7 life lessons I got from Irma

Hurricane Irma challenged the life balance of a lot of us, directly or indirectly. A lot of us consider there is a before and an after.

For me it sure sounded like an end but quickly life continued in other forms. It was a temporal point of rupture leading to a new reality.

1. Time is precious


First of all, you realize the true meaning of YOLO “You Only Live Once”. Yeah bro.

And then you have flashes of all those times you screamed YOLO before taking a tequila shot in a party thinking that life couldn’t be sweeter… so young and such a bouffoon. 😅🙃🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️

B/ Time is relative

Oops… you then come accross the fact that a lifetime is not as long as you thought.

Also, in times of crisis your notion of time becomes relative to the satisfaction of your basic needs.

One true luxury in this world is TIME.

2. Adaptation is the key


which is hard and quickly after that


Only the strong will continue like Damian (Marley) said.

3. Always be prepared

Train for THE day, be lucid but not paranoid.

Go to the grocery store before the very last day (like I did hehe).

4. Minimalism

Less is more. Try to do everything with less.

First of all it gives you time to shift your attention on more interesting things like activities you enjoy or see the people you love.

Second of all, nobody will leave this world with their material possessions soooo…..

Which leads us to …

5. Priorities

Each individual have their own, find out what are your deepest personal priorities. It will spare you some useful time to :

Focus on the essential.

6. Take care of yourself

If you don’t do it who will? Only you knows what makes you feel alive so it is up to you to go for it.

7. Life has good surprises

Wheel of life: I have seen people making the best of starting a new life from basically nothing. So yeah, miracles may happen too.

All I can say is that for better or worse this event washed away the past to project us in a new future. Now the future is in our hands…

Peace & Love
