Eres el amor de mi vida amor verdadero

Amor, nada de lo nuestro ha sido un error, ha sido amor verdadero, ese amor que se sueña tener para toda la vida.

Quiero tener planes contigo, quiero pensar que tenemos un futuro juntos, y aunque a veces hay nubes que oscurecen nuestro cielo yo sigo confiando en nosotros, porque me has demostrado que me amas tal como soy, que no me cambiarías por nada ni nadie, y eso llena mi vida, me siento confiada mirando el futuro que hemos soñado.

amor de mi vida, lo que tanto anhelo y sueño, eres el regalo tan anhelado, y aunque no estás conmigo en este momento, sé que llegará el día en el que nos abrazaremos, que juntos oiremos esa música que pones para que la escuche y me acompañe cuando tú no estas a mi lado.

Amor, ¡qué bello es amarte! ¡qué armonía hacen nuestros sentimientos cuando hablamos de ellos!

No puedo pensar estar sin ti, eso no lo pienso,porque sé que me amas, que caminas por mis senderos y me intuyes aunque no me veas.

No es un error amar así, mi vida, es un amor quizás mejor, porque nos hemos mirado el alma y de eso nos enamoramos, es toda una sinfonía nuestro amor… distintos sonidos, distinto como nuestro amor. . Varias cosas la complementan y la más grande de toda es la fidelidad que tienes para conmigo. ¿Cómo no voy amarte?

Sí, yo sé que vives para mí y cuentas el tiempo para abrazarme, para sentir mi piel…. ¿Cuántas noches hemos soñado eso?  No sé amor, creo que miles de noches, pero nunca es suficiente… siempre te soñaré…

Siempre te extrañaré…

Hasta que llegue el día que toques mi puerta, y allí será que lloraré por todo el tiempo que he tenido sin verte físicamente, porque amor mío, siempre de alguna forma te he sentido conmigo.

Siempre cariño… siempre aquí… Junto a mí… y un día ya no tendré que soñarte.

Kiss on the forehead: what does it mean?

It started with a kiss. Not only the title of a well-known album from the eighties, but also a common situation. Because the kiss is often the starting point of something beautiful, something loving, something that sparks from. A kiss on the mouth is often a clear sign of love, but when you get a kiss elsewhere, it can raise question marks. On your forehead for example. What the hell does that mean? In this article we give you the answer.


The kiss & the love

From the moment we open our eyes for the first time we are confronted with it: the kiss. A touch of the lips that will be inextricably linked to the rest of our lives. We use the kiss not only to greet or congratulate other people, but also to express our love for another. The kiss is a wonderful thing to tell your loved one without words that you love him or her and would like to be with that person. However, that does not necessarily mean that there must be a mutual kiss on the lips. The lips can also be placed on a body part. On one leg. Or on a stomach. Of course we don’t have to tell you that (such) kisses can also evoke feelings of lust. In many cases, sex is kicked off with a kiss.

Before this article takes spicy turns, let’s go back to the core: a kiss on the forehead. That does not seem so intimate at first. The forehead was not exactly an erogenous zone and certainly not an explicit point for depositing some warm feelings with the other person through a kiss. Yet a kiss on the forehead can indeed have a deeper meaning and be an enormous expression of love.


A kiss on your forehead

A kiss on the forehead is considered romantic by many people. If you get a kiss on the forehead from the other person, that means that the giver of the kiss has feelings for you. Deep feelings, that is. You read that right: a kiss on your forehead is not just a smacker, but a sign of real love. By giving you a kiss on the forehead, the other person wants to show you that he or she wants to be your patron or patron, you don’t want to lose anymore and loves you with all your heart.

Sigh. The above could just be a passage from any book of fairy tales. It would be very naive to claim that every kiss on the forehead carries one of the meanings above. This is determined by both the person giving the kiss and the person receiving the kiss. It can happen that the giver of the kiss only wants to give out one kiss and the other would rather not kiss on the mouth because of garlic reasons. Or that this kiss is used to provide comfort to the other person during a difficult moment. So many reasons, so many kisses.

There is therefore no real meaning to the kiss on the forehead. In relationships, such a kiss is often self-evident and couples have given it their own meaning. This kiss is no longer considered, because in general there is protection, affection and affection. If you get one and if it is unclear why (inside or outside) the relationship, it never hurts to look the giver straight in the eye and ask why he or she has just given that kiss. Often you will immediately find out the intentions and the meaning.


