Twenty Twenty Two, Here I Am!

2022, I plan to continue living a resilient life, acting on acts of kindness and a daily gentle reminder of all the reasons to be grateful. I will be aware of my presence, follow my heart and listen to what my heart desires with healthy boundaries. I will do my best to be my best and continue to make room in my day to day consciousness to do better in all aspects.

If I can accomplish the slightest in all those areas then I’m doing okay. Oh yes, and to remember to be gentle to myself and if I stray away from my goals, my vision for myself? … well…I will get back on track and persue the plan to manifest the day to day purposeful life as best I can.

I will remember, my very existence is the precious deal! Fortune to be given the ticket to walk this earth! I will continue to make the best of it! I value change and the opportunity to make change and know it’s inevitable and that’s okay because Twenty Twenty Two, here I am!

Eva you got this!

With love

Saying goodbye is hard to do

The family together having our last precious moments with mom… Our beautiful, soulful, unconditional loving compassionate mother, grandmother & great grandmother and friend! Taking turns saying our goodbyes, each having their very own special relationship with mom, having to say goodbye and thanking her for everything she has done for us. She made us all so strong! She built an army of resilient loved ones!

We honour you mom for your incredible perseverance to live despite all the challenges and barriers; you pushed them all aside and climbed over those walls to continue your journey on the earth without a second thought. You never gave up, your spirit is strong and mighty! You are my superwomen!

Mom, we are all here for you, don’t worry about anything, don’t worry mom, everything will be okay, we are okay.

I pray to all your angel protectors to be by your side to guide you…in peace🙏

I love you forever mom, I love you for always, as long as I’m living my soul mother you’ll be.

Love, your daughter eva

Step out the comfort zone and watch the magic happen and learn!

Mom just wondered “what mistakes didn’t I make? After all we all learn from our mistakes. We certainly learn from the ones we did make …well what about the ones we didn’t make…? So we just don’t know what we don’t know! Maybe just maybe there was more to know in this lifetime, what have I missed out on?

My Mom, fighting life with Multiple Myeloma and yet continuous to contemplate profound questions. Gives us all something to think about.

Secrets

It’s taken me two years to post this. I kept it in draft all this time ignoring it. I now feel it’s a safe space among us bloggers and readers to post. There is nothing to hide.

I was standing at a bus stop holding my face up to the sun thinking about current relations in my life when suddenly I realized just how many events and experiences in my life have been kept a secret! How many relationships held a secret in one way or another. I was standing there just floored by the sudden thought… the pattern just never occurred to me.

Especially men, my fathers violence towards my mother, my suppressed marriage, my first new relationship after ending a 16 year marriage, and finally my new found love and discovering his addiction to alcohol that regrettably took his life 15 years ago.

Secrets kept are not healthy, when secrets are held within they will begin to simmer, then boil and gradually overflow or explode and thats when it becomes dangerous. There is resentment, grudges and hateful feelings not only to the significant other you are keeping the secret about but to your precious self as well. There will be damage. It’s destructive. You can’t stay boxed in holding on to the secret, because to suppress your feelings and not let your feelings be told only turns negative itself and creates a weakness. One way or another you will be affected. The positive side to this cause and effect is if you catch it in time you can rebel and reveal the truth, reconcile in time before there is too much damage done. You can break away from the solitude, it won’t be easy, their will be challenges but in the long run you will be set free!

Set yourself free!

I’m unlocking one more secret….after all secrets of love is not meant to be hidden only celebrated. I have to make a choice. I’m beginning to feel the freedom.

I am strong, I can do this.

I’m here.

love eva

You are in my heart mind and soul, you have not gone unforgotten, I carry your memory with me everyday, I think of you always, you were courageous, a soldier, a hero and a messenger to all of us connected to you. I remember you, I remember All of you.

It’s a good memory.

I will continue the fight, for your endeavours live within me and I will do my best to make the world a better place.

Thank you for being in my life. Thank you All for being my friend,

You are not forgotten. Not ever. Not one of you.

I Who Did Not Die

img_1799  An inspiring book based on two soldiers of the Iran Iraq War written by Meredith May.
Najah an Iraqi soldier left for dead was saved by Zahed a young Iranian medic soldier on the battle field. Both imprisoned as POW, both were claimed dead by their families, both held on to their dreams to a point of manifestation!
One wonders after all the pain, fear, tears, lost and broken spirit how these two soldiers miraculously stayed alive and freed their way out of hell and into the hands of Canada’s haven.  Twenty five years later, here in this beautiful city of Vancouver, the two soldiers find themselves sitting across from each other in the lobby of a non profit organization VAST (Vancouver Association of Survivors of  Torture).  Now the recollection of the past have been written….the untold story is now unfolded….in fact this story will give you renewed hope in humanity. An example of the power of positive change respectfully.
