‘Ole!’ to you, just for having the sheer human love and stubbornness to keep showing up. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
I’m one of the gazillion mad about Liz Gilbert ever since Eat, Pray, Love. And yes, I’d love to follow in her footsteps. Well – almost…I’d rather pray in Bhutan, and I don’t want to live in Jersey. But write a book that inspires after an amazing journey across the sea? Sounds good to me.
By the way, if you didn’t read Committed, her follow-up to EPL, pick it up. She is so real and so interesting.
“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow – this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”
Yet while her talk on relationships and the inner evolution is amazing, I must say that her TED Talk on Your Elusive Creative Genius has long been one of my favorites. She is humble, she is funny, she is energized, she is human – all of those things I am so grateful for. And as a fellow creative, I get what she’s saying, and take so much from it. I am learning to say YES to all that is about to be unleashed inside of me, and hope that you will watch this and smile.
Be inspired, be motivated, let everything flow…and enjoy!
