Not just Anyone-Part deux


I’ve turned a corner.

For the first time in my life, I’ve learned more about my self that I’ve ever cared to know.  But in particular, I know that I’m no longer satisfied with sharing my life with just anyone.

[Note: This is no “dis” to my ex’s.  I’m acknowledging a few observances within my own life.  Are we cool?  Good.] 

I have written down, “Never settle for less than God’s best!”  Settling in my life is something I unconsciously chose to do, because the way I saw myself left more to be desired.  For all intents and purposes, let’s call this low self-esteem.  Because I didn’t know my worth, I was treated less than I’m worth.  Can you dig it?

My father said this to me on Father’s Day, “Son, you will meet a woman who will treat you like a prince.  When you do, you make sure you treat her like a princess.”  Gotcha, Pop.  I totally get what he’s saying.  The key is that there is a mutual, genuine appreciation for one another.  I won’t need to “put on” and this & that to gain her attention.  She’ll recognize and appreciate me for who I am (as I will her).

I would dare to say that we all want to be appreciated in all our relationships (family, platonic, or otherwise); And if we are not appreciated, the right is yours to leave.

I love her already....

I love her already….

And with that, I leave you with a snapshot of my prayer list.  You’ll know who it’s for when you read it.  Remember: Settle not for just anyone; Settle for THE ONE.

Until next time.

Love and Peace.
