The Physics of the quest: 30 Days

This blog post is based on two things really, the first being that I recently watched Eat, Pray, Love again for the I don’t know how manieth time. I’ve lost count really but I still love the complex simplicity with which that movie is written and how relatable the main character’s struggle is throughout the movie. Secondly, that and the fact that I have on several occasions recently been accused of being ‘too indrawn’ and ‘not personal enough’. This post is the first in a 30 day blog challenge series of posts titled ’30days of me’. A series I discovered through another blogger after I googling my favourite Eat, Pray, Love quote, which reads:

“I’ve come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call “The Physics of The Quest” — a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: “If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared – most of all – to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself… then truth will not be withheld from you.” Or so I’ve come to believe.”

I love this quote mostly because I have learned it to be true. And so I’m hoping to not only revive my writing but also to achieve an element of self discovery over the next 30 days. The challenge is really simple, please re-blog it if you like.
