“Our own bullshit"

Elizabeth Gilbert, the writer of the book Eat, Pray, Love, once wrote “I've never seen any life transformation that didn't begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullshit.”


This might sound a little harsh, but maybe the bottom line sometimes is. There is no magic wand or quick fix that will overnight change those things that we wish to experience differently and that ask a lot of energy to hold up. Whether “tired of our own bullshit” or confronted with a bigger force, we all have moments where evolution is the answer. If the bottom line is a low, the evolution eventually brings us back up again: evolution as in “feeling lighter, life becoming easier, growing more into ourself”.


Is something weighing you down? Or are you flying freely? I’m curious and always happy to hear and learn from you!
