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 ?

    I loved the idea of writing posts for #100HappyDays. I look forward to reading more of them.
    I loved the book, Eat. Pray. Love, but the movie, not so much!
    Travelled to Italy and stuffed my face silly, with The Husband in tow:)) it was more fun:)))
    I’ve been indulging in Dolce Far Niente ? for a while now. When I get bored of the term I switch to ‘Lotus-eating’. Sounds as exotic, if not more!:))))

    Awwwww. The sweetness of doing nothing. The one thing from Eat, Pray, Love that stayed with me is the Eat. Taking a conscious break makes you reconsider everything, especially priorities. It’s so easy to just get caught up in the madness that is everyday life. You need to sit back and really do nothing.
