Eat, Pray, Love


I too excited to even get my thoughts in line right now... I cannot wait for this movie! 2 summers ago I read this book & 2 things happened to me

  1. I got into a total faith crisis, but that's not really the point right now.

  2. I almost ran away. Seriously.

I loved this book so much that I started looking up flights to India & scheming ways to support myself for a year while I travel. Although I personally learn most about myself when I'm at work (not necessarily at work in my job, but just when I'm being of service) so in my mind the answer was pretty clear: missionary. It sounds better than "runaway" & I'd spend my time helping & loving people while I have a crazy adventure & change my life. Jackpot!

You might have guessed I didn't follow through. Mainly because of student loans... honestly they're the 1 roadblock I couldn't figure out how to get around. And I'll be paying them off til I'm 32 or so. *sigh* So no missionary for me. Yet. But regardless, I loved loved LOVED this book & cannot wait to see the movie. Maybe I'll be inspired again & this time figure out a way to make it really happen. Or maybe I'll just enjoy it for exactly what it is.


  1. I guess I know what I need to read! With two kids and school, I rarely read anything that's not a textbook. BOOOOO

  2. Ohmygosh, please do! It's just wonderful.... (Ok Lauren, stop gushing...)
