You know I’m just a breeze Skipping over the sea

Paula Fuga is just gorgeous. Unfortunately I can’t insert any youtube videos on this post, but it would be a pity to have missed this heartwarming video.

Paula Fuga – Misery’s end

Just something i most do
For future
Always knew that it would be
Just so
I’d be counting the days
And i won’t get use to away
Before I sail away
I want you to know
Why I must go
I promise to come home someday
And all these loving memories
I promise to keep with me
Misery’s end is on your lips
But please don’t say don’t go away from me
You know I’m just a breeze
Coming into the trees
Before I sail away
I want you to know
That when I go
I try my best to phone daily
Remember no news is good news
And the good news is, “I love you”
Before I sail away
I want you to know
That when I go
I come back home to you safely
And when I return
I hope you pick me up in baggage claim C
You know I’m just a breeze
Skipping over the sea

Be yourself, be authentic

Words of wisdom by this wonderful lady Brene Brown. She couldn’t find a definition for authenticity, so she just made one up

au·then·tic·i·ty /ˌôTHenˈtisədē/

Authenticity is a choice and needs practise.

Authenticity is the daily practise of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we actually are.

Choosing authenticity means cultivating the courage to be imperfect, to set boundaries and to allow ourselves to be vulnerable, expressing compassion that comes from knowing that we’re all made of strength and struggle and nurturing the connection and sense of belonging that can only happen when we believe we’re enough.

Authenticity demands whole-hearted living and loving even when it’s hard.

Even when we’re wrestling with the shame and fear of not being good enough and especially when the joy is so intense that we’re afraid to let ourselves feel it.

Mindfully practising authenticity during our soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.

This was an extract out of an audiobook that I highly recommend to anyone, called “The power of vulnerability”, Brene Brown

It’s one of the best and funniest audiobooks I’ve listened to!

Imagine life’s a video game

An advice of a father how to manage struggle in school

Think of school like a video game. Every time you fight a battle you gain XP (that’s experience, for the non-gamers) . So even if you loose, you still move forward. How you choose to react determines the impact that it has on you. And remember, it can’t get any worse.

The challenges you are facing this year will help you in the future, because you are learning to be resilient.
