Tell Yourself

Morning Word
Tell Yourself, “I may not have it all together but, I can still be someone else’s glue when they are falling apart. No longer will I look for permanent things in temporary people. No longer will I lose myself in another relationship with someone too busy finding another reason to leave me. I know who I am and what my love can do. I can still be someone else’s ideal husband or wife. I know that love isn’t hard, it was just harder with the wrong people in my life. I will be more patient with my heart the next time love comes around. I will never punish a new love interest for what a past love did to me. Not only will I love wiser but, I will love better because I won’t allow my heartbreaks to filter my love anymore. Happiness is still out here for me and once I find it, I will do what I can to cherish it and hold onto it forever.”

Someone Better Coming

Morning Word
Sometimes you get tired of being the one who makes someone better for the next person. Sometimes you just get tired of people coming into your life and not sewing positive things into you the same way that you do with them. Sometimes it feels like the harder you love, the easier it is for them to leave. You could spend years giving someone the very best parts of you and when the relationship ends, you’ll feel like you have nothing to show for it. You’ll feel like even though you two aren’t together anymore, they still came out winning on the other side. One of the hardest things to watch is another person reaping all of the benefits from the time and energy that you invested with the last person you were with. But that’s ok though. Sometimes you have to wish people the best even when they left you feeling the worse. Don’t block your blessings holding on to bitterness and anger because a certain relationship didn’t work out. The only reason why that particular relationship ended was because life had to remove them to bring you someone even better. Life has a way of making room for us to receive greater things right when we least expect them.

Making Them Better For Someone Else

Morning Word
Unfortunately, love doesn’t always give you the happy ending you want in the end. Sometimes you can be madly in love with someone and still know in your heart that, that person can never give you the kind of love and effort that you know you deserve. One of the hardest things to accept in life is knowing that sometimes you were only meant to make the other person better for the next person. When some people don’t appreciate having a good person in their corner, sometimes that ended relationship is like a wake up call for them to get their act together for the next person. It doesn’t mean that something was necessarily wrong with you, it just means that they really didn’t have the tools to help maintain a healthy happy relationship with you like you wanted. Sometimes that is the only reason why you cross paths with certain people. You were never meant to be together, you were just meant to make them better for the next person. I know it’s a hard pill to swallow but at least room was made in your life so the next person could love you like you deserve to be loved.

Positive Relationships

Morning Word
You can’t grow positive relationships with other people in negative soil. If you really want to improve the other relationships in your life, start attending to your own garden more. The better you feel about yourself, the better you will interact with other people. The better you feel about yourself, the more patience you will exercise as you wait on the right kind of love to enter your life. If we spent just as much time looking for love on the inside as much as we do looking for it on the outside, we would all be healthier individuals to love. We would argue less and communicate more. We would listen to understand someone else’s perspectives even if we don’t necessarily agree with them eye to eye. We wouldn’t be so fast to cut people out of our lives who only wanted the best for us. Our garden determines how the other relationships in our lives will blossom. If you really want the best for other people, the very first step is giving them the best version of yourself.

Falling In Love

Morning Word
It’s ok to fall in love again. It’s ok to move on from the past and the person that hurt you. Don’t block your happiness because you can’t let go of the pain. Sometimes we can be so hung up on a situation that didn’t work out that we can end up missing out on a potential blessing. Heal before you deal and then allow yourself to feel something real again. Give someone else the benefit of the doubt. Everyone is not out to break your heart. Everyone is not out to play you for a fool to see what they can get out of you. Learn from all you have been through, grow wise and then patiently open yourself back up to the idea of being in love again.

Waking Up

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.

Forgiveness

Morning Word
The day you decide to let go of anger, life will begin to get a lot more easier. The day you decide to embrace forgiveness and really let the past remain the past, your life will truly start heading in a more positive direction. Forgiveness will reward you and bless you in ways that you never thought possible. See when you don’t forgive, you put up barriers between you and your blessings. You block your own path to having who you need and what you need out of life. Your heart has to be free of tension, resentment, bitterness and anything else that will poison your mood in a negative way. Forgive yourself and forgive other people. We only get one shot at trying to live this life the best way that we know how. Don’t block your blessings because you can’t let things go.

A Good Person

Morning Word
Sometimes you just have to wait for a good person to be planted in your life. Everyone won’t get the opportunity to cross paths with someone special tomorrow. Sometimes it can be a struggle to wait and never know when. Sometimes before you get to experience the easiest relationship that you will ever have, the hardest part will be waiting before you actually have it. When someone is planted in your life, they are brought into it for a positive reason. When someone is planted in your life, it means that they will have a deeply rooted bond with you that isn’t going anywhere. It means that they will be there for you not just when the sun is out but when it rains as well. It means that they will grow with you and be a source of encouragement in your corner. Sometimes the best relationships are the ones that you have been praying a very long time to have one day.

Dating

Morning Word
I’ve heard it said once that, “you date at the level of your self esteem.” So many people continue to stay in destructive relationships with other people because they don’t think they deserve better. They feel like the current person they are with is the best that they can find when it comes to love. If you are going to share your time, at least share it with someone who is worth it. If you are going to share your heart, at least let it be with someone who genuinely has your best interest in mind. You should not be pouring all of yourself into empty people. You should not be allowing yourself to endure unnecessary pain because of your own personal self esteem issues. Just because you have someone, it doesn’t mean that you have someone worth having. If you don’t feel good about yourself, how can someone else feel good about loving you? You love better when you feel better. And when you feel better, you will find yourself choosing a much more appropriate mate.

Letting Things 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..
