I Do Not Forget You

I didn’t write for a moment because my friends I am hyper busy.

I am creating my new website on my own and this experience really stretched my comfort zone.

But so far, so good and you may guess, I am a tiny demanding with how I want my website to look like.

So this the reason why I am not writing as much as before but I do not forget you, to the contrary I am preparing something for you which will blow your mind (in a good way, of course!)

After all, my passion is to inspire, motivate and empower YOU !

Happy Friday

With love

What Is Appreciation To Truly Grasp It?

It is an innate feeling to appreciate what is around us. It is gradually to see your vision, your reality taking place and notice these little details every day. It’s like coming out of a bubble of revolving negative thoughts, overanalysis to see your world as it is. And this is where it’s YOUR turn to observe, listen and appreciate.

Sometimes it can be a job offered to your sister, the beauty of the sky after a violent storm, a good chat with your best friend, a compliment from someone. Small, simple events which make us feel alive, happy and part of the steps to have a good day. When you do notice all these little details, you do realise what is appreciation.

Appreciation is a feeling arising in our mind when we start to be aware, to set up our own pace by being organised for instance or changing our habits slowly but surely. It sounds cliché at first because we have been brainstormed to believe appreciation means slowing down which is the contrary of the motto of our time which glorify busyness and productivity.

But this is where it’s crucial to realise this : without appreciation, there is no taste for life, no thank you for what we have, no time to reflect and the risk to be engulfed in a vicious, stressful and negative circle. And this run has to stop. We need to take back control of our life and make the right choices.

Because we have this power, we need to use it meaningfully. And it’s only by being grateful that we can see where we are and what will be our next path/ direction. So, take the time to write down for what you feel grateful each day and your mind will help you to see more and more what you can truly appreciate in your life.

I am doing it daily and I discover all the beautiful gems in my life that I never noticed until now. It is sometimes life-changing or emotionally strong but I am coming back from these moments stronger, happier because I am learning more about myself.

Appreciation is a virtuous circle as well as a door to knowing yourself continuously. Let your life be a sunshine by accepting appreciation in your life.

We All Deserve To Create A Life We Love

Back from a short break in Brittany, it made me realise how taking a break is essential. I needed to rest, relax, reflect and be on my own to recharge my batteries. Any woman should give her permission to look truly after herself. It’s  a question of self-care, self-love and respect.

Additionally it is a fantastic booster because your motivation is jumping in your face, the why of doing so much, thinking so much and attain milestones without even seeing it…and it pushed you to slow down, to pause, to reflect. Your body, mind, soul are craving to have these moments, these present moments to re-calibrate, to question yourselves without judgement, to realise your achievements and where you are in your journey.

Despite the frenzied pace of our world, we have this choice. This ability to consciously make a decision to shift our attitude, embrace a positive mindset to perceive solutions, ideas you never thought previously.

This is an ongoing practice that honestly, I love because I see people transforming in front of me, feeling good, reassured and confident that they can find the solutions by themselves. The light in their eyes when they have this lightbulb moment is priceless.

I attended a Coaching training for Performance that confirmed to me, once again that inspiring, motivating and empowering people is my passion. Guiding people to think different is like magic for me and everyone deserve it. We all deserve to create a life we love.

Self Care Is Good But Self Love Is Even Better !

It is when the truth is slapping in the face that you always stop yourself in your tracks. Your all awesomeness start to dip down and you start to be worried, concerned and put yourself in the guilt box. Because you knew. You knew that it was time to slow down, disconnect from the digital world and make yourself as a priority.

Self care is good but Self Love is even better. If you love yourself, you will take care of yourself, if not it’s time stopping, dipping your toes in the distraction sauce and focus on the essential stuff which is only YOU.

Yes, no need to find reasons not to, excuses when your doctor ask you to have an ultra sound to check if you have a disease that you’re not aware.

Was it scary to hear that ? Yes !

Did I go into the drama rollercoaster that my dear ego wanted to ? No.

Did I feel down and needed some time to reflect ? Yes.

Did I change my habits straight away ? Yes

The result of it, today is my last day before to go on holiday for a well deserved break ON MY OWN. Don’t wait until the last minute, listen to your intuition and have the courage to change for good. My friends, Self Care is good but Self Love is even BETTER !

How Can You Change Your Consciousness ? Take Back Your Power

Give up  the idea of following a step by step guide to show you how being present. We all have this power, to decide, to make this conscious choice to cut off Internet and social media to look around us. I am taking the train daily and I see everyone, practically everyone glued to their mobiles.

Why ? because someone smart had this idea to create so much possibility for these tiny or huge mobiles to hold everything : music, calls and an astronomical number of apps that we can do everything with them.

And this is the problem. Instead of connecting with people around us, we connect with this gem of technology and we cannot live without it. Is it really what you’ re going to become ? A slave of the modern technology ?

No, if consciously, you decide to take back your power and to make the choice to cut off social media when you want.

You have this power. Take it back, look around you, all the tiny details that you miss, all the opportunities you can have just by being more conscious, the lightbulb moments of creativity, the inspiring ideas popping in your mind when you do not expect it, discover something new, open your perspective, shift your mindset by challenging the status quo, dance to your heart content, there is so much more out there to live, to enjoy and to appreciate. Make the choice to see it.

Part 1 – How To Declutter Your Mind ? By Creating Space !

I decided to declutter, BIG time. In fact, I wanted to do so for a moment and the e-book by Marci Shimoff and Debra Poneman gave me the boost to declutter in a big way. They advised to throw, give 27 items not used or not bringing joy during 9 days.

