  9. committed with eyes wide open.

    I just finished Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert…and boy, was it a timely book for me. I was already floored by her bestseller, Eat, Pray and Love and now this…Truth be told, however, I did not read her fiction books, such as Stern Men. Don’t ask me why but I love her two non-fictional books. What I love about them is that Ms. Gilbert is so honest, witty, self-deprecating and has a gazillion of timely insights. Well, at least for me. Yes, Committed is definitely an awesome share.

     

    Yes, I love all those insights in this book but what I love more is the efforts that Liz (we’re on first-name basis now, aren’t we? :)) made to fully understand and find something authentic in the institution of marriage to go through it again for the man that she loves. It is like she was trying to find something in that institution that fully reflects herself and resonates with what she believes in to go through it with eyes wide open and bases covered.

    And she found it and I admire her courage for going through something that has hurt her so terribly in the past but still went through it for the man that she loves. More wise and aware, however, of its joys and pitfalls, the second time around. She has pored over history books, interviewed local people in Southeast Asia to know wedding traditions and have internal debates (and I think this last one is the hardest part. I mean, try debating with yourself and see who always wins, hehehe). In the end, she found her “little corner” in this pachyderm of an institution called marriage and made herself and everyone happy.

    aside from the meaningful insights, it was all so romantic but so very real. Much like what life in love should be.
