Eat, Pray, Love coming to theaters!!

About two and a half years ago when I was having problems with where I was professionally, socially, physically and emotionally, mom my handed me the book Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. She encouraged me to read it and when I was finished to think back at myself, who I am, where I’ve been, what I want and where I’m going. She admitted that she hadn’t yet read the book, but from what she heard about it, it would really help me understand that I can only control so much about myself. Some things happen for a reason, others happen because you make them or want them to.

Eat Pray Love was a fantastic get-away for me. As Elizabeth discussed her travels and how they helped her to rediscover her love for life really spoke to me. It was fascinating to read this woman’s pursuit of personal self-discovery. After reading this book, so many great things started happening in my life due to my positive attitude. The main ones include marrying my best friend and love of my life, being asked to coach young girls in volleyball and the courage to start my own business as a graphic designer.

Now this amazing book is hitting the big screen!!! With Julia Roberts as Elizabeth (perfect casting!), I’m sure the movie will inspire so many more people to continue to follow their dreams. Look for it in theaters this summer!

    I look forward to seeing this as well! I read the book, and I totally related to it in more ways than one (as you can imagine). 😉 Thanks for sharing – I didn’t know it was being made into a movie either. And I absolutely adore Julia!
