I have little time to read, but recently picked up a copy of Eat, Pray, Love. I was slightly intrigued by the author's first visit to Oprah, but my interest was completely peaked when she was asked to make another appearance about a month later to address some of the mail the show had received about her first appearance. While out doing some holiday shopping, I noticed the book being predominantly displayed and took that as a sign that it was time to buy it. I've been consuming it little by little every day. I have to admit I am truly spellbound by this woman's journey and have made some little self discoveries as well. For instance, I notice that a lot of time, the voices in my head are not my own. Before you think that I'm crazy, let me explain that I often times hear my mother's voice or my boss, or my husband or even my own kids. I've ceased to listen to my own voice because I am more interested in pleasing others than myself. I now know that I need to stop doing that and listen more carefully to my own voice. If you happen to pass a bookstore in the near future, please give this book a try. There's really something for everyone in this book, but if you are a woman, you will especially see yourself somewhere in the pages of this book.
