If You Believe In Love, You Need To See 'Forever My Girl'

"It's a story about finding your way."

If You Believe In Love, You Need To See 'Forever My Girl'

By the title of the movie, you probably think that this is some standard Nicholas Sparks novel where the girl and the boy overcome all the odds to be together. Well, let me just start this off by saying that this movie is far from ordinary.

This new film that was released on Jan. 19 is, in better words, a realistic romance. Although most people don't run off and become country stars, you've heard more stories about people leaving town for a couple years and then returning to rekindle love with their old high school sweetheart.

And, yes, that phrase makes it seem like another cliche love story that has been told 1,000 times, but this is more than boy meets girl, breaks girls heart and then comes back to mend it.

It's a story about family.

It's a story about friendship.

It's a story about heartbreak.

It's a story about finding your way.

Liam Page, the male lead in the film, ran away from the love of his life on their wedding day and killed himself for it each day with alcohol and whatever hot blonde was in the front row of every show. It took a major life trauma (not going to spoil it) to make him realize it was time to go back to his roots.

And where were those roots? In the hometown where his ex-fiance was, and little to Page's knowledge, a huge surprise waiting for him.

Whether you've been in love before or hate the concept of it completely, this film will hit you. This is coming from a person who has only ever cried during "Marley and Me" (because who wouldn't) but now has another movie to add to the list.

Although there is a lot of country music in this movie (by a lot, I mean the whole thing), this is a movie that will make you realize that even if you're lost right now, you'll always find your way home.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
