Let Go

I was going to see X-Files this weekend. Didn't happen. I'm still planning on seeing it despite bad reviews. I like to follow my own mind on movies. I read on IMDB it got crushed at the box office. Sorry, Mulder and Scully. I had a busy weekend.I read Eat,Pray,Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I was hooked from the first page. If anyone of you read it, please share what you thought of it. I also did a card reading gig on Saturday for a bridal party which was fun. What really captured my attention this weekend I have noticed a high level of frustration with my life that I don't care for. Though I have a sunny nature, lately I've been up and down a lot more than I should.

I watched one of my favorite scenes from The Revenge of The Sith on You Tube. It's where Yoda counsels Anakin he has to let go of his attachments to things. I watched it a couple of times and said I have to do the same.I have too much attachments to how I want my life to be. Because I'm not where I want to be in many areas of my life, it's causing me to dive into fear and doubt. The only thing I can control is my own thoughts. I had a lot of things thrown at me since late Winter. I need to get quiet and focus on myself. Let go. Have faith that things are to work out.

Hi Shell!

Revenge of the Sith is my and my husband's favorite of the Star War Series! The scriptures tell us clearly that the battle is in the mind. Philippians 4:8 is one of my favorite passages in God's word. It reminds us to think on things that are just and good. I too have faced some challenges this year, including my dear sweet Mother going to heaven this past March and realize without my Saviour and my willingness to believe His word I just don't know what I would have done. You are not alone, I have this "am I where I need to be" inner talk with myself sometimes and just have to believe I am where I need to be at this moment in time. But just think girl, the best is yet to come!

What's a card reading gig? I automatically think you mean tarot cards but it may be something else.

I just want to see Mulder and Skully again, I don't care too much about the movie, I just miss them.

I've started and stopped Eat, Pray, Love a lot lately. My library books require my immediate attention, LOL, so that's what I have been focusing on. I do like it though and don't want to rush the process.

Hi Bev, I know you had your share of struggles to especially with your mom's passing. I am doing my best to keep my mind on good things and not be swayed by challenges that come you way. So cool to know you and your husband like Sith as well. Thank you for your uplifting words.

Hi Suzie,

Yes the gig was for tarot. I have been reading the cards almost nine years. I read so fast. I have a habit of devouring books. Especially if I get hooked into a book. Maybe your not in the mood to read the book. Sometimes I have to put books down and come back to them later. Mulder and Scully are a great team. I'm curious to see how they are in the movie, though.

YES - I loved that book and I actually did my own 3 day eat, pray, love retreat this spring and journaled all about it -- the pages start here if you want to read them:

Although I would love to go to Rome, India and Bali, it was cool to do a retreat here in the States with those themes on my own!

ooops - grabbed the wrong page on that last comment - here is one of the pages:

and if you go to that date in my journal, and work backwards, you will see all the pages from Eat,Pray,Love. . . .
