"Be the hero of your own journey!"
"Go on a min-quest!"
"Ask yourself, what stirs you, what moves you, what interests you?... Point yourself in that direction, curiosity is going to lead you to your very own life."
Those are some of the nuggets from Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert that she shared for a story I wrote about her upcoming appearance. She's one of Oprah Winfrey's featured trailblazers on Oprah's The Life You Want tour which rolls into Miami this weekend.
I had a chance to chat with Elizabeth during a stop in Miami. As expected, she was gregarious and gracious and had always something positive to share as she did in her book which I read mostly on my gym's ellypitcal machine when lived in Boston. I also remember being the only proud (and giddy) dude at the AMC movie theater in Braintree during a Sunday matinee screening of the movie in Aug. 2010. Welcome to Miami, Elizabeth!
