“The trouble with love is….
It can tear you up inside, make your heart believe a lie,
its stronger than your pride.

The trouble with love is….
It doesn’t care how fast you fall and you can’t refuse the call,
See you’ve got no say at all.” – Love Actually Soundtrack performed by Kelly Clarkson

I love romantic comedies, love songs and the likes. Love Actually is one of my all time favorites. Sometimes I just want to listen to a good old melancholy love song with a glass of red wine and my phone switched off.

However, at other times, I can’t help but fault some of the prevalent “love notions”.

I have got no say at all? Really? Like Love is some cataclysmic event that you have no control over and which can potentially ruin your life.

I honestly think it comes down to our general tendency to blame someone else or something else for our choices and decisions.

Love is a choice pure and simple. And when you do choose to love, do it truly and simply; the way it should be done (patiently, with kindness, hope and selflessness…).

Love is indeed a powerful force, perhaps the most powerful on this planet but it is still a choice. Imagine how much responsibility and potential that knowledge places in your hands. Now use it wisely. 🙂

Have a LOVE-ly day peeps 😉
