Eat Pray Love - The Movie Preview

A couple of years ago...almost exactly a couple of years ago, I read this book by Elizabeth Gilbert.  Looking back at my very brief entry about it, I was definitely still in the beginning stages of my transformational journey in this life.  Seems odd considering the significant amount of personal development work I had persevered through in the years prior, but as the journey is never ending I like to think of my immersion in the programs and events in the world of Tony Robbins as the kickstart to a lifelong process.  I was so moved by this book that for Christmas 2008, I purchased a copy for every one of my girlfriends who had not yet read it.

It's now two years later. I've had many dreams realized in that time, but I've lost others.  My spirit has been broken, and I'm not quite sure how to get it back. It feels like something fundamental within me was fractured, I haven't yet found the cure, and I know it's not healing on its own. Much like "Elizabeth" expresses in the movie preview I've included in this post, I used to have an appetite for my life...and it's just gone. Granted, there have been a few moments where my appetite has re-emerged but my ability to "fake" it has also become Oscar worthy. I don't find it a coincidence that this story is appearing again in a very prominent way at this time in my life.  The few of you that know me know that in these periods of my life I tend to hide away in a movie theater, escaping reality for a bit into someone else's life while my brain and soul continue to process what's happening.  Hello movie!

What would you do if you knew you could not fail? I actually have the time and opportunity to not only ponder this but to "do" as well, and I have no idea. Still.  In the meantime, I'm going to re-read that book, shed things/people/thoughts that no longer serve me...and anticipate this movie's release.  Here's a little sneak peak:
