Have you looked around at what's going on around the world lately? Constant news of violence, hate crimes, corruption, social and political injustices, environmental issues, cultural, economical, and sometimes religious warfare are the norm.
Isn’t it funny how storms can rearrange, alter, and change our plans? When we are faced with stormy weather, it’s out of our control. The plans we might have for a day exploring a new city might be abruptly shortened, not to mention dampen our mood and course of action. It can sometimes deviate us from our optimistic mood IF we choose to allow it. After all, everything is but a choice.
The most complex, most challenging, life-changing, exhilarating, serotonin-inducing and at times energy-draining four-letter word known to man, love. Why do we, as humans, at times, do stupid and for some, illegal things for the sake of love? What is it about love that drives us to do crazy and irrational things?

There isn’t one person who never lied in life before. We are spiritual beings living a human experience after all. It starts from white lies to small lies to bigger lies.
