with a good sign in the horizon. A gallery has asked me to come by and discuss a collaboration together. It is not probably THE dream job, but it is great they have given me a sign. And I will prepare well, because you never know, maybe I will like these people and it will transform into something great.
In any case, it is for next week.
This is great, I just need to keep my energy level high and at the same time to take a good rest.
How do I avoid little practical things and annoyances to get in the way of my mood?
I decided to write once a day, and this morning I started a bit later than I wanted to.
I had two meetings and although people like what I do, they don’t seem to want to engage with it. They are more like, go ahead and if it succeeds I will be there, if not, I will be standing here watching you.
Would I need a change of orientation?
Approaching different type of people?
Stay at home and do nothing?
Or continue my efforts no matter what?
There is a deadline for me, and that is, end of September.
I need to get my sh..t together by then.
And see if I will stay in London, and what other options I have.
So, you and I September, need to keep a close look at each other.
I found a book on this topic, let’s hope it brings some good ideas!
so what if I fall on a star, and the moon is still further away?
The first reaction is to feel unsatisfied, after all, this star was not where I was aiming for. And feel guilty. I should have done this and this and that. Or feel powerless. After all, I seem to have objectives and I don’t fulfill them as I should. And then, if I accept the result, does it make me someone who is stuck there?
Feeling bad about oneself is wasting our time.
I have tried it, it just gives you unwelcome psychosomatic annoyances.
Well, if they are changing every day you lose a sense of direction.
But they can be a little bit flexible.
How about creating exceptions and correcting our course?
Here is how it can go/
I am great anyway, and objective X is worthwhile.
I said that I would wake up at 5.30 and today I woke up at 9.00.
I needed this because last week I took a business trip and I needed time to recover.
So much the better.
Instead of feeling guilty I give myself a free day, for rest but also for taking a mental vacation out of everything and reorienting myself towards the North Star.
