How to Reach A Quiet Pace of Life

I noticed something quite particular living in London and with other European countries like France, Spain, Italy or Portugal. Where I always feel in a rush to manage/ juggle so many things to do when I am living in London, it’s completely the contrary in France. All the time, I had this strong feeling that I put myself on autopilot to be able to tick off my to-do list in London. It’s a weird sensation especially when I am coming back in France, in Brittany and the pace of life is so peaceful. People are taking the time to have a coffee, enjoy their meal and being in the present, for me they are more settled because they are in harmony with their environment. It is so relaxing, to take time to do things, to get used to this pace, to this quality of life it’s pure bliss. When I am back in London, I am trying to keep this pace, this quiet confidence allowing me to face and enjoy my day. It is very easy for a …

Sometimes you just need to receive a meaningful present

He offered me a gift. Simple but so meaningful. A present I miss receiving because it’s beautiful and so thoughtful. He means as well that he listened to me. He know that I had a great day, kick ass my projects at work and felt powerless of the sadness of my friends dealing with traumatic events and difficult decisions to make. He knows that I helped as much as I can, relentlessly. But sometimes, we have to let go of our strength and accept our emotions flow freely without fear or inhibitions. Being opened to show our vulnerability to help others and support them. This is what I did today and the beautiful flowers that my man offered to me remind me that. When you are open to give, offer your presence for support, you never know when someone else will do the same for you. And he just did it. By this simple and beautiful gesture : buy me flowers to make me happy. Credit featured picture : prettystuff.tumblr.com

Being a parent is a hell of a ride !

She is making tantrums I would never imagine. She has strength, willpower and perseverance and she know what she wants. She is currently testing our boundaries constantly and it’s unbelievable but normal because all parents went through this stage. I am using diplomacy, tons of explanation, my nice and calm voice to make her understand that there are some things she won’t get or won’t do. Oh, I know that my bundle of joy understand everything I am saying to her, oh yes, it doesn’t mean that she would not try to test my patience. I have to say, the pack Patience for the Headspace app is invaluable for this particular stage. Despite these new challenges part of parenting, I saw also my daughter being more confident, gritty and happy…  exploring, being more curious, more in harmony with the world around her. She is a real firecracker when she starts but also so adorable, gorgeous and affectionate that sometimes it’s difficult to play the firm parent. Sometimes I just want to give her a cuddle …