Who doesn’t honor the little …

In the time we live in, we attach more and more importance to big, bigger, biggest and often turn our back on small things. As has been shown many times before, it is the small things that often make the difference. Similarly a kiss on the forehead. The best advice we can give you is to kiss your loved one more often, instead of material things that have to be purchased with money.

Determine in advance what meaning you give to the kiss on the forehead and do not hesitate to share it with the person you love. Give it a special charge and do not be too frugal with the number of seconds you put your lips on your partner’s forehead. Know for sure that this form of showing affection is placed with your partner in the mental category “appreciation”.


Kiss more!

In general, the more kissed in a relationship, the happier both partners are with each other. We also use the kiss to receive confirmation that everything is still in a relationship. If you want to give your partner a kiss and he turns his or her head away, then that is often a clear sign that something is not right. In addition to being a sign of love, a kiss is also a means of obtaining information. What’s in it? Just think back to the moment you kissed someone and you then came to the conclusion that you didn’t see any bread in this potential partner. For example due to the lack of feelings or the so-called fireworks.

Finally, we can say that in the current era – in which love often seems to make way for hatred and envy – kisses can definitely be given to each other a little more. That may not be the Egg of Columbus, but every kiss (whatever kiss) makes the world a bit more beautiful. In any case, yours and your (kiss) partner’s, if only for a little while.

11 different kisses and this is what they mean

Is your tongue regularly found in your partner’s mouth? Does he often give you a quick, fleeting kiss on your cheek? Or does he tease you by biting your lip? The way you kiss not only says a lot about you, but also about your relationship. A kiss can mean so much. Now find out what he really means by his kiss …

Kissing is not only nice, but it is also the perfect workout to burn some extra calories. In addition, you are less bothered by stress when you regularly kiss a game and your brain produces substances that make you happy while kissing. What’s not to like?  Yet a kiss is not just a kiss, because there is a meaning behind the way you kiss and get kissed. You can read the meaning below.

1. Quick kiss on the mouth


This kiss, with closed lips , can be used in multiple situations. We often use this kiss when we say goodbye or greet someone. If you don’t get a kiss, while that is normally the case, it often means that your partner is angry with you.

2. The teasing kiss


When your partner teases your lip, he indicates that he wants more … It is a playful way of kissing with a sexual edge. Chances are that you will end up in bed after a kiss like this.

3. Kiss next to lip


When someone kisses you just next to your lip, the person in question likes you so much that he takes the time for you. At the same time, he is teasing a bit by not kissing you on your mouth, but he certainly sees you.

4. Kiss in the neck


A kiss in your neck is so incredibly sexy and when your partner kisses you in the neck, he wants more. It is not a friendly kiss, it is pure passion. Oh la la!

5. Kiss forehead


This kiss is especially very sweet and your partner indicates with this kiss that he is crazy about you.

different kisses and this is what they mean

6. French kissing


Do you kiss each other with your tongue? Then you are full of love and passion and you want to get to know each other better. Fun fact: The longest kiss lasted 58 (!) Hours. They will have burned a lot of calories. 😉

7. Kiss over the body


Often this kiss starts on the mouth and then the rest of the body follows … The cheeks, neck and chest; they all pass by. With this kiss, your partner shows that he is taking the time for you and you do not want to let go for the time being.

8. Kiss on chin


When someone kisses you on your chin, this person is testing whether it’s okay to give you a kiss. You can answer his question by giving him a kiss on his mouth.

9. Long tender kiss


You are in love with each other, and everyone is allowed to know. With this kiss you show how much you love each other.

10. The break-up kiss


The least fun kiss, but also the most intense. With this kiss comes the realization that it is over and that it is the last time that you are intimate with each other.

11. Kiss on the chest


Does your partner give kisses on your chest? Then you want him to take off your shirt as quickly as possible and go one step further …

Sneakers in the washing machine? With these tips they look like new again

Sneakers may be ‘utensils’, but we prefer to keep them as beautiful as when they just come out of the box. But how do you do that, keep your sneakers nice and wear them at the same time? Can you go out for an evening on your favorite sneakers without having to put them in the garbage? We sorted it out.

Washing sneakers

You shouldn’t do it too often, but washing sneakers in the washing machine is sometimes the solution of your ‘trampled’ shoes! From All Stars to Adidas Stan Smith , if you wash them properly, it won’t hurt. Sneakers that you should not put in the washing machine? Sneakers with elastic at the top like the Nike Flyknits , the heat shrinks the elastic. Do you want to know for sure if your shoes can be washed? Google is your friend! It is better not to put running shoes in the washing machine, because of this the quality of the sole can decrease and that is precisely so important with running shoes.

