Gosh! How we all dived in to watch this movie when it was released. Eat Pray Love, the movie and the novel encapsulated some essential life lessons about self-discovery, food, love, and spirituality. The Coronacoaster has left us all feeling uncertain and anxious about our career, life, and even ourselves. But guess what? We can all find a little hope, and maybe even some life lessons in the words of Elizabeth Gilbert.

While the ‘new normal’ is a hard adjustment, these motivational quotes from our favorite movie, will restore our faith, strengthen us and help us love ourselves (and pizza).

Life Lessons On Strength ?

“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

“You’re wishin’ too much, baby. You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone oughtta be.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

Life Lessons On Love

“It’s still two human beings trying to get along, so it’s going to be complicated. And love is always complicated. But humans must try to love each other, darling. We must get our hearts broken sometimes. This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

“To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything

“In desperate love, we always invent the characters of our partners, demanding they be what we need of them, and then feeling devastated when they refuse to perform the role we created in the first place.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”

Life Lessons On Self Discovery ?

“I think I deserve something beautiful.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

“The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That’s where you need to go.”

Life Lessons On Spirituality ??

“There is a reason they call God a presence – because God is right here, right now. In the present is the only place to find Him, and now is the only time.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

“There’s a crack (or cracks) in everyone… that’s how the light of God gets in.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

In conclusion, we love “Eat, Pray Love.”

Life is undoubtedly filled with moments of happiness, despair, peace, laughter, brokenness, and even gloom. But these are the moments that teach us about discovery, strength, love, and, most of all, spirituality. In our weakest moments, we can truly understand the afflictions and infirmities of everyone around us. Our pain teaches us what joy is, and our suffering teaches us empathy. To unearth peace, we must find God and learn to accept & love ourselves.
