Living passionately is what this movie is all about. I recently saw the movie called Julie and Julia and I found it funny, charming, and at times sad. It's all about living life and following your passions. It is a true story based on the lives of Julie Powell and Julia Child. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but as I watched the movie, a few things became apparent to me. Both women were following their passions with extreme focus and action.
Julie Powell was a frustrated writer, working in a non-writing job so she could pay the bills. Julia Child was a wife to a foreign diplomat in the 1950s living in Paris. Julia was searching for something to do. She wasn't sure what it was and she tried a number of things and because she loved food, she decided to learn how to cook. The movie chronicles Julia Child's life as she became the TV chef that some of you may know.
Julie Powell on the other hand, was frustrated because she didn't finish the book that she started to write and she had a hard time completing things. Also, her friends all had very successful careers and she didn't feel like she was not as accomplished as they were. She loved to cook and it was a stress reliever for her. She wanted to prove to herself and other people that she could start and finish a project. She decided to cook all of Julia Child's recipes in her book over a period of one year and blog about it.
I don't want to tell you any more than that but what really stood out for me is that both women were passionate about cooking, they set their intentions to complete a project and they took all of the actions necessary to make it come to fruition. It took time, energy, and many ups and downs for both of them but they both completed their projects. I will let you see the movie and find out what happened to Julie Powell.
What really connected for me was that the passion inside both of these ladies carried them through many good and bad times. The journey was a growth experience for both of them. When are you going to follow your passions? Start now and sign up for my free PDD report.
