One member of our beautiful community asked me why I decided to go and live in Tunisia, Africa.
First I love this country for a reason which is difficult to explain. I feel like the spirit of this country is running through my veins. I feel like I am 9 years old again when I am in Tunisia. The air feels familiar. The magnificent ever-present sun, the softness of the weather, the beautiful blue sky together create a magical bubble. I feel I live in paradise. I feel like I can really fulfill my mission in Tunisia. Had I stayed in Paris, I would have gotten very ill.
Second, I wanted to go and live in Portugal because it was in the European Union. However I could not find schools where classes were taught in French for my kids. On the contrary, it is easy to find French schools in Tunisia.
Two middle-aged men helped me tremendously since I arrived in my new country.
They confided in me that 20 years ago, people helped them when they were in France and were strangers like I am in their country today.
Today they feel like giving part of what they received back then.
I also recall this amazing woman who helped me escape a toxic relationship many years ago.
I felt bad at the time because while I was receiving so much help I could not give anything back. I was exhausted and depleted during that time.
She whispered to me: “One day you will give too“.
Even if we did not give to the person who helped us, we can always give today to another person and feel part of this beautiful giving chain. Receiving with grace and giving with pleasure.
Express yourself my friend my sister! Dance, sing, write or record youtube videos!
Shall you need to be inspired by which equipment can be used to record youtube videos, I have two additions to my existing gear.
I needed a Rode Microphone Cable:
and a “GoPro Compatible Fotopro mini phone tripod“:
I am still happily using my Samsung Galaxy A8:
This was my first equipment video: “Which gear do I use to record videos? One way of doing it #equipment“.
Recently I bit my tongue so hard that I could hardly speak. Probably magnesium deficiency. I will add more raw cacao to my diet.
Anyway, it taught me not to take my ability to speak whenever I want for granted.
Your voice matters my friend my sister. Please do not take your ability to speak for granted. Freedom of speech did not always exist. Knowing how to express yourself in multiple languages is a true gift; use it.
I am grateful, for my mic and for my phone. I am grateful for youtube for being a free platform which enriches my life so much.
It is so easy to fall into the trap of thinking other women have a better life than us.
I love to smile and share beautiful photos.
However, it is also my duty to share personal struggles. When my son says to me that he is not sure I love him and steals money from me, I feel the pain.
You are not alone in this.
Life can be tough. But nothing is for ever. Not even pain and sadness. Hang in there sister.
I am so happy to share with you sister. Sending you positive vibes and wishing you a magnificent day.
