Taking the fear out of midlife

In my early years, I was the child that most people dream of. I was the nice girl. I was even a nice teenager! I didn’t behave badly, I wasn’t naughty and I didn’t do anything crazy. I waited until my thirties to push a few boundaries, but that’s another story…

Inspirational Poem

Capture d’écran 2013-05-14 à 14.26.08

I would like to share the beautiful poem called The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.

The invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for,
And if you dare to dream of meeting
Your heart’s longing. Continue reading

What if?

Capture d’écran 2016-01-01 à 11.09.25

  • What if you were living a life you don’t really want?
  • What if you felt trapped in an unsatisfying existence?
  • What if there were other possibilities than the life you’ve been taught… finding a secure job, working hard, getting married, buying a house, having children, etc.?
  • What if you were connected to your true dreams and desires?
  • What if you could follow your heart?
  • What if you could stand for what really matters to you and you wouldn’t care about what other people think?
  • What if there were no limits at what you could achieve?
  • What if you were giving a magical wand and you could change anything in your life?

What if any of these questions were resonating with you? Let’s talk!

Want a change? but don’t know where to start!!

 

capture-decran-2017-01-20-a-15-22-04With the new year comes generally a period when people decide to change something: the New Year resolutions!

What I’ve experienced for myself and witnessed happening for others is that you are first very enthusiastic by eating in a healthy way, exercising regularly, leaving work earlier, going out and meeting new people, spending more time with the children… So you begin your new regime… It works for a week, maybe two weeks, maybe a month and then, suddenly you can’t keep up and you go back to square one.

Au revoir to the stress at the end of the year!

The end of the year means the festive season. It brings family and friends together. It is a sharing and joyful time. It could also bring some frustration, tiredness and stress.

What about deciding that this year will be different? It is possible! Sorry, I don’t have a magic wand. You need to put little things into practice and maybe try another approach.

Begin your day peacefully!


Capture d’écran 2013-01-22 à 18.33.10

Set up the alarm 5 minutes before your usual time. Leave your alarm on snooze, just in case!

Lie on your back and take 3 deep breathes and exhale slowly. Then, concentrate on your natural breath and begin to visualize what you have to achieve during the day.

See yourself through the day, feel it! If you have something nice planned, feel your excitement or your happiness! If you have something you don’t like or you don’t feel comfortable with, visualize it the way you would like to live it. Feel it…

Take 3 final deep breathes and exhale slowly. Be grateful for this new day and don’t hesitate to smile!

You are now ready to begin your day! Last little advice, don’t jump out of your bed: lay on the side, put your legs out of the bed, sit on the edge of the bed and then get up.

Enjoy!

Tea Tree Essential Oil: my first aid product

Capture d’écran 2013-03-13 à 17.18.48When I travel away Tea Tree Oil is the most important first aid oil in my arsenal. I discovered this oil a few years ago and it has a lot of benefits.

Tea tree oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a tree native to Australia. Historically, the leaves were used as a substitute for tea, which is how tea tree oil got its name. The part used medicinally is the oil from the leaves. Continue reading
