Can you believe it’s already been a year since I started doing the challenge set up by the French blogger Justine from Blog d’une partageuse? It’s been really fun and it has increased my self awareness, which goes perfectly with this month’ theme. Hence, the question of the month is: Which lesson have you been taught this month?
Well, every area of my life taught me a lesson this month.
At work, I learned that I should ask questions and put a step forward even if everything looks overwhelming. I use an online accounting platform named Dougs.
In relationships, I was blown away by a post on Instagram from a French author named Morgane Ortin. Her book Amours solitaires is a collection of SMS about love and desire, very cool. In her post, she was writing about what love isn’t, notably love is not wanting to belong to the other nor wanting the other to belong to us. I was shocked because I am a very romantic person who was seeking an absolute form of love, as if belonging to each other was a proof of true love. I was wrong. Belonging is not love.
In well-being, I learned another spiritual benefit of fasting, thanks to French naturopath Fabien Moine. Thus, when you fast you cannot escape through mild addictions, such as food. Therefore, you are face to face with your deep self and questions such as: What did I do with my life? How can I continue to live in accordance with my core values? I love that awareness.
Lastly, the photo of the month is a cat who befriended me in a Cat Bar in the South of France. You can enjoy food while the rescued cats take a nap nearby on the sofas. They are available for adoption for people with a big heart. Such a good idea.
Lots of love my friend my sister, Claire
