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.
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 !
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.
I’m not single and I am not going to celebrate Valentine’s Day today. Why ? because love should be celebrated daily, not just particularly on the 14th February. Today I want to inspire you to love, love yourself, take the time to pamper yourself and to look only after you. To all the single women and men, today do something different, crazy, risky to mark this day as the day to differentiate yourself and do something extraordinary for you, just for you without guilt, hesitation or overanalysis.
To all the single working mums, you are the wonderwomen of our time and I am amazed by your strength, passion and resilience to raise children on your own. To all of you, celebrate self love to always bring the best for your bundle of joy and loved ones. Today is the day where I forgot Mr Valentine to focus on my bundle of joy because she woke up at dawn and needed to be cuddled by her mummy to face the day. She is now sleeping peacefully and this is the reason why I can write this post right now.
This time forget about Mr Valentine and celebrate today as a day for pure self-love.
