Marriage is based off of more than just love.  You have to have trust.  If trust is one of the issues you are struggling with, here is what you can do to remedy the situation in all areas of your life.

The old saying, “All men cheat” is not true.  Believe it or not, there are still some decent men out there that are honest.  You must not compare your relationship with that of other family members. When a relative loads their woes on you about reasons why men can’t be trusted, you have to take it with a grain of salt.  Your relationship is not their relationship; not only that, just because it didn’t work for them does not mean it will not work for you.  In essence, you listen to what they have to say while drawing on your own sense of accountability.

Friends are more opinionated.  They will tell you what they would do if they were in your situation, but guess what; they are not in your situation. Advice given doesn’t always have to be taken.

It’s very simple, if you don’t trust, you don’t have much of a marriage because you are constantly wondering where he is when he’s not home on time or didn’t text you back.  If you truly want to drive your man away, keep calling him, keep asking him where he’s been, and keep accusing him of cheating.

This happened to me, constant worries and concerns.  It all stopped when these words were mentioned by him, “Since you are accusing me of cheating, I might as well do it.”

Trust is a five letter word that takes years to build in a relationship.  The question is; will he still be around to wait for you to build it?

Are You a Dreamer or a Doer

December 2, 2012

Today has been one of those days where I think back on how would my life be if I had done things a little differently; especially when it comes to my career.  I am undecided on pretty much every aspect of my life at times.  I am a Cardinal Air Sign which I took to mean, ‘My mind is constantly changing (indecisive).’  Normally, I don’t particularly view zodiac signs, but somehow, I knew something was confusing to me in a sense that I am drawn to a career in which I can fully spread my wings.  I actually enjoy being my own boss and did not realize that until I read my zodiac sign.  It does me no good to be cooped up in a cubicle and feeling like I am not contributing in way, shape, or form.

Do you ever feel as if you are in a box and you can’t get out of it?  You have tried all sorts of things, but failed miserably at it.  The whole time this is happening to me, I am always thinking, “What am I good at?  What gifts did God give me?”

My problem has always been knowing what I want, but afraid to take a chance.  Yep, I’m a dreamer.  How am I ever going to know if I am good at something if I don’t at least try.  Life is too short and I am not getting any younger.  It is about time I go for what I want.  I thank God everyday for the jobs I have had and the one I have currently, but something is missing.  I need to spread my wings and be who God intended me to be and stop trying to be something I am clearly not.

I have turned career choices down simply because I was afraid to take an exam or afraid to fly.  I am stopping myself from succeeding.  I am getting in the way of myself.

Have you ever wanted to go for something and was afraid of what people will say or that you may fail at it?

Isn’t it written in the Bible that God will guide us along the best pathway of our life; He will neither leave us nor forsake us..so why am I feeling like I don’t have a chance?

It is like I said, I am getting in the way of myself and I have no one else to blame but myself.  You too can make a difference; just spread your wings, get outside of the box and live.  Be and do what God intended you to be and do.  Do not get in the way of yourself.  Go ahead, I dare you to be bold.

If you can Dream it, you can Do it!

Trust

November 3, 2012

Trust is an issue that can and have ruined marriages, friendships, and relationships with family.  I had a difficult time with trusting people.  I think it was because while growing up, within my environment, there was always an issue with trust.  He cheated on her, she cheated on him…to be honest, that was all I saw….mistrust…among family and friends.

Trust is something that if you don’t have, will take its toll on your relationship (s) in a huge way.  I honestly think my lack of trust was because I did not have confidence in myself.  I was insecure and didn’t think I had what it took to make it in this world.  I was so full of doubt and stayed bitter all the time, because I trusted not one person.  I would always compare myself to other women and wonder am I pretty enough, am I thin enough…you get the picture.

In Proverbs (KJV) 3:5-6 Reads the following:

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart, and lean not in unto thine own understanding. In all thy way acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Whenever we doubt ourselves and think no one loves us, GOD does.  You can turn your mistrust into trusting by simply saying these words:

  1. I am a child of God’s
  2. I trust Him
  3. I am beautiful/handsome
  4. I am special
  5. I believe in myself
  6. I have confidence
  7. I am loved
  8. I am needed
  9. I can do all things in Christ which strengthens me
  10. I love “me”

Constantly speak something positive about yourself on a daily basis.  And, to that person  you are comparing yourself to, give him/her a compliment.  Trust me, it will make you feel a whole lot better about yourself
