"The divorce definitely put a strain on my relationships with my daughters. One day after the divorce was final, my oldest daughter called out of the blue and wanted to get together for lunch. It had been a while since we had a truly substantive conversation. We used to talk to each other all the time. We ended up meeting for lunch that same day, and during the course of our lunch, I said, "it's going to sound like your father is coming out of the closet, but I feel like I'm living in my own skin." That's what yoga has done for me. I'm doing things for me, but I'm also more cognizant of the world around me and realizing that I need to be doing a lot more for others." New @theselfstories interview with Brian Dillon. Link in bio -
Insomnie re bonjour apres quelques semaines de repit....Apres de long mois de moment tres très (bcq trop) douloureux, d'épuisement physique, psychologique,...nous avons reussi à surmonter tout cela, mais on se rend compte que dans une séparation (surtout celle ci du contexte et des circonstances plus que difficiles : abandon a 700km, enceinte de plus de 8 mois, eleves seule garance, retrouver un job dans l'urgence, finir les travaux de maison....), les souffrances, les douleurs sont toujours presentes, elle se manifestent d'une autre maniere, mais sont tout autant douloureuses, meme bcq plus quand cela touche votre chair, votre sang.....certains diront "elle est trop petite, elle ne comprend pas", d'autres "tkt pas, elle est bien entouré, vous lui donnez tellement d'amour au quotidien... et dans quelques années elle ne se souviendra plus de ces moments difficiles",...peut être...mais malgré son très jeune âge, elle comprend beaucoup de choses et des décisions prises tel que mettre 700km de distance entre elles et leur papa, cela à des conséquences plus que négative sur elle et de voir sa fille ainsi est très très douloureux !!!
J'aimerais tellement que les choses se passent différemment, que l'on soit pour vous des parents divorcés "normaux", mes amours, que l'on vous préserve de tout cela, et que la situation s'apaise.
Ma chatoune, periode plus que compliqué pour toi, sache ma chatoune que CHAQUES décision que j'ai prises, que je prends et que je prendrais seront réfléchi et decidé en fonction de vous et de votre bien être, Rien ni personne ne passera avant vous, vous êtes mon UNIQUE priorité !
Meme si rien ne remplace lamour et la présence d'une autre personne , je suis la mon amour, JAMAIS je ne vous abandonnerait, je vous ai fait une promesse et jusqu'à mon dernier souffle je la tiendrai.
JE VOUS AIME plus que TOUT !!!! My loves.

It may not be easy but it is possible. 🙏We don’t have to allow her circumstances, our pain, or other people’s thoughts of us take us down!
Return to the #truth inside of you and connecting with that divine light.🌟
You can get thru life’s challenges. 💪Surround yourself with #support, practice #selfcare, get outside if you can. Find what you need to #riseabove 🦋
10 P's for Partners. This is written down by my Grandma T. Something I've treasured, as she loved Pawpaw so. She lived these words out. I did try, Grandma, he wouldn't let me. I really did. I had to let him go. I couldn't do anything on the list, but the last one... I can pray he makes peace with God. Grateful for the wisdom of good people in my life. #grandma#heaven#divorce#prayer#wisdom
I conquered a fear today!!! Two actually!
Nothing quite like walking a tightrope across Niagara buuuut I’m still so proud of myself!
I started working on my website ALL ON MY OWN, which I had been putting off for months because I always worried it wouldn’t be good enough but DONE IS BETTER THAN PERFECT! I can fix it up later and make it even better but this was something I wanted to accomplish on my own and I’m freaking doing it!
I also taught yoga in SPANISH for the first time! I was so nervous even though I’m equally confident in English and Spanish, but I’d never done this in Spanish and doubted my ability to find the right words for it. I’ve only ever been taught, studied, practiced, and taught in English (with a little Sanskrit) so I got real panicky before I started and almost cancelled 😬 so glad I didn’t though! I pushed through and was able to pull of a great class!!! If you wait until you’re ready to do it perfectly, YOU WILL NEVER DO IT!!! So whatever it is you’ve been holding back from, telling yourself you’re not ready, wanting to back out of, THIS IS YOUR SIGN. JUST GO FOR IT! Who cares if you mess up a little, you’ll learn and improve ❤️ DONE IS BETTER THAN PERFECT.
JUST DOOO IT.
And lastly: CELEBRATE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS!!! 😍
Camels are symbols of endurance, strength, and persistence, as a matter of fact. All of these are qualities that I work on daily.
I believe that there is beauty all around me. Despite whatever hardships we have encountered, there is so much love, so much goodness, and so many dreams to dream. That is empowering. It gives me the desire and strength to persevere.
And still I persist.
@analoguekate, thank you so much for the camel sticker from Dubai. 🧡
Peanut and Daddy!💜💜💜
Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

🦋The burden of judgment is heavy.
We all do it. We all judge. We judge people we love, and we judge ourselves.
I have been in the habit of judging myself. And I have recently realized how much I had obsessed about trying ‘to get my life together’ after my divorce. I was desperate to start living again. I wanted the pain to end quickly. It didn’t.
Because there is no magic cure for pain✨
18 months after my divorce, I told a close friend of mine, that I was still crying myself to sleep. And that I am sure this is it, I am almost done crying. She replied: “you are not done crying yet.”
She was right.
I was so overly determined to prove that I am able to pull through it. I am a super mum. I am a warrior. I will make a success of myself as a divorced single mum. Watch me👊🏽
I did pull through it. But I forgot to have compassion for myself along the way. I was rushing myself through the healing process. I wasn’t allowing my self to just BE.
Ladies, let’s remember to have compassion for ourselves. Let's decide not to judging ourselves. Let's remember that we can't rush our healing ❤️You are even more powerful than you’ve ever thought. And one day soon, you will wake up with no tears on your pillow🌹
You? Are you kind to yourself?😘
Sharing is caring 🙏🏽
