Good Relationship

Morning Word
Whoever you decide to be with, just make sure that you are not the only one committed to the relationship. There is nothing more worse than being with someone who doesn’t care about investing in the relationship. So many people out here are stressing themselves out because they are the only one doing things to keep the relationship afloat. And I don’t care how much you love someone, a relationship will never reach its potential if you are the only one doing all of the heavy lifting. When it comes to love, we all were wired to feed off of each other’s energy. You can’t be the only one pouring; effort, care, love, support and encouragement, and continue to let the other person neglect their responsibility of returning reciprocity back to you. Please choose someone who will give you a return on your investment. Love functions better when you both move together like a team.

Good Men

Morning Word
All men are not the same. Every man won’t cheat on you. Every man won’t disrespect you. I know the world wants you to believe that men do not value relationships anymore, but we do. I know the world wants you to believe that we are incapable of giving one woman our all, but we can. I know deep down inside you are afraid of opening up and getting hurt, but guess what? So are we. Ladies, there are still men out here who value love and loyalty. There are still men out here who are patiently waiting to make you a priority. There are still men out here who want to court you and win you over the right way. Some of us still believe in taking care of your soul and your body. Some of us still believe in making you smile more than making you cry. Some of us still understand how much of a blessing it is to have that “one great woman” by our side. Ladies, don’t let this world make you believe that we do not honor you, because we do. Don’t let this world make you believe that we aren’t prepared to love you, because we are. And last but not least, don’t let this world make you believe that good faithful men don’t exist anymore, because we do.

Self Esteem

Morning Word
So many people battle with self esteem problems everyday. So many people think that the cure to getting over their self esteem issues is being loved by someone else. And while another person’s love can help transform us and inspire us to grow into becoming better individuals, it doesn’t have the power to solve every personal problem that we find ourselves running away from. We have to love the skin that we are in. We have to stop making other people responsible for how we “personally” feel about ourselves. Love starts with self. Loving who you are makes it easier for other people to be in love with you. I said this before and I’ll say it again, “how we feel about ourselves, infects itself into our relationships with other people.” A low self esteem will have you dealing with a person that you have no business dealing with. A low self esteem will have you pushing away good people when it comes to love because you can’t even identify what it is on a very basic personal level when it comes to loving yourself. We have to take responsibility for taking care of our emotions first before trying to be in love with other people.

Teammates

Morning Word
We can go a lot further as a couple if we start looking at each other as teammates in love. We can win together. We can learn together. We can support each other together. We can lift each other up together. We can be each other’s hero together. We can even inspire and motivate each other together. We are not each other’s enemy. We have to get past fighting against each other, so that we can get to the other side of our blessings by working together. Take care of me, I’ll take care of you, and our love for each other will take care of the rest.

Your Past

Morning Word
Stop using your past to gauge whether or not love is coming into your life. Stop looking back if you are really looking forward to having someone special one day. When you look back on your past, you should be looking back with a mindset of learning from your mistakes. You should be looking back remembering that what you have been through, will always aid you towards growing into a better person. Stop feeling like you are cursed or that you have bad luck because you have been through a few bad situations with a few bad people. All of us go through trials. All of us have been through a few things designed to break our spirit, faith and beliefs. However, life always gives us the gift of redemption and the gift of bouncing back. You could be hurting today and end up being happy tomorrow. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Learn to be more proud, patient and positive as great things start to take place in your life.

Hard To Get

Morning Word
Maybe she is not playing hard to get. Maybe she is not stuck up like you think she is. When a woman uses her discernment and intuition to see if she should entertain you or not, it’s not to play you…it’s to protect her. If your demeanor doesn’t gel well with hers or if your energy doesn’t feel right to her spirit, don’t take it personal when she doesn’t engage with you like you think she should. Sometimes a woman can reject you not because you aren’t a good man, but because she knows she won’t be any good at making you happy during that present phase in her life. You can have a good heart and still not be a good fit for a good woman. And one thing life has taught me is, “All good hearts don’t belong together”.

Beautiful Hearts

Morning Word
Amazing how you can go through so much turmoil and ugliness in your life and still not become it. Two beautiful hearts will always be able to find the beauty in each other regardless of the downfalls each of them have been through. And even though you may have a past that you regret reflecting on, that still won’t stop the person who adores you from being a part of your life. Even on your darkest days, your presence alone can still be the brightest part of someone else’s day. The bricks from your past that you used to build up barriers, can also be used to build a loving home once the right person enters your life.

Someone Special

Morning Word
It’s nice to have someone you can celebrate small victories with when you have been losing for such a long time. It’s nice to have someone who can make you forget all the pain you have been through when their love comes at the right time. To be loved by the right person genuinely and unconditionally is truly one of the best feelings in the world. The older you get, the more you end up cherishing the small things in life. You end up cherishing having someone worth waking up to. You end up cherishing comfortable silences with deep talks and slow back rubs. You end up cherishing making beautiful memories together. You end up cherishing finally having someone who understands you on a level that no one else has before. You end up appreciating the fact that even when you both disagree on certain things, your love for each other will always bring you both back to each other. The older you get, the more you end up wanting the things out of life that money can’t buy…. like being in love with the right person..

Positive Relationship

Morning Word
It’s about pouring positive things into each other. It’s about being each other’s biggest fan, biggest supporter and biggest inspiration while you both walk together in love. Too many times we all get lost in the superficials. We want people to be a certain height. We want people to make a certain amount of money and so on. If you run across someone who makes you better as a person when you are around them, that is someone worth holding on to. Everyone can’t help trigger great things inside of you and still love you like you are the only thing that matters. Find someone you can have stimulating conversations with. Someone you can learn from and grow with when you are around them. Genuine hearts and genuine people like that are rare these days.

Wait

Morning Word
You owe it to yourself to wait on someone who is worth your love and attention. I believe that you can give yourself a better chance at succeeding in your next relationship just by being more patient. It’s a lot of people out here looking to waste your time. It’s a lot of people out here looking to use you just to see what they can get out of you. Some people out here aren’t looking for love, they are looking for someone they can use for their own agenda just to get ahead. You owe it to yourself to take as much time as you can exploring someone’s heart. The last thing you need is another fool in your life putting you through the same things that the last fool did. Wait for someone who you feel like is truly making a dedicated effort to be in your life. Wait for someone who has the patience to wait for you to open up about your scars. Wait for someone who truly listens to understand you, and wants to reciprocate that same energy right back to you. Wait for someone special, someone who the rest of the world doesn’t know about.
