Eat, Pray, Love: My Review of Part 1

First off, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert is an amazing book. If you haven’t read it I recommend it with my whole heart! Did I mention I’m only a hundred pages in? I have changed just by reading those 100 pages, if only just to know that someone else has felt how I’ve felt. For those of you that haven’t read the book (or seen the movie) it is divided into three sections about the three places Elizabeth visits Italy, India, and Indonesia. Each place holds a different meaning to her, each place changes her in a miraculous way. I don’t want to ruin the book for you but there are two excerpts so far that have touched me on a very deep level. The following excerpt is about her addiction to love and being in love.

Self-Forgiveness: Forgive Your Mistakes

“Forgiveness doesn’t mean allowing the painful behaviors or actions of another to continue in your life. Sometimes, forgiveness means letting go. You forgive them and release them. Taking a stand and setting healthy boundaries are often the most loving things you can do—not only for yourself, but for the other person as well.” – Louise L. Hay Forgiveness, oh how I loathe you sometimes. Forgiveness seems to be the theme of my life lately and what a huge theme it has turned out to be. Besides love, I’m hard-pressed to think of any other theme that so prominently weaves its way in and out of lives. It is needed as much as love. Love can not survive without forgiveness. This past week I’ve allowed myself to work on forgiveness, whether it be towards myself or towards others. It has involved tears, it has involved laughter, but most importantly it has…

How do you Love?

I wanted to start off by talking about that oh-so-wonderful thing we call love. We hate feeling it, love feeling it, feel it on different levels, in different ways, for inanimate objects, pets, ideas, people. How do you love? What a diverse and strange feeling/emotion/word. It’s kinda awesome! When we’re children love comes so easily and naturally. We fall in love almost instantly with things, people, and places. We make best friends on the playground within five minutes just because someone is wearing our favorite color or likes ‘My Little Pony’. However, as we grow up we start to give our love grudgingly. People have to work for it. We don’t love just to love. We love because people do things for us, because they earn it. It is no longer simple and easy. Why is that? When do we get the lesson that we can’t love easily and freely?…

An Intro of Sorts

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the bloggerverse. I figured I would start off by telling you exactly what my intention is. After all, everything starts with intent. I want to help people. I want to help you, yes you, and everyone else, realize how wonderfully awesome and fantastical you are. We are all perfect, imperfect, people. Sometimes it just takes a bit of dusting off and polishing to fully realize how great you really are. Sometimes I get these huge flashes of brilliance about love, ideas, projects, people, and I’m just filled with such passion for it. Last night I realized that I have a goal in life. Previously my goal was to be happy. That still stands, my new goal is to spread enlightenment and happiness to everybody I know. I want to be who I know I already am deep down inside! I am a…
