In June 2019, I left a country I was in love with for such a long time, Tunisia, Africa. I explained the details of my choice in the video “How was March 2019 or #myownmonth“.
In June 2019, I was left by a man I was in love with for such a long time, and the shock was tremendously painful.
The photo of the month is a puppy dog we named Piment (Hot Pepper in French). He took refuge in front of my door in Tunisia.
I didn’t realized immediately but he had a piece of string around his neck, which was slowly chocking him to death. His neck was as big as his head.
Thanks to my daughter and my neighbor, we saved his life (maybe you saw it on my IG stories @clairesamuelenglish). He stayed in my garden for a night. He was covered by insects.
The following day, I could see so much gratitude and joy into his eyes. It was a big contrast because he seemed so scared the day before.
For a weird reason, the eyes of this puppy stayed in me and gave me strength to overcome that month of June.
Piment was gifted to shepherds who take care of sheep among the olive trees fields in my neighborhood. He will have a good life.
The question of the month asked by Justine from the French Blog d’une partageuse is:
Which fear do I decide to overcome?
Sincerely, even killing a scorpion myself does not scare me anymore so I would say that my biggest fear is to be happy at last. Yes, at some point, it is time to stop all these complicated and painful things.
I want to overcome my fear to have an easy life. I don’t need to suffer to be worthy of living nor to expiate faults I am not guilty of. I want to make the most of life, build my future with a man and be able to be of service to others by living fully.
It makes me think of the message in the books of Marianne Williamson, which affirms that we are not afraid of our shadow but of our light and its power.
