We could all stand to be unnerved, so states Liz Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love. In the movie based on the hugely successful novel by Elizabeth Gilbert, a woman who seemingly had it all, gives up her comfortable life and decides to travel the world to search for her heart's desire. Liz's search takes her to Italy, India and Indonesia where she learns that luxury is not always a mark of success, and that letting go may be the one thing you need to do to hold on to what is truly important to you.

The climb to the top of the ladder is long and often exhausting, and it's not unusual that we lose ourselves in the journey. The lessons in Eat, Pray, Love are gentle reminders of how women, who are now capable of truly having it all, should never forget just what makes them beautifully, astoundingly human.

As the movie adaptation of the hugely successful novel by Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love gives us a few lessons to help us make the most of who we truly are.
