Elizabeth Gilbert’s writing, for example Eat, Pray, Love, can seem somewhat cheesy, however, I so admire any woman who can venture out on their own. It takes such courage to be alone. It can feel vulnerable at times (especially when alone in the quiet, natural world) but it is so important for a person’s head-space.
On a separate note, Gilbert being a writer, did this Ted talk on creativity that I found helpful during times of artist’s-block. It is likely her willingness to be alone that allows her such moments of clarity.
