Dating

Morning Word
The purpose of dating is to find someone you can spend the rest of your life with. That’s it. You don’t date to waste other people’s time. You don’t date to have someone feed your ego. You don’t date to temporarily fill a void emotionally or physically. You date to find that one person who you feel like you can spend the rest of your life with.

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. IG@woodtheinspiration

Someone Understanding

Morning Word
I think in the end we all just want someone who truly understands us. Someone who we can share a good joke with and hold deep private conversations with. Someone who we can trust our heart with. A person who we can tell secrets to without being looked at in a different light. Someone who we can have fun with. Someone who can be completely supportive of our dreams no matter how big they may seem. Love is about sharing a bond with each other. Love is about growing and evolving together. Love is about staying committed and supportive of each other through every storm, trial and tribulation. It’s looking at you with eyes of hope even when you feel hopeless some days. It’s rubbing your back and telling you everything will be ok. It’s about being the number one person in your corner that you can always turn to. IG@woodtheinspiration

Couples

Morning Word
Fellas, you have to genuinely pursue a great woman like she is the greatest thing you have ever laid eyes on. If she doesn’t feel like treasure in your presence, she will save herself for the man that does give her that feeling. If she doesn’t feel like a priority, she will wait as long as it takes for the man who won’t hesitate putting her number one in his life. However on the flip side, ladies you have to give a man of purpose something meaningful to pursue. Your attractiveness will satisfy his appetite but it won’t cure him of his hunger completely if you don’t have deeper qualities to bring to the table. Are you the kind of woman that can add value to a man’s life? Men fall hard for women who are genuinely supportive and very encouraging. At the end of the day, there is nothing like a supportive encouraging woman and a purpose driven man being in love together. That kind of couple can accomplish anything in the world together.

Hurt

Morning Word
I get it. Once you have been hurt, it gets harder opening yourself back up to love again. All you can think about is someone taking advantage of you all over again. For some of us, our fear overrides our faith because we have been hurt very badly. We can’t trust meeting people who have genuine intentions because the last person who sold us that dream, ended up becoming our nightmare. And since most of us have a hard time separating ourselves from the past, in hindsight all we are really doing is putting our life on pause. Somehow we’ve gotten to the point of cutting ourselves off from the rest of the world. Somehow we’ve allowed our past experiences to have more power than it really should when it comes to living our lives. We have to keep in mind that “one closed chapter” doesn’t necessarily mean “a closed journey”. And as crazy as this may sound, there is still someone out there who is praying to have a person like you one day. There is still someone out there who wants to know the story behind all of your scars. There is still someone out there who can’t wait to give you the love that you deserve one day. But in order for that to happen, you have to begin moving forward with your life, and stop living everyday you wake up on pause.

The Right One

Morning Word
The right one makes love feel easy. The right one doesn’t just make you a part of their day, they actually make your day. When you are down, they are there to lift you up. When you are sick, they are there to help bring you back to full health. When you need words of encouragement at the right time, they always know what to say to help get you over your fears. You really can’t put a price on having someone priceless in your life. You really can’t put a price on someone who truly wants to love you over and over again for the next 100 years. What a blessing it is to have someone in your life who will always be in your corner. What a joy it feels like to finally be able to have peace of mind with the one you are in love with. Being able to stand together as teammates in love through any and everything, truly is a blessing.

Speak Life

Morning Word
Ladies we love it when you speak life into us. We love it when you can speak encouraging words into us because it helps us grow into becoming greater men. Your words help plant seeds of greatest inside of your man. That is one of the reasons why the right woman in the right man’s life will always carry a special kind of significance. Her love can inspire the greatest things inside of him. He can become a lot more confident. He can become a lot more focused and driven towards his dreams. He can keep himself motivated with his goals for longer periods of time just behind the goodness of her love and her words. Ladies you have an unbelievable amount of influence in your man’s life. The more you speak into us, the greater we end up becoming.

Men

Morning Word
The reason he seems uninterested is because he just doesn’t want you like that. Let me tell you something about men, we go after what we want. We go after it with determination. The only men who don’t put in work like that are men who lack confidence or men who are not that interested. Ladies when you meet a man that is interested in you, he will consistently carve out a space for himself in your life. You won’t have to wonder when you’ll hear from him again. You won’t have to guess how he feels about you because he will communicate his emotions as best as he can. You won’t have to wonder if he wants to be with you exclusively because he will raise that subject and make it very clear that he wants you to be the woman that he needs in his life. He will take time planning out thoughtful dates and not just hit you up in the middle of the night just to chill. An interested man makes it his goal to build the strongest connection with you that he can, as well as shut down any and all competition. If a man is not pursuing you like that, he is just not that interested in you.

Opening Up

Morning Word
 I like to believe that expressing how much your Lady means to you, still means EVERYTHING to her. And with growing older I’ve come to realize that Women need that in two forms. Women need our words to generate the PROMISE, and our actions to carry through the CONVICTION of how important they really are. Because I can say I want to give you the world, but to actually carry it out means more. To see you smile when you didn’t have a reason to at one point in your life, is uplifting for the soul. So when it’s coming from me, when I tell you that your smile means everything, just know that I plan on showing you why.

Trust

Morning Word
I think at the end of the day, we should be in love with the person who we can trust our heart with the most. If I can trust you with my heart (the very thing that is keeping me alive), I can trust you with everything else. I can trust you with helping me with my recovery when my health starts to fail me. I can trust you with keeping me encouraged through some of the darkest times in my life. I can trust you to be the last person standing, when everyone else has already left my side. I can trust you with being the first person I go to when emergencies happen out of nowhere. Being able to trust you with my heart, allows me to trust you with the other area’s of my life worry-free. And when you have someone by your side who gives you a peace you never felt, a joy you never experienced and a love that you never imagined that you could have, you truly have found a great person to be in love with.
