Some of the most precious moments of my life lately I have spent alone. Took me a very long time to get there. I always had found a way to be surrounded by people. .

My trip in Hawaii in November was the first truly alone and at peace. There was no grasping for distractions - I just was there, swimming, walking, driving around, eating, writing, sleeping, wandering. .

Being able to be with myself also meant being with the elements completely. Warm waters and earth and rain and wind and let them work their magic on me.
.
It created something beautiful inside me, like a soul tattoo that I can go back to anytime I need to access a certain sense of peace. Like right now  in the middle of a busy airport. .
This photo brings me back there instantly. I took it in the early morning - this is a sunrise. (how amazing!)(And it s not me and Lulu in the photo!)
.

It also reminds me of the emotional power of images. Sometimes today we tend to forget why we take photos - with the  likes  system, they ve become such a commodity.
.
But photos at their core are the witness of a moment, gone forever and yet perfectly alive inside of us - whether we were the ones living that moment or not.

I love soft, comfortable, cosy, warm, light, easy, non noisy (?)( )(yup!) clothes. Like, more and more and more.

The other day I was wearing boots with heels and walking around I could hear the clop, clop of the heels on the floor. It drove me crazy! I want to walk silently and easily and bouncily like a cat.

Is it just me? Is it a trend? Are the sneakers getting us all? Is it athleisureception? What s going on in the world? What s going on in the world of first world problems?     #nobutreally

These last years have been bumpy to say the least. I ve opened up about it. What s funny is that when I look back, I started these years in this mirage of the fashion girl, living the  high life  (dumb expression). Truth is, after a few years of exploring that world, I became miserable and I felt very far from myself.

Except I had no idea of who I was. 
So I tried to stay the person I knew. Even if I was agonizing. 
That s when life starting getting hard, and harder, brutalizing me into letting go of that old self I was so attached to. 
In 2018, it came crumbling down - until finally, a flower started growing again on the ashes.

When I see this photo, shot by my sister, who was there every moment even when she didn t get what the fuck I was doing, when I see myself with no make up, wearing whatever clothes... When I see myself feeling so at home in nature - me who ended up being so crushed by the buildings of NYC... When I see this photo of me, here in Corsica where I grew up learning to chat (like literally have conversations) with nature... When I see it I can hear my sister saying  sit here - I have to take a photo, look at this, it s the Tree of Life  and i thought of the medal engraved of a Tree of Life I am wearing that I bought in a church store when I was so sad I sat and prayed... When I see it I remember when, a few months ago, I made the promise to myself to live in my truth whatever the consequences. 
And life started flowing again.

When I see it, I wouldn t change anything. I want to thank 2018 (17, 16) for the lessons.

And thank the woman I was, who did nothing but her best - and is still here inside (and still wants to steal my sister s Balenciaga sneakers). In this moment, to me, nature, quiet and conversing with the trees is essential.

Might be completely different to you. 
Allow yourself to love what you love, grow, fuck up, and to change, even if the world around you resists it. People will always judge. Change is hard, but it is wonderful - ask the butterflies!

And have a wonderful last few hours of 2018 - in France we don t say HNY before it s the New Year so I ll be back for that  

Ok love you I talk to much bye

2018 has been quite an interesting year - very rocky but with amazing highlights and insight. .
One of these was our retreat in the Atacama Desert. Honestly, it was quite a jump into the unknown for us to offer a retreat in a place so remote with such  spiritual  teachings. 
I remember the fears on my way there. Yet I knew that not only our teachers where amazing but that our community is special and truly open. I trusted us. .
It ended up being one of the most stellar and special time of my life. .
So as I reflect on this incredible, formative year, It reminds me to keep making fear my friend, to take that leap, go further, leave what doesn t feel authentic anymore, and reach towards what feels true.
.
What did 2018 teach you?

PS this is salt I am walking on!!!   -

Full moon tonight  
.
So happy to be home, in Corsica - there is something so calm and pure in the air here, and an incredible silence (the only thing you can hear in the video is the sea) I feel really, truly lucky to have grown up here. .

I ll try to share as much Corsican things as I can in my stories - tomorrow we re going to visit family in L Ile Rousse! Should be a pretty ride    
.
PS I do not take the moon lightly   but I imagine you have read about the solstice and the incredibly powerful full moon we are experiencing right now. Only thing I can say is I try to take a look at the moon every night, where ever I am. I feel like it keeps me connected...

I ve have tried to meditate for years - I knew it would be amazing but then, you know, life.
.

Our retreat in the Atacama Desert was about self discovery and to me, an essential part of knowing yourself is learning how to be centered and, as @gwynethpaltrow talked about in our podcast, aligned   
.
I LOVED the teachings of @susan.piver because of their simplicity and  actionability  - since I came back, I kept my practice. And though I am still  terrible at meditating  (there is no such thing as that) I can already feel the incredible impact it s having on my life...
.
PS this is me in the Moon Valley, and these are the Andes behind in the back (can you believe this? The mythical Andes!!!) I am totally NOT meditating and I am posing for the photo and giggling. Also yes I look like some character from Star Wars. .

Do you meditate? What s your style?
More photos of this amazing, amazing Moon Valley, in stories. 
Oh and link to my podcast with @gwynethpaltrow in bio.

This is how happy I was in Chile on our yearly retreat.

I am writing about it now, the landscapes, the connection, the peace, the stars, the meditation... Hopefully I find the words to describe. Come next time!

Thank you to our teachers @susan.piver and Tashi Dos Santos. Thank you to our wonderful guests.
