Dreams can be a tad funny, ain't it? Especially if it kept on repeating itself for two nights in a row and then continue to where it stopped the previous night. It's akin to having a bookmark on the favorite novel you've red the previous night.   I awoke to the chill air as Luna kissed the Sky goodbye - She said to him, "see you again tonight, my love." As she departed, a tinge of sadness loomed within their hearts. It seems that the Sun's presence can't replace Luna's overwhelming charm as the Sky longed to embrace her celestial beauty again tonight. The night is theirs to make love. What immense longing must these lovers endure prior being together once more, ... Read More

"I can't control your behavior; nor do I want the burden...but I will not apologize for refusing to be disrespected, to be lied to, to be mistreated. I have standards. Step up or step out." Steve Maraboli Once again, it seems that this love and hate relationship between siblings has been brewing. I thought that this relationship would get better as we got older but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm reigning my temper as I'm the eldest, but last time I finally told her my sentiments.

According to Norman Cousins,“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”  So what is it? Is it the hope inside us? Is it the will to live? Or is it the dream? I'm baffled by this. (I'll be updating this as soon as I have my answers...till then).

"Love begets love." "Don't seek love nor hold on to it especially if it's not freely given. Love will find its way." I've never been in a lot of relationships, I've only been in one. But my knowledge regarding relationships makes up for my lack of experience. For five years I've been single and I watched my friends go through countless relationships in short duration's. Through them I was able to learn the common pitfalls of a relationship. But what do I really look for in a partner? Simple. I want to be with someone who can connect with my mind and soul.

Something always holds us back in a relationship. Nowadays, people change partners like trying on a new outfit. You then think that if it's going to last for a short duration why waste your time? What's the point? There are countless reasons for the temporary relationships that I'll be expounding in 7 examples; (1) When people find someone they like, they want to rush in a relationship. To do that, they overcompensate with their efforts to woo the other person. The other person falls for the false image and starts a relationship. For the first few days, weeks or months the other person can keep up with the facade. But at one point they will find it hard ... Read More

"How do you remove toxic people from your life if that person is family?" That particular question was raised by someone I knew in high school. Let's call him Alex.  According to one saying, "blood is thicker than water." Which means to say that you have strong ties with your kin compared to strangers. However, there are also instances wherein that is not the case; or if you are still close, you were doing that to avoid conflict within the family. What happens when that person becomes toxic in your life? Should you still keep in contact with them? How'd you remove them from your life? Those questions can really be tough to answer especially ... Read More
