Nuestra sociedad occidental se centra en la propiedad y la envidia Hemos estado acostumbrados a que nos ofrezcan demasiado de todo: poseemos, destruimos y desperdiciamos mucho. Los recuerdos asociados con ciertos objetos nos inmovilizan en el pasado Algunas baratijas nos conectan con recuerdos tanto que nos hacen olvidar el presente. Estos objetos nos han rodeado por tanto tiempo que tememos evolucionar sin ellos: a veces parecen poseernos. Exhala tus pensamientos negativos y deja que tu mente se vuelva a enfocar. Solo la paciencia y la perseverancia pueden ayudarnos a controlar nuestras mentes para estar en el momento presente.

With that being said, I disagree with this book as a whole. I understand that the author is writing this from the perspective of someone who has lived in both French and Japanese culture, but most of this book felt like patriarchal propaganda to me.
The book is geared toward women, which gave me the following impression: women are I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The book is geared toward women, which gave me the following impression: women are simple creatures and should therefore live simply.
Men need not follow the same guidelines. Loreau writes about the importance of striving for beauty and perfection. In general, trying to be the best version of yourself is a good goal to have, granted you are doing it for the right reasons.
For example, she talks about how nobody likes hearing people complain about their problems. There is a little truth to that, but life is not all rainbows and sunshine. Loreau gives unhealthy and contradictory advice in this book.
On some days, I can reach early evening without feeling hungry, but my body still needs nutrients throughout the day to perform basic involuntary functions. However, the author reminds us that nobody likes seeing people who are out of shape physically either.
I was half expecting her to write that women should not be TOO in shape. As for organization, there was a lot of overlap between the sections, and some of the language is extremely repetitive. At times, this felt like a stream of consciousness piece rather than a self-help book; Loreau does not always move from sentence to sentence logically.
Many details could have been removed, and the book would have had the same impact. Striving to be better is a healthy goal, but we must determine for ourselves what the best version of us is like as opposed to mindlessly following the advice of someone who, if she saw us in everyday life, would likely pass judgment on us before knowing us.
