You Don’t Have to Eat the Eyeballs

A Story of Travel, People-Pleasing & Self-Love

You Don't Have to Eat the Eyeballs

Are you a people-pleaser? Do you always want everyone to be happy – even if it means sacrificing your own truth?

Please join Katrina Bos as she shares stories from her travels around the world as she takes the final journey from life-long people-pleaser to living in a place of true self-love… The kind of self-love where it is effortless to hear our truth, to make choices from that truth, and to still be surrounded by everyone and everything we love.

And it all starts on a little island where she felt obligated to eat eyeballs because it was tradition…

She soon realized that she had been metaphorically eating eyeballs her whole life.

Hmmmm… After reading this book, you will recognize all the eyeballs you are eating…

But now? No more “eyeballs” for us. 🙂

A Personal Note

Hi there:

This book means a lot to me because through the personal experiences in this book and the process of writing the book, it’s like I peeled another layer of the onion of my deep training and habit of people-pleasing, wanting everyone to be happy (with me), never wanting to disappoint anyone, and in the end, going against my own truth and happiness for the sake of keeping everyone else happy.

I believe that my book, What If You Could Skip the Cancer?, explores a similar topic, except that it was my journey from my mind to trusting inner guidance, having faith, and seeing a much bigger world. This helped me to not look to others for how I was supposed to be living – which was a very big deal. But apparently, there was more to learn.

Now, 20 years later, I have been listening within happily and my life has changed in so many ways. But there was still more to learn to truly become happy and whole.

It started in my journey on a tropical island where I felt obligated to eat great big fish eyeballs. I tried… and failed… kicking my people-pleasing-self into full failure-mode. Then there were even more stories from my time there that were definitely taking me into dark places – perhaps for a later personal breakthrough. 🙂

I share stories from Malta, Greece, Italy, etc of personal realizations I had about how we lose ourselves, what it’s like to live without love, isolation, etc.

And then, I had my real breakthrough in Sicily. This “dark night of the soul” finally brought me to a level of self-love that was new and shifted me in incredible ways.

So, I am really happy to get to share this book with you because I know I am not alone in this habit of wanting to please others – to our own detriment. 🙂

“This book was such an amazing read! I devoured it in one sitting and was sad when it was over. So many times in this book I caught myself 100% relating to the words on the page. I am sure any reader will have similar moments during the book. It was such a thought provoking read and made me question why we do what we do. Why do we look to others for our acceptance when we need to learn to just be who we truly are. and love every last unique cell of our being. This will be a book that I will read and reread it many times. Thank you Katrina for your personal journey that you shared with us!”

“Oh, I just love this book. The story you start the book with is written so well, I laughed through it.. and entered your journey, which soon became my journey. I love how you write in a way where you stick to your experience, and then so smoothly you open it up for me (the reader), you invite me into a state of introspection, without ever asking me to do so. And this is what I love the most about a book, the (silent) invitation to stop, be awake, and meet oneself – it’s the kindest way to share good stuff!

This book has this quality of widening the awareness of the reader, so life cannot be the same anymore, things start to shift, different states of mind or emotions start to occur, even mix up in a chaotic way, dreams communicate more. It really spoke to me!

I think, or shall I say – feel, I’m a more firm woman today, yet more soft, and the book had to do something with it.

I think you have laid a beautiful foundation with it for us women to unite, to feel this ‘across-the-globe’ connection with each other. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’ve been watching your videos and could hear you actually telling me your book, but I could really relate also to all the friends of yours that took places in stories. I could really feel this universal woman-hood. You actually start all of the chapters with a story, where a woman friend is mentioned (also the ones from the island, you mostly focus on your hostess). So, what I want to say here is that I sense it’s a book women could totally relate to.”
