This was made for a child’s bedroom where colour, consistency, lightness & fun primes.

My excuses for making myself so rare on WordPress for the “reader” as much as for the posts, I have just been sick with flue twice, painted nearly full time (will keep you updated once they are completed, for the moment I’m filing their progress for you) & have been very hectic in between too.
As soon as things boil down to a “simmering” routine I hope to be able to get back to things as before.

Holidays plan of action :)


Happy holidays! ©copyright2013owpp

Happy holidays!

Someone asked me for suggestions before the holidays ( food wise. ) We all need to condition, to prepare ourselves mentally to the ” in case ” or the ” what if ” scenario.

We have all been there 🙂

I found myself typing frantically, not being able to stop and realized I was actually preparing myself… And as I have been asked to post more oa articles, I thought, why not use this for my blog?

Enjoy!

Plan of action
—————

My best advice for a consistent plan of action is,

1st. To ask our higher power to take away the craziness we have in our heads toward food.

2nd. To do what we love doing besides our job 🙂 this was my saviour.

3rd. To try not to be too dependent on people to fix our problems. I always thought the
answer was always going to come from an outside factor eg. some magical word my sponsor
would say that would pull me out of the hell hole I had created for myself.
The only person capable of doing so, is oneself.

4th. To differentiate between the foods that are mine and those that are not
is a priority. It is what we call recovery.
Once we have that awareness, we are on the right track and miracles happen.

5th. Last but not least, to be aware and have the knowledge that no matter how big is our
moment of weakness, NEVER under no circumstances take that ( stupid, crazy ) bite. It is
NOT worth it!
We are giving strength to something that hasn’t. So, let’s keep it that way. Keep it the way
it is in reality, not what our minds desperately want us to fabricate and believe.

What do they say ? Repetition is the only form of consistency we can achieve.
As we repeat, we train ourselves into new habits. Maybe it’s bringing back old, long buried
good habits, who knows? We were not born thinking crazy!

However. Remember one last thing before holidays starts. Whatever happens, if we ever slip in
the tiniest way, let’s not fall into the trap of blowing the whole situation out of proportion.
I went there, it’s a big down slide and it’s not pretty! We are talking about FOOD not major
catastrophe.
The less we exaggerate the situation, the more likely we are to spring back up and resume our sane
lifestyle.

Have a happy holiday!

St. Moritz 2011 ( French poetry In it’s original text with translation in post below )


Oh! St. Moritz!

Oh! St. Moritz!

St. Moritz
————

Lorsque je me promenais dans tes allées glacée,

Ô St. Moritz!

Le soleil brillait sur les flocons fraichement tombées
Soulignant sa forme pure et intacte
Tout blanc et aveuglant, crissant sous l’impact
De mes pas et je m’exclamais,

Ô St. Moritz!

Les arbres se prosternés, majestueusement
Sous le poids de cette substance cotonneuse
Impassible par la magie de son environnement
Témoin d’un lac allant et gelant
Soumise à la tomber d’une nuit frileuse

Et je priai, Ô St.Moritz!

Durant un mois j’ai habité ta forêt
M’invitant des heures durant à marcher
Mes compagnons furent le silence et l’enchantement
Pour cette plénitude de par le vent
Soufflant, soufflant, à travers ces arbres, à travers ces cimes

Et mon âme murmurait, Ô St. Moritz!

Certains t’ont piétiné, d’autres bafoué
Inconscient du privilège accordé, à cette societé
Blasée, fuyant un trop de tout
Mais retrouvant ces bruits incessants
Ce tumulte, ses lois et ses tabous

Chez toi, Ô St.Moritz!

Moi, je t’ai cajolé, rêvé et bercé
Enfoui au fond de mon coeur à travers ces années
En ésperant marier le tout à la réalité
Pour t’entendre chuchoter dans mes oreilles
Ou gronder en dévoilant tes merveilles

Et j’ai pleuré, Ô St. Moritz.

How do we clear our conditioned minds? 2012

Hi Everyone!

How do we clear our minds of given ideas?We know those ideas don’t suit us, yet we return to them in an automatic reflex.
I wish someone had the answer, meanwhile I settle with the saying ( If I remember it correctly ) ” repetition is the only form of consistency we can achieve “.
What came out of it nevertheless, was an article which I hope you’ll enjoy!

Our conditioned minds
———————–

” We come in for vanity, we continue for sanity, we stay for serenity ” . Another saying which is true, down to its last word. ( For anyone of you who have tried OA )
There’s only one slight problem there, we stay for years on the first sentence, before we realize it’s the last two, which are the glue to program.

They are the reason, people stick to meetings year in, year out, accepting the imperfections that come with the long journey we’ve embarked upon.
Our brains are so conditioned to think vainly, when our abstinence goes haywire, the first thing that comes to our mind is, ” I won’t fit into my jeans tomorrow! ”
But what about our thoughts, feelings, emotions, our view toward life, the world and the positivity that comes along with a serene abstinence, the sun that persistently manifests itself in the darkest of our wintry days?

THAT is actually the reason we stay on, paving our way, ( sometimes on hands and feet ) clearing the stones, which come along a new track. Or even an old one for that matter!
Our minds just need training. It needs getting into the habit of thinking sanely. knowing what truly matters. What is relevant in our lives right NOW. Is it the ” jeans ” or the sparkle, vitality, vigor, verve, zest, pep… So many synonyms yet all of them describe the exact way we feel on abstinence, and that’s the ONLY reason we’re still here.

Our psyche might still be on the old ” program ” by years of indoctrination and automatically goes to conceit but if we stop for a moment and ponder on why we stubbornly linger and try to carve for ourselves a little space in this amazing ” plan of action ” this very efficient ” project for the living ” we’d realize and conclude we’re in it for the ” core “.

For the soul it brings back to us.

Have a very good day!