Sneakers wash step system:

We already said it, as long as you wash your shoes properly . We have made a step-by-step plan for you to put sneakers in the washing machine.

1. Remove the laces from your shoes and remove the largest pieces of mud and other dirt. Are there pebbles between the grooves in your sole? Then remove it with a skewer before putting your sneakers in the washing machine.

2. Put your sneakers in the washing machine and the laces in a pillowcase and then put everything in the washing machine. Set your washing machine so that the water does not get too hot (preferably not warmer than 30 degrees) and with a speed that is not too high, this way your sneakers will stay the best. Add a little detergent, but definitely NOT a fabric softener. 

3. Remove the sneakers from the washing machine immediately after washing and place them in a dry place. Do not place them on the heating or in the sun, heat and light may discolor or shrink your shoes. If necessary, stuff a couple of cloths in so that the shoe dries up in the right model. Do not use newspapers for this, because the ink can give off and then the entire inside of your shoe is covered with black marks. Then you can immediately put sneakers in the washing machine again ;-).

4. Be patient, it can take just 24 to 48 hours until your shoes are really dry! But how good they look … They seem like news! Long-life sneakers in the washing machine.

Sneakers in the washing machine? With these tips they look like new again

Stain champion

Are your shoes not very dirty or can they not be washed ? You can also remove stains locally with stain remover such as Biotex stain remover or Vanish Oxiaction. Apply the stain remover with an old toothbrush and carefully brush over the stain. Leave on for about 15 minutes to half an hour and then rinse well. Rinse really well, because some stain removers can leave bleach stains when they are not rinsed properly and you are probably not waiting for that.

Smells

But sneakers can not only lose their novelty due to stains, a few stink feet can also do something about it. And you can quickly get stink feet in a pair of sneakers, especially if you have been barefoot in them. Do you get stink feet quickly? Then don’t go into your sneakers bare-footed, but buy short socks that don’t go beyond the edge of your sneakers.

Has the damage already happened? Or did you get smelly shoes through your socks? No worries, there is something to do about it!

Outdoor air

First of all try to leave your shoes outside for a day, fresh air does a pair of (sweat) shoes good. Note that it will not rain, you are not waiting for wet shoes.

Freezing Do

all the tips about sneakers in the washing machine not help? Put your sneakers in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer for 24 hours. Many bacteria cannot withstand temperatures below zero, which means that you will have stink-free shoes again after 24 hours.

The Best Littmann Stethoscopes – Comparison Guide

The Best Littmann Stethoscopes - Comparison Guide

Every medical professional who works with patients needs a stethoscope, and Littmann Stethoscopes have been the best in the industry since the 1960’s when David Littmann first revolutionized personal diagnostic equipment.

They have continued to develop under the ownership of the American company 3M, with new features and innovations even today.

Littmann stethoscopes come in a variety of styles, designs, and price points. In this article, we’ll compare the cost to benefit of the most popular models to help you decide which one is right for you.

The Basics of Littmann Stethoscopes

Before you hop right into choosing a Littmann stethoscope, you should understand a bit about how they work, the important parts, and how differences in those parts affect the quality of the stethoscope.

The most important part of a stethoscope is the chest piece. This is the part that goes against the patient’s skin, and it can either be a diaphragm or a bell.

The Best Littmann Stethoscopes - Comparison Guide

A diaphragm has a membrane stretched across a hollow cavity. When the membrane vibrates, it moves the air inside and creates the pressure differences that our ears detect as noise.

Since the area of the membrane is larger than the cross-sectional area of the tube, air has to move farther within the tube and the sound is amplified.

Bells work similarly to diaphragms, but the hollow cavity in a bell has no membrane across it. Traditionally bells are used to listen to low frequency sounds.

Littmann stethoscopes come with 3 different types of chest piece adapter:

  • Tunable Diaphragm – The frequency of the sound heard can be adjusted by changing how hard the chest piece is pressed against the skin. Use low pressure to hear low frequency sounds and high pressure to hear high frequency sounds.
  • Pediatric Diaphragm – A smaller diaphragm that may or may not be tunable depending on the model. The membrane can be removed to turn the pediatric diaphragm into a bell.
  • Bell – Similar to the diaphragm but smaller and without a membrane. The bell is used to hear low frequency sounds.

