Mindfulness is no different.” – Amy Baglan

Power Quotes From The Show
“There's always going to be work to do in a relationship, but you get to choose who you want to do it with. You and your partner have to learn how to be in conflict together. So, if doing that work and being in conflict together always brings out the worst in both of you, that tells you something about your relationship.” – Amy Baglan
“I've always had this desire that people show up as their authentic self rather than put on a front or be superficial. I can't connect with others when they're not being true about themselves.” – Amy Baglan
“I always urge people to look at how a potential partner acts and not pay attention to what they say. The way that people show up in the world, their behavior, and how they treat other people including yourself cannot be filtered by words.” – Amy Baglan
“Dating apps are almost like a trigger happy, fast food style atmosphere where there's almost too many options and choices. This is teaching younger generations that this is all there is. They learn that people can be disposable and that the quantity of connections over quality is better.” – Amy Baglan
“If all a person does is share pictures of selfies on a dating app and they only care about what their body looks like, then they probably don't value anything else about themselves. If that's the case, then I certainly don't think they're going to value much else about myself either.” – Amy Baglan
