My Take: Eat, Pray, Love
“Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, LoveTypically of me - two years after the movie release and 3 years after seeing the book lying around my house - I finished reading Elizabeth Gilbert's 'Eat, Pray, Love'. This is primarily because I was reading other things, living life and I was, to be frank, lazy as hell.
She is funny, and fierce and lost and relateable . She voices fears that many of us have but are too afraid to admit. She questions and argues and her pain is REAL. She is open about her shortcomings and frank about her lack of direction. She gives you the assurance that no one is as together as they seem, and most of all lets you know that it is okay to not want what you have - even if it's what everyone else wants.
