Elizabeth Gilbert on Super Soul Sunday
by Louise D'Allura on January 1st, 2015

If you haven't had a chance to watch these videos - watch these in the New Year.  I promise you this is a GOOD use of your time!

There are two episodes that feature the lovely author - Elizabeth Gilbert.  If you haven't read her 2006 memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, STOP AND GET IT RIGHT NOW - then come back and watch these two episodes!  Basically through sharing her own story in Eat, Pray, Love Liz Gilbert  gives us courage to think about what it means to find and fulfill your life's purpose - the whole messy shebang of it! Knowing there are obstacles in your way, that are part of your journey makes it a bit easier! They are there for a reason - we all know stories need a bit of drama!  While it can be exhausting - they are necessary for a character's growth - OUR growth!

In these two interviews with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday Liz talks about a lot of things:
  • lessons she learned from her year long quest around the world,
  • the stages of the "hero's journey" and that we are all hero's of our own story.
  • following your passion - or at least those things that you're curious about expect to be challenged!
  • Taking the small steps that can lead to big transformations
  • Perfectionism
  • Soul mates
Enough from me - watch and enjoy!!  I know you will LOVE IT! Once you've watched it I want you to write a little action plan!  
  1. What steps can you take everyday to be more courageous?
  2. What can you do to incorporate fun size adventures in your life - you don't need to take a year off for your own quest (what a relief!)?
The videos are done in snippets so you can watch a little at a time:

Now, I would love to hear from you after you've watched them!    If you’ve found this video of interest, please share it with your friends!  I really do appreciate you taking the time to read and share.
