When Justine from #Blogdunepartageuse ask you questions

I was so happy to answer Justine’s questions from her French blog.

1. Are you happy in your life?

Yes I am happy, even the moments of sadness do not dim my happiness. Now I welcome such moments with compassion for myself.

2. What is your biggest passion?

I love teaching, helping people learn new skills. I realize that even when I was a child I would pretend to be a teacher with kids from the neighborhood.

Even at university, I would help classmates understand stuff. I would use examples to make my friends learn and laugh at the same time.

3. Who do you admire the most?

Oprah Winfrey. She gave me the spark to walk towards my dreams.

She is the example. I find her just fascinating.

I would love to have a friend like her. I am sure we would have a good laugh together!

4. If you were to choose a song, which one would that be?

I choose the French lullaby “A la claire fontaine” because this is the one I sung to my premature baby at the intensive care unit.

I was so distressed to see him with tubes everywhere. I thought it would be soothing to him to hear me sing.

This French lullaby is the first song which came into my head at this dramatic moment.

5. If you were to choose a movie?

I liked Crash. I love when we go above prejudices, biases, judgements.

I love when we can welcome the other, the one who is different, the one we do not understand.

Oh and I have a thing for Don Cheadle because he reminds me of an incredible man I deeply loved.

6. What are your 3 best qualities?

I am naturally enthusiastic, smiling a lot without thinking of it and I don’t give up when I start a project.

7. A shortcoming?

I sometimes believe crazy thoughts running in my head.

8. What is the most courageous thing you ever did in your life?

I escaped a toxic relationship even though I believed it when the abuser told me he would commit suicide if I dared to leave him. Of course he didn’t because that was only a threat to make me feel guilty.

9. How are your relationships with people?

Very contrasted. Either I immediately feel a sense of belonging and ease, or I feel something is off and weird. In the latter case, I simplt distance myself from those persons.

10. What is nature for you?

A refuge. A place where I experience true peace.

What do you believe in? Spirituality? Fairies? Angels? Religion? ….

All of the above. Moreover, I beleive in a higher power, something bigger than me that protects me.

Are you the kind of person who do what they say and say what they do? If this is the case, thank you, because such coherence is important to me.

How to prevent our #children and #teens from drinking #alcohol ?

How to prevent our #children and #teens from drinking #alcohol ?

My parents never warned me about the dangers of alcohol. Nevertheless, I do not drink a single drop. How?

Simply because I witnessed how alcohol can be deadly. Three teenagers I knew died when I was in high school because they had drunk before driving home. I witnessed the erratic behavior of drunk people at parties. I tried to drink this beverage and was disgusted by the taste.

In my humble opinion, being open to our children about the damages of alcohol is the best prevention. We cannot be behind their backs 24/7. However, we can speak to them like the intelligent beings they are. We can explain how alcohol hurts the brain and the whole body, how it has the capacity to ruin people’s lives.

Lastly, I feel the best way to prevent our children and teenagers from drinking alcohol is simply to be sober. Do not drink. Lead by example.

Why am I eating sardines after 3 years of 100% #rawvegan lifestyle?

Why am I eating sardines after 3 years of 100% #rawvegan lifestyle?

I cultivate flexibility not rigidity. I have been eating 100 % raw vegan for over 3 years now.

However, I found myself salivating at the idea of eating sardines when I was reading The clarity cleanse by Doctor Habib Sadeghi as sardines are part of his detox protocol.

I felt like eating some recently and I did it sister!

In my humble opinion, listening to our body is so much more important than following any kind of diet.

I eat raw because I absolutely love it. So I am keeping a raw vegan lifestyle but for 99.9%.

I was also inspired to remain flexible after hearing Shakaya Leone who I love very much in the video “Ex-Vegan (15 Years): Veganism Is Not Sustainable – It’s a “Cleanse,” Not Nourishing“.

Lastly I highly recommend the book The clarity cleanse for more emotional and physical detox and diet tips.

The Clarity Cleanse: 12 Steps to Finding Renewed Energy, Spiritual Fulfillment, and Emotional Healing:

To be #present for our children and to practice #selfcare ? Impossible?

To be #present for our children and to practice #selfcare ? Impossible?

To be a mum and to do my best yes, to be perfect no. Human rather.

I share with my children how I sometimes feel torn between taking care of myself, practicing my morning routine to give the best of myself to them, and to be present with them, to simply be fully aware with them.

In this regard, I really like the Inspire Nation video “JONATHAN ROBINSON: 10 Second Shortcuts to Pure Awakened Awareness! | Spiritual Awakening Exercises“.

Why is it of the utmost importance to be happy for what we have now? #gratitude

 

Why is it of the utmost importance to be happy for what we have now? #gratitude

I teach my children to be grateful for what they have here and now.

I explain to them that if we do not have a deep appreciation for what is present in our life, it may disappear.

Furthermore, it goes both ways.

The happier I am about what I have in my life in the present moment, the more joy and bliss I get to experience.

#Transgenders are #normal and teach us #authenticity

#Transgenders are #normal and teach us #authenticity

I don’t care what they say. I don’t care if they tell you you’re not normal.

Please let go of their judgement, their hate, their pettiness, their narrow mind and constricted heart.

I don’t care if you’re different.

I don’t care if you’re weird.

I don’t care if you do not conform to the standards of advertisement and society.

I don’t care if you were born a man and became a woman or if you were born a woman and became a man.

I don’t care at all because underneath everything… we are all humans. One big family. One. Just one.

Please watch “Transgender (Ask Teal Episode on Transgender and Transsexuality) – Teal Swan” if you want to know how transgenders teach us authenticity.
