Me Before You - Jojo Moyes This is very special story...
of a man named Will and a lovely girl named Lou.
They haven't crosses path through out their lives while living in the same city.
He lives to the fullest that life could offer him.
She lives in contentment of what she only have.
Until one day his whole life turned upside down because of an accident.
Until one day her whole life just went to a brink.
They were never destined to cross path but funny life can be so cruel sometimes.
What Do You Want to Do With Your Life?

the question sounds benign isn't it. It's a question that makes you stop and think for a while,that makes you rethink your life all of a sudden.
Can you answer that with what your desires right now, your passions maybe?, your dreams, your happiness...there's no limit on the answer, you just have the willingness to make it come true.

That is the beauty of what this story is telling,
‘Just Live well, Just Live.’
‘You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.’


Its honest, real, hilarious, heart felt and thought provoking.
The cast of characters were very real, if you read the family part of Lou, it was the typical ordinary family, full of struggles but they still understood each other and work it out their problems one way or the other.
Will and Lou are easy to love characters,
he's bossy, mercurial and sarcastic, she's quirky, kind, tenacious and caring, really its a wonder how they work out each other from a daily basis, but they did! and it was beautiful when they were together.
Even if this book is everything you could have known from the very beginning of the story,that the ending is already given to you, only that you wouldn't want the ending to happen...
the words "what if and if only" comes to my mind often when reading this,
its difficult, very difficult. What will you do if you're in the in the shoes of Will Traynor? It is such a life changing scenario and a serious subject matter to deal with...
its emotionally raw that tugs your heart strings.

This book has thought me that life is precious, life is worth while, don't regret, if you fail, stand up and dust it off, that life even with all the trials and tribulations, we should never give up, that life is an opportunity given to us to live as we want it to be...No one will take that away from us, after all what is "free will" if we don't use it right?

so I leave you with this song from Eminem called "Lose Yourself" it says:

Look, if you had one shot or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted, one moment
Would you capture it?
Or just let it slip...
You better lose yourself in the music
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.
