Labels (More notes to self)

Have you ever asked yourself why things are “showing up” in your life the way they are right now?

We are used to “attach labels” to everything around us, people, circumstances and all kind of events.

We like to use “positive” or “negative”, “good” or “bad” and so on and so forth.

I thought that house would be my home for the rest of my life. Continue reading

Open to receive

She was asking for some help to feed her baby, some spare coins in order to buy food and milk for a tiny beautiful baby she was carrying along with a bag full of old clothes, newspapers for these cold nights, an old broken umbrella and others things I couldn’t see very well, she carried many other plastic bags in her hands so it was very difficult for her to move around with baby and bags everywhere.

You could say she was recently living in the street, she didn’t look like the typical homeless person since her clothes were still in a certain good shape, she was very young and looked very frightened.   Probably was a typical case of teenage pregnancy where they decide to run away from home or even their parents kick them out.  I don’t know I am just speculating.
