A Letter To The Person With An Open Heart

Never let anyone convince you that this is something to be ashamed of.

A Letter To The Person With An Open Heart

If you took the time to read this article, then you are probably the kind of person who falls in love quickly, deeply and with everything that you have. In today's tinder-driven world, having a heart like this can be dangerous. It leaves you susceptible to getting hurt far more than someone who never takes down their walls. Having the ability to take a chance this great speaks volumes to the kind of person you are and your relationship to the world you are surrounded by.

If you have an open heart, you love differently. You are the one who would drop anything to be there for someone, no matter what you had going on in your own life. Whether it's two in the afternoon or two in the morning, you are the person who not only answers their phone, but stays with the person on the other end until you are absolutely positive that they are alright. You never forget the difference between making time to speak to your loved ones and only speaking to them when you have the time.

If you have an open heart, you are affected by your past, but not restrained by it. This is not to say that you don't remember every time you had your heart broken-- you have the ability to vividly recall the pain that came as a direct result of loving "too much." With this in mind, you are one of the bravest people in the world for taking the same chances again.

If you have an open heart, you believe firmly in forgiveness and second chances. You are inclined to believe in others, even when they don't believe in themselves. This optimism is what makes you the person that no one forgets. Your encouragement and love leaves the kind of impact that is never erased no matter how many years pass by.

If you have an open heart, you must know how to recognize when others begin taking you for granted. The love you offer is a unique love that not every person can handle. Learn how to distinguish those who give you what you give them, and those who consistently take and leave you feeling empty.

I have had my heart broken in relationships, but I have refused to let this make me a bitter person. I believe that never being afraid to fall in love is what allowed me to find someone who loves me for everything I am and everything I am not-- a person who values, respects and encourages me with the same open heart that I have always tried to keep.

Your open heart is beautiful. In a world that has become cold and detached, you have managed to maintain something that so many have lost. Don't allow anyone or any experience to change the way you see the world and those who live in it. Never forget that if people began to adopt your mindset and courage, our world would become a vastly better place.

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.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.
