Wednesday Revelation!!

So one thing that I realized recently is that I was afraid of being and appearing “too much guided”…. as in… “I have to be responsible for myself, I don’t want other people to think that I am just following whatever guidance I get from wherever … I need to be and appear autonomous and self reliable and empowered, I can’t be pulling cards every day for every decision, bla, bla, bla…” As you can see it, I’m sure! … This was utter BS … There is no such thing as too much guidance, since I can only rely on my intuition and myself to actually guide my life. Other… Read More

Money, Money, Money …..

So as most of you know, I’ve turned 50 and decided to change my life … mostly to change the mindset … which of course changes everything ! One of my main focusing points this year is abundance … I decided to be abundant, to experience the feelings of profusion, opulence and wealth in all areas of my life. And yes, I also mean money. I dare write the word… I am not ashamed anymore to say that I’ve had a difficult relationship with money for most of my life… Feeling poor, being poor, being proud of being poor, being ashamed of being poor … And I very recently realized… Read More

The Dentist and the lessons learned…

So I woke up this morning and one of the first I read on Facebook is this small post by Citrine Gabriel Joyous: “Pay attention to your joints and teeth (bone health) today because Moon is in Capricorn” Then I remembered I had a dentist appointment today to deal with a cavity that appeared before my trip to Japan and that the dentist had just temporarily sealed, saying “we’ll have to deal with that when you come back”. Even though my dentist is the sweetest guy (I chose him for his kindness!), this did feel like a menace … When I did come back, I made an appointment …and waited… Read More

50 … omg

So today is my 50th birthday. And l’m not sure l take it very serenely… l might well be over-reacting but … for now I’m not so deliriously happy about it… I’m in the process of changing my whole life, going from: a monthly bleeding to a full on menopause … two kids at home to no kids at home a 9 to 5 job to a full time biz a well mastered profession to a a brand new one a steady if not abundant income to ???? a social media presence dedicated to “fun” to a professional use of social media which involves regularity an consistency and … feels… Read More

Why you shouldn’t, even if you can !

So… I have a cleaning woman.  I have had one for years.  She comes once a week and whirlwinds through the house, lifting the crap and the energy ! “Oh my God, but you’re not making that much money, how do you justify that expense ?” My usual answer was … “But you know I run a B&B with my husband, the house is nearly 1000m², I can’t do that all by myself and work outside, and handle the kids, and do the books, and …” Today I just answer… I’m OK sacrificing some other things to have a cleaning woman. She is very nice, I pay her a very… Read More

Push and pull … Springtime’s back ! What are you telling me now Mama Gaia ?

So if you had any doubts… Springtime is here…And the urgency of life flowing back up, up, up, up like the sap is soooo obvious and calling us (in the northern hemisphere!) to action, action, action, action … In the South west of France where I live, we are being bombarded with green, flowers, sun, birds, rain and generally … life! I love winter because it is a break, an interior voyage, a retreat … but … every year I can’t wait for it to end … Then springtime literally attacks … around here you can almost hear the plants growing, the trees stretching and the flowers blooming all over… Read More

Life, Philosophy and the washing machine …

So I run a B&B. And I have 28 beds. So I wash a lot of sheets, and so forth. So washing, hanging, ironing is mostly an everyday job… One that I’m excellent at. One that I do NOT enjoy that much… one of my zones of excellence, not of genius ! I have a real love/hate relationship with my washing machine. We have been closed for winter since December 1st. We’re opening next Saturday. The sealer for the glazed panel of the washing machine door is leaking … I bought a new one, online, thinking I was going to replace it myself easily, according to a YouTube tutorial …… Read More
