"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
"The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost
Some personal journeys are too incredible to be anything, but non-fiction. Susan Biali, M.D.'s story is one of those too fantastic to believe if it wasn't true genre. Halfway through an Emergency Medicine residency, with $100,000 in medical school loans, and suicidal, Dr. Biali had an epiphany: to quit the residency and take up dancing (dancing was her dream career as a child). Along the way, the Canadian born author moved to Mexico, performed the flamenco on stage before Sean Penn, married a fellow dancer, became a published writer and a noted speech-maker. Needless to say this took a lot of courage! As Biali confesses, "All I had was a little bit of talent, a lot of passion, a big dream and piles of faith."
In Live a Life You Love, Biali shares the keys to finding personal fulfillment even if it leads to an unconventional path. Much of the information -- finding your passion; self-love; healing yourself; trusting in a higher power -- is not new (at least not to any reader well versed in the self help genre). That is not to say that this information is not well-packaged because it is. The writing is both entertaining and informative.
Still what is new and what drew me into Live a Life You Love is the author's highly inspirational tale! I really admired the choices Biali made. And this admiration gave her writing more credence than many tomes preaching motivation with cliches that provide little inspiration.
Live a Life You Love is worth reading for Biali's personal story alone!

Dr Biali gives an inspirational put practical guide to finding what you are passionate about in your life. She focuses on finding what you have dreamed of doing rather than doing what others expect. By doing what you love you become the person you were designed to be and life is a blessing. She is so helpful in regards to nutrition and health. She gives sage advice for keeping stress at bay and having more energy. I am recommending this book to all my friends. It really is a must read for those seeking balance and finding their passions.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
