Nurturing Thursday: moments

We do not remember days, we remember moments.

Cesare Pavese

I took this photo on monday, I was preparing the dinner when I saw all this light coming into the kitchen, quickly I got my phone and shot it. The next minute the light was gone.

I’m in love with this photo and what means to me, a moment. In a moment everything can change, if I wasn’t in the right angle I hadn’t seen this frame. I don’t know if things are meant to be or it’s only coincidence or if it is up to us realize and pay attention to the moments, but whatever it is I’m glad I was there at that moment.

Have a wonderful day full of light.

Nurturing Thursday: Inner child

“Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it.

Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it. “

Thaddeus Golas

I’m trying to love myself, to love the little girl I’ve hurt so much, she is inside me, hiding, scared to come out to this world and show herself. I can see her eyes and hair, I can see how beautiful and innocent she is, but I don’t forgive myself for letting people do what they did with her; all those words, all looks and laugh, the comments and the criticism.

I’m writing about her, I’m writing about me, I’m writing about us. We are two different persons I’m trying to put together, to make my true-self.

Love,

E.

Light

We are half way to spring and soon Earth will start to get ready for a party of green and flowers. Can’t wait for it! But for now I’m making my home beautiful with grocery store flowers and looking for light everywhere, because light is always close by, depend on us to find it.

Have a wonderful day!

Mindfulness

“Mindfulness something we simply do. It is not a theory, or a thought, or a concept.

Defined in a few words, mindfulness is paying attention, without judgement and with acceptance, to where we are, how we are, what we are feeling, what we thinking – in the present moment.” Claire Thompson

I’ve practising yoga and mindfulness for few years now. These 2 practices have helped me to discover an universe inside me. They helped to understand that I’m here, I’m solid, I’m part of this world, I need a space for myself and I don’t need to give up my way and say sorry.

There is always someone ready to still our patience, our peace, our freedom, our…. (you can name many things here), if we don’t stand tall and strong we lose ourselves and our beliefs. We don’t need to hurt anyone feelings, but we need to make clear that our feelings matter as well.

Have a great day!

Graceful

snapseed

Last weekend was a little warm, still freezing temperatures, but I went for a long walk and I saw this sculpture on my way: a graceful naked lady. I didn’t read the plaque to know the meaning of this sculpture for the park, I was freezing!  Next time I go that way I should take a blanket with me to keep her warm..  🙂

Nurturing Thursday: winter blues

Simplicity is not about deprivation, but about creating a space for living – Unknown

Depression rate is at its peak this week. I can feel it in my bones. Only a tiny line divides the health and the depressed mind, not easy to keep the balance. Take care! I’m focusing on simplicity, paying attention to the beauty around me and being grateful, to keep my balance.

Be safe and have a great day!

Monday Musings: Rio abajo Rio

“Always behind the actions of writing, painting, thinking, healing, doing, cooking, talking, smiling, making, is the river, the Rio Abajo Rio; the river nourishes everything we make” – Women who run with the wolves

You know that this book is my favourite book of all times. I always go back to it when I need an inspiration or guidance. Recently I haven’t been sure about my creative process, I want to do many things, but I feel the urge to focus on one point only, to strength it up. I know I’ll have to let go of other stuff and  I’m not sure if it will be the best right now.

After reading few pages of this book, I realized I needed fresh air, I needed to be in contact with nature. The weather was nice yesterday, still cold, but some of the snow has melted, and I could reach the river easly. I went without cloves, I needed to feel the cold in my bones, to feel my body, feel that I’m here, I’m strong, no wind will blow me away. It was a great feeling, I love it. My hands were literally frozen when I got back home, I had to warm them up before doing anything else, but it was worth  :)!

Have a lovely week!

Blissful

“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life. “ Jill Bolte Taylor

I’ve been busy, many things to do, juggling here and there. I know that I need to stop, breathe and listen (my little mantra) from time to time.

A hot cup of coffee in my hands and watching the sunrise is blissful moment early morning. It’s short, maybe 5 to 10 min but enough for me to focus on my body and my needs for that moment before the hurry and craziness of the day start.
