MUST READ: TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE
Have you noticed how sometimes the universe really wants you to notice something?
Over the last month I’ve literally ‘bumped’ into this book, several times. I saw it peeping out of someone’s bag, I saw it being purchased at a book store, I randomly landed on a review of it and then everytime I, myself, would go to purchase books online or instore Tuesdays with Morrie was always featured in a really obvious, hard to ignore spot.
One afternoon having lunch at Gertrude & Alice in Bondi Beach, I, as usual, had selected 5 books to purchase (so that’s where my money always goes!) and as I was about to head out, again, there was Tuesday’s with Morrie. It was getting ridiculous – enough already, the book was bought.
I finished it in one night.
This is a must-read. Many of you probably are well ahead of me. It seems I might be a little slow on the uptake here, (it’s an international bestseller!) but nevertheless, I cannot recommend this book enough.
A story about a man going back to have his last ‘lessons’ with his old university professor – Morrie – on Tuesdays. Morrie is dying. Morrie wants to share his experience and his pain. He wants to be the gateway between life and death and literally pass on the wisdom and knowledge that he has both accumulated over his life but also in the final months of his life.
This book is a total gem. Without over complicating the topics, Morrie and Mitch (the author and main character) discuss and discover spirituality, love, friendship, family and more.
The biggest lesson I received from this book was around appreciation, gratefulness and understanding what really matters.
“I don’t know what spiritual development reall means. But I do know we’re deficient in some way. We are too involved in materialistic things and they don’t satisfy us. They loving relationships we have, the universe around us, we take these things for granted.”
Tuesdays with Morrie really made me think. It just made sense. It’s most certainly a book that everyone should read, own, read again.
Signing off with an exhale.
Pause. Listen. Live.
