Like for many independent women, the book "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert changed my life. And just when I thought it couldn't be any better, the book "Eat, Pray, Love Made Me Do It: Life Journeys Inspired by the Bestselling Memoir" was a game changer.
As a personal development junkie, I live and breathe books, podcasts and audiobooks all day every day.
When I come across a great book, like "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert, I often read it twice...as in right after I finish the last page. Then I get the audio book so I can listen to it while driving or just lounging around the house.
Yes, it's that inspiring, powerful and healing! The wisdom gained from this book is priceless.
In her early thirties, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything, including a husband, country home, and successful career. Yet, she was consumed by panic and confusion.
Regardless of our past life experiences, we can all relate to feeling "off" and unfulfilled at one point or another.
Elizabeth Gilbert details her story of how she left behind all these external benchmarks for success, and set out to explore three different aspects of her nature: pleasure in Italy, devotion in India, and on the Indonesian island of Bali.
Here are my favorite inspiring book quotes from "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert:
“Do not apologize for crying. Without this emotion, we are only robots”
“When the karma of a relationship is done, only love remains. It’s safe. Let go
"To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life"
“If you clear out all of that space in your mind you would have a door way”
“You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone oughtta be”
Feeling lost? Stuck at an unfilling job? Then it's time to take action towards living in alignment with your truth.
Mental health is wealth.
This includes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. Our mental health affects how we think, feel, and act every day.
That's why, three years ago I resigned from my corporate career to work on my mental health and wellbeing.
It was one of the best decisions of my life.
