Eat, Pray, Love

I’m currently in the middle of reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, and it’s a really entertaining book. It’s written almost like a novel in style. I like her writing voice and can tell that she is passionate about writing. She’s good at laying out a scene and explaining her thought processes and actions in a way that the reader can easily picture.She eats in Italy, prays and meditates in India, and finds love in Indonesia. I’m currently in the middle of the india section of the book and it’s hard to put down.

It’s really hard to stop reading it, because it’s written in such a relateable way, as if it could be your own journey that she is describing. I keep thinking what an amazing thing it is that this author did, travelling to these countries all alone in order to find herself, and to discover the truth about herself and how she sees the world. That sounds like something most people just dream about, people like me.

My favorite quote from the book so far (which is actually a quote within a quote):

It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection

-The Bhagavad Gita
