    Thank you for this. Eat Pray Love was the first book to begin to "change my Life" I really enjoyed this interview. I enjoyed to words, and not to feel like I am alone.

    I once wrote a post about "Brutally Honest". "Really there is no place in true honesty for brutality. Only authenticity. If you are speaking from a place of authenticity, you are telling YOUR truth, not your opinion, or your anger. From that place you can be honest, yet remain kind.
    Those who use “honesty” to hurt others are only coming from a place where they have fear and anger and are refusing to face their own truth.
    So lets instead be authentically honest, and remember that your truth is your own and cannot be made to be everyone's.
    Always be mindful of your intentions, motives, and motivations. Also be aware that there are always consequences. When you set out to tear down someone else's reputation it very often reflects badly on your own."

    So. Freaking. Fantastic. Brave women talking courageous and authentic practice. Everything great that happens after a fall. New perspective from looking up from a place of humility. Awesomeness.

    How validating and enlightening to hear Liz talk about divorce as a positive decision that can lead to so many better things! I was married in my mid-20s, and divorced before I was 30, and even in the midst of the feelings of shame and failure, I've always known in my heart that it was one of the best and most life-changing decisions I've ever made in my life. There was so much learning and growing for me to do in my 30s, 40s and 50s that couldn't have happened if I'd stayed in that relationship!
