We cannot control everything around us, but we can control ourselves. If we can control ourselves, then we can control everything within us. Do not worry about things you cannot control. Worry about yourself, your future, what you are doing. Worry about how you are going to nurture your seeds. The seeds of happiness. The seeds of joy. The seeds of love. The seeds of life. The seeds of becoming. If you can take care of them, if you can nurture your imagination, your future will take care of itself.

To live well, you must nurture yourself. And your life will get easier, according to Tyler Perry,

When you:

“Nurture your imagination with hard work, positive energy, ease, and self- encouragement.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

If you do not encourage yourself, if you do not support yourself, no one is going to encourage you. If you want to suceed, be your own supporter.

“Life gets easier and happier when we let people be whoever they truly are. Stop expecting them to give you what they don’t have or don’t know how to give.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

What you cannot give yourself, do not expect it from other people.

“When you know your worth, when you know your value, your life changes and you change lives.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

When you know who you are, you know what you are worth. As a result, you do not settle for less than you are worth.

Make a holy commitment to your beautiful self that you will only water the seeds of love, kindness, and self-worth, and you’ll let feelings of unworthiness wither on the vine.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

Because love is life. Love is peace.

Because kindness is connection. Kindness is life.

Because self-worth is everything. Self-worth is you. Your self-worth is your life worth.

It is your inner life. It is your power. It is your inner energy.

If you do not have it, it is never to late to grow it.

If you are committed to it, you can grow it. You can develop it.

If you are willing to face yourself, you can grow your self-worth.

God’s Love

God’s love is unconditional. It is peaceful. If you are looking for love, real love, seek God’s love.

It is what you need when you are happy. God’s love is what you need when things are not going well. God’s love is what you need when your friends are gone.

Rely on God’s love. Do not worry about what your friends are saying about you. If you rely on God’s love, you have everything. You have life. You have yourself.

When things are down, when the road ahead is unknown, rely on God’s love. In his book Dwell on These Things: A Thirty-One- Day Challenge to Talk to Yourself Like God Talks to You, John Stange writes, “God’s love can be relied on when you’re in the middle of drama. God’s love can be relied on when your friends desert you. God’s love can be relied on when you’ve made major mistakes. God’s love can be relied on when you’re trying to bounce back from whatever’s got you down.”

Whatever you are going through, do not rely on people. They will disappoint you. They will desert you. They will live you where you are. But God will never live you alone. He believes in you. He just want you to trust yourself, to believe in yourself.

Do not worry about anything. Rely on God’s love. He will save you. He won’t run away from you. The question is, do you trust yourself?
