I wrote a book

I have been writing for years, but nothing made it to the final step of publishing.

This time it did.

I wrote about Mindfulness, I wrote about life, I wrote about what it means to be alive and live as a human beings fully present and aware of his abilities.

Over the years I have found that mindfulness and more precisely self awareness made everything feel better.

I gained clarity, I gained understanding, I gain energy and joy.

By being aware of my emotions, by shedding light on my patterns and reactions I really got the know myself.

This makes the whole difference.

You can do anything, you can feel anything, you can be anything, as long as you firmly stand grounded and feel connected to yourself it’s all good.

I have another book that has been collecting dust on my laptop for the last couple of years (is it? ) and I might very much publish it now.

The first time always is the hardest, then it’s just a matter of repeating it enough to master it.

I also want to write in French.

And to write book 2 of Mindfulness by Yourself.

I am buzzing ideas.

It’s funny how it works once you genuinely trust yourself and take that leap of faith.

Life feels so much lighter and funnier.

I highly recommend you try it.

With love,

How do we make fear fit into our lives?

Well first of all, and I’m sure you already know it, balance is everything.

Maybe more than balance, I’d say harmony is required.

From Marie Kondo sparkling joy with her tidying techniques to Elisabeth Gilbert inspiring us to be true to ourselves through her books the message is the same: know yourself, know what works for you and relentlessly recentre yourself.

Know thyself – Socrates

But to get back to our specific topic: FEAR

Fear is essential to our survival.

Fear gives us energy.

Fear keeps us alive.

Fear is just the opposite of love.

What you fear is what you can work on, from childhood trauma to phobias counsellors and therapists do wonders.

How you acknowledge your fear and how you reparent yourself is also what you can work on, therapists and coaches are great teachers.

How you choose relentlessly to see the positive outcome, to learn from your experience and to trust yourself is how you start creating a life that suits you.

Like all emotions fear is an indicator, being able to recognize and analyse it is what makes you a great strongly centred human being.

As Michelle Obama said ‘I don’t want to live in a world based on fear’. Don’t let fear lead your life, it is just a tool, nothing more.

Use all the relaxations techniques that you know of, learn more about them if needed to go back to what you know is true:

You’ve got this.

It’s not finished until you remembered that. Every day. You can do it.
