I've only begun reading the overrated, incredibly famous, best-seller Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love. Before reading it, I've had all sorts of testimonials from people regarding the book / movie. Good, bad and mixed. I watched the movie before the book, and quite frankly even so, it really did made an impact on me. Most of the time I'm satisfied with my own judgement so I must say, no biased opinions have made its way to mine about this piece. Some say it's shallow, some say it's necessary, I can only say that.... it's what I could use.
After the movie, I made some very distinctive choices that I will not disclose here. For one, I've decided that it's high time that I make decisions that would be good for my soul. And that I needed to know who I am and who I want to be, rather than keeping afloat with what life has somehow predetermine for me.
Some changes in life are necessary, some are compulsory. Often not, we do not see the light at the end of the tunnel when all things are beginning to confuse us, but I've discovered the wonders of calming myself down and making decisions based on a sound and a more wholesome perspective.
In a somewhat domesticated journey to recognize the things that make me happy, I realised I am so very traditional in more ways than one, and I am truly happy being so. It wasn't the environment, and even if it was, I quite liked the domesticated environment I am surrounded with.
I hope everyone will find their way, sooner or later. I hope everyone will be contented with who they are, sooner or later :)
