Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Wishful Wednesday: Book Character


This week's topic is ....
'I wish' .... I could play a character's role in a book and it would be Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love!
Include the fictional characters name and novel too!


This might be my new favorite book, even though I read it over a year ago. I'm sorry Liz isn't exactly a character, as this book is a memoir, but I couldn't think of another character I'd rather be right now.

I admire her strength in admitting and then doing what is best for her. I admire her courage in her travels. I've been in painful situations like hers, but I've never had the strength and courage and clarity to do what she did. I would love to pamper myself in Italy, devote myself in India and love myself in Thailand. The experiences she had, the friends she made, the things she saw... I want it all!

I love it when I find a book where I completely relate to the main character! You can't ask for a better read. Too bad you can't have the rest too, huh?
