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!
