"L" is for the way...
|My Valentine for the past|
~almost~ 16 years. He was recently
diagnosed with early lymphoma
and my heart broke into about
a million pieces.
The Fault in Our Stars (TFIOS) by John Green tells the tale of two teenagers who have had cancer. Hazel and Gus meet in a support group and fall madly in love. The Fault in Our Stars will continue to be a story that moves everyone because, really, it has never been told before. When I read The Fault in Our Stars, I happened to be head over heels in love with somebody. (It is debatable about whether the feeling was mutual.) I remember when I read the book I kept thinking how real, how true the story was. The love wasn't sappy and clichè, it was honest. It sounded like my love. My guy was confident, just like Gus was confident. And Gus was right, you don't get to choose if you get hurt, you do have a say in who hurts you. Some people are worth it. Was he worth it for me? Yep. Will I find someone worth it again? I'm not sure but I certainly hope so. TFIOS sounded like how I really felt...confused, excited, giddy, and a little nervous. Regardless of how you feel, whether or not you are in love this Valentine's Day, take a second to feel the love in the trailer for the movie version of this book. I am actually, sorta, looking forward to the movie version. And maybe another opportunity to find someone who is worth that sort of risk.
Happy Friday. Happy Valentine's Day. Love somebody...it is better.
Um, yeah, now dance!!!
