I am back
And you know what?
For the first time, I took the time
No “I have to do”
I enjoyed the moment
Right in the morning, when taking my breakfast looking at the sea
When walking on the beach
Or taking a pause to enter a church and say a prayer
Even watching my little one playing with old toys, found in the attic
I tend to think that I do this all the time
I am just good at persuading myself that I do it
That I excel in it
When I just struggle to be in the present.
Long talks with friends
Laughing a lot
And realising that life does not have to be so hard
I don’t have to be so perfect
Best friends are the best to remind you that you are just perfect the way you are
You don’t have to fake with them
You don’t have to pretend
You just have to take a chocolate bar, a piece of bread and eat it under the sun, feeling you are invincible
And gorgeous too!
A bit of time for myself too
Go for a walk, a bicycle ride
Meet new babies
Enjoy kids playing together
Looking at little ones growing up
And yet thinking it’s life and all is just perfect this way
Watching them learning on their own and be ready to let go of your hand a bit more every day
Seeing them be free and at peace and ready for the next step and running towards you for a hug when you least expect it
Hard days too
When you feel you can’t handle tantrums anymore
And finally being able to relax and enjoy the evening story.
In harmony with nature, the sun, the rain, little birds, the sand, the clouds
Looking at life with different eyes
And feeling really blessed for the first time in a long time…
And you, tell me all about your holiday?
