Hi, I'm Eve, a Frenchie just returned from China where I was an English teacher. Now looking for a job in my hometown, Lyon in France. Haven't sparked in a while, I fell off the wagon long and hard! But I'm ready to dust myself off and get back on track. When you fall, you get up and start again.
I'm Eve. Turned 40 at the end of 2011. From France, but teaching English in China. Stuyding online to qualify as a teacher of French as a Foreign Language. Busy, but no family, so not THAT busy ;-)
I want to go steady through 2012. 2011 was good but with LOTS of ups and downs. The ups were very high, the lows way too low. I have learnt a lot, but still have a long way to go. A day at a time will do it. Steadily :-)
And let's not forget: I am my OWN super hero, spandex, wand, cape and all :-)
Life's problems wouldn't be called "hurdles" if there wasn't a way to get over them. ~Author Unknown
"There is inside you all of the potential to be whatever you want to be, all of the energy to do whatever you want to do. Imagine yourself as you would like to be, doing what you want to do, and each day, take one step towards your dream. And though at times it may seem too difficult to continue, hold on to your dream. One morning you will awake to find that you are the person you dreamed, of doing what you wanted to do, simply because you had the courage to believe in your potential and to hold on to your dream."
- Donna Levine
If not now, when?
If I am not for myself, who will be?
And, if I am for myself alone, what am I?

I tend to be the "all or nothing" type... but not this time, this is for real, I'm "doing", not "trying"!

Happy Easter ...too hard not to get excited about such a great day.
Wishing you only the greatest of everything. Hope this spring is the time to reach those goals, get closer or to start again.
Watch out because I am back and ready to run, walk, cycle and do whatever it takes to meet my goals. What about you?

Merci Eve, cela me fait toujours plaisir de lire tes commentaires sur mes blogs. Je me trompe ou tu viens sur SP presque exclusivement pour moi ? En tout cas merci !
Passe un très bel été toi aussi... j'espère que tu en profites bien. Mes vacances sont le 14 au soir, pour 2 semaines, je ne peux pas te dire à quel point je suis impatiente d'y être !

Hahaha, non non je t'assure qu'il y a aussi des Hollandais petits ! Ma collègue ici ne fait guère plus d'1m50. Mais c'est vrai que, lorsqu'ils se mettent à être grands, ils ne font pas les choses à moitié !
