January 24, 2021- Post-a-day- Day 15 out of 71- Every day, give yourself a present!

Hello January,

The week-end is a nice time to update progress. So, how is it going?

I read “the Book of Joy” and revisited the “Bullet Journal Method”, to better organise myself.

Ever since I know me, I had two challenges: balancing overwhelming emotions, and respecting time constraints.

Let’s face it: for me, being an artist is letting our imagination run wild, live in the present, follow our heart.

On the other side, real life is work, school and an infinity of time specific constraints. When I loose the notion of time, reading a good book or writing, I might wake up late for a meeting, or finding out that I have burnt my lunch.

How do I balance my wild imagination and the need for freedom, with the necessity of living in a specific time and place with certain constraints?

I went for help to the Bullet Journal, and now I try to implement what it says.

Reading the chapter on Gratitude, I also took note of a very beautiful thought attributed to Agent Cooper, a character in David Lynch’s film: Twin Peaks:

“Every day, once a day, give yourself a present”!

  1. I like this very much, every day make sure to give yourself a present. Unplanned, just let it happen 🙂 It can be so hard to do when it seems the seconds tick away faster than ever with so much ‘too do’ but when it happens, it’s bliss. Take care, and wish you a great weekend.
