Let go of the guilt. We grow and learn everyday; things we once did in the past we would most likely never do again. Youthful indiscretions are just that; ill advised decisions made by a person in his or her youth. Don’t allow others to dredge up the past to make you feel fault for what happens today. The lessons we take from our past are of importance. Learn from it without being made to relive it.
Ladies, men beware. Lazy, abusive mates lacking dreams and ambition usually gravitate towards people with traits that allow them to easily become someone’s willing victim. If your mate’s character holds these negative attributes, please save yourself the pain and move on. Our love lives are too short.
Forks in the road offer opportunities for change, reasons to step out on faith, courage to take on the unknown. We all face forks but usually we play it safe, traveling the path of least resistance. Climb that mountain, rule that rugged terrain. With great risk comes great reward. Accept the challenge and reach the greatness you are destined for. Cast fear aside, take the road to glory!
Oh the unconditional loving nature of the cheerful caregiver. So appreciative should we be for the one who sees us at our worst and wants nothing more than to help us to get back to feeling our best. They are not disgusted or even put off by our illness; they’re focused on comforting us until we’re cured. Our suffering is minimized just by their presence and healing touch, head stroked temperature taken. Remember these moments when your cheerful caregiver is down; be cheerful in giving them the care they deserve.
Oh how you do the things you do. Be thankful for that thoughtful, ultra giving lover. Don’t they sometimes shame you with their benevolence? You do well but your efforts always seem to pale in compression to theirs. A higher love is what they offer bringing you to your knees in prayer. Matching their love and giving is a lofty goal and problem we’d all love to have. Daily praise and thanks to God for my love blessing.
From boys to men. When I was a child I did childish things but when I became a man… Men, are we fulfilling our roles as fathers, husbands and providers? As a whole we’re failing and our slack is being picked up by the other gender. The king of our castle we still want to be, but we resist sacrificing for our families and leading by example. Being the man is more than just a title, it’s our responsibility.
It’s not easy being a man. Being a father, provider and leader of a family is a daunting task when not properly educated or fairly compensated for your works. Humility is sometimes your greatest virtue in holding on to your sanity in a world set up for your failure. Thank you Mama for all that you do but please have compassion for Daddy and the struggles he endures. He is your ally not adversary.
