What I Learned - Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
What I learned:
I really like this description...a different take but a great explanation.
Love to think of that wee internal voice taking care of you. How many of us lie awake looking at the ceiling in the middle of the night and worrying, when all we really need to do is go back to sleep!!
Love this too, always stop and take the time to look at the world through your heart and really take everything is. There is always something amazing to be noticed.
One of the best descriptions of depression I think I have ever read. It happens like that, just sneaks up on you...and my wee addition to this analogy - in your head you know that logically you should be enjoying all the things the woods have to offer, the view, the sights, the smells, the nature...but it becomes impossible and you can't transfer that logic into your heart.
LOVE!!!! I will always strive to be my imperfect self and never, ever an imitation, or what other want me to be - and I will make sure that my daughter believes this too. It took me a long time to get to here, but I want her to have the confidence to live her "imperfect & clumsy" life NOW!
Yes, just yes.
I love this as well. these are the best kind of people in your life, and you should seek them out, and strive to be this for others. Soul mates don't have to be a romantic thing either, at least that's what I believe - it can be your best friend, or even your child, or a teacher. It's just that person who sees into your soul, sees all your potential and encourages you endlessly to be the person they know you can be!
Just Let it go - difficult at times, but so worth it in the end.
Get that backbone on show and MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!
Stop, breathe, look around, take some time and see what exciting perfections lie around you!
Live for now, don't worry about how wrong you think it could go, or how it might end, or where it is going. Just enjoy life now. You could come up with a hundred different scenarios for your future, and still not have one anywhere close what will eventually happen. Go with it! Live it! Enjoy it!
I think this one may have to be a whole blog post to itself another time! Watch this space!
Look for the little bits of happiness in everything - if you really start looking you will be amazed at how much of it you find!
I know this book has had mixed reviews but I really enjoyed it (but them I am already full of an unquenchable wanderlust and this sort of adventure really appeals to me). The film, on the other hand, not so much!!!!
