10 Things To Fall In Love With Besides A Boy

Love is defined as a feeling of intense, deep affection for someone or something. However, the most important part of that definition is the word something. You don't need to put all of your love and affection into any one person, but instead any one thing. When you feel like you are simply chasing love, take a look at these ten wonderful things to fall in love with.

1. God.

To better your relationship with Him is to better your relationship with everything. Reaffirm your love for God instead of looking for love elsewhere. He will lead you to your Mr. Right when the time is just that: right.

2. Wildflowers.

Have you ever been driving down the highway and noticed how beautiful the flowers growing in the field right off of the 60 mph road are? The way they gently bend at the stalk and flow with the breeze is mesmerizing. Try staring at the flowers and not at your phone waiting for that text back.

3. Sunshine.

There is not a single feeling better than the beaming sunshine gleaming down on, and caressing, your skin. You don't need a man's touch to feel warm and fuzzy, just walk outside.

4. Charity.

Put your feelings of desire and love to good use and volunteer at a local animal shelter, or rehab center. Give back to the community instead of trying to give your love to someone else.

5. Chicken nuggets.

Why love a guy when you could love the crispy, golden, fried goodness of a chicken nugget?

6. The smell of coffee.

The aroma of French roast coffee wafting through the air is better than the smell of any and every guy to have ever walked this Earth.

7. Dogs.

I'm not talking about your ex that you once called a dog. I am talking about a four-pawed-fur-having-stick-fetching animal. Dogs are the most loyal and loving creatures ever. So, love them.

8. Adventure.

Whether it's hiking up a mountain to hang your Eno, climbing the dunes in the Outer Banks, or simply just taking a drive to wherever you end up. Fall in love with the risk and adrenaline of adventure because you'll never end up disappointed.

9. The sound of rain on a tin roof.

The soft ting-ting-ting-ting of rain hitting a tin roof is way more relaxing than trying to fall in love a guy. I'm just saying.

10. Yourself.

You are the one who is going to be with you from the day you take your first breath until the day you take your last. Why not fall in love with the person who knows literally everything about you. Your likes and your dislikes, your allergies and what makes you sick, your strenghts and your weaknesses. You are the only one that truly knows you. So, just fall in love with you.

I don't mean to sound bitter or as if I am an advocate for all things single. However, there is no rush in trying to find the right one for you. Don't rush your love, but when the time is right, fall in it.

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
