Eat. Pray. Love. And the reason I blame Julia Roberts
(This post contains affiliate links)
I have watched the movie Eat Pray Love a few times now. Each time the movie ends, I want to quit my job, sale all my earthly belongings and fly off to Italy. Eat Pray Love is by far my favorite Julia Roberts movie. The way her character in a sense reminds me of myself. The writer who is stuck in her own life, unsure of who she is anymore, just knowing that something needed to change inside of her. Her passion for life, for food, was gone. She needed to ‘jolt’ herself back into living. I can connect to that emotion. A knowing that something bigger is out there.
A few years back I remember watching Eat Pray Love. I had just purchased my truck a few months before that. As the movie was ending I clearly remember thinking; ” I’ll pay my truck down, sale it and go travel.” This is why I blame Julia Roberts. 😉 The thought to leave Alaska had entered my head before. The thought of traveling Europe? Nope. I believe after watching Eat Pray Love, it sparked the fire in my soul to want to go travel.
The mature, responsible side of me, also the I need money side of me, knows that this is not possible. Not without time, planning, and saving. So for now, I will continue to dream of Italy, Paris, Ireland, London and where ever else my wanderlust soul takes me. Knowing that a year from now, I will be landing in my first foreign country.
