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

Among us Women-Entre Nous Femmes

The History

Entre Nous Femmes Housing Society was founded in 1984 by three women who wanted to make life better for themselves and for other single mothers and their children.

The founders believed that providing safe and affordable housing was the first step in creating positive futures for families. ENF is one of the first housing development organizations created and led by women in Canada and has a proud tradition of naming our buildings after the grandmothers of our founders.

We continue to honor our legacy of inclusiveness, hope, determination, and social justice as passed down from the grandmothers through the creation of affordable, diverse and healthy communities for families, single parents and seniors in the lower mainland.

26 years I’ve lived here. I raised two daughters and raise my granddaughter here. This is me, this is where I live, and here is where my memories and the history of my family lives. My soul is rooted here. How can you take that away from me? How do I tell my kids and my grandkids that I will be moving and I don’t know where I’m going and I have to move all the archives of my life from the walls, the pencil marks of their growth chart, the life I built here in and all its treasures secured in all the nooks and crannies of my home with precious family memoirs firmly attached to the spirit of my beautiful home. Even the tree growing outside my balcony is a part of me and the heritage of this building. In addition, the love for my neighbours, always there for me, I’m always there for them. We take care of each other, we help each other and we want to grow old with each other. This community within Alma Blackwell is one of a kind and it resonates such beautiful energy where we are all doing our very best to live and raise our children and better ourselves for a brighter future. Here is where I live. We live here!

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.

My Vision For You

It took me longer than expected to find the words to reflect the value of my work. I wanted it to be as authentic as possible with images and phrases snipped out of magazine that resonates my desires and passion for you to reach a place of awakening.

At one point I overwhelmed myself with snips and I chuckled over my enthusiastic intent to say and deliver the many empowering messages. I did discover however that there was more that met my eye as I searched for those  messages because the activity itself guided me to a realm that impacted me profoundly. I became fixated on an energy that lifted me like a wave and came to a definite conclusion that my life’s work has just begun.

There is more for me to do and offer and grow from and I just can’t wait to discover it all. I am grateful to the stars for guiding me to a place of anticipation and excitement.

I wish the same for you.

Vision Board in the making

img_3054-1

Here I go, getting ready for another Vision Board Workshop

While I gather my supplies together at my kitchen table, I decided to update my own vision board. Yes, I will make one for myself to share with you, one that is more meaningful to me at this point of my life. A refresher!

My Vision……

First I list my values:  what is important to me, what moves me, inspires me? What am I passionate about?  What and who do I love and care about?

I value the strength of my family, the honor of witnessing the growth of a soul in my children, my loyal friends and my long lasting neighbours. I value my work and community; building capacity with families and newcomers.  I value our environment and securing it for a better future. I value you, my readers and hoping my words and insights can help and guide you in some way to a better, hopeful and stronger tomorrow.

I am passionate about empowering women from ages 1 to 100 and I care, truly care about peoples feelings and providing a glimmer of inner strength and power that awaits to be recognized and take hold of. My vision and dreams is to facilitate to the community, empowering vision workshops. This dream fulfills me and drives me to work harder.

But first, I got to get busy-lets see what happens.

Stay tuned!
