eat pray love has inspired me.
has made me look at my life in a whole new way.
God has a plan for me.
not on my time, but his time.
and i'm ready for the journey.
i'm ready to trust.
i've gained that happiness back.

eat pray love quotes.
"This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something. "

"You are, after all, what you think. Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions."

"Eventually everything goes away."

"You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control."

"Someday you're gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You'll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing..."

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it."

and, believe in LOVE again....
i figured i would start reading the actual book that has been sitting on my book shelf for quite sometime.
this is exactly what i needed. exactly.
i'll look back and all of this will be a memory. you will be a memory. but i now know it's okay to miss you, it is... but then let it go. goodbye to who i used to know. hello to who i am yet to know.
love my life. and all i'm learning on a daily basis.
