My first love (who I loved for 13 years as I write in my book The Knot in the Spiral) used to say to me that difficulty in human relationships come from the fact that each one of us live the same event in a different way. This is why we fight, don’t we? Not understanding each other is what makes us suffer.
Today I realize how jealousy between brothers and sisters can still be alive more than 10 years after the birth of a new baby. I chose to have even more compassion for my children.
I spent the last twelve years taking care of my children alone. During the first years, I even had a violent and abusive man in the house who made life very painful. It was exhausting.
Then I took care of the children as single mother and it was easier than living with a manipulator. However, I admit that I spent these past years rushing around all day in a frenzy. Being responsible for two kids requires so much logistics every time an appointment needs to be taken, whether at the dentist or the osteopath.
Today for the first time of my life as a mother, I feel I can finally breathe a bit more, take time to practice self-care and be a better mother as a result. My friend, my sister, yes indeed our children grow up so quickly. So, let’s make the most of their presence with us. They will rapidly go and live by themselves. Even if it is still challenging sometimes, I make a conscious effort to enjoy the present moment as a family. I am aware than the years to come are precious. I refuse to grow old and have regrets once the children are living by themselves.
Negative critics from other people reflect how they feel inside. Of course, a resentful and envious person will naturally be more critical of others than a happy human being. Moreover, how we look on the outside cannot tell everything about our life. Whenever someone chooses to use our external aspect to criticize ourselves, it has nothing to do with us.
The more I grow, the more I learn to deal with negative people in that way. Additionally, I am always stunned to witness hate towards wealthy people. I learned that badmouthing rich people attracts even more poverty. Attracting abundance into our life requires to have respect towards and to be happy for people who succeed and are wealthy. Then, abundance can flow into our life as well.
First step to rent a house in Tunisia: choosing an estate agent or contract directly with the landlord.
Second step: execute the contract by signing it in three original copies.
Third step: the landlord legalizes the three contracts at the town hall for TND 3.
Fourth step: the tenant legalizes the three contracts at the town hall for TND 0,750.
It is usual to sign a renting contract for a year, for inhabiting the property only (not for commercial purposes), with a one-month notice period. It will not be required that the tenant proves that he earns three times the amount of the rent.
This is such freedom compared to what happened to me in Paris, France. As single mother of two children, no landlord agreed to rent me a flat, even though I had pay slips to prove I earned three times the rent amount and I was under a contract of undetermined duration. I had to pretend I was single, then for the next flat one of my friend had to pretend he was my boyfriend and living with me. He was the one who had pay slips at the time. I was going back to college and only living on savings.
I love having freedom now. I savor every bit of it. I love choosing how I want to manage my life and my finances.
Whenever I travel somewhere, my first-aid essentials are activated charcoal, arnica homeopathic remedy, disinfectant and plasters.
After having lived for over seven years with my children in tiny studio flats, renting a house in which my kids will have their own room for the first time is a big achievement. In my book The Knot in the Spiral, I share how hard these years have been. More importantly, I share the techniques I used to rebuild my life. I rebuilt my life until I was able to rent a house with a bedroom for each of my kids.
I am delighted that Dan the Liferegenerator is publishing videos again on youtube. Check him out. He has a very unique style and is not politically correct. However, it is such a pleasure to listen to him. He reinforces my convictions as regard to raw food and fasting.
What about you, my friend, my sister? How will you use your voice? How will you choose to express yourself and, maybe, help someone at the other end of the world? The world needs your unique voice, how you express and what you have to share.
