"Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend." ~Elizabeth Gilbert

"There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life--- whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts." ~Elizabeth Gilbert

"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." ~Elizabeth Gilbert

Storytelling brought to the cinema... wonderful.

This summer enjoy the movie, Eat. Pray. Love. with Julia Roberts as author, Elizabeth Gilbert.

"Remember you are the writer of your own happy ending." Amy Sperry Faldet

This looks like a great movie, AMy! I do admire Julia Roberts as an actress; she has shown her chops as not just a beautiful movie "star", but a serious actor. The subject is worth checking out! Have a magical day, Anita
