On Sunday’s I spend a good part of the day watching the OWN Network. This past Sunday there was an Oprah Winfrey Show episode where Oprah interviewed Elizabeth Gilbert. Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of “Eat Pray Love”
“Eat Pray Love” a spiritual and personal exploration. I believe it is important to us as women to know who were are, and express who we are as women. GBF&Co is a fashion business who’s focus is understanding who we are and expressing who we are. On the Oprah Show Elizabeth Gilbert shared her daily ritual of asking herself three insightful questions.
The first question is 1. What do you REALLY REALLY REALLY want? Elizabeth says it is important to say REALLY three times or you won’t believe it. 2. What was your happiest moment of the day? The happiest moment is like keep track of what you are grateful for that day. We can all share what was our worst moment. The mind tends to focus on what is negative or bad, we have to consciously focus on what is good. 3. Change your mantra. What you repeat in your head, is your mantra rather you realize it our not. For me, I am having a horrible time with my back. As I write, my eyes tear up. I know in order to overcome it, I have to focus on what is good. When I have daily struggles with back pain, it is hard for me to think others thoughts. So I need to refine my mantra. I will Change My Mantra and share it with you daily! I hope this steps will lead to an improved quality of life.
I plan to use this post to answer these question daily. I hope some of you will join me. I would like this space to be a place where we can share who we are and what we want. Please come share your thoughts, wants and desires.
My only request is that you stay positive and reframe from any negative comments or critical observation. I would like for this to be a safe place to come, where women are willing and able to support others. Life gives to the giver and takes from the taker.
