“What have I come here to do with my life? You can choose to ignore that question, or you can pursue it. The pursuit is the beginning of the journey.” Elizabeth Gilbert
Most women know Elizabeth Gilbert as the author of Eat, Pray, Love, the woman who took a year to travel the world in pursuit of her purpose. While most of us don’t have the luxury of running away for a year the way she did, we do have the power to change our lives in significant ways. We just have to put one foot in front of the other and begin the pursuit, even if the only steps we can currently take are to start making a plan.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin
Everyone has a calling on their life, a reason they are here. Many of us choose to ignore the call out of fear, or give up on the call at some point along the path because the road becomes too difficult. Elizabeth shares how extraordinary life can become if you hang on tight through the rocky terrain and see it through to the pinnacle of your calling. Give it a listen. You’ll be glad you did.
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” Anais Nin
