15 Days of Optimism: Il dolce far niente

In the movie “Eat. Pray. Love.” the concept of Il dolce far niente is explained.

The simple translation is:

“The sweetness of doing nothing.”

For me it is learning to be still and at peace without having to be busy thinking or busy doing.

It’s a wonderful concept and seems so simple in theory. But in a fast paced American society, practicing such a concept can prove difficult. Still I managed to achieve some form of that today and it was enjoyable! 🙂

Let’s eat! Let’s pray! Let’s love! And let’s find the sweetness and beauty all around us!
