Inspiring WOW (Woman of the Week) – Elizabeth Gilbert

September 30, 2013

“I’m choosing happiness over suffering, I know I am.

I’m making space for the unknown future to fill up my life with yet-to-come surprises.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

_____________________________________

 Whether you’ve read the astonishing book Eat, Pray, Love or not, it’s likely that you’ve heard the name Elizabeth Gilbert sometime in the last few years. This prolific author, motivational speaker, and all around incredible woman has made a wonderful impact on the lives of people all over the world.

Through her words, whether spoken or written, she has inspired individuals to live authentically, to honor themselves, and to chase their dreams no matter what they may be.

The thing that amazes me most about Liz Glbert is her unabashed honesty.

She will tell anyone and everyone her story, all the good parts and the bad, without shame.

It seems that through her journey she has come to a place of peace where she can say, “Here I am, you can accept me or you cannot, and that’s ok.” As women, it is often so difficult to accept others as they are, but even more difficult sometimes is the ability to accept ourselves. We often feel like we are undeserving of love, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

I encourage you today to follow Liz Gilbert’s example:

honor yourself, accept yourself, love yourself, because you absolutely deserve it.
