I say was because I’ve now joined the LG fan base, however it was a long time coming. Like many women (and some men) I read Eat Pray Love. Unlike many women I wasn’t so completely consumed by the book that I wanted to take off around the world and find myself. I found the book really heavy going and found Elizabeth to be so self absorbed that I couldn’t connect with her.
But I’ve since read Elizabeth’s articles and listened to her podcast Magic Lessons and I’ve had to rethink my initial opinion. I can see now where I can connect with her and I’m enjoying discovering all the things I missed while I was avoiding the Liz Gilbert bandwagon.
While cooking and cleaning today I listened to the Magic Lessons episode where Liz and Brene Brown talk about creativity. This is definitely my thing and I was hanging off every word, pausing the podcast to take notes and mulling over the messages.
