To be engaged

~ « I’ll always be there with you » ♡

What it is to be engaged to myself? It is to commit that no matter what because I have the courage to believe my ideas worth to be lived. It is to give myself the space to be allowed to succeed.

To be engaged to myself, is to be thrilled by the idea of your dreams being shaped and by every steps in between. It is to go, jump and dive.

To be engaged, it is to take all the space, but not giving yourself too much space to go back.

To be engaged is to be present, obliging myself to live my life fully and completely. It is to have fears but to go there anyway, as much times at needed.

It is a contract with myself for myself.

Etre engagée avec moi-même?

C’est m’impliquer quoi qu’il arrive, c’est avoir le courage de croire que mes idées valent la peine d’être vécues et me donner l’espace nécessaire d’y arriver

C’est vibrer à l’idée que mes rêves se réalisent, et par chaque étape entre ici et là bas. C’est y aller, sauter et plonger.

Etre engagée, c’est prendre tout l’espace, mais ne pas s’en donner de pour faire marche arrière.

C’est répondre présente et m’obliger à vivre la vie pleinement. C’est avoir des peurs mais y aller quand même, autant de fois que nécessaire.

C’est un contrat avec moi-même pour moi-même.

« Vous avez peur, peur de ne pas réussir? Alors allez-y. Si vous devez échouer, vous échouerez et recommencerez. Autant de fois qu’il faudra. Ce n’est pas l’échec qui nous retient, c’est le courage de recommencer qui manque et nous fait stagnez »

To be in charge

How can we help others’ if we can’t be responsible for our own needs? 

Recently I have heard so many people complaining because they came to work while being sick. How many of us have already done everything to “be so  kind” to help others, or save their ex’s and, eventually they were so frustrated, so drained, so lost. 

We convince ourselves that we have to make these painful choices. « be the good girl », « life is hard », « no pain, no gain », … Do you recognise them? We end up being so frustrated. 

Stop this ego game.

What if we would first take care of ourselves, of our needs, to be responsible, to be in charge? 

Yes, I like pleasures, those that reminds me, I am in charge. I’m in charge of being a better person. I decide to leave earlier an endless meeting because I don’t want to be late to my yoga class. I take a lunch break to go to the swimming pool because it makes me feel great. This is not negotiable.Sometime I’m late because I meditated before going to a dinner. And if I have to wait for someone who’s late, I enjoy to read a book, look or walk around, smile, breath. I go to travel , I attend this inspring workshop. You say ‘Im luck’. I say, I’m in charge. I spend my money for what inspire me, for what make me grow. I’m in charge. 

Because when I feel good, I listen to you with my heart. I do things with my heart. It flows, it’s natural. There’re no big effort. I’m here for you, with my heart. 

I’m feeling joy and happiness and you smile me back for no reason. 

I choose to be in charge, not to complain, not to be frustrated or feeling guilty. I am not ashamed.

I am in charge of my needs, of what make me feel good & happy. 

Because nobody will do it for me.
