I’ve been saving this book to read right after my final examination (well eventually I can’t resist my inner urge and finish it just before my practical exam)
I really like Cecelia Adhern. I admire her modern style of fairy tales. Some of us might not even think it is possible for these stories to happen in real life and its hilarious to even give a chance to read it. For some people who do love these stories, its alright! It’s because we don’t get it often in real life, hence we are resorting ourselves to these fairy tales in novels. For me, I am a firm believer of fairy tales (laugh as much as you want but I am not going to change the fact).
Today, I’ve finally finished the whole novel. I am going to say, it’s definitely a worth-reading novel even though at certain point, there are some heart-wrenching moments.
To quote a paragraph in the novel which I found it exceptionally meaningful which I should be kept it in mind always:
“Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful thing, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you for ever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts for ever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after they’re gone”
It is true that to find someone we love and who loves us back is a wonderful thing because who would ever imagine in a sea of million and million of people out there, two people would felt the same way for each other. This is even beyond the calculation of the brilliant mathematician in the world. Don’t you think so? Thus, it’s even luckier if we found a soul mate because soul mate would imply someone who truly know you the most and compliment you the most as well 😀
We might fall out of love for once in our lifetime. Or I should correct it, most of us will fall out of love for once in our lifetime. Some of us will be experiencing love for a short period and fall out of it, and we got upset for getting back into love again. “Sometimes love was cruelly taken away too soon, but it’s what you did with it that counted, not how long it lasted” If we are able to digest this, we will never fall out of love 🙂 Just because it ended too soon, we gave up on embracing the memories that we created once a upon a time.
Life is for living. Life goes on no matter how reluctant you don’t want it to. So let’s try our best to live everyday to the fullest. Whatever lay ahead, just open up your heart and follow where it led you 😀
Shoot for the moon and if you miss you’ll still be among the stars 😀
P.S. I Love You