I dived into this challenge straight away. I was ready to declutter BIG time and I knew the endless benefits of it : clarity, peace of mind, minimalism but above all, I was responding to a calling : to create space in my mind and environment for something new, different in alignment with my intentions for 2018.

Let me tell you the first two days were awesome, I decluttered with so much energy that this decision made me happy all the day. I felt free, light and excited. On the 3rd day, it was another matter, I still wanted to do it but felt torn. I already threw so much stuff that for me, nothing was left to declutter or give. This is where instead of giving up, I played the investigator and decided to persevere. After all, the challenge was to push me out of my comfort zone and it WORKED ! I was struggling, gauging what could leave my flat once again.

I stopped because I didn’t find anything to throw or give. However I couldn’t accept my defeat to declutter only for 9 days, so I started over and this time I thought carefully of all the items I could let go with no issues in each room of my flat. I really took the time to see what I have in a new light : books, magazines, cooking books, make up, skincare, shoes, clothes and more and more. Accumulating things is a manner for us to feel secured, to feel safe and reassured about our power of buying. The downside of it is we can be manipulated by the media, marketing that buying such product will change our life, our habits for good.

To the end, I managed to declutter my flat during 9 days and throw 27 items per day. It was exciting, challenging, getting out of my comfort zone and epic. Ultimately, the result of it, I am feeling so free emotionally and spiritually. It’s like make the decision to remove the heaviness that you are carrying all day without even realising it, it’s truly cathartic and  refreshing to open yourself to new ideas, thoughts, opportunities by just decluttering your space. Give it a try, you have everything to win !

How To Transform Your Body ? Position Yourself As The Creator

The feeling to work on yourself, to exceed your limits with effort and sweat is so worth it. You have this effect to be grounded in your effort to improve, progress at your own pace.

Because you set your own expectations, you feel free and empowered. There is no pressure , just the sheer pleasure to move your body, to feel your muscles working and to know intuitively that it’s working. For your body, your mind, your soul.

It is a connection that our body and mind crave to work in unison with us to create the design and beauty we want. This partnership is so precious and powerful that igniting it is key to feel balanced, comfortable in your own skin and confident.

Confidence lies in the knowing, the core feeling that we are working in great collaboration with our body to learn another language which is called exercise/ workout. Your body needs to live this dance everyday to transform the way you want beautifully and harmoniously.

Transform your body requires patience, perseverance, faith and consistency. Why ? Because you are the creator, the creator to create this phenomenal flow of energy to design you body. The Power is in your hands. Position yourself as the creator. Grab it and own it.

Do You Want To Set Yourself Up For Success ? Let Me Show You How !

Any new achievement demands to create a flow of creativity, determination to see step by step that we are getting closer to your goal. Our brain is wired to look for evidence either that we succeed or fail, hence the reason of the importance to write down/celebrate any tiny success. It’s a fantastic booster for your self esteem, your confidence and your motivation. Your energy rise, your joy bring you more enthusiasm and a kick ass, positive attitude to keep going.

And honestly, we all know it. The tricky question is :

  • How I can ensure to stay consistent ?

This question ask us to delve more into explanation and to look at the state of our life. Let’s do it in a slow and conscious manner, shall we ?

  • What are you doing daily consuming your time ?
  • What are the roadblocks/barriers to carve out some time to work on your project, continue your research or update your CV ?
  • What is holding you back each time ?
  • How long are you spending  on social media, responding to emails, watching TV ? Hum, hum I know already that our time on social media can be pretty, pretty long when we are honest with ourselves.

So my friends, the method is :

  • to identify the tasks consuming your time.
  • put in priority the tasks that truly matter to you.
  • schedule them in your diary to see your dream, project, desire come into our reality.

You can be really surprised when you start to be aware where you focus your energy all day. Trust me ! This exercise has been a real eye opener for me ! I cut off my time on social media, unsubscribe to tons of mail lists and I found an inner balance that I LOVE !

The key ingredient is to make a choice to focus your energy on the tasks which truly matter to you and to manage your expectations when there are roadblocks.

Set up small expectations they day you are tired or exhausted, for example, work on your goal 15 or 20 minutes and the day after, you commit to work on it longer for instance 1 hour. It’s a question to add flexibility in your consistency to ensure that no matter what, you will still spend time to work on your goal.

Act consistently, keep your faith and grit high and stay positive. With that, you will set yourself up for success, no matter what.

 

This Is Your Time To Play Big !

If you have one thing that you desire most than anything, surround yourself with people having the same philosophy, mindset than you.

Once you will put a strategy in place to reach your goal, you will distance yourself from the persons, toxic, noisy, not willing to support you and embrace the new You. It can be painful but ultimately it is cathartic to find your tribe,your community.

We all strive to fulfill our desires and passions. We know deep down that pursuing our desires is like climbing a mountain because this is what we heard, learnt from our family, relatives, colleagues or friends. But listen to your inner voice, let her guide you to make the unfamiliar familiar, to face your fears, to bust off your limiting beliefs and to create a life you LOVE.

A life on your own terms surrounded by your tribe where you will positively impact the life of others while being free. Free of rules, of the should, have to, to truly transform your life and the life of others. My friends, you can do it.

All of us, we are seeking to connect, to make a difference in the world to leverage our uniqueness and be a creator. To share our knowledge, our skills, our talents in a savvy way and create our own happiness, our own bliss. Like you, I will not give up until I will make reality my vision.

Life is an adventure, a fabulous journey that we have the chance to live. Don’t ever forget about it. This is you time to shift your mindset.This is your time to play big.
