Elizabeth Gilbert, writer and author of Eat Pray Love, recently spoke at TED talks. I have attempted to read Eat Pray Love numerous times but for "too close for comfort" reasons I have never made it out - or even that far into - Italy. After getting to hear her talk I was quite moved to pick it up and try again.
Today I have been on this creative/motivated kick. It feels good but has it's share of fears attached to it as well. Her talk gave me a sense of optimism, calmness and control. As I told my friend on the phone tonight, your story will always continue, you just need to decide how involved you want to be in it. Elizabeth's talk could not have come at a better time.
