Eat, Pray, Love



This is an amazing book. For anyone out there trying to "find themselves". I suggest you read this. And if anyone knows of a place to go to learn mediation, I would love your feedback. This book is a woman's journey to Italy, India, and Indonesia. She is finding herself and I found myself with her in India. How I would love to go to India for a few months to learn the art of meditation and "not harborning unhealthy thoughs anymore".


I also started another blog 20 days ago. 20 days ago, I began a new journey to eat healthy. Not only for my body but for my mind. The blog is not "upbeat". I'm journaling my thoughts and my not so happy thoughts. I want a place that I can feel comfortable dwelling in my own self pity. The one thing I realize is when I am sad or down, I always feel as though I have to reassure everyone I will be ok. Why is this? You all know I will be fine. I know I will be fine. I realized today that I am someone who puts a lot of energy into things. Is that such a bad thing? I don't think so. I am sure this blog is making absolutely no sense to anyone but it's my way of analyzing some things I need to analyze about myself. I put a lot of effort into relationships and I think it's time I start putting more effort into my mind. I turned 36. I realized I am not where I thought I would be when I was 22 and married. This is the life I have and I have spent too many years dwelling on things that "could have been". But I have realized {a lot from reading Eat, Pray, Love} that it is time to put my energy into positive things. Anyways, I am done with the self pity crap. I need to get back to my chicken (I just over cooked my rice!).

I wish you all enough~

I'm so glad you posted about this book because I keep picking it up at Costco...then I put it down thinking, I've got plenty of books to read already. Nevermind, I'm getting it tomorrow!! That's awesome too, that you're journaling about your feelings even though they're not what everyone else wants to hear (ie. good, positive and cheery always)...best of luck with the journaling and eating! ~Kristin