Stethoscopes can have either a single or double head. A single head has one-tunable diaphragm that is used for everything.

A double headed stethoscope has a regular tunable diaphragm on one side and a bell or pediatric diaphragm on the other side. To switch between sides, swivel the chest piece around 180 degrees. You will hear a click when it locks into the correct orientation.

Only one side of the stethoscope is usable at a time, so don’t try to listen without swiveling the chest piece first!

Although many stethoscopes come with a bell, there is disagreement in the medical community whether bells are useful or obsolete. Bells are traditionally thought to be better for hearing low-frequency sounds like some heart murmurs and bowel sounds while diaphragms are better for high frequency murmurs and lung sounds [3, 5, 6].

The tunable diaphragm has called into question whether bells are an instrument of the past, but no consensus has been reached. Littmann offers both types of stethoscope as the difference seems to be largely personal preference [1, 2, 4].

1 Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope

The Littmann Lightweight SE model has a double-sided chest piece with a tunable diaphragm and a bell.

The flat teardrop-shaped head that is designed to slip under blood pressure cuffs shows that its designers never intended it for in-depth cardiac exams.

Although the Lightweight II SE is only an ounce lighter than the Littmann Classic, that ounce can make a difference over the course of an entire shift around your neck or in a pocket.

Overall, it is a great first Littmann stethoscope with excellent quality for the price.

  • Length: 28 in (71 cm) tube
  • Chest Piece (adult): 2.1 in (5.4 cm)
  • Weight: 4.2 oz (118 g)
  • Chestpiece Material: metal/resin composite
  • Tunable diaphragm
  • 2-year warranty
  • Does not contain latex

Pros and Cons

  • Pros: Inexpensive. Lighter than other models
  • Cons: Limited usefulness in patient exams outside vitals

The Littmann Lightweight II SE is a good purchase for an EMT-B or a broke student, but for long-term use, an upgrade is in order.

2 Littmann Stethoscope Classic III

3M’s Littmann Classic III is arguably the standard for those with a career in the medical field.

The chest piece has a double-sided head with both an adult and pediatric diaphragm. Both diaphragms are tunable, and the pediatric diaphragm membrane can be replaced with a rubber rim to become a bell.

Overall, the Littmann Classic III stethoscope is a great model for everyday patient exams.

  • Chest Piece: Adult – 1.7 in (4.3 cm). Pediatric – 1.3 in (3.3 cm)
  • Weight: 5.3 oz (150 g)
  • Chestpiece Material: stainless steel
  • Adult/Pediatric Tunable Diaphragms
  • 2-year warranty
  • Does not contain latex

Pros and Cons

  • Pros: Solid performance in every category. A lot of added value over the Littmann Lightweight II SE
  • Cons: None

The Classic III is probably overkill for taking vitals and lacks the nuance needed for cardiology, but it is perfect for paramedics, nurses, and physicians’ assistants looking for a reliable Littmann stethoscope to do standard patient exams.

3 Best Littmann Cardiology Stethoscopes

Littmann’s cardiology stethoscopes are well above the quality of cheaper models, but among the top tier, what separates the men from the boys?

Littmann Cardiology III

The Littmann Cardiology III was the bottom line on cardiology stethoscopes for years.

The sound quality is significantly better than the Classic III, and overall it is a great buy. If you loved using the Cardiology III and want another one, I have good news for you. They’ve come out with the Cardiology IV, and it’s even better!

Littmann Cardiology IV

The Cardiology IV is the best Littmann stethoscope on the market without getting into the pros and cons of electric stethoscopes.

The Littmann Master Cardiology has slightly better acoustics, but at this level of performance the difference is splitting hairs.

The Cardiology IV has a double sided head with both an adult and pediatric tunable diaphragm. The pediatric diaphragm membrane can be replaced with a rubber ring to become a bell if desired.

Specifications

  • Length: 27 in (69 cm) tube. 22 in (56 cm) tube (black only)
  • Chest Piece: Adult – 1.7 in (4.3 cm). Pediatric – 1.3 in (3.3 cm)
  • Weight: 5.9 oz (167 g) for 22 in tube. 6.2 oz (177 g) for 27 in tube
  • Chestpiece Material: stainless steel
  • Adult/Pediatric Tunable Diaphragms
  • 7-year warranty
  • Does not contain latex

Pros and Cons

  • Excellent in every category. The longer stethoscope tube does not noticeably hurt acoustic quality. Isolates noise well in loud environments

The Littmann Cardiology IV is perfect for identifying cardiac, breath, and other bodily sounds in both adults and children. It is our top Littmann stethoscope pick for its quality, versatility, and overall performance.

