A Honeybee Heart Has Five Openings
Honeybees are vital to human survival, so those who tend hives are helpers for all of us. Helen Jukes’ story will touch the hearts of those who care about the relationships between humans and other members of the animal world. Jukes received a colony of honeybees as a gift from a friend after she moved to a new house in Oxford. As she embarks on her beekeeping journey, she learns everything she can about these fascinating creatures.
In this complicated, chilling imagined future of surrogacy, Ramos reminds us that not all “helpers” have much of a choice. On the luxury grounds of The Farm, women enjoy free organic food, massages, and personal trainers—all under heavy surveillance while dedicating themselves to producing the perfect baby for someone else. Jane needs the money she’s been promised once she delivers the baby, but she is determined to reconnect with her life and family in the outside world.
Generous giving is noble, and it is possible to care for both yourself and others. Unfortunately, though, many women falsely identify with type Two at first because cultural expectations have led them to consistently put others’ needs before their own. Untamed is a memoir and a wake-up call from a woman who learned how to stop sacrificing her own desires to fit expectations, and bravely follow her own voice to live a more fulfilling life.
Twos care deeply about the people around them, and they genuinely find joy in giving. This type places a high value on love and relationships. They are always thinking about how they can demonstrate their affection for other people through their generosity. They are sensitive and empathetic, but they can get caught in a cycle of people-pleasing or manipulation if they are motivated by a fear of not being liked. Therefore, twos need to develop a solid sense of self-worth that comes from within, and learn to fill their own cups before they give to others.
