“It’s easy to get lost in endless speculation. So today, release the need to know why things happen as they do. Instead, ask for the insight to recognize what you’re meant to learn.”

– Caroline Myss

Hello my readers,

           For many years I questioned, WHY??? Why did this happen, why did it not happen, why, why, why!! Does it really matter to always know why in the exact moment that we are feeling horrible, sad, lost? 

Sometimes we just need feel and enjoy the pain, the suffering, the anger. Feel them and later you will be thankful, for they have taught you lessons greater than you ever imagine and with them, came love, compassion, empathy, tenderness, or whatever it is that comes at the end. 

Learn from these lessons, pay attentions for the signs and for the right path to take. Connect with yourself, look inside and feel. Later you will learn why. 

Don’t forget to smile because life loves you!

 

Bisous,

Fear leads US to our path

“This is the other secret that real artists know and wannabe writers don’t. When we sit down each day and do our work, power concentrates around us. The Muse takes note of our dedication. She approves. We have earned favor in her sight. When we sit down and work, we become like a magnetized rod that attracts iron filings. Ideas come. Insights accrete.”

Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates to the strength of Resistance. Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That’s why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there’d be no Resistance.”

“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.”

“Ninety-nine percent commitment is not possible. We are either 100 percent or not committed at all. I was amazed to discover this, because I had made a lifestyle out of tepid commitments that turned out to be noncommitments. I was just conning myself that I was partly committed. I had adapted to the pain of early rejection with the decision ‘Don’t play.’ If I didn’t play, I wouldn’t have to face losing. And if I were forced to play, I could always play halfheartedly. If I lost, I could say it didn’t matter, because I wasn’t trying. It took me many years to realize that I wasn’t even in the game if I was not committed. My body might have been out on the field, but my soul was on the bench. Soulless play is worse than no play at all.” ~ Gay Hendricks

Hello my readers, 

 

Sometimes we think that being committed to something or someone is a bad thing. Why do we think is a bad thing?? Sometimes we pre-dispose ourselves to failure. We think things may not work so it’s easier not to commit so it won’t hurt at the end. 

But is it really worth it, will we really enjoy it to the fullest?? I ask my self.

I personally believe that I rather give all my self to whatever that needs my commitment and see where it takes me, because it could be something amazing, yet don’t forget to enjoy every little bit of it. The good and the bad it’s all part of what makes situations, things, relationships unique. So I rather play the game and even if I lose I know I did my best and will not forget the lesson that it may teach me. 

So, go out there and commit to something or someone you LOVE! 

(please, don’t over commit either) always keep your balance. 

Don’t forget to smile because life loves you! 

Bisous,
