Het mooiste gedicht dat ik ooit over ademhaling gelezen heb... 

Poem - the art of breathing ️
my brain and
heart divorced

a decade ago

over who was
to blame about
how big of a mess
I have become

they couldn't be
in the same room
with each other

now my head and heart 
share custody of me

I stay with my brain
during the week

and my heart
gets me on weekends

they never speak to one another
- instead, they give me
the same note to pass
to each other every week

and their notes they
send to one another always
says the same thing:
"This is all your fault"

on Sundays
my heart complains
about how my
head has let me down
in the past

and on Wednesday
my head lists all
of the times my
heart has screwed
things up for me
in the future

they blame each
other for the
state of my life

there's been a lot
of yelling - and crying


lately, I've been
spending a lot of
time with my gut

who serves as my
unofficial therapist

most nights, I sneak out of the
window in my ribcage

and slide down my spine
and collapse on my
gut's plush leather chair
that's always open for me

~ and I just sit sit sit sit
until the sun comes up

last evening,
my gut asked me
if I was having a hard
time being caught
between my heart
and my head

I nodded

I said I didn't know
if I could live with
either of them anymore

"my heart is always sad about
something that happened yesterday
while my head is always worried
about something that may happen tomorrow,"
I lamented

my gut squeezed my hand

"I just can't live with
my mistakes of the past
or my anxiety about the future,"
I sighed

my gut smiled and said:

"in that case,
you should
go stay with your
lungs for a while,"

I was confused
- the look on my face gave it away

"if you are exhausted about
your heart's obsession with
the fixed past and your mind's focus
on the uncertain future

your lungs are the perfect place for you

there is no yesterday in your lungs
there is no tomorrow there either

there is only now
there is only inhale
there is only exhale
there is only this moment

there is only breath

and in that breath
you can rest while your
heart and head work 
their relationship out."

this morning,
while my brain
was busy reading
tea leaves

and while my
heart was staring
at old photographs

I packed a little
bag and walked
to the door of
my lungs

before I could even knock
she opened the door
with a smile and as
a gust of air embraced me
she said

"what took you so long?"

~Cred; John Roedel

Vanmorgen leuke feedback ontvangen van de stad Mechelen na afloop van een traject Engels aan projectcoördinatoren.

" Wij hebben er enorm veel aan gehad, kwam tegemoet aan de verwachtingen (theorie en oefenen in de praktijk), de leerkracht was erg goed, en speelde mooi in op onze vragen/noden, lessen waren steeds goed voorbereid en to the point. Ik ben blij dat ik dat dit traject heb gevolgd, al was het soms wat goochelen met de agenda ".

Elke Foubert - Vormingsconsulente Stad Mechelen

Wat een leuke attentie van SyntraWest

Succes! Zet hem op! Geen stress! Het komt goed! Het gaat je lukken!

BLCC zegt het volgende:

10 juni 2021

"De opleiding Engels is enthousiast gegeven door coach Fabienne met afwisseling van diverse topics: work-lifebalance, hobby's wensen, slaap, kledij, Linkedin, dragon's den, (glim)lachen, small talk, coronanieuws, krantenkoppen, idioms en nog véél meer. Fabienne gebruikte filmpjes, luister- en invuloefeningen en rollenspellen om grammar, vocabulary en the tenses op een luchtige manier op te frissen. Ook de multiculturele achtergrond van onze groep werd positief ingezet tijdens de lessen.
De online opleiding Engels is een echte aanrader. 
Dank je wel Fabienne & BLCC!"
