About power.

The question is not about whether or not you do have power, but rather,How much do you know about it?How do you want to use it?How much are you willing to use it?For what/who?

I feel I am strongest when I can hone in on mesages and questions that are really important to me, hoping it can help my community. In the mean time the quest gives me self-reflection and peace.

Tribute n˚80

The people who really left a mark on me were never the ones who told me how to think, what to love or what to fear. Rather, they asked me questions I never thought asking myself before I met them.

It's about seeking wisdom instead of moving with assumption.

Tribute n˚79

Achieving is rarely as joyful as anticipating.

It’s the feeling of love we choose everyday for them that makes us happy, not them.

It’s all in you and it goes through you

Let it go without burdening you

It always comes back,

Brighter, stronger, just trust it will never pass you.

Tribute n˚78

Don't resent heartbreaks.

Sometimes the Heart has to be broken, to (crack) open.

(Plus, broken hearts make the best lovers;))

Tribute n˚77

About Rejection. (sigh)

We, Humans, come from a tribal system. When others were needed for survival (food, safety...), rejection meant death.

Be socially validated is still now essential to us: we are hardwired for human connection.\

When you meet someone whose soul is not in alignement with yours, send them love, love yourself more by not taking it personal, grief if necessary, and move along.

Don't be caught up in shame: studies shows that people who experienced higher pains of rejection had higher rates of survival because they were able to adapt their behavior more quickly. Rejection served a huge vital function in our evolutionary history.

Sometimes rejection is divine protection. Make sure to use rejection to reshape your behavior and learn to be better at being yourself (this was not meant for you, honey! Believe that your blessings would never pass you).

With that being said;

true rejection is when you restrict yourself from asking.

Not asking is the worst form of self-limitation and rejection, because it is, by default, already rejecting your own self.

I send you love dear self-lovers,

About Creativity.

Best is, when it comes through you, not from you.

The difference lies in the ego: when you let it go, creativity isn’t short-lived anymore, it does not exist to feed any purpose but itself, it just flows.

Best is, when it comes through you.

Tribute n˚75

About "mistakes".

That's why they put rubbers on the end of pencils.

(make sure not to erase the lesson though, and do not forget to draw flowers around them with birds in the skies and a big bright sun.)

Tribute n˚74

Experiencing is the ultimate meaning of life.

It is, love, beauty, pain, grief. It can be in ourselves, people or Nature.

Experiencing is the ultimate salvation of life.

The gap between what you have achieved and what you want to achieve in the future should not create frustration, but purpose and meaning.

Embrace it.

Tribute n˚73

About conviction.

Your conviction and convenience do not live on the same block. They do not share zip codes or email addresses, dresses and shorts. If you want to grow beyond your limited beliefs, there must be a willing force that drives you further. There must be a willing force that repeats this mantra:

i am worthy.

Tribute n˚72

They say the truth hurts.

(yeah fine)

But they never tell you there’s more power in sharing hurt, or telling your truth. (same thing)

That's the fastest way one can grow.

(ask the flowers)

Tribute n˚70

Failure is a feeling way before it shows its actual results.

It's a belief, engrained in our mind that keeps us enslaved to it, locking us in fear.
Success is a feeling way before it shows its actual results. 

It’s a mindset, engrained in our mind that keeps us trying. It's the last trial after a thousand unsuccessful ones nobody talks about.

If you haven’t tried today, you have definitely failed.

Tribute n˚69

Late bloomers still rise

She is taking her time

She is getting it right

She might be the slowest growing flower

She might have been overlooked or not treated right,

But she knows, when facing the sky,

Late bloomer still rise.

Tribute n˚68

Do you see?

I remember when this dream of yours was just a twinkle in your eyes.It already looked and felt like success.You see, success is a feeling, a mindset, way before it becomes actual, visible results.

You see?

Tribute n˚67

Don’t let your privileges make you blind to someone else's pain.

Use them to be a better listener and human, to extend your compassion.

We are all teachers.

We teach ourselves and others how to treat ourselves and others, by the action we take or choose not to, by the things we say or don't.

And when the skies are grey, let's ask ourselves how to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.

Tribute n˚65

Is it easier to forget about hurt or does pleasure always comes first?

Sometimes you have to let some bodies go to get closer to your truth.

Sometimes it takes a while for you to understand that this is not meant for you.

In those moments, before fear invades me, I remember:

"my blessings have my name written on them".

Tribute n˚64

Those lovers who laugh silently, when they laugh out loud, they send a tidal wave of shivers down our spine, our heart laughs so much it could cry.

Make them laugh today,

Send love their way,

The world definitely needs it.

Thank you for reading me every week,

I send you love,

Tribute n˚63

About Resistance.

The force of resistance comes from within and is commonly expressed in procastination. But you know what the good news is?

It will NEVER leave.

Resistance is natural. Everybody feels it, to a certain degree.

The mind does not like change, as any discomfort is felt like a potential threat.

However, resistance points us to our true calling. Indeed, it is the proof that we experience fear. And where there is fear, there is care.

If you keep on pushing during this minute you are supposed to sit at your desk, this resistance will get lower and lower. 

Do not wait for the inspiration to come and get you, go (sit) and get it.

Have a productive week, dear self-lovers!

Tribute n˚62

When we talk politics, the closest we get to Love is "tolerance", which is, very, very different from Love.

I would be mocked if I dare to use the word Love in politics. Why?
Love isn't just roses and heart emojis. Love is hard work, Love is ennobling, Love is commitment. Love is realising: " I am you. They are us. We are one."
Let's spread the Love today, dear self-lovers, the world needs it.
