“God dwells within you, As You”
There are some movies that will only make sense when you see it at the right time. Eat Pray Love was one such movie. I saw parts of it when it released during my younger days in 2010. I found it dull and stopped watching mid-way, but it remained in my mind as unfinished business. Year 2018, and I had a strong sense to watch it again and loved every bit of Elizabeth Gilbert’s (Julia Roberts) journey.
