"I am my best person when I have less on my plate": Tuesday's "Oprah"
This book is changing the face of the world. Image from Amazon.com
I normally recap primetime shows but as a closet "Oprah" watcher I had to talk about today's show. If you haven't heard about "Eat, Pray, Love" then you've probably been living under a rock. Don't be surprised if folks give you a copy for the holidays because people are flocking to it as if it were the Bible.
The premise: After realizing the life of her dreams, WASN'T what she wanted, author Elizabeth Gilbert decided to leave everything behind and go to Italy, India and then Bali to discover what the true meaning of HER life was.
I was skeptical at first but after watching these legions of women go on and on about how great the book was, I may give it a try during the writer's strike. When Oprah herself is looking at you like you're the greatest thing since sliced bread, it might be worth your time to give it a gander.
The author is a hoot and she's that partyguest that you'd want to stay after the last guest is gone.
