This is the last segment of this 3 part blog post series on EAT PRAY LOVE by Elizabeth Gilbert that I started on Tuesday! I hope you’ll take a look at the 2 previous posts as those will allow you to experience the quotes I found most interesting throughout the entire book in addition to this post. The Italy chapter is about finding happiness through pleasure, the India chapter is about finding happiness through a devotion to God, and the Indonesia chapter is about finding the balance between the two. Enjoy and consider reading EAT PRAY LOVE on your adventure while finding the balance between happy and healthy. 🙂 ❤
