VD1-Breaking the myth of heartbreaks

breaks

Pretty deep. A “heartbreak” is the most tragic natural disaster; your world stops, you want to cry, you want to die, but you can only sigh. LOL, but I don’t get one thing, why is it called a “heartbreak”? Like does your heart really break? Is your heart made of glass? Last I checked, the heart is an organ that ONLY PUMPS. That boom boom boom when you see that special someone is your heart pumping blood (like it always does) to all parts of your body.

You know who you should blame? Your brain… Your brain is responsible for EVERYTHING! It makes us blame our eyes when we say love is blind, it sends butterflies to the stomach, tells the heart to pump blood to the reproductive organs etc etc etc; Its the brain, blame the brain. When a person “falls in love”, different areas of the brain release euphoria-inducing chemicals such as dopamine, oxytocin (the so-called love hormone), adrenaline and vasopressin. Increased heart rate? That’s the brain telling the heart to beat faster so the chemicals in the blood can reach organs faster. The heart is just an errand boy who is blamed for mishaps(Classic case of shooting the messenger).

Love is a choice a person makes, has NOTHING, nothing at all to do with the heart. And guess who makes that choice? The brain. And forgiving someone who “broke your heart”? Also a choice. The heart cannot fall and break into pieces, the heart is not a plate. Your brain is not a plate and if your brain “breaks”, it can repair itself. So next time someone offends you and says sorry, don’t give that silly excuse of “you broke my heart”, its irreparable (if your heart breaks, you won’t live to tell the tale), things might not be the same because trust has been breached but you can forgive the person and let them go so you can live your life! And the next time you see that cute person and your brain wants to misbehave, tell it “hey hey, your mind for dey!!”.

Take control of your emotions and your life. Forgiveness matters. Do you understand?

I’ll be back tomorrow.

All Dogs Go To Heaven

Dear Doggy heaven God,

I miss my dog already and it has only been 24 hours since he departed. Eternally.My Zeus, my favorite Dachshund. 12 years ago, he joined the family and was awesome( and naughty too). He was more than a pet, more like a wonderful friend. He knew when I was sad and came to sit quietly by me or when I was angry and just went into hiding. I will miss his barks of joy when he heard us talk about walks. And yes, he was the original Chicken Slayer, once a neighbour’s chicken entered our compound, we either saved it or he eats it whole(feathers and all),I hope you don’t classify it as stealing at your end lol.

I will miss watching youtube dog videos and insulting him because he couldn’t do most of the cool tricks. And when he started growing fat and we used to go jogging with him and how he got tired you have to carry him home. Or when I went on long walks with him to clear my head and think. I talked to him and he never gave bad advice, he doesn’t give advise at all (lol), but he listened. When I fall ill and have to stay indoors,he comes to sit by my bed or jumps in bed with me. He was that awesome dog, the mighty Zeus. And he never allowed his size to bother him, he fought with the big dogs and chased people around. I hope doggy heaven has rice and spaghetti and chickens, because those are his favorite. And he likes to have his own box to sleep in, with a towel laid inside else he will go and pull clothes left on the drying line and line them in his box and sleep(he believes its his right).

He was a good dog, a little stubborn at times, disobedient at times but that is what made him a cool dog. I don’t know why you had to come for him now, but always tell him that I will miss him so much and will never forget him. I loved him so. Take care of him for me.

Thank you. RIP Zeus. RIP Chicken Slayer. I’m happy I had you.Goodbye Dog
Achere.

Goodbye El Guaje

8th July, 2013 was a sad day for me, my favorite player in Barcelona David Villa(El Guaje) was sold to Atl├ętico Madrid after playing for Barcelona FC for 3 seasons. Before he was signed, I knew him as a winger for Valencia FC and the Spanish National team. I was very excited when I heard Guardiola was going to sign him. Then he won the World Cup in South Africa, the excitement was too much.

David Villa

David Villa

He was a great buy, I always remember his signature goals on that dangerous left foot of his. His goals against Real Madrid in the 5 nil whipping and his goal in the 3-1 win over Manchester United in the UEFA champions league final. He was doing very well till he started getting injured then the major injury came in the Fifa World Club Cup competition. He slowly lost his spot in the starting 11 and truth be told, Barca is a winning club, its a little difficult dealing with players who aren’t consistent. The injuries made him inconsistent. We saw less and less of him till the day I heard, he had been sold. I knew it was coming but it was still very heartbreaking. Oh, and that his goal against AC Milan *sigh*.

I will always love you El Guaje, David 7 Villa. Wishing you all the best.

Corgito Ergo Sum,
Achere
