When life gets tough, that's when you know you need to stop and ponder about your life so far.
And if when that happen, I *highly* recommend you to get this book and have a read. I assure you that you will re-think about your own life after.
Tuesdays with Morrie is a relatively short book, but because of the deep meaning, you might take up to 3 days to finish reading it, that is if you spend around 2 hours reading a day. It is about Morrie who is about to die, and Mitch spent the final few Tuesdays with him and from the time they spent together, Morrie taught Mitch all about the philosphies of his life, because Morrie was once a philosophy lecturer.
It taught me not to rush, take time off, appreciate all around you, and it's ok to not be ok, but you need to detach yourself from being not okay after you're done wallowing in your negative emotions.
A must have, and a GREAT book as gift or souvenir!
