Man, so tonight was so memorable that I had to blog about it.
Now usually, this would just be another fun night out with my crew, going crazy at the clubs with trap music.
But something about tonight was different; tonight, the headliner was TOKiMONSTA. She’s a DJ out of Koreatown, LA. And man, tonight, I went crazy. I haven’t been this lost into the music or this hyped up in awhile.
I think part of it has to do with the fact that this week was extremely stressful with having midterms and also 2 projects for my engineering classes to work on. And going out tonight and being surrounded by all this music, good company, and dope vibes helped me reduce all this stress.
Another part of this seems to have to do with TOKiMONSTA herself. I’ve been a loyal follower of her music for a few years and from the very beginning, I have loved her music. The vibe she puts out is just so contagious. She is so passionate about her music and it clearly shows when she is ripping her set. She was smiling the whole time, she was dancing, she was vibing out and this made everyone else in the club go crazy and be on her level.
I love people who have so much passion for what they love. It’s very rare to find someone with as much dedication to her craft as TOKi, and that is just so admirable, respectful, and quite honestly, so attractive. Combine this with the fact that she’s beautiful, cute, and has the most adorable voice… Man… I might’ve fallen in love tonight…
Wait… I don’t know where this post is supposed to be going…

ARE YOU WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER?
During a seminar, a woman asked,” How do I know if I am with the right person?”
The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, “It depends. Is that your partner?”
In all seriousness, she answered “How did you know?”
"Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind." replied the author.
Here’s the answer:
Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love.
People in love sometimes say, I was swept of my feet. Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.
Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.
Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.
At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.
People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.
Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.
I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later.
Because (listen carefully to this)
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the Person you found.
SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it.
Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.
Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.
Remember this always: the universe determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go!I reblog this every time I see it
