Eating, Praying, and Loving at SparkPeople
Saturday, August 07, 2010
I am so excited because our Fierce, Fabulous and Unstoppable Spark Warrior Team has started a Warrior Book Club and our first featured book is Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love, which I hear is an incredibly awesome read that takes you on quite a journey.
The movie is scheduled to come out on August 13th, and as a treat to us Book Clubbers, we thought it would be a great idea, as a reward for all our hard sparking, to treat ourselves to the movie after we finish the great read and compare/contrast the two in our Warrior Book Club Thread.
This couldn't come at a better time for me, since my motivation has been tested by life lately, and I've been searching for something to greatly inspire me.
The title alone speaks to some elements of life that are universal to all of us, elements that I feel have been enhanced and strengthened in my life since I joined SparkPeople, where I've learned that eating is a good thing and that food is to be savored and enjoyed; where my prayer of finding a solution to my obesity continues to be answered; where I've rediscovered not only the art of loving myself, but the gift of friendship and the joy of loving others; and where I've embarked on a journey of a lifetime and an adventure that I'll never forget and am eternally grateful for.
So if the spirit moves you and you'd like to share in some inspiration, feel free to visit our Warrior Book Club Thread... We'd love to have you join us!
