let it define you.

Be the person that has something to talk about; projects, what you’ve learned, your aspirations, what keeps your mind ticking at night when you’re trying to go to sleep. Those things that make a person unique besides their appearance. Being something nice to look at gets old real fast.

 

Let your personality and what’s inside your mind shine above all else. Because your beauty will fade but that light inside your eyes that shines when you talk about your dreams, doesn’t.
