"You Have To Live Spherically"

One of my favourite movies is "Under The Tuscan Sun", which tells the story of Frances Mayes, who after a terrible divorce goes on a ten day tour of Tuscany, courtesy of her friend Patti. There, she buys a run-down villa Bramasole and tries to re-start her life.

One line that stands out is when Catherine tells Frances, "You have to live spherically, in many directions. Never lose your childish enthusiam...and things will come your way." Sometimes when times are dark, these words come back and I try to think and put them into practice (I don't always succeed though). When you think about it, it is very good advice - I guess it means accepting yourself for what you are and trying your best at whatever you do. Try and enjoy life and always try to see something good in everything.

There is another line I like and have used this as an example sometimes. Seeing that Frances is sad again, Signor Martini says to her, "Between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come."

It's about having faith is't it? Believing in yourself, and having faith that your hopes and dreams will work out.
