Embrace Love

Morning Word
When love finds you again, embrace it. I know it’s a natural reaction to take off running. I know that sometimes you can’t help but think about all of the failed relationships you have been through and how much it has affected you in a negative way. But embrace love finding its way back to you again. Allow your heart a chance to finally rejoice in a happiness that you have never felt before. When we run away from love, in hindsight we are actually running towards the pain. Emotionally shutting ourselves off from the world will never make us happy. We function better when we allow love to work its way through us in a positive way. We become much more confident and courageous. We become much more compassionate and are able to do things for other people genuinely from the heart that we normally wouldn’t do. Emotionally, mentally and spiritually, we become healthier individuals because the right kind of love can help us grow in the areas that we are the weakest in. When love finds you again embrace it because you might be doing yourself a favor.

All She Need

Morning Word
She doesn’t need expensive gifts. She doesn’t need expensive dinners. I mean sure all of those things would be nice but, all she really needs is you. She needs your listening ear when she is ready to vent. She needs your shoulder to cry on when life gets hard on her. She needs your words of encouragement when she is getting ready to pursue her dreams. She needs to be able to feel safe around you, and know that you have her best interest when it comes to her heart. And if it’s taking her a while to let you in, she isn’t trying to punish you. She just doesn’t want to repeat making the same mistakes she has made in the past of giving a man her all, just to find out that he couldn’t match her effort. Love her genuinely. Love her patiently. Love her passionately. And last but not least, love her consistently and in return, she will love you like you have never been loved before.

Life Is A Marathon

Morning Word
Life is a marathon. It’s a journey that takes us through a course filled with a number of highs and lows. If you are grateful enough, one day you will meet someone running that same marathon with you. You both will share similar experiences on this marathon. You both will learn to develop a certain rhythm and pace with each other. You both will learn to develop a deeper bond with each other as you hop over hurdles and obstacles “together” on this journey. You both will help push each other to the next level. I guess what I’m trying to say is, life and love go hand in hand. The goal is to be with someone who you can run the entire marathon with, without giving up on each other. Be with someone who wants to cross the finish line to happiness just as much as you do. Be with someone who is willing to hold your hand through every storm and hop over every hurdle that presents itself in your life. Your life partner will not only never leave you behind but, they will also help keep you on track. And love is all about two people reaching happiness, success and blessings together at the same time.

Happiness

Morning Word
You don’t have to wait until you meet someone special, to live a happy life. Sometimes we can tie too much of our happiness to someone else. We overlook the fact that we can still make the choice to be happy with who we are and who we have in our lives. If you meet someone special tomorrow, then by all means enjoy that person. But if you don’t, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be out here enjoying your life. Being single does not mean that you have to walk around being miserable too.

The Wrong Relationship

Morning Word
One of the hardest things to do is to tell your heart “No” when emotionally it still wants to say “Yes” to someone who is not good for you. Sometimes we’ll get so caught up in seeing a person in a certain light that we’ll begin to overlook the obvious. We’ll overlook them taking advantage of us. We’ll overlook them taking us for granted for their own personal agenda. And because we fear being alone or fear starting over, we’ll continue to try progressing a relationship that we know we shouldn’t be settling for. The longer we keep ourselves tied to people who can’t bring value to our lives, the more damage we end up doing to ourselves in the long run. We have to understand that people who don’t care about us, don’t care about what they put us through. And while every relationship will have its own share of peaks and valleys to push through, our relationships should never leave us feeling inadequate or insignificant as a person. We have to raise the bar in terms of how we are being treated if we truly desire being in a better relationship.

Heart Broken

Morning Word
…..And then you get your heart broken. For the longest time you will find yourself trying to make sense of everything. You will try to pinpoint the day you and the other person started going in different directions. You will start over analyzing mistakes you have made wishing that you could get a few moments back. Maybe you didn’t say “I love you” enough. Maybe you didn’t give enough effort and attention to keep the other person happy. In hindsight, how you broke up doesn’t matter, but why you broke up does. Sometimes a good person will exit your life so that a greater person can enter. You have to understand that how you love may not necessarily fulfill someone else’s needs and vice versa. We all require different things from different people. What may quench your thirst, may not satisfy someone else’s hunger. You just have to find someone who can; love like you do, who can appreciate the things that you do and who can understand what love is like you do.

She Never Thought

Morning Word
She never thought that you would be the man to lower her guard. She never thought that you would be the man to pull things out of her that she has never felt before. Every since meeting you, she has found herself looking at the world in a new way. She has found herself feeling a lot more confident in the things that she can accomplish. It just made sense for her to let you inside emotionally because everything just felt right, but she would be lying if she told you that it didn’t scare her because her emotions and logic are hardly ever on the same page. You were ushered into her life as a beautiful blessing in the middle of her nightmares. And even though she loves her independence, she has found herself growing a lot more dependent on your positive energy and how you make her feel on the inside. You were the man she has been waiting for.

Harmony

Morning Word
If you are ready to be tested, you are ready to be happy. One of the beautiful things about being in a great relationship is when you both never let outside influences disturb the harmony you both have with each other. Some people will try to be overly intrusive and not respect the boundaries you have set in place to maintain privacy with you and your mate. Some people will try to test your faithfulness with your partner with different forms of temptation hoping that you take the bait. Some people will whisper unwarranted opinions to you about your relationship with one goal in mind, to stir up confusion. However, when you and your partner can both effectively deflect everything that everyone will throw at you and both keep your relationship flowing in a certain rhythm, you both will always be in a great space. Never let people on the outside mess up the harmony you both have established on the inside.

You Never Hear…

Morning Word
You always hear about the guys who don’t do what they are supposed to do when they are in a relationship, but you never hear one word about the guys who actually do. You never hear about the guys who still open car doors and give their lady around the clock gentlemen treatment. You never hear about the guys who stay up all night wiping their lady tears and getting a handle on her fears. You never hear about the guys who still cater to putting a smile on their lady face. You never hear about the guys who still remember the small details their lady shared with them over the phone before they both fell in love. You never hear about the guys who help get things ready the night before their lady has surgery. You never hear about the guys who still play with their children and chase after them making weird monster noises. You never hear about the guys who still make it to their son’s little league game Saturday morning after working overtime all week at work. You never hear about the guys who still make everyone of their daughter’s swimming competitions. I guess what I’m trying to say is, you never hear about the guys who step up and be everything and more that love requires them to be because good men hardly get recognized anymore.

Men Ready For Love

Morning Word
How Men Ready For Love Feel…
“I just want to be the kind of man that you can always depend on. I won’t try to solve all of your problems but, I’ll never let you face everything on your own. When you cry, I want to be the one who brings your smile back. When you vent, I want to be the one who listens to understand. When you have doubts, I want to be the one who speaks to your confidence. When you focus on your flaws, I want to be the one who reminds you why you are truly amazing. I want to provide you with more in whatever areas you lack the most. I want you to know with certainty that you have a dependable man who is willing to go to the moon and back just to bring you the stars. If you hit rock bottom, I want to be the rock you can lean on for support. I just want you to know that I always got you.” IG@woodtheinspiration
