The Rural Women Dilemma by Loshni Manikam
Are you a rural woman who has felt stuck between wanting to be a supportive mum, wife, & farming partner, AND starting to do more for you?
You love your family and your farming business, but maybe sometimes you pause in the middle of your busy life and wonder: "Is this it? Is this all that I get to be and have and do?" You long to do more for you, but:
* You can't find the time or the energy or the support to fit it in around all your roles and responsibilities.
* You feel so selfish and greedy for wanting more when you already have so much to be grateful for!
* You feel too guilty to do anything for yourself, when you should be doing all the things on your long to-do list.
So you end up feeling angry and resentful of your family and farming business ... with no idea why, or how to change things!
If you're nodding along, then this is the book for you!
Loshni shares her story of going through this exact same struggle, in a deeply personal and relatable manner, that will leave you feeling seen, heard and acknowledged. You will learn:
1. That there are so many other women struggling with the same dilemma - you are not alone.
2. The 10 Signs of Struggle, and work out how many apply to you.
3. The critical First Step to doing more for yourself so that you can start thriving and make the most of your life ... while still being the loving mum, wife and farming partner you really want to be.
You will hear from other women about their struggle, and their practical tips to start doing more for yourself, without feeling guilty.
Loshni uses all she's learnt over a decade of conversations as a coach, to put into words what rural women feel and experience ... but is seldom talked about.

Wow! This book is great to help you realise that you’re not the only one going through “stuff”. We all deserve to be happy and it's ok to put ourselves first. If we are happy, everything else will fall into place. This book helped me to just stop; just take small steps; not try to rush through to get to the end game/goal and then be disappointed. It's a journey we are on and we need to enjoy it. Deborah Paterson
Reading this book is a journey of reflection. For me, there were parts that I was thinking “me, me, me” when asked if I had felt a particular way, or was frustrated with some things too. I like being able to first reflect, and then enjoyed reading the top tips in the concluding chapters and the ideas on steps to take. Life is about taking steps - there will always be parts you don’t like and don’t enjoy and it’s great to be reminded that moving these parts towards thriving is a conscious action that once done, benefits many around us too.
