February 28, 2018- Let it snow, and keep a warm heart!

 

Hello and farewell February,

it is so beautiful to see the snowflakes fall, and the city covered in a white, … it’s magical especially when you are not used to it and… kind of makes me feel dreamy…

So, what next dear April?

Some of my friends go through existential questions, one of them has found a job in the Netherlands and he is feeling lonely, … he is Dutch but apparently, after a period of time spent in the UK, that helps to confuse oneself…

My other friend is finishing a PhD, this is wonderful, but it needs so much concentration, and she feels as if she doesn’t have time to meet anyone, because she is single… and what is more, she doesn’t know if after all this effort she’ll find a job…

So, how do we feel at home?

And if the job is important, how do we adapt and feel ok in our new environment?

I have been too job-oriented also, and security is something that I don’t know, … yet.

What makes me continue, is a sense of purpose.

I KNOW there is something I need to create and to communicate.

This helps me continue, even if the only thing which is stable, is change 🙂

So February, let it snow!

February 26, 2018- Snowing in London, one step before spring!

Hello February,

snowing, is this a joke, or a metaphor for our lives? I am wearing winter clothes one step before Spring comes!

Snow is beautiful, but I come from the South, and right away I start thinking, oh, la la, cold, how am I going around as usual, …

On the other side, I know Spring is nearby, so I am like: ok, how long is this going to last?

Let’s be patient!

That’s not the easiest thing, especially when you don’t see the other end of the tunnel, whatever you are up to, no?

For me, if felt as if I were focused, so much focused, and then I forgot relaxing, seing my friends, having other type of fun… as is things that I overlooked because of my focus, started being out of balance…

Then what?

Just relax and smile.

It’s time for an active pause, meaning, taking care of me, having a bath with Magnesium flakes, eating well and sleeping, while taking care of the everyday staff without exagerating.

Yes, I am not perfect, I am just AWESOME, and so we are all, no matter what 😉

February 23, 2018- Looking forward to spring, High on Hope :-)

Hello February,

yes, I am close to … nearly … there. Spring is one step from the door. And you are bringing us the last winter snow apparently, in London.

So, I start with a Harland Miller painting, he has become one of my favorites in the UK, and I start the day with a lazy pace. It has been quiet a week again!

Very demanding, since I had to balance some of the things which were out of balance in the last month, during my obsession with a project…

February 20, 2018-Taking the Wheel in our life

Hello dear February,

still feeling a bit slower, and with different emergencies pressing, I decided to start by living in the moment, and that it is time I take the wheel… of my life!

Where does that lead, and where am I positioned in terms of the wheel of fortune?

In other words, am I a good driver, or should I leave things lead me wherever day by day?

I always wanted to drive, and I still don’t have a car, but in a city like London, this is maybe something not urgent, especially if you are trained the other way… the continental way!

Probably the best is to take the wheel AND to also have my eyes open to the signs on the road, and to be alert on the situation of the car…

Because our control is real but also, an interaction with outside factors.

Better be alert to all of them, and be open to guidance also 😉

February 19, 2018- Generating energy- or when there’s a will …

Hello February,

I have succeeded in putting together a project with great partners, but another aspect of my life is out of control. Or a few others.

And instead of feeling full of energy, I am a bit slow and sleepy. I am to face the dissatisfied clients… in a way. So, how do I generate energy and attack the issue.

Well, a colleague told me I needed six months preparation and I found myself with none practically, but the advice of previous practitioners who were not very succesful.

That way I look unstructured and unexperienced. Maybe both are true, but I know about art.

How do I keep a cool face in front of doubters?

There must be a way.

When there is a will…

February 18, 2018- How to reload our brain after huge effort

Hello February,

yes, I met my deadline, it was a race against the clock, but I DID it!

What happens next?

I feel slow, sleepy and low energy. Too good its the weekend 🙂

So, how do we reload our brains?

Any ideas?

I found a web site which gives a lot of suggestions, I will take a trial and see how it goes. How about feelings, affection and connexion? Let’s take it one step at a time… 😉

February 12, 2018- Emailing myself to sleep ;-)

Hello February,

how is it possible that tasks multiply when you are approaching a deadline? But so do people who help, appearing out of the blue!

Things change, but somehow, I have an irrational feeling it’s going to be fine!

For the time being, it’s practically midnight and I have another email to send 🙂

Or two, I will also email myself to go to sleep!

February 10, 2018- Starting the week with energy and focus

Hello February,

to begin with, I need to go to the supermarket and get some vegetables and fruits. As healthy food as possible!

Decide if I will go to my work’s gym or close to home and just get enrolled!

What else?

Breathe?

Eh, decide about my future self?

I could be less associal, and let some people in to my life. Focusing on work is nice, but still, it’s a bit lonely.

I have a sense of direction, goals to achieve, but why do I stress up in the middle and doubt myself? Why even think about myself in the middle of action?

Three skills I need to develop. What about not being stressed in the middle of a challenge? I might have more in the future if i take up responsibilities.

Concentrating easily to finish my writing? Use deadlines?

Anticipate positive social interactions?

February 7, 2018- In touch with our intuition- let’s have a cup of tea!

Hello dear February,

after an all work and no play period, I feel kind of cold and with a lot of unsatisfied others around me. And yet, is there a way to take me for a treat?

There must be something. I should probably trust, and let things come to me.

Yogi tea said so, when I opened one fo the little envelopes:

So, let’s take a cup of Yogi tea and forgive myself and others, for not being perfect:

Let’s get crazy instead.

It’s still winter, but St Valentine is near by.

Let’s have faith in love,

Love conquers all!
