I personally always cringed when people said "don't settle" because I genuinely believe that no one is "better" than anyone else. A friend however clarified that the phrase is actually about not settling for anything less than all that you WANT. This can apply to anything really... love, your career, how and where you want to live your life. It is a standard we should all hold ourselves to :)
This song: "You'll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight Lead me out on the moonlit floor Lift you open hand Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance Silvermoon's sparkling, So kiss me"
