Night time

I have never been a real morning person. I fake it because life is requesting of me that the days begin early. And it’s fine. I enjoy doing a lot of things in the morning to relax a bit in the afternoon, « savourer » a little sleep in a sun ray.

Every moment count

I have become a mother not so long ago and my cycles (day-night-sleep) have changed. Ever since, I realize everyday how life is about small things and my ability to make every moment count. For example, we I come home at night with my son, we don’t have much time together before he goes to bed. So, what do I do? I play with him until dinner time. I leave my phone in a drawer somewhere (unless I take pictures) and I am fully present with him, for us both. I don’t want to be angry at Time. I am presently reconsidering some choices that I made to allow me to spend more family time… I will get there.

After dinner it’s bath time and, then, we play again. Finally, he goes to bed and my wounded torture mother heart feels better because the evening mattered.

I apply the same mindfulness concept for myself. When the lights go off, it is the time for me to connect with my soul and to bond with nature.

Sometimes it happens all in my head when I review the day and consider if my decisions are align with my plan. Mostly in summer, I will enjoy a small walk in the warmth of the night to recharge my battery and connect with magic and mystery.

Connecting with myself every night has always helped me to stay strong and captain of my destiny. I am not alone now but I will never give up on Me and will continue to date myself every night. For my own good.

The Ring

I bought that ring when I was pregnant of my son.

I chose it because of the combination of Tree of Life and the « Gratitude » inscription carved into the ring.  I though it graphically carried out how I felt.

Since my 25th birthday, all I wanted was to have a kid but I knew I had to make important choices to make it happen.  Finally, it was the gift life gave me on my 36th birthday.

If you have been pregnant, you know it ain’t always easy. You have to overcome great fears and physical important changes. But like I said, I had wanted to be a mother since I was 25 years old.  And I fought and worked hard on myself to end up giving birth to the most amazing little boy.  So, I wore and looked at that ring (still am) everyday as a reminder of my gratitude.  And looking at it, I realized that this dream came true because I kept a positive attitude in life and was thankful for all the little steps I would take toward that dream.

An Attitude to Keep

So, for me anyway, Gratitude is an Attitude that can change any ordinary life into a life full of light, kindness for ourselves an others and full of love.

If you want a reminder similar to the one I wear everyday, please contact me.

I am reposting this because, knowing a little more about ourselves certainly helps us being better and more conscious parents.  I actually went online to take the Myer-Briggs test and the results were just amazing.

Finaly, I could put into words feelings I had about myself for years. If you want to know, I am a campaignerCampaigner or ENFP. I am part of the Advocate Family (that I knew).

It’s all clearer for me now how discipline is not my biggest strength but that I will be very good at helping my child see the different angles of situation or  to teach him how to size people better.

You can take the test here. Caution, this is creepy how the results can reflect reality.

Enjoy the moment and take a good tea reading what you are all about.

Et juste comme ça, la vie reprend ses droits. Les cycles sont à l’infini. Personne n’y échappe. La naissance, les rires, les épreuves, l’amour, la mort. La seule chose que l’on pourra décider sera en même temps ce qui demandera le plus d’efforts. Passer de ce que l’on croit que l’on attend de nous à ce que nous sommes, pour enfin devenir qui l’on veut.

Métamorphose; papillon; vie; changement; renouveau.

Alors, soyez disponibles à la vie.

Sortez de votre cocon et voyez toute cette énergie disponible à votre portée.

Soyez bons pour vous-même et faites le vœux de vous attirer les bonnes personnes pour grandir et les ressources matérielles en quantités suffisantes pour vivre confortablement. Laissez l’amour entrer dans votre vie et contaminer tous vos petits gestes.
