While breakups totally suck they are a great opportunity to upgrade and reset your life.

Whenever I go through a breakup I like to evolve into me 2.0. Yeah, you need to take time to be sad but it’s also a great time to focus on becoming the most bad ass version of yourself.

Breakups feel like a new beginning to me, it’s the perfect time to reevaluate your life and figure out what you really want.

I always find myself redecorating my apartment, going vegan, getting a gym membership, changing my hair and reading tons of personal development books.
