For those that want to know, be aware...

I bought this book during the Audible sale and was eager to listen. I am already living my best life every single day, but was curious to know what that looks like from a celebrity's point of view, and if she had any health or beauty tips. What I wasn't expecting was that this book is very centered on "new age" stuff. Within the first twenty minutes, she talked about mantras, about stopping to give respect and praise to trees and plants, and about her fondness for divination (especially her Tarot cards). Definitely not for me. She narrates beautifully and I'm glad that works for her, but as for me, I'm a flawed human. Positive thinking and visualization and mantras and the best intentions will only get you so far, until life throws you a curveball out of left field. A disease, a tragedy, a death, a divorce, a major disappointment. No matter how we try, there will always be those things in life that still cause us pain or worry or fear. As a Christian, I rely heavily on the peace and safety and comfort of knowing that God has my back, and He adores me and cares for me, and that I can trust in Him to take care of things for me. I am not qualified enough, even on my best day. I follow His path and guidance, and life is grand because of that. I much prefer to pay my praise and respect to the One who created the trees and plants, and who created little ol' me. I, as one of God's special plants, bear much fruit. =) Anyway, I stopped listening since I just have no interest in the kinds of things that are important to her. I wish her the best, and any others who enjoy her book.

Disappointing...

I was looking forward to this book, but after reading it was sadly disappointed. I was expecting it to be more profound, a truly relatable book for women. It is a cute book, a fun/light/trivial read but it isn’t a book I could relate to, she came to know all these natural/herbal remedies/meditation styles in a typical LA way. How many women can just drop everything and go to Peru, also the herbs she uses are expensive and most people can’t afford her “lifestyle”. I was expecting it to be applicable and woke, it comes across as a woman with lots of time to dabble, who decided to write a book about her LA holistic regime.

So engaging!

This book kept me engaged the whole time. I found myself relating to a lot of her experiences in motherhood and life in general. I took away a sense of power and positivity after every chapter, and definitely plan to use many of the tools given to find and center myself on a daily basis. I highly recommend this to anyone struggling to find inner peace and strength. It’s incredibly uplifting and powerful.

Spiritual Dancer

Jenna's book is like her, beautiful and sensitive. It's also filled with pretty photos and recipes and exercises. This book is a mix between a memoir, a heartbreak book, and magic. Jenna took us through a ride through her life from childhood until now. Focusing on her career as a dancer, being an actress, her roles as mom and wife, her relationships and divorce, her travels and discoveries, and her belief in the occult, witchcraft and energy, exercises, recipes, and mantras. I loved the many information she added to mine, I wanted to exchange information with her and maybe send her some gifts from our part of the world from scents to herbs. I loved Jenna in "Take the Lead" (though she didn't get a lot of scenes after edits, but I love the last tango scene), and Witches of East End (sadly she didn't talk about it at all, though I thought the role resembles her actual life.)

Serene uplifting words

I’m not the best at reading as I tend to fall asleep after one page! So after purchasing the hardback version and only reading through once I wanted to have the words available to me when needed and without struggling to keep my eyes open! This book is so inspiring to me as an empath and a spiritual person as I am always seeking more from life along with dealing with busyness, heartache and chasing a greater life fulfilment. Jenna’s words are calming, reassuring and truly inspiring. It’s all that I know and love, being brought back to the surface again so I can truly feel me. I especially at a time like this, I’ve kinda lost myself a little. Thank you Jenna for your grace in these words you’ve written and the story you tell.

What an all round beautiful and uplifting book ❤️

Such a beautifully written and read book by Jenna. I felt inspired to make subtle shifts in my life and to live gracefully. It had me review how I didn't handle my own divorce gracefully and choose to do so in unpleasant situations going forward. It was a delight listening to Jenna as she has such a soothing and grounded voice and presence. It felt like a good friend telling me about her insights and struggles and what she did to handle it. I will certainly be listening again and would recommend to anyone wanting to live a graceful and love-full life. 🙏
