And I look forward to seeing Julia Roberts play Elizabeth Gilbert in the movie version opening today. IMO, there is just something enchanting about Julia.
Also, as Cheslea Handler said in her monologue the other night (anyone else watch Chelsea Lately?), we'll finally stop seeing Julia stuffing her f*ing face with gelato everywhere we look. LOL. Beyond that, I think Elizabeth's writing is inspirational.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
"People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you're fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.
"The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying; the only thing more impossible than staying was leaving."
"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life."
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
