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!
