Eat, Pray, Love, What??

So, I must admit, when I first realized that the book "Eat, Pray, Love" was made into a movie, I was intrigued. Having read the book a while ago, even while hastily done, it was inspiring! I have never considered myself a person who has a knee-jerk reaction to go on a self-help binge but this book spoke to me in a "feeling, change" kind of a way.

So, over this long weekend, while contemplating life, love, family, work and friendships, I had to break down and watch this movie. Interesting.....pause....tears....oh, no! What? What this movie brought up was more surprising to me than it was to my weekend guest!! Well, I say all this to say - if you're in the mood for a movie/book that will open a well to self actualization or self discovery, then try this!

More in depth analysis to come.... In the meantime, enjoy your memorial day weekend!!

  1. A perfect and lovely quote to pull. I too just love that movie and while when I first read the book, I wasn't sure what it would be all about, I found myself thoroughly engrossed. In fact, I've been meaning to watch it again, thanks for reminding me. :)

  2. This is my favorite quote from this book... a book which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I also did a lot of self reflecting when I finished reading it. I haven't yet seen the movie. Must place it on Netflix. Have a great week!

  7. I read that book while I was going through a divorce last year and needless to say...it was the perfect timing. I've never been able to relate to a story quite so much and EG's perspective on change is, well, life changing!

    p.s. just found your blog and I love it!

  8. I have to say I didn't love the movie. I so wish I had read the book first! I'm still going to give it a shot though because so many people have said how amazing it is!
