Believe you can

Believe you can so that you can do anything. Scared? Yes, we are scared. Tired? We feel tired but we don't allow it. We haven't worked as much as we know we actually can. Alone? Never, we were lucky enough to meet incredible people. Is this story similar with yours?

Believe you can because once you make that first step, anything is possible. Afraid of success? Of course we are. Success comes with a great deal of responsibility and hard work. Are we ready? Well, this is something we want to prove ourselves. Yet success to us means working hard, reaching our objectives. We don't believe in overnight success. Because anything worth having doesn't come easy, it's the natural way of things.

How will we do it? You have happiness and doing what you love. And then you have happiness coming from doing what you love. Someone once wrote that you're supposed to love what you do until what you do becomes what you love. We were lucky enough to discover what makes us happy.

We were happy to learn that taking new steps, trying new things, learning new techniques for the first time make you a stronger person with more courage. You are put out of your comfort zone. And that's always scary. Who wants to be placed in the middle of the unknown?

But once you are there you are happy and equally suprised to see that you can handle it. Well, what do you know, you are capable of doing that! Amaze yourself first and make yourself proud. Believe you can.

Sélection Monday

We've got some picks from one of the favourite stores. So if you need some ideas for a present or you just want to make a present to yourself (oh my, that works so well, you'll always be pleased), we've got these ideas for you from COS:

For her/for you:

For him/for you:


More than a colour, can you be neutral? There's always gonna be someone who won't understand you and there's always gonna be you who won't be understanding others. Neutral is not a colour, it should be a state of mind we achieve or self-educate. We do neither. We struggle. We lose ourselves in the morning but we find ourselves at the end of the day, as a very good friend recently wrote on his personal blog.

Is there a way out? Sure there is. Go your own path. Trust yourself. Trust your gut. No matter how lost you might feel, follow those who help you grow without judging you. Remember that here we grow together. It is a state of mind what we are trying to achieve. Proving ourselves and never to the others that we can do great things. More than we once thought. Growing stronger. Wiser. Learning that patience is a virtue and no longer underestimating the value of time.

Neutral is a way of living. When you live and let live. When you keep walking knowing that who wants to follow will follow. Be neutral. Because it's more than just a shade.

That DAY will come

'Détache-toi.' I told myself this morning. 'Détache-toi et laisse passer'. A piece of advice
 that crossed my mind just as a soothing hand sometimes crosses over your forehead. 
Play that music. Drink that coffee. Embrace that morning. That day will come. If you feel
 this morning is not perfect, do remember that nothing perfect is that great and that 
perfection is nothing but a placebo. 

We grow together. We grow patience, we grow love, we grow understanding.
 The advice is for those who need it not for those who don't want it. So détache-toi 
because that day will come. That day when your day will become true. And be less
 harsh with yourself. We all make decisions we don't like sometimes. Because life
 is not perfect, because we need constant improvement, because otherwise nothing
 would ever change. 

So relax. You'll get there. That day will come. Détache-toi.
