Tt’s been 18 years last weekend since my first date with my life companion ?
to celebrate this impressive number we spend a long weekend in nature, camping, enjoying the Sun, picturesque mountains, cold rivers… which is what we both love…
I feel privileged to have this long relationship experience, I feel lucky to see us change so much over these years and at the same time being the same us, to see our relationship going through thick and thin, troubles and joys and each single experience making the relationship only richer and stronger,
it made me also think how very often we take things for granted and only on occasions like this we stop and appreciate things we have and experience,
I practise yoga to be grateful for and appreciate every moment of my life, every relationship with other people… yes, even the difficult one ?
because every experience, every relation with the family or friends is a lesson, it’s meant to teach us something…
pay attention when you’re with other people,
really be with them,
enjoy their happiness,
accept their decisions, even if you don’t agree with them,
see that nobody is trying to hurt you, everyone is trying to find their own way to be happy and it’s just that some people may not know how to find peace within themselves,
and enjoy every moment of being together
