Did you read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert? Sometimes I’m a little late jumping on a book train, and in this case, a lot late. Yesterday I finished the book and I have to say that, although she lost me at times (perhaps even bored me), there were some parts I found compelling and others that really resonated with me.
Isn’t that what life is all about? If everything was exciting and earth shattering all the time, wouldn’t it become too familiar and perhaps seem a little monotonous over time? Like the book, I think an enriched life is all about getting through the flat moments and enjoying the peaks. There is so much to learn on both sides of the coin.
Now that I’m finished Eat, Pray, Love, I’m looking for the next great read. To me, summer is all about the balance between relaxing and adventure and I’m looking forward to both!
Are there any books you’d recommend? What’s “hitting home” for you (or taking you outside your comfort zone)?
