"Next boyfriend? Or ghost of an ex-boyfriend?" // #mantramonday

Date to date, relationship to relationship, guy to guy, there is one common denominator throughout your love life and it's you. So if you find yourself experiencing the same strains of heartache, romantic mishap, or generic douchebaggery I have some bad news: maybe it's you and your less-than-stellar dating habits! But that's actually good news! Because that means you can do something about it!

It isn't uncommon to have a default setting in terms of attraction. Some of us are automatically turned on by the bad boy, others go for the guy who's just lukewarm or slightly unavailable. And some ladies have all the luck and pick the right guy for themselves every damn time. Regardless, it's important to recognize what role you're playing in the beginning stages of a budding romance. If you find yourself feeling the same crappy feelings that you've become accustomed to in previous experiences then that is a wake up call that you might be caught in a cycle of making sucky choices! This week's #mantramonday is here to help:

You are so, so so not alone if this one rings true for you. Don't beat yourself up, just wake up! Don't let your past dictate your future. Decide that you have the power and presence of mind to determine what's right and wrong for you, and what you will and will not tolerate when it comes to your heart. Don't let some spooky ghost of an ex-boyfriend make unnecessary reappearances in relationships to come. You know better! You're smarter than that! You watch #mantramonday videos!

Comment below if you've ever caught yourself in a cycle of dating the same type of guy over and over again. What were the common threads? When did you realize it was time to make a change? And if you haven't recognized it yet...what's stopping you?

I adore each and every one of you, and thank you so much for watching this week! See you so soon.

Much love,

Amy
