One of the greatest, if not the greatest gift life can offer a person is the gift of love. Firstly, what is love? What can make you know whether you love, or that you are loved by someone? How do you feel when you are loved?

My opinion of love is that is it the deep affection or adoration you feel for someone or something. And this affection comes from deep within your heart where nobody except those you truly love can reach. Love can also be tenderness, fondness, warmth, intimacy, attachment, devotion, passion, desire and many more.

Furthermore, when you feel love or loved by a person, there is this feeling that suddenly fills you when you come face to face with that person. When you love somebody, you can feel all shy around them but the love shines through on your face.

Everybody is meant t love because it is something we are meant to share – not keep to ourselves. Not having the ability to show and share love can make a person very lonely and sad. If we make room for someone new to love in our lives, it doesn’t mean there’s less love to go around; it means that our circle has grown and there is so much more love to share.

Love grows. But it can also wither and die before maturing. Therefore, when you love someone give them your best and your love will blossom.  I think love is the best thing in life. Everybody needs to show some love to their friends, family and neighbours. Smile at a stranger in the street and see how it makes you feel. With a lot of love in your life things will be just great.


Life - A Wonderful Gift

They say only a mother can appreciate the joy of giving life to a child. And yes, this is true because if a mother does not decide to have a baby, there would be no child! I think life is the existence, creation and survival of a living thing.

According to author Dan Okpoti, life is full of struggles. Some people move along slowly while others rush through life without stopping to appreciate the beauty of it. ‘Life is like an egg,’ he said, ‘when it falls it breaks, when it is well frozen it makes. Life is bitterly sweet.’

I think life is an opportunity of a life time which God Almighty provided us with. He gave us life and life is a test to all of us on this planet to differentiate the righteous and loyal servants from the awkward and disloyal servants of God. Mankind has just one life and once you lose this life, you fail to be in existence. Life is not easy and therefore we must have perseverance and above all, confidence in ourselves.

Furthermore, you can life happily when you free your heart from hatred, free your mind from worries, live simply, accept your friends and neighbours, give as much as you can to your life and on top of it all, have your holy book as a guide. With all of these I think life would be led on the right path. I think that, in accordance with the Dalai Lama that our prime purpose in life is to help others and if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
