Summary
"Women too often are overwhelmed with long to-do lists while raising a family, working long hours, and helping everyone. Putting everyone and everything before ourselves is a behavior we've learned from our mothers and the women around us. We also teach it to our daughters. The book "Women, Rice and Beans" shows women the path to pay attention to our lives and learn the wisdom waiting to be discovered and live a more balanced, happy and loving life. In this inspirational self-help book, Brazilian American Author Ana Barreto shows readers how to find wisdom in everyday life. She shares her experiences of spending her childhood in Brazil before coming to the United States and then traveling back to her home country to care for her ailing mother and releasing resentment in the process. Bonding with her elderly mother made Ana reflect on her life and the lives of many women: Many of the choices women make depletes their energy. Some of their decisions were learned from the previous generations that expected women to behave in ways that don't honor the real women's spirit. She learned nine wisdoms that she shares in her book. The book provides simple exercises for improving self-care, building a meditation practice, carving out personal time and space, practicing self-compassion and self-generosity, creating affirmations, releasing patterns of self-sabotage and depletion, and reaching for happiness. The book includes five guided meditations, directions to improve the energy of your home with feng shui, and practical suggestions to improve your personal power. It will help all mother-daughter relationships, lift you up and give you the courage to reach for what you want in life while building an inner connection with your spirit. When women do well, everyone does well." -- Amazon.com
