Its hard to hold on to something that you know would never be yours in any way you think of. You just have to learn to let go and face the fact that while good things never last, some don’t even start.

There are many times in life when we badly want something or someone that we will probably never have, whether the fault lie on us, another person, or the circumstances surrounding it. Sometimes letting go of something is a very hard thing to do, especially if we never really got a chance to do things the way we wanted, because we think the situation might be different if we had the opportunity to try.

We just have to accept life for what it is, things do not and will not always happen the way we want them to, and chances are there are greater opportunities for us in our future. It is easy to miss out on new opportunities if we are still letting something or someone hold us back that we may have hoped to have a chance with but never got. Cut your losses knowing that if a situation or relationship didn’t happen like you wanted it to there is always something better out there for you.

I could conquer the world with just one hand… as long as you were holding the other.

In order for a relationship to be excessively great it is important to find someone that gives you the confidence and support to succeed in life. If you are in a relationship that holds your hand and feel as if they are pulling you backwards instead of making you feel as though you may be able to conquer the world, then you may need to re-examine the relationship that you are in.
When a person is good for you there will be negative moments between the two of you, but for the most part the interactions between the two of you will be positive and the feelings and positivism you gain from your significant other will only help to further your journey to accomplish your dreams and aspirations. When you have someone who makes you feel like with them behind you, you may accomplish anything, hold on to this person, and make sure that you make them feel the same way. Never try to limit someone else’s dreams in the chase of your own.

If perfect is what you’re searching for… then just stay the same.

Right now, go take a look in the mirror and tell yourself that you are beautiful, three times, aloud. If we listen to the world we live in today’s subjective point of view on what beauty is, we would never realize our true beauty on the inside and out. If you are completely caught up with your beauty on the outside make it a point to look in the mirror every day, telling yourself a reason why you are beautiful even when it may be what you consider a flaw.
Say for example, you may think your eyes are too small, or too beady. Tell yourself how beautiful your eyes are. The most important beauty a person has is the person that they actually are on the inside. We must know who we are, and act in life only as our true selves, doing this will ensure that we are as perfect as humanly possible.

God wants us to live like the grass. Even if it’s stepped on, crushed, burned and cut; it always persists and grows back even greener and stronger.

In our lives sometimes we fall short of overcoming challenges. Losing a battle in life is a hard circumstance to stomach, especially if a lot of hard work and care is what you put into something. There are a few things to remember about getting back up, and being persistent, one is that all your hard work from before will really go to waste if you just quit trying all together. Second of all, you don’t want to be remembered as or remember yourself as a quitter, and wonder for the rest of your life on what could have been. More than likely what you need to accomplish is something that someone else has accomplished so it’s not impossible to do. Even if your feat has never been accomplished, that is all the more reason to try again, and try even harder to do something and be remembered for doing it.

In order to get back up and stay persistent you have to stay inspired. Let things like making yourself, your family and close friends proud, accomplishing a feat that no one has ever accomplished, or being an inspiration to people that you might not even know reasons why you get back up again, dust yourself off, and keep running towards your dreams.

Every girl has three guys in her life: the one she loves, the one she hates, and the one she can’t live without. But in the end, they’re all the same guy.

Trying to understand love is like trying to understand life as we know it, and is something that we will probably never truly all the way understand. What I have learned from my own personal relationships and from my elders who have been married or with the same person for at least ten years is that even though you may love your significant other, there are going to be differences in opinion, and arguments sometimes, there are going to be places you want to go that they might not want to and vice-versa, but at the end of the day there should be no one else you would rather be in bed with than your significant other.
Finding a love like this is all about finding a balance between two people. To find someone like this they must share or be devoted to seeing you accomplish your dreams, they should be someone you can confide in and be able to tell anything to, and they should be someone willing to overcome any obstacle in your life while you should also be willing to do the same.


Don’t give up on love because there is always someone who loves you. Even if it’s not the person you were hoping for.

Ever heard the saying when life hands you lemons, make lemonade? When we go through things in life including failed relationships, we tend to gravitate on giving up on finding a love that will work for us, instead of learning from that past experience to be able to better choose our next relationship. Life is all about keeping a positive outlook, no matter what may happen, in hope for the future, instead of in angst for the past. If we just for one moment give up on love, we may miss someone who may have truly been meant for us.

When we leave our hearts open for love it is important to not forget about the past. We must definitely take time to grieve and get past our last love before starting a new one. We must also put ourselves first for a while, fall in love with yourself again, because the pain from past relationships can easily take a toll on one emotionally physically and spiritually. When you are ready for love again you will know, just remember to find a person for you that you will really be able to love for the right reasons, and a person that will really love you for the same.

Be your own kind of beautiful.

 Being our own kind of beautiful consists of being who we are from the inside first, and then translating that onto the outside of our bodies secondly. Being your own kind of beautiful requires you to develop your inner you. Do you know what you like? How heavy of an influence is everyone else on your life and style? These are two important questions that you can help you determine if you are trying to live under someone else’s definition of beautiful instead of your own. 
In order to be our own kind of beautiful we must do things regardless of how they will make us be perceived by our peers and society around us. Being our own kind of beautiful is living life the way that you know you should live it, without any worry of who will still be around when you do. Simply put, being your own kind of beautiful is being yourself daily! 


“It is better for a girl to sleep a hundred years and be kissed and awakened by the right prince than to stay awake and be kissed a hundred times by the wrong frog”.

Choosing the right person for you isn’t just about the way a person looks physically, but it is about their mental and spiritual characteristics as well, if not more. People tend to jump into a relationship too fast just because a person may look a certain way, or because a person may be financially stable, and learn quickly that this person may not necessarily be the right person for them. Choosing the right person is nowhere near an easy task to accomplish but it can be done.

In order to make sure the person you are with is the right person for you makes sure that first of all the person is on the same level as you spiritually. A spiritual connection is one of the deepest bonds you may share with someone and without it; it may be very difficult to overcome hard times together. Also make sure that the person you are with is happy with who you are, and isn’t trying to change you. If the person you are with is trying to turn you into someone else, then in most cases they just need to be with someone else more in tune with their desires. Also look for someone who is going to stay by your side no matter what, a person that doesn’t have your back in minor situations probably won’t in major situations.

Philemon 1:10-18

Paul wrote his shortest epistle near the end of his first imprisonment in Rome. He was probably about 63 years old when he wrote this letter to his friend Philemon, a fellow laborer for the Lord and the owner of a servant named Onesimus. Onesimus had robbed Philemon and then fled to Rome, where he met Paul and became a believer of Christ. Paul sent Onesimus back to Philemon with this epistle, which contains Paul’s request to Philemon that he accept Onesimus, not only as a servant, but as a “brother beloved” (1:16).

Paul places Philemon’s love for him front and center, asking Philemon to receive Onesimus as if he were receiving Paul himself (verse 17). In this letter, Paul is giving us a practical example of the substitutionary work of Christ, as he does no better in any other writing.

First, he lists…
