Goodbye Negativity

Goodbye Negativity

Hi, hi!

Did you miss me a lot or even more than that?

It is the beginning of a new week and I am super excited to be starting it by publishing this new article!

I haven’t been able to post anything for over a month, and this is simply because I have been going through a serious period in my life. One, I believe, every [aspiring] writer goes through: The infamous writer’s block.

Let me tell you that it is very much real.

It was not that I didn’t have anything to write about, but I just could not manage to formulate these ideas into words, let alone lengthy and entertaining articles.

Words were just stuck in my head and didn’t want to fall out of it. As much as I have tried writing this whole time, I simply could not.

I also let laziness push through, if I am being completely honest. I was so busy living my life and trying to get things done that I left the blog on the sidelines.

BUT!

I am back now, and with good reason. I have finally found a new topic that will surely make for a nice blog post.

Open Letter To Myself |Again|

Hi, hi, hi!

Happy Monday and happy beginning of the week to everyone!

I know that Mondays are absolutely not the most fun days, for lack of better words, but I hope you’ve all found a way to make of them « Okay days » at the very least.

Today I woke up with a feeling of discouragement, for whatever reason. Lately, I feel like I am too sensitive, a little on the edge with my emotions, and I feel like negative thoughts are getting the best of me.

And to be honest, that’s because it has been pointed out to me. But instead of making me want to stop, think, and work on it, it has made me fall deeper into it. The sentiment that I am wrong for being this emotional, that it has to change, that I have to change, made me close up a little more.

I am not saying that people should walk on eggshells when it comes to telling me what I’m doing wrong or where I’m lacking, even more so when I know that it comes from a place of love. It is just that it’s hard when I already feel like I am not at my best, but that’s just me navigating through my own thoughts.

I had to sit back and think about how I function. There must be something wrong in it.

The only thing I found is that the way I react to things is not necessarily the best at the moment. I can perceive and misunderstand all I want, it’s completely normal. But the way I choose to react to people’s words and actions is what I should focus on.

I cannot control how people deliver their messages or expect them to do it the way I deliver mine, but I can control the way I act towards those. Even though realizing where I lacked made me feel guilty and apologetic towards those who had to endure the worst of it, and also a little bit embarrassed, it also helped me realize what I was doing right.

Sure, I need to work on the way I handle things, but I’m not that much out of the way. I really care a lot, and it makes me give my thousand percent every time for my loved ones. That must be something to appreciate in me.

Lately, I have been mending my past broken relationships, giving space for forgiveness to take over resentment. That is also something I must be proud of.

I have been working on prioritizing family a lot more, and over everything. Not only when I am down and emotionally in need. That is a plus too!

I have managed to put a smile on my loved ones’ faces, to make them proud of my accomplishments. This is something to smile about.

I give my time, my energy, and all of my love, with no selfish thoughts. Good job, Esther!

I am a positive person, and I don’t let life get me down. I give a lot of importance to my mental health, and I make sure to spread a good word every time I can.

And there are many more things I do on a daily basis that make me feel like I’m not a too shabby human being. Haha!

I am not trying to brag, it’s just that I needed the vote of confidence today so that the rest of my week could go without too many bumps.

I am doing something right, and I am still working on myself. It’s all good and it’s normal!

I am trying my best, and that’s good enough.

Wow, this really feels good. I wrote the things I strongly believe I’m doing right, and I feel a lot better.

This one is more for myself but if it helps anyone out there, then I’d be more than glad.

Much love to you all, and have a wonderful, wonderful week!

Tu M’inspires Ce Que J’inspire A Mon Tour

Tu M’inspires Ce Que J’inspire A Mon Tour

Voici la version en ANGLAIS.

Bonjour, bonjour!

Comment allez-vous?

Pour cette nouvelle semaine j’ai décidé de poster mon article en Français ET en Anglais! Dorénavant, j’essaierais de tous les poster en deux versions pour que tout le monde puisse en profiter sans aller toutes les deux minutes sur Google Traduction (Coucou David, Haha).

Pour être honnête avec vous, cet article était prévu pour le 4 Septembre, qui se trouve être la date d’anniversaire de Beyoncé. Pour ceux qui me connaissent ou qui apprennent à me connaitre, si il y a une chose dont tout le monde est au courant c’est bien mon amour et ma loyauté pour THE Queen.

Hello, beautiful people!

I hope everyone is feeling good today, and better than yesterday!

I woke up this morning wanting to write a new article, but to be honest, I am not too inspired lately. I was looking for a nice topic for a new piece and while doing so, I was reminded that today was Michael Jackson’s birthday.

Lettre Ouverte À Moi Même

Lettre Ouverte À Moi Même

 

Bravo,

 

Pour tout ce que tu as accompli, tout ce pourquoi tu t’es battu et qui a abouti

Pour tout ce que tu as réalisé et qui t’as rendu fière

D’être restée tenace face à l’adversité

De t’être battue pour les choses auxquelles tu crois, les choses qui te tenaient à coeur

D’avoir fait confiance, d’avoir ouvert ton coeur, et de ne pas l’avoir laissé s’assombrir par tes peines.
