“Love doesn’t make the world go round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
– Franklin P. Jones

I absolutely love watching themed television, when Easter or Christmas or Halloween comes around the corner, I bring out my handy dandy list of movies that I like to mark the occasion but I realised I didn’t have one for Valentine’s day. Whether I’m single or not, there’s nothing like celebrating the day of Love by watching movies particularly ones that make you feel fuzzy and romantic inside. The kinds of movies that make you laugh, cry, reminisce and thankful are the best ones to get you through the Love holiday. So if you find yourself dateless or even if you just want a quiet night, take a look at my list of Valentine’s movies that’s sure to put a little love in your heart!

So get your tissues ready and enjoy!

And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he’ll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you’ll go somewhere new. And you’ll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back.

So whether you’re all loved up and with your significant other, or sitting in the company of Mr. Ben and Mr. Jerry on Valentine’s day, I hope you spend this day thinking about those you love and those that love you. Remember that you can never be lonely when there you have your friends and family around. If you are still looking for our soul mate, take a little lesson from these movies, there are billions of people in this world, and you just never know when you’re going to meet ‘the one’ they’re looking for you, so open your eyes, open your heart and try to look a little closer at who’s trying to catch your eye.

I wish you nothing but love this Valentine’s day.

Always remember…

Do something to make your parents proud today, your kids proud someday but most importantly, you proud every day!

Peace and Love
