Elizabeth Gilbert’s memorable memoir Eat, Pray, Love is the story of a woman’s search for love and freedom miles away from her home, in foreign lands. While the desire to travel and be like Gilbert might be hidden in all of us, not everyone can afford the time and resources to head anywhere. But that doesn’t mean the search for love and freedom stops there, on the contrary home is the best place to begin. The idea rests on the understanding that the place we live in is invariably the closest, more or less most comfortable environment available and plays a key role in shaping our lives. This is not an epic journey on the road of self-discovery we’re talking about. It’s very much rooted in our daily lives as ordinary people. It’s about taking on life right from where it begins – your home.
