Maybe

Morning Word
Maybe you both were put into each other’s lives to help each other grow. Maybe you both met for a reason. Maybe you both could teach each other something about love that no one else ever could. Maybe you both were tailor made for each other. Maybe you both were the perfect person to bring out each other’s greatness and potential. Maybe you both support each other like no one else ever has. Maybe you both could do things in your relationship that you never could with anyone else. Maybe you both could expand each other’s horizons and show each other new things in life. Maybe you both understand each other’s sense of humor, which is why you laugh so hard when you are around each other. Maybe you both understand each other’s pain from the past, which is why you love each other so hard now. Maybe you both have peace of mind knowing that you have finally met the person you are meant to spend the rest of your life with.

Promise Me

Morning Word
Promise me that you will take as much time as you need to work on yourself before your next relationship. Promise me that you will never let your past heartaches find its way into your next relationship. Promise me that when you finally find someone, you will support them in every way possible and that you will always try being a positive source in that person’s life. Promise me that you will not keep records of past mistakes they have made and that you will not constantly remind them of their flaws. Promise me that you will listen to understand instead of listening to reply when you two do have arguments or disagreements. Promise me that your love for them will always remain at the forefront no matter what happens that day. Promise me that you will walk with them through the storms and not run for cover and abandon them when it rains. Promise me that even on your bad days, they will still get the best possible version of you.

Comparison

Morning Word
Stop living your life so comparatively. Comparison is the thief of joy. You have to be happy with who you are and what you have going on in your own life if you want to maintain a steady level of happiness. Just because you are single and you see that your friends are in a relationship, it doesn’t mean that everything is perfect in their world. Just because you are in a relationship and you always see another couple taking trips and going to extravagant places, it doesn’t mean that they do not have relationship problems just like the next couple. Stop comparing your life to other people and using it as a gauge for validation. No one has a picture perfect life or a picture perfect relationship. When you can appreciate the things that you already have in your own life, you will spend less time trying to see what is going on in everyone else’s.

Reciprocity

Morning Word
Any relationship that is not grounded in reciprocity will die. The problem with love today is, many of us want love but aren’t committed to being in love. Commitment means staying true to giving your all to your partner long after the romantic mood is gone. It’s working through the tough times in your relationship when things get hard. If you are the kind of person that can only be committed to someone when they are shining, you don’t deserve anyone at all. Your partner needs to know that you will have their back in their darkest hours. Your partner needs to know that you will help them weather the rain when they see dark clouds coming. Stop demanding that people give you everything when you give them nothing at all in return. You don’t want to be in love, you just want to use love and see what it is you can get out of it.

Good Heart

Morning Word
I still believe that a good heart will eventually find its way back to love. I still believe that no matter what you may have went through in your past, someone out there in the world is still praying to have a person like you one day. Just because you are single, that doesn’t mean that you lack importance or that you can’t be a blessing to someone else in the future. We have to start speaking victory over our love life and not defeat. Instead of saying, “I doubt I’ll ever fall in love again”, start saying, “My next relationship will be my best relationship.” I want you to understand that, good hearts don’t have expiration dates when it comes to love. There is no certain time frame or small window of opportunity that you have before your time runs out. You will fall in love again one day when the time is right, not because you time it right. Don’t let your good heart turn sour because you want things to happen on your own time. IG@woodtheinspiration

Inspiring Love

Morning Word
So many people fall in love with a person’s potential not even keeping in mind that potential is something that cannot be guaranteed. If you see someone as a flower but they always see themselves as a seed, there will be no true growth on their part until they raise their level of vision. As you grow wise, you start to realize that you have to fall in love with who someone is at the moment, flaws and all. The most you can do to inspire someone’s growth is give them unconditional inspiring love. The right love from the right person at the right time, can truly have a great impact on the other person. And if you understand the power of love, you already know that your love can be the very thing that inspires and pushes someone else to greatness.

Patience

Morning Word
Waiting is just a part of the process to being happy one day. You have to stick to your guns until you meet that one person that would make you regret not being in a relationship with them. Now it doesn’t mean that you two will have the perfect relationship because there is no such thing. You both will still have to put in the hours of learning how to gel with each other while you both learn each other’s love language, but at least you’ll have someone worth taking a chance on love with. They have to be special enough that, you wouldn’t mind sharing a piece of your peace with them. Inviting someone into your life on a deeper level is a power most people don’t understand and a privilege other people often take for granted. Start being more selective with sharing your time. Start being more selective with sharing your peace. And start being more selective with sharing your heart. IG@woodtheinspiration

Good Men

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.

Love

Morning Word
And then without even realizing it, with no warning at all, you will finally meet the one person that will end up meaning the world to you. Their presence in your life will enhance everything around you. Your attitude will become more pleasant. Your goals and dreams will seem like they are more attainable. They won’t judge you or make you feel unappreciated. It will never be perfect timing, but you both will still manage to fit into each other’s lives perfectly. You both will never have the perfect relationship, but this relationship will feel like it’s the easiest relationship that you have ever been in. You will help each other grow. You will encourage each other during the hardest times. You both will keep each other lifted when life wants to keep you both down. You really can’t put a price on having a true companion in your corner to go through life with. The right person will make you feel like a weight has been lifted. They will help you breathe easier.

Trust

Morning Word
I’ve heard it said that “relationships move at the speed of trust”. When two people wholeheartedly trust each other, the relationship is really in a good space to continue growing naturally. Trust is a very important foundation to have in a relationship. Aside from God being the first and strongest foundation for a couple to build on, trust is definitely vital to maintaining a healthy relationship. If only one person trust, the relationship only has a 50 percent chance of making it. If both people don’t trust each other, the relationship has no chance of making it at all. You have to be able to fully let go of all of your doubts and fears, and truly trust the one you are in love with if you want the relationship to grow. Otherwise, you’ll just end up holding the relationship back from reaching it’s fullest potential.
