"Inspirational Tuesday"

**Along with my inspirational tuesday pick I also go off on a tangent..hehe..**

I am choosing Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert as my topic for "Inspirational Tuesday" because this book inspired this tattoo. This is my left foot, I used the analogy when getting this tattoo that I wanted it on my left side so that when I walked I did so with love....

A little cheesy I know, but it was my way of reminding myself to always keep LOVE in front of me as my goal, to be better at it.

There are so many great points in this book, I took away from her story an understanding about the power of prayer and listening to your inner voice. She is a wonderful story teller and does an awesome job of drawing you in and keeping you intrigued while she goes on her spiritual journey. She made me want to travel to all the places she went and experience them for myself :)

I have struggled with Faith for a while, I am such a control freak that I have the hardest time just letting go and giving it to The Man upstairs, even though my heart knows I would be better for it it's my head that gets in my way. I am getting better I believe at chipping away some of my fears, I know that I am the right path these days or at least veering towards the right path.

I am embarking on a new journey, I am going to start school on January 12, I am going for a psychology degree. I chose this path because people fascinate me, I also want to be able to help those that need it. I'm a little nervous, it's been 11 years since I have been in school! I have my first assignment already, I have to write a 300 word autobiographical essay! How do I sum up 30 years of a crazy life in 300 words... Well wish me luck, this will be interesting!

** I finished my autobiographical essay and its a little more than 300 words, it's about 510 :), but the point is I got it done!! **


  1. I have to admit I skimmed this post. I have that book on my nighstand and it is next in line to be read, so I don't want to read anything about it (other than what I already know). The tatoo is neat. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  2. So happy for you for going back to school. My degree is in Psychology, and really it can be applied anywhere. I LOVED all of my classes (except for statistics).

    Oh and I just added you to my technorati favorites!

  3. NO ONE likes statistics....Keep up the great work !!

  4. Hi!

    Psychology is an intriguing subject, and I'm so sure you'll enjoy it! It can be mighty tough when you have to dig and slog through those assignments, but what's life without a little effort?!!

    I'm a Masters in Psychology myself, and I love the respect I get from people and the excitement I feel inside thanks to the knowledge and awareness!

    Cheers & all the best!
