I’ve seen Eat Pray Love more than once and honestly I am not a big fan of the movie in its entirety but every single time I’ve relished the whole ‘I am eating my way to happiness ‘ bit in Italy quite a bit.
Learning a new language , meeting interesting people as Julia Roberts finally buys ‘her lottery ticket’ we got a glimpse of Italy as a tourist. I particularly loved the dinner table conversations the most . And as ‘the lady looking for her word’ indulges in one more bite of gelato or picks up yet more pizza choosing ‘happiness’ over ‘guilt’ , I can’t tell you how wonderful that whole bit makes me feel.
I watched it again today to discover a term called – Dolce far Niente ,The sweetness of doing nothing .
When no one needs to tell you that you deserve a break but you put your feet up and take that call to experience happiness that I’ve been practically writing about everyday .
I may not have done my solo trip to Italy ( and many other places in my bucket list) but I can surely get myself some Dolce Far Niente 🙂
I love this picture (not from today ) but I feel it goes very well with the state of my mind & my Happy Moment for the day .
So what is the word that defines your state of mind right now ?
