Julie & Julia

Just watched the movie, Julie & Julia on instant play Netflix tonight with my husband and daughter. I enjoyed it very much because it was funny, inspiring, and more because I can relate with Julie about a lot of things like living in Queens, wanting to be a writer, and starting things and not finishing them- that is me! Though I hope that one day I would be able to figure out what I really want to do in life and be able to prove it to everyone, just like Julie Powel.

From the movie, I am assuming that Julie and I are about the same age. However, she is now and successful and well-known writer and here I am in my mid thirty’s and a nobody. BUT as they say... It Is Never Too Late... I am a big believer in that.

There’s a part in the movie though that hit me and maybe the difference between Julie and I. She said that both Julia and her cook because they love their husbands so much. Well... I cook because I need to but I also love my husband. Does it mean I love my husband less because I don’t cook with joy? Well... thinking about it, whether or not, I guess I should think about it that way, that I do it to please the one I love so that I will be successful in cooking. I think that is the answer to my worries... to love what I do. I think that if maybe I give myself more credit in the things I do, I wouldn’t give up on them easily and be able to finish something and be a master of it as well. The problem with me is that I get interest on one thing, I try it, and then that’s it. I don’t go further. Does that make sense to you at all?

Anyway, I hope that after today, I would be able to write a blog everyday. I’ve had a lot of excuses for not writing but enough of that. And another thing I have on my list is to try my best to enjoy cooking because I love my husband. But I am definitely not writing a cookbook...
