When was the last time you did something you were afraid of?

When was the last time you did something you were afraid of? When was the last time you challenged yourself? Challenging ourselves as difficult as it gets can be a tremendous opportunity. Fear, should not hold us back when it comes to doing things we have no doubt would make us smarter, wiser and greater in spirit. Fear is an indicator. Sometimes it shows us what we should not do. Often it shows us exactly what we should do. One of the things that sadden me most is seeing individuals with tremendous potential who do not take concrete steps closer to their aspirations. I have observed throughout the years that this inaction often comes from fear. Fear not to be good enough, […]

How to manage your time wisely

How to manage your time wisely? Managing your time wisely essentially means being conscious of the energy you get. To me, it makes no doubt that time-management skills start within. Managing your time wisely is not about doing work or doing something all the time. It means getting to know yourself enough to understand, when, how, where, you will give the best of yourself and most importantly why. It means being mindful. Developing the different parts of your personality is key to living a balanced life. I am convinced that to be truly accomplished you need to respect and give space to do the things that bring you joy and that are in accordance with your vision. It is a great thing to go […]

Mis-Education : questionnements et reconstruction

Mis-Education : questionnements et reconstruction Mis-education, ce mot anglais, fait référence à une éducation lacunaire, pouvant nuire. Selon moi, il est avant tout question d’une perspective tellement naturelle et normale qu’elle a été internalisée. Une philosophie, qui bien que bénéfique pour certains, se révèle dévastatrice pour nous même car contraire à notre authenticité. Mon usage du mot mis-education est inspiré de deux œuvres m’ayant fortement influencées.  Un livre et un album qui m’ont encouragé à déconstruire des systèmes de pensée et des manières d’être. Puis, de reconstruire d’autres modèles davantage viables car en accord avec ma personnalité. Les études, le travail les différents types d’intelligence, le rôle des femmes dans nos cultures, la multi-potentialité, la confiance en soi, la créativité, […]

Your money or your life? : On burn outs

Your money or your life? : on Burn outs How can you make time for self-care when you have one, two or three demanding jobs? How can you make time for self-care when you need to work substantially to eat and pay the bills? How can you make time for self-care when you are struggling by yourself with no parent or partner to take care of you? Is self-care a privilege for people who have loads of money or people with no obligations? Absolutely not. I am convinced that money does not have to be a nightmare. There is no need to prioritizes it over your own well-being. In our society, because everyone is moving so fast, we are encouraged to […]

Fatherless daughters: a social and self-love issue Distancing yourself emotionally and putting self-care at the centre of your philosophy. Understanding that even though the situation will always affect you, it does not have to hurt you can be ways to heal as fatherless daughters. Being a fatherless daughter is too often rationalised. It is not enough considered as a social issue.  The lack of acknowledgement is an obstacle regarding the healing process of those daughters. There need to be more mechanisms, social projects, digital resources, mentoring projects regarding this issue. To this day those are unattainable to many  fatherless daughters. Being fatherless makes you more vulnerable to depression and anxiety. Fatherlessness can impact daughters differently depending on its nature, on the daughter […]

Life After University: The art of being comfortable with the uncomfortable

Life After University: The art of being comfortable with the uncomfortable   Being comfortable with the uncomfortable, being at ease with the unknown, being mentally stable when external circumstances are unstable is to date one of the most challenging journeys I have consciously decided to embark on. After university, you are finding yourself outside this comfortable and save space where things are pretty predictable and comforting. This environment in which you know exactly the direction you are heading toward and the opportunities you can create for yourself. After this time, the journey is all about adjustment and flexibility. Sometimes, it feels that your potential does not match your reality at all and the efforts put in bettering your situation do not […]
