What should I say?!
I’ve been away for awhile. Life has been presenting me with a whole lot of possibilities.
I’ve been learning a new painting technique with this very happy, intriguing, blooming group.
I spend most of my time between my family and my studio, life seems to go well like that.
I knew there was just a little something missing…I needed to exercise but no stamina to start.
I read my friend Tracy’s blog and she mentioned having a yoga teacher coming to her house, once a week for training session.
I immediately thought It would do wonders for me, since getting out of my house was the big deal!
So, two weeks ago I started my yoga practices. Soft music, meditation, quiet mind and one hour of learning to balance my body. mind and spirit.
I am not a believer of coincidences, I think life unfolds its magic in front of you when you start following your path with love.
I could hear my body screaming for a diet that focused on my body type and I preferred following the Ayurveda Medicine for a change.
I knew my basic dosha type was Vatta-Pitta (Kappa mind wise), so started selecting the food I ate based on that.
I am still struggling with a crave of sugar, but on the other hand, I discovered it is very good for my dosha. So, in moderation, why not?!
Together with my little changes, came my daily meditation practices, which make my day flow with a lot of beauty.
My paintings have been tuning to a quiet place, serene but still colorful.
My daily life has been filled with purpose, mindful choices and balance.
It feels good, very good…
In my quiet space, I wonder which steps to follow, listen to my heart and wish quietly in the Universe ears…

It seems like everybody else is.
I filled a test online to find out my Enneagram personality. An excellent source for self-discovery.
I had done the test 20 years ago and totally forgot my type. So I bought the online survey, only 10 dollars. There are a few for free but not so accurate.
I have a strong Helper personality! Sometimes good, sometimes gets me into trouble.
The description is so amazing that made me go back in life and understand a few incidents.
Possessive! My husband is going to like to hear that! See Mr. Sugar, it is not my fault, just my kind personality!
What I really liked was the image they chose for the Helper!
Isn’t she lovely?!
I can see myself on my kitchen apron baking some goodies!
Have a great weekend you all, I have to sip my coffee over 15 pages of self-discovery!
It has been an intense month.
Life changes so fast that sometimes, we just don’t see the beauty passing by you.
Slowing down is a good thing and I usually reserve it for when the leaves or snow are falling.
Now, it is time to evaluate all what we got in our pockets.
All the ideas, dreams and inspiration. I am trying to figure a few things out and pondering the best path to choose.
I know inside me this path has been chosen a long time ago, but life keeps bringing up challenges that makes my decision a little bit foggier.
I love my cottage, there is my little space to think, reevaluate and just be!
I need to have my feet on the ground, not worry about clocks, float on the lake and watch my family having a good time!
So, blogging will be coming from both end from now one…
Can’t wait to start showing you what I’ve been “cooking” in my studio!
