And then you fall in love with yourself

And then you fall in love with yourself

Recently, I realized that over the years, my body has changed. Skin is not as smooth as it was, hair is not as shiny, figure is rounder… and I was not so happy about all that! I was starting to not like what I was becoming as I grow older. A few weeks ago, after what felt like a sprint of working long hours and days, I thought I deserved a reward! So I treated myself to a facial with a friend of mine being an amazing beautician. “Your skin is so dry…” was her first comment to me. HA!  Like this is something to be surprised when you live in a cold country for half of the year! Winter in Canada can be a bit brutal sometimes and this year was – let’s put it this way – brutal. She offered me the high moisturizing treatment and started to put a “rubbery feeling” type of mask on my face. I only had small holes to allow me breathing space and had to keep it for 20 some minutes. Well… when she removed the mask and put it in her hands, I almost fell off of the table!  Why? Because I saw the expression lines on it and how deep they were! I just knew something has happened to myself.  Something BIG! Let me explain something to you. A bit of background here I used to have wrinkles between each eyebrow. The kind of lines you see on someone dealing with stress and worries. The kind you see on someone frowning. A lot! But there, on the inside of that...
Don’t let things get to you…

Don’t let things get to you…

Don’t let things get to you Sisters. That’s what I kept repeating myself yesterday as I was reading my “long time no seen” newspapers. I haven’t had time to read it for over a month. Mind you, I only receive the weekend edition but anyway, the pile was getting higher and I had some “slow” time so I decided to take the bull by the horns and read them all. “Oh dear…  WHAT?  I can’t believe it…  OMG!!!  OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo…  We’re in trouble…  Please…” I noticed I was frowning more and more as I was going through the news (who were not so new after all that time! hahaha!) but mostly, and that worried me A LOT, that I stopped breathing and that I felt scared, worried, sad, upset and depressed… All my energy felt like melted caramel on a pile of ice cream. It was slowly going downhill! Not sticking at all but leaving and going down.  I was depressed!  YEAH! DEPRESSED!  And I felt bad/sad for my fellow human beings.  Started to wonder what is going to happen to us all?  And to the future generations?  Really… what’s with us? Can’t we see things, make things happen, make things better, DO BETTER?! And it hit me: if you want to shine a light in the world, you’ve got to take care of that light and not let things get to you. They are human experiences. Don’t take things too personally. SHINE!  Turn on the light. Do YOUR best. Smile at others. Keep your focus on the GOOD…  and your vibrations will reach the places they are needed....
