The Art of Creativeity and Elizabeth Gilbert

I saw Eat, Pray, Love this weekend, and I am freshly inspired! I read the book a couple of years ago, and it greatly influenced my creative journey. I started forgiving myself, letting things that didn’t matter go, and smiling with my heart instead of my head. Maryanne, one of my fellow students in the ceramics class I am taking, was talking to me about the book and Elizabeth Gilbert and creativity and she referred me to this video. I just love it and I know you will too. Let me know what you think of it. Ala and Olé!

    Thank you for sharing this. It is inspiring, releasing, and freeing. I have passed it along. Again thank you and Ole!

  • Thanks so much for this! I had seen her on an interview, and after viewing this, I can re-think with a more generous heart some of my observations and “opinions” . I love the “Ole” to us, for showing up and up and up, for our basic and most humble humanity.

    I have not had the chance to see this movie but I have read the synopsis and feel like it relates to my last trip overseas. I traveled to the Philippines alone and had time to reflect on my busy life here in California. I learned a lot about myself while I was away from my family, forgave myself for not spending enough time to just be me, and immersed myself in a culture that I have not been able to experience because of my busy life. It was a rewarding experience and helped me appreciate the simple life.

    Although I haven’t seen the movie yet, I found this to be extremely inspirational. I enjoyed this and have seen a different kind of art and creativity. It makes me want to re-think the way I am living my day-to-day life. Thank youfor posting this!

  • I have heard from a lot of people that this movie was really good, but I never went to see it. i guess I’ll have to wait to rent it. Its easy in life to let the little things bother you, but when you really take a step back, those little things are just little things, and you can’t let them bother you. I like how you said “smiling with my heart instead of my head.” If we all could do that, that would be amazing.

  • Thank you for sharing! I was glued to the screen the whole time. She’s well spoken and she is very positive. I haven’t had the chance to watch the movie, but I will watch it when it comes out on DVD. Her message was great and inspiring. Ole!

    I have been contemplating on watching this movie. I enjoyed reading you blog. We are always so busy with our careers and daily routines that we sometimes forget to appreciate life. We only have one life and we need to live it to the fullest. After reading this blog, I am going to watch the movie!

  • Emily Bliss:

    This looks like a really interesting movie to watch! I, for one, love Julia Roberts and I heard the book was amazing. After reading this blog, it made me want to go see the movie even more! Thank you for sharing with us!
