Someone Special

Morning Word
There is nothing more beautiful than waking up and knowing that you finally have who you need for the rest of your life. The peace that comes to your heart sometimes can’t even be described. You’ve been through so many things in the past with other people putting you through storms that, it’s nice to finally have someone who can love you and hold your hand while you both walk through them now. It’s nice to finally have someone that gives you the friendship inside of a relationship. It’s nice to finally have someone who can finish off your sentences or make you laugh when you aren’t feeling your best. It’s nice to finally have not just your partner in love, but your partner in life. Someone you can consult with when you need to make difficult decisions. Someone you can turn to when life isn’t going so well. When you have someone who is willing to walk with you through both the good and the bad without leaving you, that’s when you know you have a special one. There is nothing like having this person in your life.

Love

Morning Word
I believe one of the ultimate goals when it comes to love should be to be with someone who makes your life easier. Be with someone who makes you laugh when you don’t want to. Be with someone who can bring you sunlight during your darkest moments. Be with someone who can provide you with a certain kind of shelter and support when everyone else tries to rain on your parade. To me, when you have someone who truly makes your life easier and can alleviate some of your headaches, you truly do have someone special. Being in love with someone who wants to provide you with peace of mind, is truly one of the greatest feelings that you can ever experience. No one wants to be in a relationship with someone they cant relate with. Your goal should be to be with someone who wants the same things out of life that you do. Someone who you can be on the same page with; mentally, emotionally, physically and last but not least spiritually. Your love for each other, should run parallel with each other. In other words, a relationship is easier when both people are heading in the same direction together.

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 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.

He Said

Morning Word
¬†And then he turned to her and said…
“I can’t do anything about your past but what I can do is something about your future. All I ask is that you genuinely give me a chance and not throw in the towel before we both get to experience something special. I’ve been hurt before too, so I can understand your reservations about hopping back out there and entertaining someone new all over again. I can’t promise you that we won’t have disagreements. I can’t promise you that I will be perfect but what I can promise you is effort. I can promise you a smile today while I work on your smile for tomorrow. I can promise you mental growth and great conversations. I can promise you a listening ear whenever you need one. I can promise you my undivided attention. I can promise you support and protection. When you are in my presence, I just want you to feel completely comfortable. I’m not in a hurry to rush you into giving me all of you. I’m patient enough to wait on the power of your love at its highest level without any restrictions.”

Be Smart

Morning Word
Follow your heart, but don’t forget to take your brain with you. Some of you have the biggest heart’s in the world, but you keep investing your time and your love into people who are not ready for a serious committed relationship. You can’t build a stable connection with an unstable person. You have to keep in mind that when red flags are raised, that is God’s way of trying to warn you. You have to be more patient with giving your heart away. You have to be more smarter with who you allow to have a special place in your life. If someone doesn’t have the potential to help you grow and make you a better person, should you really be pouring all of yourself into that person? If someone can’t be upfront and honest with you about normal things, can you really trust that person with your heart? You have to understand that you are a very special and unique person, and you just can’t share what makes you great, with someone who can’t appreciate greatness. IG@woodtheinspiration

The Best Gift

Morning Word
The best gift a man can give a woman is his time; his attention, his love, his protection, his trust and his support. I think when a woman knows that she truly has a man in her corner in a positive capacity, it is much easier for her to bring her guard down to love again. Most women don’t have the best track record when it comes to trusting men. Most women have been through their own share of abuse whether it be on a physical, emotional or verbal level. To be honest, sometimes a good man will scare a good woman because he’ll come off as too good to be true. She’ll look for his flaws first, before she can truly appreciate what makes him flawless in her eyes. When a woman meets a man who is ready to give her the love that she deserves, it will scare her at first; and then it will leave her feeling completely at peace.

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.

Best Friend

Morning Word
It’s worth it waiting on your best friend when it comes to love. I think that when you can be in love with your best friend, it really is a blessing. You are able to share things and connect with each other on deeper levels. You are able to tell them things without them passing judgement on you. You are able to be completely vulnerable with them because you know that your best friend is there for the long haul. Having a best friend inside of your relationship is the best love that you can have. Through thick and thin, you know that their love is not going anywhere. On your bad days when you are difficult to deal with, you know that their love is not going anywhere. When storms present themselves in your life, they shelter you and try to protect you because their love is not going anywhere. You really can’t put a price on being in love with someone who brings out the best in you. You really can’t put a price on having someone you can always count on. It really doesn’t get any better than being in love with your best friend. IG@woodtheinspiration

Life Partner

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.

Good Guys

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.
