Level Up

Hebrew 12:1 TLB
"Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back.. and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us."

"We live in a generation of not being in love and not being together. But we sure make it feel like we're together, because we're scared to see each other with somebody else," (Drake).

Man, Drake took the words right out my mouth. We live in a generation where 'talking' is the closest thing to being in a relationship, abuse is being misconstrued as love, and where home-wrecking is being praised. But despite ALL of that we choose to compromise, especially us women. 

I've noticed a lot of females typically compromise with a man's every need and forget to treat themselves. Ladies you need to realize that men were NOT created for you, you were created for men. They tend to your love and affection, so quit going around the ends of the Earth searching for one. Understand that men are hunters by nature let him chase and find you. Now I know that sounded so cliche but it's true. I will always tell my friends, "These boys ain't going anywhere, they will always be around." So before you even try to jump in head first into a relationship remember to first create your world before you let another into it. You want to build that level of independence and that foundation of self-love within you so that you when you do fall in love you don't become dependent for that very love you lack, in your partner. With that being said, never go into a relationship an emotionally damaged and needy person. Come into the relationship a well grounded, God-fearing, independent woman but leave just enough space for him to play his role as a man. Remember that if you genuinely respect and love yourself first, a man will reciprocate the same. 

Pssst.. Steve Harvey once said, "Let a man SEE what he can GET but IMAGINE what he can HAVE." 

The Perfect Guy 
Hate to break it to you, but there is no such thing as the perfect guy. Us women have the tendency to create this imaginary wishlist of the "perfect guy". Yes I understand that we all want a man that has something going on for himself, a great personality, executes chivalry and the list goes on. But why create this wishlist on who your dream guy should be if you're not that yourself. Become the person you would want your partner to be.

If you want yourself a Jay-Z as a man, you have to be a Beyonce and level up. 
Before Beyonce dated Jay-Z she was grinding trying to make her way to the top while Jay-Z was watching her from the distance. This tunnel vision Beyonce carried allowed her to be the evermore FOCUSED on her goals; that even the thought of having a man wasn't an option. She denied Jay many times before they got together. Point is, Beyonce created her world before she let Jay-Z into it. Be a Beyonce and worry about you, the rest will come in due time.
In close, if you position yourself on a pedestal like a Queen you will later find your King.
