Book Review: Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I started reading this book about 10 years ago, when I was 30. Then I got as far as the Italy part and lost interest after that. The food bit in Italy was mouthwatering. I loved her description about the culture and the food, and how Italians have the art of enjoying life, down to a T.

This time round I finished the whole book. Maybe because I am going through a divorce myself or maybe because I gained a lot more life experience in the past 10 years. I appreciated the meditating and finding yourself part of the book much more. It made me realise that is important to find oneself in this busy world and knowing your own self worth. Becoming quiet, calming down and enjoying the moment. Appreciating all the good things around you and becoming fully aware of your surroundings.

In the third part she meets her new love. Very interesting new phase of her life as well. Opening up your heart for a new person can be very difficult after a break up.                    I know this book falls into the chick lit section, but it is also very inspirational and has a lot of information about the culture of the three countries she visited, which were Italy, India and Indonesia. Those three countries gave her very different things. Italy fed her stomach, India fed her spirit and Indonesia fed her heart.

I can recommend this book. I am at the moment reading the follow up book to this one called: Committed. A review will follow shortly. Thank you 😉
