Art Imitating Life

Julie Powell and Julia Child were of different generations and life experiences. But they were similar in a few significant ways:

Both were underemployed.

Both were married to wonderfully supportive and encouraging men.

Both felt lost until they took a risk and found their passion for food.

Both came out the other side full of joy and success.

I’ve been motivated by their journeys since watching the film Julie & Julia last winter. In fact, I found the movie so inspiring that it became the impetus behind starting this blog and finally putting into motion Live Love Life Now™.

And I’ve wanted to write a post about it ever since. But I hadn’t, until I came across the movie last night while channel surfing and took it as a sign to get re-inspired.

And I did. I was so inspired I dreamed about resigning from my day job all today. But of course I didn’t, I’m not that crazy...though sometimes I wish I were.

But I need to make that happen soon. And the only way that’s going to happen is to jump off the cliff and go after my passion.

So consider me jumping!
