I’m sure you’re heard of the movie “Eat, Pray, Love”, yes? I hope beyond hope that you know it was a book first. Right?!
I know there are those among you who don’t read books, or who haven’t read that particular book (don’t worry, this is not a whole post dedicated to the virtues of the book… but indulge me – I will spend a few paragraphs on it). It is not a story about Julia Roberts and her gastronomic adventures around the world.
It’s a story of an actual woman who went through the same thing that millions of women the world over go through. Significant , life changing relationship ended (in her case, in divorce). Heartache. Rebound relationship (with a younger man, I might add, meow). Life-changing decision, growth, exploration, food, extra lbs, renewal, acceptance, yadda yadda (Yes, I “yadda yadda-ed” the good part).
It was a book that really meant a great deal to me, and I took away a large life lesson, but that’s a bit more personal than this girl gets in writing.
The second best thing from that book? Oh, as if, like you don’t know.
