I didn’t want to post two Elizabeth Gilbert posts in a row, but I’ve been a bit of a mess lately. Not in a worrying, shit’s-falling-apart type of way, just a bit scattered, unanchored, unsettled. It’s been frustrating, but instead of fighting it, I finally decided to own it. Sometimes we just have to allow ourselves to feel things, to go with it, and to trust that it’s really okay to not be type A all the time. Ahem… Easier said than done! But this little gem made me laugh, and, if you’re also a bit of a mess, maybe it will bring a smile to your face too! Namaste.
Rebirth of Lisa has many more quotes about, well, everything. She’s also just had a book published, The Mistreatment of Zora Langston, so please check her out!
This week’s Words Crush Wednesday is by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ (this book was the inspiration for my blog’s name). What I take away from this quote is that it’s okay to have fractures, because the darkness makes us appreciate the light.
I took this photo in Arniston and I was struck by its beauty, that, despite a significant crack that separates the rock into two pieces, they’re still part of a whole. I thought it was the perfect embodiment of this quote. Let the light shine brightly, people, embrace it, allow it in, and realise that you’re so much more than the crappy things that have happened to you. Namaste.
