Eat, Pray, Love Life (US Ed.)

Elizabeth Gilbert wrote, "To find the balance you want, this is what you must become. You must keep your feet grounded so firmly on the earth that it's like you have four legs instead of two. That way, you can stay in the world. But you must stop looking at the world through your head. You must look through your heart instead. That way, you will know God."

The recent trip I had to the US opened my eyes, that life can be just so unfair but it can still be beautiful, if we decide to accept and live with the everyday reality. My heart was bursting with emotions before leaving- pain, joy, gladness, gratitude, disappointment, weariness. But all these melted and now I find myself at a steady pace, living each day one moment at a time.

I ate, I prayed, I loved. I enjoyed my vacation with my brother who I haven't seen for one year and seven months, my aunt who is so dear to me, and her family, with my cousins, friends, and with myself. The whole time I was having a conversation with myself in my head, on where the road has taken me, on where I'm headed, on God's plan. It feels nice to be at peace, away from all the worries, even if it's only for a couple of weeks, and to surround yourself with love from special people in your life.

And now some pictures during my own Liz Gilbert moment.
