Stephanie Zimbaldi asked Elizabeth Gilbert:

Hi Liz! I just saw you in Ridgewood. What an amazing night! Didn't get to ask my question so here it is; what is the most important thing a young woman should do in the quest to find herself. I am turning 25 in July and have vowed to spend one whole year doing things I have never done before in hopes to figure out who I really am. Any suggestions?

Elizabeth Gilbert Hi Stephanie! I always tell women, "Don't do what I did; Ask what I asked." You need to find your own questions, and then follow them with all your heart. The questions I asked were, "What did I come here to earth to do? Who did I come here to be? What am I willing to give up, in order to become who I need to be? How am I standing in my own way? What do I want to do with my one wild and wonderful life?" Your answers will be different from anyone else's, but they will take you to the right place. Good luck!
