I Heart Pop Culture Tuesdays.
{Eat, Pray, Love on a bad, bad day.}

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

You know those days when you've just had enough? Of course you do. Well, I'm having one of them. A big, fat, terrible, no good day. I have had it. Up. To. Here. At the gym a little earlier, I almost started crying. I probably should have just gone with it and let it out, but I sucked it up. You see, I'm mad. Why? Because nobody puts Bailey in the corner. (Get it? Kathleen Bailey? Yeah, I though you would.)

Anyway, moving on... On days like today, a person needs a little inspiration. Like you, I'm sure, I loved the book Eat, Pray, Love and was really excited to hear it was being made into a film. Then I saw the trailer and then I saw it again. And again... and again. Something about it just soothes me. (Not to mention the fact that I am in love with this song by Florence and the Machine.) So, when I'm needing a little something extra, I watch this trailer and think about the things I want in my life. Not the little things. Not the petty things at work. The big stuff. The stuff that makes our lives. Love. Adventure. Experience. Travel. Spirituality. Life. Oh, and, yes, food.

"If you could clear out all that space in your mind, you'd have a doorway... And do you know what the universe would do? Rush in. Everything else will take care of itself."


  1. Yep. Watched it and died a little bit.

    One of my favorite books of ALL time.

    Let's talk about it/swoon over it over cocktails THIS WEEKEND. Deal? DEAL!

  2. oh yeah girl i got excited when i heard julia roberts was going to play her, I'm sure you are doing great, just believe in yourself that always helps me and go with your heart :)

  3. I absolutely cannot wait for this movie. The book was amazing and totally inspired me to travel more, hence, my trip to Europe in a few weeks:)

  4. this trailer makes me get teary eyed every time I watch it. Not sure why. But I can not wait for the movie to come out!

  5. I JUST started the book (literally, yesterday!) and I cannot wait to really dive into it- of course, now I'm even more excited because of this movie!

  6. YES! i loved that book with all my heart. i thought i would hate it after everything that people said about it, you know, how could it be that good? but it was definitely one of those books that lived up to its hype. and now i'm reading her book on marriage because i'm engaged but we're not doing a legal marriage. anyway, i know what you mean about needing those big picture reminders. when i stop and think about those things {and listen to florence and the machine} i feel so inspired to move forward, and all the little things sort of fall away.

    i hope your week has turned around!
