|About the Book|
Opera Jennings used to wake up every morning feeling a sense of emptiness in her chest. “What am I doing with my life?” she would often ask herself. “I’ve gotten myself into this meaningless routine called ‘life’ and yet I don’t feel alive anymore. I feel nothing. I feel stuck. I feel unsatisfied, unhappy, like I’m wasting my life and not getting anything out of it.”One day Opera was asked a simple question that would end up changing her life. She realised that she had spent her whole life taking the “safe option” that people had been telling her to take from day one. Her focus all her life had been on working hard and keeping herself financially above water. In the meantime she had forgotten what she really wanted from life.She had forgotten how to really LIVE.Instead of waking up to a sense of passionate aliveness and happiness every morning, she was subsisting on a meaningless 9-5 routine that left her feeling empty and numb inside.In that moment she decided to dedicate her life to genuine happiness and freedom.Along the way she has realised that among other things, happiness is a combination of internal and external balance and when one world is neglected for the sake of the other, both suffer.This is more than just a memoir, it is a step-by-step guide (supported by scientific studies) that anyone can follow to reconnect with and rediscover a deep sense of meaning and happiness in their lives.If you enjoyed Eat Pray Love, this experience is one for you.
