Take the opportunity to love while you can.

Death Is More Certain Than Love, So Love Deeply For As Long As You Can

Love deeply.


What would you do if you found out that you had six months left to live? Would you live your life as carefree as ever or would you keep on living like you normally do?

I once read a sad short story about a man who found out that he had a few weeks left to live. He spent the time he had left chasing the person he thought he loved while ignoring the actual people that loved him. It wasn't until he was alone on his death bed that he realized the mistake he made.

This story really opened my eyes and confirmed what I have always believed about love. When your loved ones tell you that they will love you forever even after death, do you really believe it? Or are you a realist like me who believes that love is just a feeling that exists until death comes and separates you from the people you love forever? I have always believed that it is a very crazy emotion. It is so ambivalent in the fact that we need it to make the world a happier place while on the other hand, it makes us do unnatural things.

Death is more certain than love.

It is a sure thing that everyone will die one day, but is it sure that the love you had while alive will last even after you are gone? I have seen so many people believe that they would love someone forever, but the moment they are gone, life goes on and they begin to forget the person and move on with their life. I know that that is how life is, we meet new people every day and experience new things and this tends to make us forget the things we once held dear.

I believe death comes between love and that once it comes, love will die, and life will go on. I also believe that it should not hinder us from loving the people we hold dear that surround us. Death is sure to come but till it does, show the people that love you have for them: send flowers to your significant other while they are at work/school, call your parents and siblings and tell them you love them, send that text message to your friends and tell them how much you appreciate them. Life is short, and we will never know when death will come but till then...

Love deeply.

6 Important Must Knows For Dating Sassy And Sarcastic Girls

Brace yourselves boys, she's a tough one.

Dating a girl with a big personality can be tricky. They are some of the most amazing girls but to keep them, one needs to understand them. Here are six important things you must be aware of before you give your heart to a sassy and sarcastic girl.

1. Stubborn

She is going to be the most stubborn creature you will ever meet. I say "creature" because she might actually scare you with how much she refuses to back down until you have full proof she is wrong. And if you can’t prove her wrong, just suck up your pride and let her be right or she’ll never quit. But just remember that she’s simply passionate about whatever it is and you should be proud of her for that.

2. Bluntness

She is going to be blunt. So be prepared to hear the truth. She isn’t going to care how mad you get, if you’re being rude, she won’t be afraid to put you in your place. If your choice of clothing isn’t matching, she’ll tell you. Whatever it is, she isn’t going to keep the truth from you. Sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes she’s just a little too straightforward.

3. Sensitivity

Be careful sometimes with your choice of words. Though she is blunt, she is also sensitive. Her sarcastic personality is sometimes just a defense mechanism because she fears opening up. She worries a lot and continues to ponder the things you say. Remind her she is loved.

4. Friends

She is going to have a lot more guy friends than she will have girl friends. Why? Because guys tend to find more humor in her sarcasm and don’t take it so personal, whereas other girls take it as she’s being serious and just rude. However, don’t be jealous because trust me, you’re 100 percent hers and those guy friends are just that — friends.

5. Insults

She’s not going to flirt with you by giggling and blushing and calling you cute. She’s going to call you an idiot and smack you across the shoulder or back because to her, that’s easier than being all giddy and speechless over how much she likes you. And even when she’s calling you names, which really is in all fun and games, she doesn’t mean it seriously, she’s actually just saying “I love you” in her own special language.

6. Shorty

If she’s short in addition to being sassy and sarcastic, you’re in for a big treat with her. She is not only going to be full of fast wit, but she is going to have so much spunk in her you won’t know what to do. She will be so feisty that she won’t be afraid of anything or anyone and you yourself won’t even know how to handle her. That’s what makes her special.

It takes a certain type of person to be able to give their heart to someone who can so easily break it with their strong headed personality. But a sarcastic and sassy girl is going to be the one girl who is going to love you with all that she has. Treat her right, and she’ll treat you right.

Poetry On Odyssey: Summer

However I choose to spend my time, I will know that I made this summer season mine.



Oh how I have missed this time of year.

My favorite season, it is finally here!

The time for laying on the beach with my toes in the sand.

Or going in a boat away from land.

Feel the sun shine down on me,

Or sitting in the shade under neighbor's tree.

Going with my mom and taking a hike,

Or going for a ride on my bike.

However I choose to spend my time,

I will know that I made this summer season mine.
