I wanted to share a few things with you this week, but I was grabbed by time and didn’t share anything… but I decided not to put pressure on my regarding my publication frequency on the blog, so…
Today, I wanna change a little bit my habit and was inspired by Anik, who shares every week her Gratitude Friday and freely changes the “rule”, which I like a lot.
I wanted to thank people who had/have a role in my life has it is today. So it both a themed Gratitude Friday and kind of a “chain” one.
I am really thankful for having:
▧ The #1 in my Heart: Mamounette, my mum. She is a Warrior Goddess who is not aware she is one, she is a Fighter and I am proud to be her daughter. She never lets me down and always cheers me up when I need it the most; she knows I don’t speak but she reads in me like an opened book, even while I’m thousand miles away. She’s the best mum ever.
▧ My father, which I barely do not know, even if it makes some effort to fix this fact as he can. I learn to accept him as he is and not as I imagined him during my childhood. I appreciate he tries to build a relationship with me, even if we met only once, I was 22 years old. Its absence forces me to grow up sooner.
▧ My aunties, D. & M. even if the last one died more than a decade ago, her death modeled who I am now. It’s weird how the absence of someone influences maybe more than the presence itself. Auntie D. was always there for me, and she is really close to my Mum; I know she takes care of her.
▧ The friends that were in and out of my life, from early childhood until now. Friendship is something I really have difficulty with, trust and keep a friend over the years… Most of my friends are from the Internet, but I met most of them in real life, we seperated by an ocean but I now it’s a matter of time until we see each other again, I feel that with some (the women I call my “Soul-Sisters”, Paola/Sophie/Cocotte/Isa, for example), we have something to build (I wink at my friend Sophie, I’m sure she knows what i am talking about, this gut feeling). It’s hard to go on when you feel betrayed, but I learnt the hard way that our heart is meant to be open. There is no coincidence and in every bad moment/meet, there is a positive life lesson hidden.
▧ The boys I fell in love with. I only have three real couple relationships, as the adage says “the third one is the good one”, it was true for me. I would not have met Anthony without the two previous relationships, I learnt a lot through them, so I am thankful even if I was badly hurt at the end of each one.
▧ Anthony, the One, my SoulMate, the love of my life. I am so thankful he entered in my life more than six years ago and that he is still there (I’m not always an easy going woman, I confess). Thanks to him, I gave birth to two wonderful girls.
▧ The pagan community, who taught me a lot when I needed it during teenagehood, and where I met some amazing persons (yes, you). Today I am not a part of it as I was before, I went away for a path that suits me better.
▧ The blogosphere in general, full of people willing to change the World as they can, sharing their gifts. It is full of nuts but I only want to see the beautiful souls out there, it is really a web.
▧ Thank you to S. and Alice, who gave me a glance to the wonderful life that is in front of me.
▧ Thank you to all of you who entered my life, even without knowing you are a part of it. You inspire me.
▧ And finally, I want to acknowledge myself for being me, because my Soul chose this body, these two parents I have, this path, with all the obstacles on it, the encounters I had and will have, the doubts, the wonders, the creepy things, the rainbows. No, everything is not written, I have to power to build my life as I want it to be, but the big facts are chosen from before my birth.
Woo and thank you for having read all of this if you did 😉
ENJOY THE JOURNEY.
