Does being “In Love” last forever?

“The difference between ‘Like’, ‘Love’ & ‘In Love’ is the same difference between ‘For Now’, ‘For A While’ & ‘Forever’”

~ Unknown

Everything is temporary in life – life itself, friendship, good times, bad times, memories, and even love.  All we can try to do is to prolong the inevitability of losing what we cherish the most in life. Concerning love, it’s important to understand what love means to you and that your partner understands it too. Two people who are “in love” is much different than loving each other. The difference stems from the commitment, desire, and action put forth to keep the love alive between them. So be sure and recognize the difference between liking someone, loving someone and being “in love” with someone and more importantly, make sure the one you are “in love” with does too. If you can do this successfully, you can obtain something that most only dream of having — true love. Have you done something special for the one you are “in love” with today? If not, do so. Let love reign!

Soul food

“If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once a week.”

~ Charles Darwin

During your busy days that are sometimes filled with stress, worry, anger, sadness, and anxiety, you should make time to occasionally read some poems and listen to music that encourages, uplifts and excites you. Neither of these actions require appointments and commitments with other people except yourself, so do yourself a favor and invest in your mental and spiritual health by reading printed words and listen to music that stimulate your soul. If Mr. Darwin needed it in his life, then you probably do too.

What is controlling you?

“He who reigns within himself and rules his passions, desires, and fears is more than a king.”

~ John Milton (1608-1674) English Poet

In life, we try to control many aspects of it that we actually cannot control. You should only focus on the things you can control, i.e., your passions, desires and fears. If you can learn to conquer this feat, then you will gain personal power, thusly achieving most anything that is within your ability.
