Daily Prompt: Silver Screen

Take a quote from your favorite movie — there’s the title of your post. Now, write!


Eat, Pray Love is one of my favorite movies with my fav actress : Julia Roberts.

Here are some quotes, the last one is my favorite.

  • “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.”
  • “Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions.”
  • “The love that moves the sun and the other stars.”
  • “One thing I do know about intimacy is that there are certain natural laws which govern the sexual experience of two people, and that these laws cannot be budged any more than gravity can be negotiated with. To feel physically comfortable with someone else’s body is not a decision you can make. It has very little to do with how two people think or act or talk or even look. The mysterious magnet is either there, buried somewhere deep behind the sternum, or it is not. When it isn’t there (as I have learned in the past, with heartbreaking clarity) you can no more force it to exist than a surgeon can force a patient’s body to accept a kidney from the wrong donor. My friend Annie says it all comes down to one simple question: “Do you want your belly pressed against this person’s belly forever –or not?”
  • “Do not apologize for crying. Without this emotion, we are only robots.”
  • “Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face. You really need to be certain it’s what you want before you commit.”
  • “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.”

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”
― Elizabeth GilbertEat, Pray, Love

 

I met my soul mate in a place and time where everything seems to be in limbo. He was my strength, my drive, my inspiration and my light.

 I consider myself strong emotionally but in that particular time in my life, I am so blessed to have him, so thankful about our encounter.He totally showed me everything I can possibly be, transformed to who I have become. I was tempted to keep him, but …no, no, no. I am happy, thankful, content and blessed that he was part of my life.

Stay Happy and in love! Cheers!
