Special Love

Morning Word
They say it’s all about the first person you want to tell the good news to. The person who has given you unwavering support since the very first day you two have met. The person who not only supports your dreams but stays up with you all night to help you come up with ways on achieving those dreams. At the end of the day all we really want is love and support. In a world where everybody is trying to discourage you, having someone in your corner who is willing to walk with you through the madness is truly a blessing. As long as we have that one consistent person in our corner, nothing else even matters. As long as we have that one person’s love that we can lean on during our darkest days, finding our way back to the light will never feel impossible like it used to. We all deserve to have that special kind of love that we can always count on.

Your Type

Morning Word
Sometimes your type may be the only thing that is keeping you away from someone special. Sometimes your type may be the only thing that is keeping you away from your one true love. Sometimes your type won’t possess any of the concrete core values that you need in someone to have a healthy successful relationship. The problem with sticking to a type is that you limit your chances when it comes to love. You will casually drift away from important things like, seeing if someone can fit into your life to, seeing if someone can fit into this box you have created. Don’t box in your love and then try to make everyone you meet live inside that box. Be open minded to loving someone outside of your box. Be open minded to loving someone outside of what you have always looked for. Explore different horizons when it comes to love. Sometimes changing your view can be the best thing for you.

Let it go

It’s time that you started letting things go. Let go of the past so that it doesn’t affect your future. Let go of the pain so that it doesn’t affect your happiness. Let go of all the burdens you carry around so that it doesn’t affect the blessings coming your way. Let go of holding onto negativity so that it doesn’t drain your positive energy. Let go of things that you can’t do anything about so that you can focus on the things that you can actually control right now. Let go of holding onto grudges towards other people because they treated you unfairly. Stop trying to carry every bad thing with you that happens to you in life. The reason you have so much weight on your shoulders is because you refuse to let things go. Stop being a hoarder to the wrong things and start being open minded to the good things. Let it go so that you can allow yourself to grow.

Dating

All you can do is roll the dice when it comes to love and pray that the person you fall for is the same person that catches you in the end. Dating is so hard now because so many people falsely project these ideas to the other person that they want something real, when deep down inside all most people really want is something “real quick”. No one wants to work towards investing in a future anymore. Now what you have is a bunch of short term people taking advantage of long term people’s desires. And the whole time while you are sharing what seems to be common interests with someone, in hindsight the two of you couldn’t be more further apart. Now its like everybody wants to take something from you and leave your heart with the scraps. And it shouldn’t be like that.

Love Is

Morning Word
I think one of the biggest misconceptions when it comes to love is, so many people think that love has to do with another person being responsible for completely making them happy. Love isn’t about taking the backseat and watching someone else do all the work to make you happy. Love is “sharing your happiness with someone else”. Love is loving who you are and being patient until you come across someone else who you would love to share yourself with. It isn’t about trying to find someone who can fill a void when you are lonely. You have to love who you are before you can love someone else. If you do not love who you are or if you are feeling completely miserable on the inside as a person, you have no business at all trying to share that with someone else. Be happy with yourself first before trying to be happy with someone else. When you think someone else deserves to have the best parts of you, that’s love. That is taking a true leap of faith. Be the happy with yourself first and then let someone else add to your happiness and vice versa.

Being Single

Morning Word
You don’t have to be “in love”, to be “in your happiness”. There are so many people right now in relationships that they feel like they cant get out of. There are so many people right now sleeping beside someone who does not love and respect them anymore. There are so many people right now wishing that they could be in your position and be single so that they could just get back to feeling like themselves again. The greatest benefit with being single is, you don’t have to worry about someone else taking your love for granted and disrespecting you behind your back. You have the ability to wake up every morning and step into your own happiness knowing that you are blessed. I said this before and I’ll say it again, being single is not a curse. Take all the time you need so that you can wait on that one person who will give you the best chance with being in love.

You Are Still A Blessing

Morning Word
You are still the person someone is praying for one day. Being single is not a curse. It’s way better keeping to yourself and being happy than being with someone who doesn’t treasure and value you at all. Those are the worse relationships. It hurts when you keep giving and giving and giving and nothing changes in the other person’s attitude towards you. They make you feel like nothing you do will ever be enough. They make you feel alone and worthless. They might even take it a step further and show other people more love and attention than they do with you. Those type of people are not the ones meant to love you. However, someone who has been praying for you and waiting on you, will make everything that has to do with love a lot more easier. They will never treat you like you are not important. They will never put another person’s smile above yours. They will never make it such a struggle for you two to be happy. They will compliment your needs and your effort the same way that you do with them. That’s your teammate. That’s your life partner.

Monitoring People

Morning Word
Stop trying to monitor and control everything someone does in a relationship. If someone is giving you reasons to keep your guard up that is one thing but if they aren’t, loosen up your grip and allow that person’s love to work it’s way through your insecurities and trust issues. The biggest mistake people make when trying to monitor and control other people in relationships is, they think that doing all of these things will prevent the other person from cheating on them. Here is the thing. If you think someone has it in them to cheat on you, don’t be in a relationship with that person. And if you feel like you still have problems with trust and letting other people love you, then you do not need to be in a relationship at all. Cheating is a personal decision that the other person makes for whatever reason outside of that relationship. Cheating is a clear sign of a breakdown in communication between the two people involved in a relationship. There is nothing that you can do about a selfish decision that someone else makes that will affect the dynamics of your relationship. All you can do is put your best foot forward when it comes to love. However, one thing you can’t do is monitor someone to see if they will cheat on you because when you do, you end up cheating yourself out of truly having a great relationship.

Men Care About Love Too

Morning Word
But then you have the guys who don’t get enough credit for being great men. The guys who truly understand the worth behind a woman’s smile. The guys who love a woman the right way long enough that it changes her perception of men in a good way. Truth is, there are a lot of men out here who do value strong relationships built on love and trust. Truth is, there are a great amount of men out here who will do whatever it takes to keep their woman happy without receiving the praise and recognition that they should receive. There are a lot of men out here who help women unpack their baggage from previous relationships in a loving and caring manner. These guys understand their role in relationships and the importance of being their woman’s protector. They understand that power can be found in a woman’s softness if they choose to tap into it the right way. They value a woman’s grace and never allow themselves to get in the way of a woman’s power to naturally be a nurturer and help. Believe it or not, men care about being in love too.

Women & Dating

Morning Word
One reason why some single women have problems with single men when it comes to dating is because, some single men are only focused on being physical. Some single men are more interested in having sex and exchanging physical energy than they are with exchanging dialogue and having a real conversation. Without knowing anything about the woman or what she has been through, some guys have a way of projecting their own selfish desires on women. For women it’s a red flag. They cant see themselves having a serious long term relationship with a man giving off this kind of vibe. Women want to know things like; “Are you family oriented? Are you ambitious? Are you looking for someone to settle down with? Do you believe in being a provider? Are you planted firmly in a strong spiritual foundation? Are you healed from your last relationship? Do you love children?, What do you like to do for fun?” and so on. They want to know about the man as a person, and they want the man to take the same time trying to understand them as well.
