Love

Morning Word
Ladies, there is still a man out there waiting to treat you like you have never been treated before. Guys, there is still a woman out there who is ready to speak life and love into you while she watches you step into your own greatness. Some of us have given so much power to the people from our past that we are afraid of being loved again. After getting your heart broken, one of the biggest mistakes that you can make is, continuing to live your life like everyone else is out to break you as well. I know it takes time to heal. I know it takes time to pick up the pieces and rebuild again but everyone is not out to hurt you. If we continue to live our lives emotionally closed off from the world, there is a very big chance we will never get to experience real happiness. Being emotionally closed off will keep you safe because it will prevent you from getting close to anyone again but it will also turn you bitter. It will poison some of the other solid relationships with other people that you already have. Forgive who hurt you and take steps towards never reliving that pain again. Let it go so that you can let yourself grow into the person you were designed to be. Allow yourself the opportunity to fall in love again without holding on to the past. You will never see who is coming if you are always looking back at who just left.

Reciprocity

Morning Word
Always go where your presence is valued, and where your love is appreciated. You cannot build a life with someone who doesn’t want to make you a part of their day. For every person who ignores you, there is someone else out there willing to give you their complete undivided attention. Reciprocity is key.

One Day

Morning Word
One day you won’t have to wait for it anymore. One day you will be able to wake up beside the person who just “gets you” on a level that no one ever has before. One day the love you have given everyone else, will be reciprocated back by one individual. One day the love of your life will change your life and help you grow as a person. One day you will have someone in your life who is not out to take advantage of you. One day you will be lucky enough to have your best friend in your next relationship. One day you will be with someone who wont sugarcoat the truth and tell you what you always want to hear. One day you will be with someone who isn’t afraid to tell you when you are messing up. One day you will be with someone who won’t abandon you when the relationship gets hard. One day you will be with someone who you can communicate and work things out with. One day you will finally find love.

Selfishness

Morning Word
They say selfishness can be the demise of love. Two people can’t give more to each other if they are both holding back from each other. We all try to play it safe now. We don’t want to take chances on showing what we are capable of giving until the other person has shown us what we are capable of receiving first. Really what we are saying is, “Give me your heart first, and let me think about giving you mines later.” No matter how you slice it, love is a gamble. The only thing holding back will do is, hold you back from happiness completely. And if you are not going to be in it all the way, regroup and take some time to yourself until you can actually make that kind of commitment to someone. There is still a heart out there waiting to love you the same way that you can love them. Heal “You” so you can be the real you when the real thing comes along.

Loving Yourself

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 happy with yourself first and then let someone else add to your happiness and vice versa.

Let It Go

Morning Word
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.

The Right One

Morning Word
The right one makes love feel easy. The right one doesn’t just make you a part of their day, they actually make your day. When you are down, they are there to lift you up. When you are sick, they are there to help bring you back to full health. When you need words of encouragement at the right time, they always know what to say to help get you over your fears. You really can’t put a price on having someone priceless in your life. You really can’t put a price on someone who truly wants to love you over and over again for the next 100 years. What a blessing it is to have someone in your life who will always be in your corner. What a joy it feels like to finally be able to have peace of mind with the one you are in love with. Being able to stand together as teammates in love through any and everything, truly is a blessing.

Meant To Be

Morning Word
Nothing like waking up and knowing that you finally have the one you are meant to be with for the rest of your life. Nothing like never having to worry about being used or taken advantage of ever again. The peace of never having to worry about your heart being broken sometimes can’t even be explained. You can go from falling completely out of love and feeling like you will never have it again, to being a completely different person in a positive way when the right one walks into your life. The person that is meant for you will silence your fears. The person that is meant for you will be so encouraging and inspirational to your life, they will leave your heart feeling like it’s brand new again. When you have the right person, you will find yourself looking forward to new beginnings and new memories for the rest of your life. IG@woodtheinspiration

Easy Love

Morning Word
I believe one of the ultimate goals when it comes to love should be to be with someone who makes your life easier. Be with someone who makes you laugh when you don’t want to. Be with someone who can bring you sunlight during your darkest moments. Be with someone who can provide you with a certain kind of shelter and support when everyone else tries to rain on your parade. To me, when you have someone who truly makes your life easier and can alleviate some of your headaches, you truly do have someone special. Being in love with someone who wants to provide you with peace of mind, is truly one of the greatest feelings that you can ever experience. No one wants to be in a relationship with someone they cant relate with. Your goal should be to be with someone who wants the same things out of life that you do. Someone who you can be on the same page with; mentally, emotionally, physically and last but not least spiritually. Your love for each other, should run parallel with each other. In other words, a relationship is easier when both people are heading in the same direction together. IG@woodtheinspiration

Single Women

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.
