July 15, 2017- Building up confidence

Hello July,

I woke up at 5.30 and reflected on the way to reach my goal. And this goal is, to get the bet job in my field, and to be the best person for it. To contribute to something beautiful and meaningful through my art.

What do I do with fears, rejections etc? Can I hide them under the carpet?

They might come back.

Fears that I am fooling myself.

Ok, even if this were true, I can act as if.

What if I don’t persuade anyone else?

I can start from persuading myself.

What could I bring that is  useful ?

I think I have a unique way to see things.

Can I bring people with me? It feels kind of lonely up here.

Well, this is secondary. But eventually, you need to try to see how it goes.

Don’t look for approval, but feedback is good.

How do I change my routine to keep up the energy and the confidence?

How about start with taking a confident posture? this is important.

apparently, when you put your hands on your belt you already feel more confident.

So exercise is good;

But it has to feel good so that we treat our body with respect

July 11, 2017- What to do when you fall on a star :-) -Correcting your course

Hello July,

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.

Change objectives?

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.

June 25, 2017-Weekly update of success

Hello June,

Here I am again, on a quick update of my decision to wake up earlier and get more active in my daily life.

A lot of things have been accomplished: new friendships, new colleagues, mentors, windows of opportunity and finally good luck.

Things to improve?

Decision 1. I will wake up earlier than 7.30

Decision 2. More serious exercise: I have been stretching at home but I still haven’t honoured my subscription to the gym this month.

Decision 3. I do something for me, such as massage for example;

Decision 4. I become more open to real relationships with people who do the same instead of ‘profile’ relationships where you engage as part of you

Decision 5. I reach for the moon and I do everything to get there.

June 15, 2017-Waking up at 5.30

Hello June,

I have made it today! It was at 5.30 that I woke up, let’s see how it goes. I am slightly more alert than yesterday at the same time. Let’s see how it goes. I will post every day to check on progress.

I feel this is it, it’s time to believe in myself instead of feeling a potential hiding somewhere and beaming out from time to time.

June 14, 2017- Asking for feedback

June hello,

recentering is quiet a thing, it happens with Googlemaps when you walk somewhere and you are out of track; so how do I do it?

Now, the objective here is to find the best place in the world for my objective.

Someplace I can continue growing.

And where I have the means to do it.

Somewhere I feel good.

And others feel good about it too.

So?

Well, I can apply for jobs here and there.

But I realise I need to publish more.

It is probably best to have some things out than wait for the perfect text.

So let’s get myself out there!

June 11, 2017: To change or not to change? Both

Hello June,

here I am again, thinking about the next step. You may say, maybe you need to act instead of thinking. But without any plan you get all over the place and might just be confused.

So, I feel like a misunderstood genius, what should I do about it June?

Find like-minded people and do something together?

Wait for someone to discover me?

Go out with my project/book/short-story and invite others to react to it?

Go for a massage?

All of the above?

June 8, 2017- alarm snooze at 4.00 in the morning

Hello June,

I set the alarm at 4.00 in the morning instead of 6.00 I meant to wake up and I ended up at 7.00; in any case, I am happy with that.

The good thing, I am much more awake at 9.00 than in the previous days, and writing. This is great I would say.

I am checking again my short story and try to refocus my strategy after a double no from two job applications.

I didn’t have my heart to it. Some haters from the Parisian world were there.

So, where to?

To my next adventure!

May 23rd, 2017- Don’t be so hard on yourself! Dance!

Hello May,

with a list of to-do things I feel overwhelmed!

How do I get back my concentration, feel good and motivation?

Dancing is the best thing so here it is, fun time because it is spring and because, we deserve it!

Be it by myself, with friends, or on the dance floor, a little dance with a few steps is enough to get me back to track!

And you know what, I start a 21 day writing challenge where I will post every day 🙂

April at a crossroad: towards greener pastures?

This blog took me out of a dysfunctional working environment.

From Paris to London.

After one year and a half in London, I am again at a crossroad: will I get a job allowing me to continue my stay?

Or should I look for greener pastures elsewhere?

I am going to use this blog again as a confident for my adventures to be.

April 3, 2017- Anniversary decisions

Dear April,

I was wondering if I will continue this blog in this form. And the first answer that comes to my mind is yes, for questions of facility. Let’s face it: my London stay has given me extra work, and the rhythm is more intense than in Paris.

But some kind of update seems necessary.

Here is what I know you want to ask me:

a. how are you doing dearest one, how do you feel?

I am feeling well, but a little bit stressed. I know this is an illusion; do you hurry a flower to blossom? Take the time an orchid needs for the flowers.

b. Do you like being in London?

I do, I have come to love this city, although it doesn’t feel home yet. Although I am in touch with a lot of talented people, I miss a group of like-minded crazy individuals.

So, are you going to do something about it? Or just pretend this is fine?

I think I will do something about it. I will take initiatives.

c. Someone told me to ditch friend-enemies too. They cost energy.

How are you doing this?

By sending them love and not letting them to get into my space.

d. How are we doing in the love department?

I am kind of in love and I date a few people.

e. How are your projects?

They are doing well, I have been productive. But I need something to have more fun and relax.

What would do for my best friend in this case? I would take me out to do something beautiful.

And I would tell her all the nice things I believe about her.

Ok, I am doing it.

f. How about the different resolutions you have had? Cutting Sugar, etc?

For now I have limited sugar apart from a small bar of chocolate daily and one teaspoonful in the morning and I am happy with it.

g. Any specific project for the future?

Yes, to prepare for a Big Leap.

And I will use this blog for this purpose.
