    You know when you build this awesome domino

    I think it gets easier everyday.

    If there is one thing I have learned in my 29+

    years on this earth it's that I don't need anyone. This is the longest I've been single in 10 years and I've never been happier. You have to do you first. Be selfish it's ok.
