The greatest adventure!

Subjects come and go
There’s always something
We ought to look at
Or our garden can quickly got
Hundreds of weeds everywhere
Looking like a forgotten land
Bad dream

Step by step
Getting to know ourselves
Great discoveries ahead of us
Only if we take the road
If we’re ready to listen to the call

No rush
We’ve got a lifetime
But waiting too long
Can make us fear the start
Too many rocks on the way
Too many bridges to cross
Too many subjects we used to hide away from

Step by step
Giving ourselves the chance
Of the greatest adventure:
The journey towards our heart!

Our own best friend!

People
Part of our lives
Making it easy or hard
Walking with us on the path
Cheering us up when we feel down

People
Lights on the way
When hours are tough
And our hearts know nothing but chaos
Ears open to mend the broken pieces

People
We tend to give them our power
Feel lonely when alone
We may want them to give us more
To be different so they can match our list of expectations

People are part of our lives
They don’t make it
They are part of the deal
But our happiness doesn’t depend on them

We are the true masters of our own life
People can add to it
But if we don’t become our own best friend
People will never make it for the loss

All start and finish within
People are our in-between

Our truth lies within darkness

There is something inside
That we hide
Something we don’t want others to see

We don’t want to know
It could burn our eyes
It could destroy the image we have

There is a part of darkness
A stream of shadows
Hanging around

There is unfolded nightmares
Anger and violence
Jealousy and pain

Until we are ready to face
Our dark side
With an open heart

We’ll never know the truth of who we are

In Between…

Between security and chaos
I stand

Still at times
Like a tightrope walker
Unaware of the empty space
Under my feet
Confident in my skills
Wearing joy and serenity like a second skin

Lost at times
Like a defensless warrior
Emotions taking me down
Making me vulnerable
Full of insecurities
Feeling trapped in my own body

This is me
In between

Looking for more freedom
And then despising it
Looking for solitude
And then wishing to get close to someone
Aiming for more independance
And then feeling like I am missing something

Me and my
Discrepancies

Knowing who I am
Losing me again

Finding my balance
Searching for it again

At peace within myself
Wishing to be different
When nothing makes sense
Anymore

Learning
Day after day
To welcome all of me

Strenghs and weaknesses
Falls and victories
Deep emotions
Wish to feel no more

Learning to love me
Each day
Making this my priority

Happy 2020!

We got one month, but let’s do it now!

First of all, thank you for your support and your words. Reading you feels so good in happy times and harsh ones too. We all know these fleeting moments of pure joy or complete despair. Knowing that we are never alone is such a special treat. Together we are stronger, always.

Time to wish you a beautiful, bright, joyful year 2020. I don’t know why but I love this number, all round and sweet. It gives me the sensation that the year is going to be positive and full of awesomness.

May 2020 keeps you and your loved ones in good health so you can enjoy every single moment. May it gives you projects to bring to life, dreams to dwell on, words to live by.

May it be a year of sharing good times and meeting new people, of travels and discoveries, of time doing the things you love, of finding your balance, your peace, of getting closer to who you are, of letting go when you can, of loving yourself – pure and unconditionnal love.

I wish you the best and even more!

Learning always…

I am learning. The ups and downs. In search of my balance always. Every day, acknowledging what’s working and what’s not.

The need to get in touch with me and the failure of not being able to do so. Most of the time. Except maybe when silence is on play, when lights are down.

I am learning to accept it, this place of bruises, place of emptiness. Never being sure. Always doubting.

I left fear and I thought I would never feel this way again. And yet, it’s another kind of fear. One that needs care so I can defy it every single day.

I wanted to be strong. And yet I am not. Embracing it makes it less painful. I feel the urge to open my eyes, to let the words flow, to open the door so I can stand on the edge and stop hidding, stop saying ok when it’s not, stop behaving like all is under control, stop pretending.

Maybe this is my chance.

Of being human. And learning to let go, after all. Day by day. Layer by layer. Till I can look at myself in the mirror and only feel love. For who I am. Without control and conditions. Without wanting to be different.

Let me be…me

Let me breath
Let me be

Not the way you imagined me
Just the way I am

Messy at times
Unsure of what to say
And how to say it

Loud and insecure
Raising my voice against things
You think are not worth fighting for

Let me see the best in others
Even if you think it’s naive

Let me go my way
Even if not the way you’d take

Let me smile and cry
And say some days are too much
I can’t cope and that’s fine
Tomorrow will be better

I know it would be easier for you
If I could fit in boxes
If I could follow a road that many took before
Knowing where the footprints are

But it would mean being someone I am not
I did it for too long
I don’t want it anymore…
