BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes From Mama Gena's School Of Womanly Arts by Regena Thomashauer
If you are in touch with your feminine side and don't mind a pink, whimsical presentation that includes an author continuously referring to herself as "Mama", you might really enjoy Mama Gena's School Of Womanly Arts. You might even be inspired by it!
As its subtitle suggests, it is all about "using the power of pleasure to have your way with the world," and the kind of pleasure she is talking about is not the kind of pleasure that you give. It's the kind of pleasure you receive... as in take for yourself.
Can you handle that?!
A lot of women can't. It's a new concept for many of us. Taking pleasure. We are such natural givers, and society often expects us to give. So- we give & give & give & give until we have nothing left.
When you think about it- it's rather counter-intuitive. If you want to give, if you enjoy giving or even feel that it's your soul's purpose to be a giver, it makes no sense to give & give until you have nothing left... because well- then you have nothing left to give! And who does that benefit? No one.
If what I am saying here resonates with you at all, I'd like to suggest giving this book a chance. It is sexy, fun and oh so liberating. I doubt you'll be disappointed...
