If You Love Someone, Tell Them, Because Life Is Too Short To Take Your Time

The time is now.

If You Love Someone, Tell Them, Because Life Is Too Short To Take Your Time

The tragic death of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant hit America, and the world, like a baseball bat to the face earlier this week as the news broke of his helicopter crashing resulting in the death of nine people, including Bryant's 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.

The whole world instantly started mourning the loss, and all at once it was very shockingly apparent just how short and unpredictable this life is.

It instantly made me realize how, at any given moment, everything can change or be taken away from us. When you realize that, it suddenly becomes very apparent to you that this life is not for certain. Tomorrow could never come, and as cliche as it sounds, you really should live life as if every day could be your last because one day you will be right.

There is a certain sense of urgency that comes with this thought. When it all boils down to it, it's only about who you love and how deeply you love them.

At the end of the day, without love we are nothing. If you love someone, make sure they know it because we truly never know what the future holds.

The way everyone came together to comfort each other and show their support for the families of those involved in this tragedy was nothing short of incredible. At that moment, no one cared who you voted for, what your Instagram looked like, or how much money was in your bank account.

Everyone was just overwhelmed with the desire to love and be loved and to make sure the ones on their minds knew they were as well. At that moment, the world was reminded that, if you love someone, you should let them know.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of everyone involved.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
