|If we grew apart as friends, there's a 100% chance that I'm cheering you on from afar and that I still love you.|
As I get older, I'm starting to understand that honesty is a small sacrifice.
There was a couple who truly wanted to live a healthier lifestyle and work on their spiritual growth with God. They started seeking local churches. In the meantime, they started praying together, reading the bible together and practicing to be more faithful to God. About a month or two later they told each other that they weren't feeling any change. They were happy and strongly in love with each other. But that they didn't feel like God was really with them. They both agreed that there were no major changes or blessings in their lives. So, they slowly went back to being themselves, not reading the Bible anymore, slowly stopped praying. Soon after, their world started to crumble, they started ...
As a child I always wanted to grow up so fast. But now I realize broken toys and lost pencils are better than broken hearts and lost friends.
I'm honestly not mad at anyone for anything they ever done to me. You showed me you...I need that.
To you one night stand lovers, I don't know what exactly it is that you value but I've found that:
Sex with no passion sucks. Kissing with no passion sucks. Conversations with no passion sucks. Career with no passion sucks. And life with no passion sucks... That's my truth.
Trust me, if you do it right... The people who didn't believe in you, will be telling everyone how they met you.
This life has brought me a lot of pain and a lot of sadness starting at an early age. But instead of playing victim, the Lord has made beauty of my past and has allowed me to conquer that couldn't be obtained.
I believe one of our biggest mistakes in life is that we think we actually have enough time.
"I said terrible things to my wife, when I'm not upset anymore and ready to talk, I tell her I'm sorry then"
"My son lost in the state finals, when I see him next weekend I will tell him how very I proud am of him"
As humans, tragedies are as prevalent as it is for animals. We never know when we're going to take our last breaths. So, never delay telling someone how important they are to you and how much you love them.
I'll trust a billionaire that becomes a politician before I'll trust a politician that becomes a billionaire.
I believe they want to obey the law. They just need the tools to do so. Everyone should have access to any kind of food, everyone should have comfortable housing. I'm not saying no one should work hard because I believe everyone should. You see, without these things, people tend to get desperate and make foolish decisions. These things should not be a privilege.
You make a great job, comfortable housing, healthy foods for your body nearly impossible to get. Which could cause some people have to starve or sacrifice their freedom. Trust me, when you have taken everything away from someone and someone or something push you into a place where you have nothing to lose... You've just pushed him in...
For those who seek wealth and fortune, I want to share something with you.
In this world, money is an excellent asset to have. It pays for your healthcare, for those beautiful flowers you surprised your partner with...it even pays for that really nice car that only a few people have.
Here's what they don't tell you, wealth is not the bridge to happiness. We can obtain all these things but at the end of it all, your really nice car is just a car.
It's never been about money but in fact, love is the key. You see, being the richest person in the cemetery has no value but going to bed every night knowing you made a difference in others lives holds true value. The Lord isn't impressed with yo...
I went through my darkest times alone. So... I'm sorry if I act like I don't need anyone.
There's a secret in marriage that most people aren't told. Let me tell you here for those who aren't aware.
For those who seek marriage, understand that your spouse will change so much throughout your marriage. He or she will fall in and out of love with you... Many times. You may be best friends but there will be times where you will the only person he / she doesn't want to be around. Your spouse is going to fail you and let you down more times then you can imagine. They may even become weak in the very areas where you would most want them to be strong.
You see, some people think marriage doesn't always come with sacrifices and strife.
There may be some people who reads this and say " w...
Ladies... Gentleman. I don't know who will be the next president or what your day will be like tomorrow but I do know one thing.
No matter who you are, I don't care if you're white, black or blue. You will fail at some point in your life... Many times, Plan on it, you will lose at some point. You will experience embarrassment, you will experience pain in your life that will make it hard for you to smile.
Here is the good news: Though failure is a heavy burden, you will also experience success. Take risk with knowing that failure comes with wisdom and that your reward is coming soon. A man who never takes risk is a man who never grows. Never let failure blind you from your blessings that ar...
A coach was teaching a kids how to box professionally. One on the kids was about to spar with another kid. Before the kid got in the ring, he asked his coach " you teaching me how to fight but you talk about peace, how do you reconcile the two?"
The coach responds " It's better to be a warrior in a garden than you be a gardener in a war. "
When you're feeling down or feeling lost in this world, don't know what next for you.
Prayer and positivity is the best medicine.
Beating yourself up, losing hope, are signs of letting your inner demons roar.... Be strong my friend.
People only see the success...
They never see the sacrifices.
No one understands the sacrifices or pain you went through to get to where you are.
It's acceptable for the world to not love you, it's acceptable for old friends to stop loving you.
But it's never acceptable for you to stop loving yourself. You're all you got in this world sweetheart. Loving yourself helps you see beauty in things that the world has turned ugly.
You wanna change your life, change the way you think, the way you see life... The way you see yourself. You'll always end up where you started if you still watering the same plants that caused you pain in the beginning.
I've made a promise that when life knocks us down and you're not strong enough to lift yourself up, I'll be there to carry your bags. And if loved ones break your heart and all you want to do is cry... then we'll cry together. Understand that you'll never have to do life alone anymore. We learn together, we grow together.
I wish there was a way to know you're in the good ol' days before you've actually left them.
With that being said... Don't waste your life. Don't get upset so easily. Don't love your possessions, put your love in people... We need it most.
One day a teacher wrote 10 math problems on the board. He got the first one wrong. The students started laughing. The teacher turns around and says " I know I got the first problem wrong, I did that on purpose. I want you to learn something about this world. You can see that I got 9 out of 10 answers correct but none of you recongized that; you all laughed because of the one thing I did wrong. "
Here's the lesson...
The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times but will criticize the one thing you did wrong. But let us not get discouraged, for we will rise above.
When the rich takes money from the poor, it's business. When the poor fights back, it's violence
We need to understand that the system isn't broken, it was designed this way.
In my darkness I remember momma saying " surrender to the Lord and he'll wipe your slate clean." Ohio how I wanna come near and give you the biggest hug and kiss, but there's blood on my hands and my lips aren't clean.
No matter how kind and loving you try to be with others, people can only meet you as deeply as they've met themselves.
Look what you've made me do, look what I've changed for you. To be Frank, I knew I overpaid my dues but I didn't think I was a slave to you. When I showed you my weakness you took advantage but I stuck to you like crazy glue. I asked the Lord to please prevent my heart from turning cold because without love in your heart, you lose half of your soul. And with him answering my prayers, he turned my heart to gold... giving me the power to love my enemies whole.
