Women with Passion - Elizabeth Gilbert

"I get up every single day and I do my very best with what I am and what I have.."
"My head isn't a neigbourhood you would want to walk in,  alone at night at certain times..."  Elizabeth Gilbert

YES I have on online subscription to Oprah's newsletters :). My daily good vibe injections.  One of the feautures today was a talk by Elizabeth Gilbert, gifted author of Eat, Pray, Love. A woman which many of us can relate to. She is clever, funny and knows oh so well she is only human as we all are with our shortcomings...She advocates not to beat ourselves up all the time as we are merely doing our best!
Do check out the video on to see her wonderful, up-beat talk. I can assure you it will make you smile at yourself (with maybe a little tear here and there..)!


  1. More than a little tear Mariska!

  2. I saw her speech on another blog and I felt so much better after! Thanks for sharing and I'm glad I found your blog over at the Diversion Project :)

  3. She is pretty inspiring sort of chick isn't she. Would like to think i'll read the book one day, but i'm hopeless at putting reading on priority anytime other than holidays at the beach!

    And look at that, there's Kelle from Kelle Dame (another cool blog!!). I love it when the massive internet becomes a village : )

    hope you've had a great weekend painting that studio! jx

  4. I have yet to read this book but am dying to. I know she had a spiritual experience and some amazing adventures, thanks for reminding me, Mariska!
