“This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something” Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love

Ironic to have listen to the audiobook of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love at the suggestion of someone after a brief meeting . Although I should have read it as soon as I saw the movie preview during the Back-Up plan.  The book make me think of what was happening in my life at that very moment. I felt that I needed to do what she did but at a difference pace. Elizabeth Gilbert made me realize that in the end you will love again and you will find the one when you least expect it. When I listened to this book, I did not expect to have a life changing experience that would take over my break-up and preside of the hurt at a stronger level. Needles to say out of the things I read I think the following quotes from Elizabeth Gilbert best describe how I feel.

“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.”

“Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing…”

Now I can’t wait for August 13, 2010 to see the movie.  I am sure I will enjoy the movie as much as I enjoyed listening to the audiobook.  Thanks Elizabeth Gilbert for writing such a wonderful book.
