WHAT’S YOUR IDEA OF PERFECT HAPPINESS?
I don’t know. I don’t have an idea of perfect. I have an idea of happiness which is those moments when in my mind all is as it should be - nothing to change, nothing to fix.
WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST LIFE FEAR? Playing small. FAVOURITE MEAL? Something involving salad and nuts. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE RELAXATION RITUAL? Meditating HOW DO YOU LIKE SPENDING TIME WITH YOUR KIDS? However they want. DO YOU HAVE A VICE YOU WISH YOU COULD CHANGE? Overvaluing what other people think of me. GUILTY PLEASURE? Dark chocolate… then I also discovered raw chocolate. LAST WORDS TO OUR READERS?
Life happens, and it doesn’t happen against you or for you, it happens and then you make it mean what you choose to make it mean. And if you choose lightly you find that there is wisdom in that moment and an experience that has a potential to turn you into someone you could never have been had life not happened. So if life is happening to you, relax and roll with the waves because on the other side of the story is a human being that you have always wanted to meet and that human being is you. http://reneengamau.com/ Many things. I learned at the time that I was stronger than I thought I was. I learned that it's okay to allow for people to help you. I learned that life is in the now. I learned that a lot of the things that I consider important because they upheld other people's ideas of who I am, including ideas in my own head that I had created about what people think that I should be, are completely irrelevant. I learnt that the “worst” that could or has ever happened in your life is usually a vehicle for the greatest lesson that you will ever learn. You've got to pay attention because the hurricane of the moment can make you miss the lesson. I've learnt that people come to you for a reason or a season. Honour that but then let that soul go because they have to go be with the next person. I've learned that nothing tastes as good as good health. I learned that the diet for the little black dress in December is a good idea, but that living in the body that you want to live in is even greater because we're never going to be able to trade bodies. I can change the place where I live, my car, my clothes but I can't change bodies. I get this one then I have to choose how I'm going to live in it. I learned to love the body I live in and take care of it. I learned that everyone has a self, singular, unique, divine purpose for being here.
