Being Single

Morning Word
Being single with a good heart can still be a struggle at times. Sometimes it’s hard to wrap your mind around the fact that you still do not have someone special in your life at the moment. People who you thought were going to be good options, turned out to be no good for you at all. Then you have days when all you do is wake up to everyone else’s good news. People around you are all getting engaged now. You just found out that your best friend has a child on the way. And all while you have the grace to help celebrate everyone else’s special moments, you still can’t help but wonder when those same moments will begin to take place in your own life. Listen, we meet who we need not when we want to, but when we need to. Sometimes it’s just not your season to be in love with anyone yet. So continue growing wise and developing as a person because you never know how close you are to it being your season next.

Dating

Morning Word
The problem with dating today is everyone’s mentality. The minute we started putting sex before love, we started setting ourselves back. The minute we started putting “Netflix and Chill“ before “Courting and Build”, we started going in the wrong direction. Women are afraid of men only entertaining them for their bodies, and men are afraid of women emotionally using them to repair themseleves because of the damage the last few men did. We need to get back to a place where we start putting real face to face conversations before text messages. We need to stop hiding behind our poker faces and have a little more faith in being transparent with our emotions and what we desire out of the next person. We need to break this unhealthy habit of thinking that we cant trust letting people get to know us and vice versa. Let’s hold hands and take a walk and talk instead of always texting all the time. Let’s talk about the storms we have been through and pray that the person we are opening up to is someone strong enough to go through the weather with us. Let’s get back to trying to truly understand each other. IG@woodtheinspiration

A Man Ready For Love

Morning Word
A Man Ready For Love…
“Is waiting for a particular woman to enter his life. He is not interested in every woman that crosses his path. He doesn’t have time to waste dealing with women who he can’t seriously see himself being with for a long time. A man ready for love is looking for a woman who can help birth his visions and his dreams. A man ready for love is looking for a woman of substance who can bring value to his life. He’s looking for a woman who can be his peace and not his headache. He’s looking for a woman who is confident and sure about herself. He’s looking for a woman who he can seriously see himself raising a family with one day. He’s looking for a woman who he can connect with mentally and emotionally on a different level. He’s looking for a woman who carries herself with class and has intelligence. A man ready for love is waiting for a woman who is worth pursuing and being in love with.”

All You Can Do

Morning Word
All you can do is put your best foot forward when you are trying to love someone. You may not have complete control over the outcome, but at least you can hang your hat on the fact that you gave it your all and didn’t ride the fence like some people do. Most people don’t understand that being in love requires you to give someone the power to crush or cherish your heart all at the same time. The most beautiful flowers in the garden are the ones who never block their own sunlight. And just because it didn’t work out with one person, that doesn’t mean that the sun still won’t shine your way tomorrow. God will remove people from your life that you love even when you don’t understand why at the time. But there is a heart out there worth loving you with your name written on it. Just be patient, they are coming when you least expect it. IG@woodtheinspiration

His Presence

Morning Word
Something about his presence made her feel safe. Something about his energy gave her a certain kind of peace that she has never felt with any man before. He genuinely cared about her. He wanted to know things about her that no other man cared to know before. He wanted to know the secret behind her beautiful smile. He wanted to know about her long term dreams & goals and how he could be a part of helping her achieve them. He wanted to know what she has been through so he could understand her scars and love her on a deeper level. When he looked at her, all he saw was an amazing woman. He wanted to be the man that broke down all her barriers. He wanted to be the man that changed her perception of there being no good men left. He wanted to be the man that sparked her belief in love again. He wanted to be her center of peace, in the middle of her storm. IG@woodtheinspiration

Find Someone

Morning Word
It’s about having someone who is willing to walk through the hard times with you. It’s about having someone who sees all of the beauty inside of you that everyone else overlooked. The goal when it comes to love should never be about finding someone who is perfect. The goal should always be to find someone who is worth it. If you already know that you are not a finished product, why are you expecting someone else to be? Find someone who you can go through healthy progressions with without giving you a headache. Find someone who has a healthy heart. Someone who won’t allow their pains from the past to influence how they treat you. Someone family oriented building towards the future. Someone who isn’t afraid to dream too big. Someone you can have fun with but also enjoy peace and quiet with. Love is so beautiful when you know it makes sense to have a certain person in your life.

Someone To Grow With Again

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 who you can have stimulating conversations with. Someone who you can learn from and grow with when you are around them. Genuine hearts and genuine people like that are rare these days. IG@woodtheinspiration

Work It Out

Morning Word
Be the kind of couple that can still communicate with each other even when it’s very difficult. Learn to work through your differences and disagreements with each other by keeping one thing in mind, “no matter what happens, this person will always be my partner in love and in life”. So many of us want a relationship that is built for happiness, but don’t take time thinking about having a relationship that is built to overcome adversity too. If the love is worth it and the other person is special to you, work it out. Don’t prematurely give up on something great just because you encounter a few bad days. You should be with someone who even on your bad days, you still wouldn’t choose being with someone else.

One Day

Morning Word
One day someone will walk into your life and bring all of the beauty you never saw in yourself back to the surface again. It won’t seem forced. It won’t feel like a hidden agenda. You actually won’t even notice how easy your walls come down until after the fact. Special people have ways of reaching places inside of you that you normally wouldn’t allow people in to. They earn your trust. They make you feel safe. They give you a reassurance that they aren’t out to hurt you. And when bad times do arise, they will end up being the first person to wipe your tears or the last person standing to help you fight your fears. One day a person like this will definitely walk into your life and make you feel like being in love is actually pretty easy. And “easy love” is just the best love that you can have.

Wait On

Morning Word
So many people settle for being someone else’s side person when there is someone else out there waiting to make them the only one. Don’t let impatience drive you into the arms of someone who is not committed to loving you the right way. There is nothing wrong with waiting on a good thing. There is nothing wrong with being single for a few years as you wait on someone worth getting to know. Wait on someone who is committed to your growth. Wait on someone who can love you with an honest heart and a clear mind. Wait on someone who can consciously love on the same level like you can. Wait on the person that makes you smile every morning, and not the person who has you wondering when your next smile is coming. See when someone loves you and is crazy about you; they speak with love, they care with love, they act with love and they help you grow as a person with love.
