Eat Pray Love

by Grace Njeri

Eat Pray Love

I have had this book at home at my disposal for about two years now and being the terrible reader that I am, I have always meant to read it but never got around to it. After months of telling myself how I am a busy woman with a busy life and how I can’t spare a few hours in my day to read the book, I decided to get the movie and save myself the agony. So one Saturday evening I cuddled up on the couch and played the movie Eat Pray Love!!!! Finally!!!

I did not make it past 20 minutes…like many movies. I am not an avid watcher especially at night and the only show I have managed to keep up with has been Scandal (The Fixer)

Of course I have heard a lot of buzz around the story so a few weeks ago I took up the book and decided to go through a few pages to see whether I was actually going to ever read it. I haven’t got my hands off it! If you haven’t read the book I would highly recommend that you do.

I haven’t finished reading the book but 70 pages into the book I stopped to analyze her story and it is crazy how parallel her life is compared to mine. That said, I do believe that almost all of us, at-least once in our lives have experienced the same kind of fear, joy, guilt, confusion, sadness and peace she talks about in the book.

The message from the book is finding YOURSELF! In the midst of societal pressures, that can be extremely hard and the sad truth is that you are never truly happy until you find that which gives you purpose and fulfillment.

I’m not going to water it down for you so go read it and if you have already read it we can discuss it here  🙂

Finding yourself, and finding balance.This book absolutely changed my life.I read the last 50 pages for almost two months because I didn’t want it to end.
Movies don’t do justice to books.
