Words of Love and Wisdom from Fiji

Mar 14, 2011

We’re spending a week in paradise. Really. And it came as such a surprise.

We planned a last minute vacation within the round the world at Jean Michel Cousteau Eco-Resort, a very special place that we found out by luck,  searching on the internet when our NZ plans got cancelled.  I am not going to say too much about it because we’ll feature it in the next issue of  Milk Magazine. But for a prelude, if you ever dream of a vacation by the sea where absolutely everybody in the family will be happy, this is the place. It’s heaven far far away from it all.

And every morning I take a yoga class at sunrise. Torika, the wonderful Fijian yoga teacher finishes each of them with those words:

And I want you to remember…

How special you are

How unique you are

And what a miracle that you are

I’ve promised to myself to put Marcelo and Amalya to sleep every night with those beautiful words from now on.

    I guess we shall have to read it later on then.. The photo in the last post of Marcelo with his arms around his sister.. is priceless. Beautiful! I also love to whisper last sayings to my little taquito every single night. She sighs to sleep with a smile. That is the best non?
    ps. I’m so glad to hear you’ve avoided what has happened. Relieved.
