This familly trip helped me to put some things into perspective. I don’t know if it’s the fact that we were away from our routine, or the spring that is coming with its promises, but I feel more peaceful.
And I realised that I am done with the guilt. I had to make peace with myself. I love Emma and will always do. She was everything to me. I was so proud to be her mother. But there was nothing else I could do to protect her. Nobody could do it. At least, not yet.
Emma wouldn’t want to see me as sad as I was this last months. And I made her a promise I need to keep.
So here I am, full of good will to change what needs to be changed. Oh, it won’t be a tsunami of any kind, just a soft wind. I will start with my home, making it the place I know it can be, peaceful and happy. And I will start to take care of myself, doing exercices, meditation and this kind of things that makes you feel good. I will not bring my work things at home. I really need to keep the drama there. There is no place for it in my ‘new life’. So if it means stoping by the gym on my way home, I will. I need to find a new balance. And I will.
So this week, let’s take a time realising that even if we go through hard time, this is what makes us grow… and what better season than spring to experiment that?
Here is the challenge for this week:
quote: « Often it’s the deepest pain which empowers you to grow into your highest self. »
Here are the rules of the challenge:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this challenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
And here is my card:
