Love is a Strange Thing

Clearing out some documents today on my pc and ran into this. Can't remember where I found it but it's quite funny I found this at this time.

Love is a strange thing. It can be the most amazing feeling in the world, or it can really hurt, but in the end love is something most, if not all of us, will face. While there are many different ways to define love and there are many different ways to love someone (even yourself), here is a general guide to loving.

1. Say it. When you say the words "I Love You", they should carry with them the desire to show someone that you love them, not what you simply want to feel. When you say it make sure you really mean it and are willing to do anything for that special person.

2. Empathize. Put yourself in someone else's shoes. Rather than impose your own expectations or attempt to control them, try to understand how they feel, where they come from, and who they are. Realize how they could also love you back just as well.

3. Love unconditionally. If you cannot love another person without attaching stipulations, then it is not love at all, but deep-seated opportunism (one who makes the most of an advantage, often unmindful of others). If your interest is not in the other person as such, but rather in how that person can enhance your experience of life, then it is not unconditional. If you have no intention of improving that person’s life, or allowing that person to be themselves and accepting them as they are, and not who you want them to be, then you are not striving to love them unconditionally.

4.Expect nothing in return. That doesn't mean you should allow someone to mistreat or undervalue you. It means that giving love does not guarantee receiving love. Try loving just for the sake of love. Realize that someone may have a different way of showing his or her love for you, do not expect to be loved back in exactly the same way.

5.Realize it can be lost. If you realize that you can lose the one you love, then you have a greater appreciation of what you have. Think how lucky you are to have someone to love. Don't make an idol of the person you love. This will place them under undue pressure and will likely result in you losing them.


Hiding my Heart



I’ve been given the opportunity to get into something that has the potential to be extremely amazing. In fact it’s an opportunity that I think I’ve wanted for a very long time now. But I’m nervous. Honestly I’m scared. Not scared of the opportunity per se but somehow scared that it may be a repeat of old. Scared that I may be stepping into something and get blindsided. Scared that somehow this messes up and then what? And I know that I may be scaring myself for no reason but it’s there. That nervous feeling of possible failure is there. And I wish I could venture into this without it…but I can’t.

Then Im afraid that my fear will spoil it….


Fury Food

For the past few months I have depended on food a lot. Not just eating it but have started back cooking and baking. Most times it has been happening when something is bothering me. So I make Fury Food!! Lol

Today I has some stuff on my mind and so decided to spend some time in the kitchen. I found a "cheesy bread" recipe from My Life on a Plate and decided to try that along with my usual banana muffins since I had some bananas there spoiling.

I followed the bread recipe to a tee. Changed nothing. It was amazing.

I then made some banana muffins. Another easy recipe (I'll post this recipe later as a separate post).
