“When we drive away in secret, you’ll be a volunteer; so don’t scream when we take you: the world is quiet here.”

Motherhood has taught me so many things, the most important of which being the meaning of living in the moment. Children don’t think about yesterday, and they don’t think about tomorrow. They just exist in the moment. That’s why, as a mother, you have to make every moment count.

  • People: I can't believe Damien's not a Slytherin!
  • Me: What? Have you ever met a LESS ambitious person? He could do literally anything he wanted to the world. He could start or end wars. He could restructure the government. He could end hunger and poverty. He could appoint himself king of everything. And what does he do? He skips lines and makes people tell him their secrets!

full offense why do we teach women that food is their enemy

I have a lot of feelings about the latest chapter of “Flowey is Not a Good Life Coach” and this sums up most of them

Bonus ending!

Titanic’s ending was written intentionally ambiguous. For me, it was never unclear; Rose reunites with her beloved Jack in heaven, after dying as an old lady warm in her bed, thus completing “The Promise.”

However, as I reflected upon the parallels in the film I liked the idea of, “The Dream Wedding” interpretation. It is depicted strikingly like a wedding. Rose is radiant in white with people warmly greeting her as she ascends towards Jack. 

My point is, not only do I think the scene parallels her suicide attempt, showing that she has lived a long and fulfilling life, but I think it symbolically contrasts and concludes the conflict of her impending “nightmare wedding” that she describes to Jack earlier in the film. It is an emotionally satisfying depiction of how her dream wedding would have looked. Not to mention Jack wears the same outfit in each scene, linking them, whether intentional or unintentional.  

And that makes complete sense that it can be interpreted with both meanings simultaneously, because Rose’s story isn’t a singular one. There are two emotional plot lines in Titanic as opposed to the standard one for most films, 1. Her journey towards living a life with meaning, and 2. Her star-crossed, yet, timeless love with Jack. In so, I think it’s profoundly fitting that the final sequence can be interpreted as a culmination to both emotional plot lines. Ultimately, she lived a fulfilling life making each day count, and at long last, she wedded the love of her life.


Kelley was never combative, but he seemed drawn to passionate souls…. Something in him liked a fighter, and he enjoyed the role of counselor that gave these heroes strength and rest.

When you’re told that you should get out and meet new people.

We’re living in a time where Christians are regularly being killed by ISIS. What are we doing with our religious liberty here in America? We take for granted the freedom that others in this world are dying without. What are we going to do? I’m not satisfied living a life that is meaningless. In the light of the murder of my brothers and sisters in the Middle East and in the light of the sacrifice of my Savior, I’ve got to make this life count. Because someday I’m going to meet those Christians who gave their lives for Jesus. And I don’t want to be ashamed of wasting my life.
