No Matter What You Are Going Through Have Faith

In life, no matter what you are going through, have faith, and believe your sorrows won’t last forever because what time does not heal God will. 
The difficult times that we all face in life are never easy. In life we must accept the fact that there are going to be disappointments, but we must also never shy away from that fact that if we continue to hope that we can get through anything we put our minds to. 

In life we have to be willing to get back up after we have been pushed down, but we must also make efforts to step forward after we have gotten up. We must all remember that life will continue to go on with or without us, and if we want to do the things that we dream of, and the things that we desire in our hearts, we must be willing to fight through the pain. In order to be prosperous we have to go through life’s difficulties and challenges, but we must also remember that there is no overcoming adversity in our lives without being able to be strengthened again by hope.

Loving Someone Unconditionally

Unconditional love is when someone hurts you making you angry, but because you care about that person so much you choose not to hurt them in return. 
Sometimes when we love, we love so hard that no matter what happens, no matter how much we have been angered, the last thing that we want to do is to hurt the person that we love. Love does many strange things to us that we normally wouldn’t even consider doing. For example, us being unwilling to lash at someone who has hurt us is an approach that many just are not willing to take when they dont love someone. 

When we are in true love we become vulnerable, in a good way, we become the people that we should normally be anyway. Learning how to treat someone that we love should transfer over into our daily lives as well. Treat every single person you encounter including your enemies and your friends with love. Make an effort to make others feel good about being alive, and your self worth will soon multiply exponentially.

Do What Makes You Happy

Do what makes you happy, be with who makes you smile, laugh as much as you breathe, and love as long as you live. 
In an effort to do what makes us the most happy we have to be brave enough to do what our hearts tell us to do. There will be people around us, and some may even call their selves our friends, but we must be able to understand that those who are our true friends, are those who offer us encouragement to follow our hearts, and not their own will. 

Do what makes YOU happy. Choose to spend time with the people who help to uplift you and brighten your spirits. Choose to smile as much as you possibly can, and try to laugh as much as possible. Choose to go for the things in your life that will bring you happiness, the things that help push you, and the things that give you drive. 

Do what makes YOU happy, because at the end of your life, you don’t want to be regretful for not living your life as much as you possibly could have.

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Let your faith be bigger than your fear! 
When we let our faith be bigger than our fears we are able to take advantage of the doors that are open for us in our lives to the fullest extent. In an attempt to live our best lives, we must be willing to let our faith be bigger than our fears. Using your faith requires that you have enough courage to resist your fear. Though there are some who fear affects less than others, fear is something that will probably never be absent in us whenever we seek to conquer the unknown. 

When we face big obstacles in our lives we have to make a decision to emphatically believe that we desire what we seek way more than we fear it. So we must keep the mindset that we must focus on our faith in our journey to achieving our dreams, because if we focus on our fears we will never accomplish anything.

True Friendship Isn’t Being Inseparable

Friendship isn’t about being inseparable, but about being separated and knowing nothing will change.
Everybody will go through life with a different take on friends than others, for some friendships will begin simply, while others may begin more aggressively and may become simple over time. What all true friendships have in common is that when two people commit to being true friends, they care about each more than they ever have before.

Some may have many friends, while some may only have a few or no friends. While it isn’t important to have a huge set of friends around you, it is necessary to at least have one person to be able to confide in, a person to lean on, a person to get advice from, and encouragement in times of great discouragement.

We should all make an effort to show our true friends in life just how grateful that we are for them by showing them that we will always be there for them. Don’t just call on your friends when you need them, show and tell your friends how much you care in even the most upbeat of times.

Live Without Pretending

Live without pretending, love without depending, listen without defending, speak without offending.


Live without pretending… Live a life full of being yourself, and yourself only. Life is way too short to try and live as someone else. Make the decisions that best represent you, and who you really are at your heart’s deepest levels, never succumb to the pressures of society and the people around you in regards to making decisions that aren’t representative of decisions that you want to make.

Love without depending… Make sure the relationships that you enter into help build both you and the other person involved. If a relationship is unequally yoked one person will always get the short end of the stick while the other may be getting more than they deserve.

Listen without defending… There will come times in everyone’s life that they are offered criticisms that will help them to build. This is the kind of criticism we have to be able to hear and listen to so that we may possibly reach our potential.

Speak without offending. Make great efforts not to offend, and keep in mind if you have nothing constructive to say to help a person, maybe it is something that just shouldn’t be said at all.

8 Things Guys Secretly Love

James Michael Sama

Whether a guy is just starting to date a woman or is in a committed relationship with her, there are small things that she may do without thinking twice that guys secretly love.

While there are many, here are eight to start.


Laying your head on his chest.

When laying on the couch watching TV or laying in bed after a long day, it’s one of the best feelings when a woman lays her head down on your chest and puts her arm over you.

As men, we enjoy feeling as though we are being protective, and this signifies that she feels safe in our arms.

When you text him first.

There is a lot of pressure on guys to always initiate conversation. Sometimes he may not know if he’s being too pushy or texting too much – he might overthink it and not text you at all, which could…

James Michael Sama

That being said, what are some things that you may not realize make as big of an impact as they do?

Good morning texts.

A good morning text first thing doesn’t just say “good morning” – it says “you’re the first person I thought of when I woke up today.”

For over a year I have sent one of these to my girlfriend literally every single day without missing one. Small romantic acts aren’t just for the “honeymoon phase” of your relationship. Consistency is key.

Hint: This includes goodnight texts, too.

Play with her hair if you’re laying together on the couch or in bed.

Just do it. Trust…

There Is No Rainbow Without Rain

Everyone wants a life without pain, but there is no rainbow without rain.

If there are never any storms in your life, then you must realize that you will never be able to appreciate the best that life has to offer in turn. There are times in our lives when we are forced to face the bad. We must learn not only how to cope with being in a storm, but we must learn how to thrive in the storms that we face in life.

If we are willing to stop our progress, and submit to being defeated, instead of learning what it takes to overcome, we will never be able to fully appreciate life and what it has to offer. This poses a threat to everything inside of us that makes us great. With a lack of anything to work hard for, we won’t, and with the lack of a need for diligence we will no longer have a dream to work towards.

Always remember that though there will be rain in your life, without the rain there wouldn’t be anything as beautiful as a rainbow.
