Just beautiful

Thank you Jenna for writing your thoughts and growth and hope in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed every chapter. I never thought you were as spiritual as that no wonder I was drawn to read it ..... the universe kept showing it to me I would highly recommend this especially for those who require some trust and hope when life throws you challenges

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.

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.)

Jenna is precious, not completely what I expected however.

I think Jenna is a sweet person who is very... intentional but this book didn’t move me like I had hoped. It feels like a to do list of “how to find your balance.” But it’s sort of mundane and mechanical. I hate to say that because I was soooo looking forward to this book. I expected it to be like another, top rated self development book I recently read. I just wish it was less of a “follow Jenna for the day and do what she does” style and more a curl up on the couch with your good friend Jenna, pour your hearts out, connect, and work through it together. I wish methods that worked for her were suggested instead of listing them off like a proven science. I took a few things from this book and plan to work them into my daily routine. If Jenna ever decided to write a second book I WOULD buy it. But I would hope that she opens up a little more. I understand keeping personal things personal. But if you want to reach an audience and help them feel understood, you have to share the heart stopping moments that truly made you strong. Honesty is everything. As of now I just feel like Jenna has no clue what it’s like to hurt, walk a mile in my shoes and tell me if rose tea solves your problems. But I try to remember I just don’t know her story. She didn’t truly share it. I bought this book because I was about to marry someone and my heart was broken by the truth of who they were. I hoped to learn how to gracefully deal with the moments that make you want to curl up in a ball. I didn’t get that.

Beautiful and Graceful

For me it was the right book at the right time. Jenna is a modern woman. She is inspiring and human. It helped remind me to focus on grace and the things that bring me joy and mostly that I'm important.

What I’ve been searching for

This book is fantastic. Every chapter unfolds with intrigue and brings a sense of calm. Interesting stories woven with intriguing facts makes a must read. This book came at a time that I didn’t know what words I needed to hear, but here they were. Every chapter brings presence and reflection to my own life. This is such a great book. If you are deciding whether to read it, but this book. It’s truly incredible and I have admittedly listened to it three times through now. I will be buying the hard copy as well!

Great fundamentals to try when divorcing.

Loved the book! There was no bashing of Chan. Jenna expressed her pain that divorce brought her and how to cope with it and everyday life. She provided great recipes to try and daily rituals for peace, relaxation, and positivity.

Love love love

I had only heard of this author through her ex husband, but really learned to love her as a person. She has tripped stumbled and fallen in her life, which she explains throughout and gives advise on pulling yourself together in all aspects of your mind, body, and soul.
