Elizabeth Gilbert is the prolific author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic along with several other best selling books. She is also an inspiring keynote speaker. I had the opportunity to hear her speak at the NAWBO National Conference in Spokane, WA in September.
Elizabeth shared a deeply personal message about her life, her losses, and her learning. One of my favorite quotes from her talk:
"You have only one life and only one energy stream. You have to start prioritizing."
She spoke about how difficult it is to truly relax and find peace in your life until you embrace the reality of priority and boundary. Understanding that you get to decide what is sacred and that you alone must honor it before anyone else will.
Her talk was hilarious, raw, and moving. And I had the honor of getting this pic taken after her talk. Thank you, Elizabeth for your powerful message.