Littmann Master Cardiology

By thickening the stainless steel head, increasing the diaphragm size, and removing the pediatric diaphragm, the Littmann Master Cardiology reaches the very peak of acoustic performance.

Although the sound quality is second to none, compromises were made in other areas that may make this stethoscope less appealing to some.

If you have a pediatric rotation or see children on a regular basis, the adult-sized diaphragm is too large. It does come with a rubber pediatric attachment that still lets you use the tunable diaphragm, but it is a separate piece from the stethoscope. Keeping track of the detachable pediatric adapter all the time could be annoying.

The Master Cardiology is one of the heaviest Littmann stethoscopes because thicker stainless steel is used in the chest piece to improve acoustics.

Specifications

  • Length: 27 in (69 cm) tube, 22 in (56 cm) tube
  • Chest Piece: Adult – 2 in (5.1 cm)
  • Weight: 6.2 oz (175 g) for 22 in tube, 6.5 oz (185 g) for 27 in tube
  • Chestpiece Material: stainless steel
  • Adult Tunable Diaphragms
  • 7-year warranty
  • Does not contain latex

Pros and Cons

  • Pros: Top of the line acoustics. The longer stethoscope tube does not noticeably hurt acoustic quality. Isolates noise well in loud environments
  • Cons: Detached pediatric adapter. Acoustic difference compared to Cardiology IV is not extreme

The acoustic difference between the Master Cardiology and Cardiology IV is not extreme, so the versatility of the Cardiology IV makes it a better pick for most people.

If you value acoustic quality above all else, however, this has the best sound quality before taking a large price leap into electronic stethoscopes.

4 Littmann 3100 Electronic Stethoscope

Under normal circumstances, a Littmann Cardiology stethoscope is all you’ll ever need, but for those who are hard of hearing, an electronic stethoscope may be necessary.

Electronic stethoscopes digitally boost the sound coming through the diaphragm to much higher levels and selectively decrease ambient noise.

The Littmann 3100 Electronic Stethoscope can be set to diaphragm or bell mode to selectively hear high or low frequencies respectively.

4 Littmann 3100 Electronic Stethoscope

Note: This review is for the 3100 stethoscope. The 3200 has the same auditory benefits, but it can record sounds for playback later.

Specifications

  • Length: 27 in (69 cm) tube
  • Chest Piece: 2 in (5.1 cm)
  • Weight: 6.5 oz (185 g) for 27 in tube
  • Adult Electronic Diaphragm
  • 2-year warranty
  • Does not contain latex

Pros and Cons

  • Pros: Better sound quality and volume than any normal stethoscope. Actively dampens background noise
  • Cons: More moving parts that can break. Uses batteries

Under normal circumstances, there is no reason to spend the considerable extra money for an electronic stethoscope. For those with hearing loss, however, it can really improve their ability to examine patients.

The Bottom Line

  1. If you are only taking vitals, the Lightweight S.E. II is all you need.
  2. For vitals and standard cardiopulmonary exams, the Littmann Classic III is the way to go.
  3. For identifying and studying cardiac, lung, and body sounds, the Cardiology IV or the Master Cardiology are the best.
  4. If your hearing is impaired, look into the Littmann 3100 electronic stethoscope.

Littmann Stethoscope Holders and Accessories

Stethoscope Holder

Littmann Stethoscope Holders and Accessories

If you don’t like conforming to the stethoscope-around-the-neck stereotype or you work with violent psych patients, there are a variety of convenient holsters that can both clip to a waste band/pocket or thread through a belt loop.

My personal favorite is this leather Velcro stethoscope holderbecause it looks slick and holds any model/size of stethoscope.

Stethoscope Case

Stethoscope Case

After spending a lot of money on a nice stethoscope, it would be a shame to crush it under books or puncture the diaphragm as it rolls around in a bag with the rest of your stuff.

A hard case protects your Littmann stethoscope from damage and can double as a pouch to consolidate nick-knacks.

Personally I like the zippered hard case.

Tips

  1. With high quality stethoscopes, a longer tube does not noticeably reduce sound quality.
  2. Stainless steel is the optimal acoustical material for a chest piece [6].
