Daníela Rivera Zacarías believes everything happens for a reason, even if we cannot see it at the moment. This book began as her personal journal, her own attempt to discover her place in the world through analyzing experiences, relationships, and spiritual encounters. It evolved into a book—and then the beloved Hablando Sola brand with more than 2,100,000 Facebook likes—full of thoughtful questions and meaningful reflections that has inspired and uplifted hundreds of thousands of young people in Latin America. Now the book that has sold more than 200,000 copies in Latin America is available in English, coinciding with the brand’s expansion into the United States as Talking to Myself.
Zacarías guides readers on their own self-discovery journeys through simple, accessible musings and anecdotes. How do you learn to love yourself?” she asks and then continues, I think it’s impossible if you don’t know who you are.” The ensuing chapters include Love, Fear, God, Art, Beauty, Depression, Happiness, and more, tackling a wide range of subjects with one goal in mind: helping readers to better know themselves, that they might better love themselves.
This book comes alongside you like a big sister who’s been there and done that and can impart her wisdom between warm hugs and a few laughs. It will be of special interest to the 54 million Hispanic Americans in the United States because of Zacarías’s following in Latin America, but its honesty, warmth, and wisdom will give it broad appeal, particularly to young women.
