I adore and admire Marie Forleo. She is the epitome of personal branding, yes. But she’s living authentically – without apology. And she brings a lot of wonderful things to the world. I love that. She interviews people who do similar things too – those who pioneer new ways of thinking and doing. I regularly watch her videos and am both inspired and moved. This particular video is no exception.
You might know Elizabeth Gilbert as the writer of Eat Pray Love – but she’s written many other books, of course. And this latest one is something special. It’s fiction. But it’s a wonderful journey of overcoming adversity we created ourselves. We can come back from that. As Marie would say, “Everything is Figureoutable”
I really appreciate that message. There’s also some pretty profound discussion about the difference between depression and grief here. All in all, it’s a wonderful discussion between two friends that we, the audience, get to witness. And a great many truth bombs are dropped.
I think you’ll really enjoy watching. And then, I think you’ll really enjoy reading the book. But honestly – to me – the more interesting thing here is listening to Elizabeth Gilbert talk through her process – not just in writing a book, but in life. We could all learn a lot from her.
