2019: The year I accept who I am
This year, instead of working my holidays around my job, I’ve decided to work my job around my holidays!
Wait I know what you think: ”Oh God, what is she up to now??”
I’m up for living my life the way I want i! It’s scary, I know. But I’m willing to take the risk! And if you think that’s impossible and unreasonable and what not: Watch me!
But because I know myself too well (workaholic, perfectionist in desperate need of others’ validation and approval of everything I do in life), I KNEW I had to plan my holidays for the entire year first week of January, before I even had a chance to go back to work and before other people even had a chance to wish me Happy New Year! That means that by 2nd of Jan, I had already crossed out several weeks on my new baby pink Agenda from Le Bon Marché (gifted by Grandma of course, I would have never spent that much money on an Agenda…). I was going to keep the perfectly normal and boring navy blue Agenda from work but the Universe had better plans for me! Good! I had better plans for myself!
By 2nd Jan, I had bought me and Boyfriend tickets to France (didn’t even ask him…), and by 6th Jan we had our tickets to Cancún!
On this year’s Agenda:
7-10 Feb: Long weekend in the woods, Charentes, France…
28 Feb to 5 March: Grandma’s 90th birthday in Paris!
15-29 April: Cancún, Mexico
August: I disappear…
December: I become a temporay barista at my mom’s coffee shop in Portland, USA
What about stability you say? Let me tell you what I’ve learned about myself and stability in 2018:
The only stable thing I know of myself is that I’ve never had a stable life. I was born and raised and became an adult and continue to grow between countries, cultures and languages.
Because of this unsettling life, there was a time when I craved for stability and routine. I created that for myself and got bored of it, understanding that my personality and my soul were calling me to have a different life.
2018 was the year I learned that there is no point in me going against my true nature, and that when I actually accept myself as I am, and embrace my free-spirit, I am a much happier woman, comfortable in my body and much more attractive! People come to me because of my joie-de-vivre, they are inspired because I’m living my life the way I want to. Everyone knows (especially men) that when women are happy, the world is a better place! I’m a better daughter, a better coach, a better friend. When I accept, and consciously embrace my true nature, I am a better human being! Simple!
And I’m not saying that stability is bad or boring, I’m just saying that I am a free-spirit, I love my freedom, I love to move and explore what the world has to offer. I love travelling and meeting new people, push my own bounderies. That is my nature!
Whatever your nature is, embrace it, don’t make it wrong! You’ll be a lot more fulfilled, loving and you’ll attract those who are aligned with your true self.
Try it out, and tell me how it goes! Scary, but exhilirating!
