Ok, all you Eat, Pray, Lovers out there. Get your book out and turn to page 149. This is where Richard, the Texas yogi is telling ‘Groceries’ what a true soul mate is. I’m gonna quote some of it below, but keep reading a few more pages cuz it’s pee your pants funny. Especially when Richard tells Groceries she’s a control freak – her reaction: priceless!
…A true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you
everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own
attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most
important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and
smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever. Nah. Too painful.
Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself
to you, and then they leave. And thank God for it.
(excerpted from Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert)
Oh, and the dog and the empty tin can part – also priceless!
If you don’t have the book, drop everything and go get it! I’d loan you my
copy but as you can see I’m still reading it. Yes, I know I started reading it
weeks ago. But I’m savoring it. My favorite thing is to savor. Yup, that’s my
story and I’m stickin’ to it.
Love all, Bethie
