Take care is the process of protecting someone or something and providing what that person or thing needs(*).
I believe we are all aware about the risk of taking care too much: when we put too much energy and attention in someone or something and we end up neglecting our own needs. Then we experienced tiredness, exhaustion, demotivation, dissatisfaction, bitterness…
But what are the signs of taking too little care of what is around us?
This month, I wish to share with you a life experience instead of a written article and present you my trip in the rainforest of Ecuador.
Reserve your place on FRIDAY the 27th of APRIL FROM 19H!
After my last article, many people asked me: “what did you mean when you wrote that the rain forest is not only the lung of the planet but also one of its hearts?”. I meant that the experience of stepping out of my comfort zone, of admiring the beauty and the strength of the Nature, of being inspired by another culture had an intense impact on my ability to feel connected with what is around me.
It allowed me to experience more Love. Love of being alive and Love for life.
As some of you already know, after Christmas I traveled to Ecuador.
During the first week, my partner and I discovered the volcano’s road, we hiked up the Chimborazo and the Cotopaxi and visited some cities.
Then, we joined a group and we flied inside the rain forest where we spent almost 2 weeks immersed in the green!
Our aim was to get more in contact with the lung of our planet, its inhabitants and its energy so to better perceive the importance of its protection.
Christmas is approaching…. Again 🙂
Even if you may not feel connected with this celebration, it is quite difficult to ignore it. So why not to use this period of the year to train our ability of paying attention?
The holiday’s period corresponds to a special moment in this part of the world: the 21st of December is the shortest day of the year, the winter Solstice. After that, days are getting longer. It says: winter reaches its maximum pick. A new period, a new year is on the point to start!
One way to prepare, before focusing on the New Year’s Resolutions and how to keep them 😉 , is to acknowledge what you accomplished this year.
In the previous article, we talked about the importance of being honest and about a tool: the honesty journal 🙂
But how does it work, exactly, an honesty journal? Is it about saying always what we feel or what we think truthfully? Do we need to “impose” it to our friends, family and colleagues, despite social conventions and despite the risk of hurting other people’s feelings?
No! Let’s focus on the person who is the closest to us: ourselves!
