Something in the air

Something in the air

There is something in the air tonight.

Something that smells fresh, something that tastes good. The beginning of something that feels like self-acceptance, even self-love I would dare to say. Comme une envie de prendre soin de moi, avec douceur. Ahimsa. A-himsa. A: without, the absence of. Himsa: Injury, harm, violence. Be gentle.


Brushing my teeth, and taking my time doing so. Plucking my eyebrows, and making it a beautiful gesture. Taking care of myself through simple actions, transforming the daily hustle into a meaningful ritual, a loving routine.

Eating a late-night snack, and wanting it to be tasteful. Choosing a pair of jeans, and wanting it to look good. No, not good. Great, fabulous. That desire to feel fantastic, just because. That wish to embody the moment, embrace the now. Fully, completely me.

There is something in the air tonight.

After all that time, I’m becoming kind. Kind of starting to care about enjoying my time on earth, kind of realizing that I’m getting old, and that the day I am wasting now wondering about being enough is a day passing by without much fun.

After all that time, I am finally starting to get it. Get that I am imperfect, but that what matters is not the final destination, but the path, and that even when mine is full of obstacles, I do my very best to keep my soul uplifted, and my heart soft, and that it’s the only thing that truly matters. I may be full of flaws, but my heart is filled with good intentions.

There is something in the air tonight.

And it starts with something very simple: to learn to be comfortable with one self, in silence and in noise, in stillness as in movement, whether surrounded by people or alone. To be comfortable with one self’s past, present and possible futures. To be comfortable with me right here, right now, so that I can fully be with you.
