Eat, Pray, Love

by Emilie
(Washington)

This movie, along with the book, forever changed my life. At the time I was going through a horrible breakup, and happened across the movie late one night while attempting to sleep. This movie was extremely spiritually moving for me. Up until that point, I had basically just been living my life according to what I thought it should be, rather than what I wanted. I had no idea who I was, what I wanted, and I was in no way at peace with anything in my life.


As I watched the movie I found myself relating to the lead character, Liz Gilbert. She went through a painful divorce, I was going through a painful breakup. A major chapter in my life had come to a close, and I knew I needed to find myself. I was lost in a sea of hopelessness, living my life based on the American ideal. As she spent time in Italy, I found myself making my own list of how I could learn to just sit back and relax every now and then. Enjoy life a little more.

During her time in India, I again found myself looking at ways I could become more in touch with my spiritual self, so to speak, and live life simply. Working hard, but using that time to become at peace with myself and the world around me. Finally during her time in Indonesia, I found myself watching how she used her lessons in Italy and India to enjoy life, as well as learning new lessons in patience and giving to those in need. I took note of this, and made my own list of ways I could do that, right here at home as well.

As a result of watching this movie, I not only began my own journey of self-discovery, but was able to start getting over my now ex-boyfriend. I'm still working on my lists of improvement and self-discovery, but I am a far different person than I was a year ago, and it's all thanks to this movie. A story that I could relate to on some level, and whose lessons I could use to give myself peace. To this day, when I'm feeling like I'm at war with the world once more, I put the movie on or grab the book and am reminded that life is a journey, and that the only way to overcome anything is through work, finding joy in the little things, and being selfless. Then I am able to return to my journey of self-discovery once more. I am able to eat, pray, and to love.
