Eat. Pray. Love. #love
Watching this movie reminded me of somethings. Of why i want to travel, of why being somewhere new, and learning new things fascinates me. I wish I had the money to be able to get on a plane and travel for a year. I hate the feeling of not knowing where my life is going. That feeling of yearning for so many things that it makes my head spin. And I’m not talking about men. I am talking about that yearning for something new and exciting. That yearning to find yourself. A part of me feels like Liz from the movie. For so long I’ve based myself through the eyes of boys. The way I acted & dressed. The fact that when i was about to do something I’d think ‘what would he think about this?’ ‘would he approve of this?’ ‘would he like this?’. I don’t know when i stopped thinking & doing for myself. until I moved to FL. Making that move was the first thing I’ve done for myself in a very long time, or at least that i remember. I stopped thinking how everyone else would be affected by the move & just thought about my future. Of how my life would turn out if i stayed or if i left. & in the end I was right to leave. I haven’t found myself completely but I’m starting to get that balance back in my life. I think that’s why the bigger part of me can’t wait to get back to FL.
We spend our who lives worrying about the what if and’s & butts of our future. Trying to predict it. Always over thinking it. Rather then living every moment you have in this life to the fullest, as if tomorrow may never come, we ponder about what are life might be like a year from now, even a month from now. Somewhere along the way we stopped basking in the bliss of the now. Can you stop everything your doing right now, in this minute, and truly say your happy about where you are? Of what you accomplished? Of who you have in your life? Are they worth being there? If you can answer these questions with a yes then your on the right track. No one knows where there life will lead. But by the decisions you make, and the people you meet & keep in your life, that’s a good start to deciding whether your future will be worth it.
So starting here, live every moment as if its your last. Bask in the bliss of the now. And don’t regret anything, because like i always say…
everything happens for a reason <3
We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future, as if figuring it out will cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes. But one thing is certain when it finally reveals itself. The future is never the way we imagined it. [greys anatomy]
[re-post from an old blog I had before this one, I will be posting a few from an old blog that I loved & don’t want to get lost. I want them to be shared with all of you. I want them to make an impact for others rather than just being there but no shown. Hope you like!]
Looks great words Eat Pray Love. Very unique book, ow is that a book?
Haven't seen this movie but all of my friends are raving for this book haha
OK is it bad that I have never seen Eat Pray Love?? I wonder if it's on Netflix so I can change this 😉
I definitely agree with you on the travel part, I don't really have the time or resources to be able to travel whenever to wherever either. I love the idea of living in the moment, being who you are and going out to venture out for your dreams!
Thanks for sharing. It is important to live in the moment and it is also important to plan.
Everything does happen for a reason and some are good and bad. Great quote and I'll have to see that movie!
I still haven't seen the movie Eat, Pray. Love. I read the book and just wasn't that impressed. I'll have to watch it to see if I like it more than the book. Love the quote from Grey's!
That quote is amazing. We do spend so much time planning the future that sometimes, we neglect the present!
I've learned to appreciate what is happening in the moment and take what's next when it's time. I don't feel like I'm living if I don't.
I loved this movie, in fact its what inspired me to travel! Everything happens for a reason, like you said, it might just take a while to figure out what that reason is
I still have not seen this movie!! I would love to be able to travel more but with three kids our resources are limited.
I've not seen the movie yet, but to answer if I'm truly happy? Mostly…like you, there's still things I wish I could do right now…but obviously it's not time yet 🙂
Well for me the future is now–I am semi retired (thankfully) live where I want to live (NY) and I have absolutely no regrets about the past. What is done is done-move on! I've had lots of adventures in my life and enjoyed every second of them – at least in retrospect!
I've never seen or read Eat, Pray, Love. I really need to change that. It seems like such an inspirational book.
I liked Eat Love Pray, and it does make you want to travel. Of course, most things make me want to travel… I wish I'd have known my passion for it years ago, I'd have carved a career trajectory out of it. 🙂
I couldn't agree more – everything happens for a reason. I believe there is a plan for us all and we just have to make it work.
I too love the quote from Grey's anatomy, our future is not predestined it evolves and changes with every decision we make in our current state. It's important to live for now and not the what might be in the future as thats not assured yet.
Love that quote (Meredith's voiceovers are the BEST part of Grey's!) As I've gotten older I've definitely learned to live int he moment and stop worrying so much about things I can't predict <3
