Vernal Equinox – Spring

29430equinox_inner

While we enter the new season, something has been cracking inside of me. It’s going to burst out all kind of things; flowers, colours and much different stuff. It comes like the tides, with high and low moments of freedom, insight, revelations, much new information still in process of downloading.

Spring is the time of rebirth. It’s the time when the seeds are ready to bloom. We leave behind the dark and cold days to receive the fullness of life.

The Final Cut*

 

86iet

I now realize it’s been almost half a year since the last time I wrote here. Nothing wrong about it, of course, I’ve already stated I’m not a blogger anymore, I just keep my label as a writer who writes whenever suits her.. And that’s fine.

Things have been speeding up this last half year. My last entry went about how freedom was something in the mind, something you realize it’s not about hiding your grieve and faking a mask of happiness. This has been really clear to me through all these months lately.

It’s like when you gain new knowledge and information, about yourself, about the world, and then suddenly you discover that everything you thought was real it just isn’t. That emptiness can be really scary.

Freedom is a state of mind

large

My heart has been pounding from one state of mind to another. Wondering along the way which state was better to hold on, I grabbed my own self many times wishing there was only one way to fulfil my hungry heart.
It seems to me that this wondering attracts also lots of instability, doubt and feelings such as failure, disappointment and yes, sadness. Why? Because that’s what happens when you do your best not to feel, when you shut yourself up to the old and decide that all pain you’ve been going through it’s enough. Finito.

Live to tell* (Going nuts in Paris)

35c6ea2c8d7c1bace5540ac488cb7a8d

Today is exactly a week ago that I literally came back to life. I was spending last Sunday Easter day my time with a good friend in beautiful city of lights, Paris, France.
It’s been exactly 21 years ago since I’ve been in this lovely city. My friend Octavio was coming to Europe and after deciding it wasn’t possible for us to meet in the Netherlands; we gave up the hope of seeing each other again.
Later on, I had the brilliant idea to fly to Paris and spend this long weekend with him. It was possible, and everything was arranged for us to spend this Easter weekend together. So I flew by plane on Friday afternoon and we met at the airport. It was quite an experience for me, since it was a long month since my bike accident and I wasn’t going out that much due to the injury in my knee.
Anyway, we spend some nice time together until Sunday.

What We Talk About When We Talk About Love*

Finally I can say I’m back here again! After a long time trying to put the domain and site together, now finally I can come back to my writing. It’s been a long time, and not only I sort of decided to climb my own mountain of silence, I just didn’t feel like posting anything anywhere anymore. Sounds like an ultimatum, I know.. And indeed it had to do with my last incursions in the online dating world.
After my first and, up to now, the only date I had, I did give it a try to continue finding that special someone online. It has been quite an experience, I must say.

To Tinder or not to Tinder

tinder-app

After a month or two on Tinder I can’t call myself an expert, and I also wouldn’t like to get that label at all! But I came up with some tips and ideas, especially for the men out there.
After I decided to give it a try, convinced by my best friend of course, got some tips from her on how to choose randomly, what to say about myself, etc. At first sight it looks kind of exciting to have the chance to take a look into the hundreds (or more!) of profiles this free app is constantly offering. It’s worse than publicity! You’re bombed one after the other, swiping left for a Nope (I don’t like) and swiping right for Like (it’s obvious). No matter how many profiles you are swiping one way or the other, it will continue until you drop dead.

In the mood for love*

index

It’s been a long way for me to rebirth. Since my last post about Happiness, how to measure it when you’re under lots of stress, personal changes and master the art of balance within emptiness, I’m now feeling free to write again.
Since mid-September up to now I’ve been experiencing major changes in my whole path. Today I feel fulfilment and grace. And this wasn’t easy at all, many obstacles throughout the way, moments I thought I was going to burst into tears and just wanted to leave it all behind. Anyway, life has made me stronger than what I thought I was capable of. And now, not only I feel free to write, I’m also happy to do it.
After a long-term relationship that was already broken for longer than 2 years, I finally took the decision to move forward. To run into the emptiness of not knowing how it was going to be, being a single mom living abroad without family or resources, trusting the process of growing up and accepting life as it comes.
In this sense, I know there’s much still to come, and indeed time can heal all our wounds, but it is up to us how we master resilience when all we want is to step back.

Celebrating my life as much as I can

Image

Well, glad I’m back to you here. It’s been almost a week ago I wrote for the last time, even my own other blogs have been left aside. The reasons are that we are having a fantastic weather in Holland, and I’m, yes, enjoying and celebrating it!

Kids are on holidays, so we are having less schedules and timetables to do things every day. We can finally enjoy the sun; go to the beach and going around. Finally having the great excuse to join with friends and having some cool beers in the garden or outside!

Summer is for me THE time for celebration. Not only because I love the weather, also because my birthday comes on sight. And this time I feel like celebrating with the world!

But just waiting for a season in the year to celebrate is obviously not enough! In the Netherlands there are many rituals and traditions to celebrate all kinds of things. What about the celebration of yourself? Not only going out with friends, also to celebrate who you are, what you’ve achieved, giving you the love you need to continue doing great. It can be because of you, your work, your studies, and your family, whatever. Everything counts.
