Why You Should Never Settle

The concept of settling is one I've only recently explored. I recently sat with a friend who felt like she was in the same boat in her relationship. I see it everywhere now.

Seriously? Serious. I'm a strong believer in how your morning routine sets the tone for the rest of your day (and overall life, tbh). Read a self-help book. I'm serious.
