Do not take your eyes for granted because if you lose your ability to see, it will dramatically change the way you live the rest of your life. With the gift of vision, we are able to accomplish anything that we want to do in our daily lives, through communication and interaction with our community, which we are able to do because of our sight. In other words, our vision is like the foundation of life, since our success in life relies on our vision. I’m not trying to say that if you are blind, then you can’t be successful, but those who can see will have a significantly higher success rate because the ability to see is a huge advantage, since it will make communication and learning easier, resulting in a better life socially and academically. Those who are blind are still about to accomplish the same goals and even more than those who are not, but they have to face the fact that they have may be limited in what they can do.
To be creative, to have creativity, and to create, all of these are things that each individual possesses. Creativity can be described as the need and yearning to make something have value, sparked from inspiration and made a reality. Creativity occurs in the frontal lobe, one of the four lobes in the cerebral hemisphere. It controls attention, behavior, abstract thinking, problem solving, creative thought, emotion, intellect, initiative, judgment, coordinated movements, muscle movements, smell, physical reactions, and personality. Therefore, everyone is able to be “creative”, but rather, it is the human mentality that limits how “creative” one can become. Although the frontal lobe is responsible for creativity, it has also been known that other parts of the brain can interact with different parts of the brain. So this means that not only is the frontal lobe responsible, but rather your brain, or rather… you. You are creative.
Oh love….at one point in our lives we’ve all felt an attraction to that special someone. The great thing about it is that love is felt all over the world, it doesn’t matter who you are, where you are, or how much wealth you have. Now to be clear, we are talking about romantic love with a significant other, known as passionate love. The organ of love is your brain, NOT the heart, no matter what Hollywood or cheesy romance stories try to portray. Why is this? Well your brain is in charge of releasing dopamine and nor epinephrine which is released when you focus on that special someone. So that explains that, warm feeling you get when you think about your crush. Love also exerts a behavior known as limerence, where new couple are obsessed with each other. This is the stage of a relationship where the new couple are CRAZY about each other and seem to want to be around each other all the time, even if it means there would be consequences in order to spend time with them. Pretty crazy right?
