November 26, 2018- Love Ourself 30 day ritual, Day 1

Hello November,

while bouncing back, I am starting a Love Ourself 30-day ritual, from today. So, that means doing one thing a day that shows appreciation.

Good Nutrition, taking care of our body and beautifying it, exercise, loving relationship to oneself expressed in concrete actions.

First things first, I realize I need a body lotion because I have forgotten to buy one, and yes, my skin needs it.

Also, being relaxed is a MUST.

I happen to have some things bothering me, and I am losing my calm from time to time.

How do I react to this?

To begin with, problems or impasse are not usually what they look like when you take a distance.

How to do this?

Going for a walk, observing people, animals, trees.

How am I doing in the job sector?

It looks good, though I will have confirmation after December 13.

I also need to answer if I can commit to a new home.

Right now my finances are a bit tight.

What do I do in this case?

Pray.

And go around everywhere.

And talk to anyone who might have an idea.

And change to a growth mindset.

After all, the only reason for being where I am will be to continue growing.

And I also need a moisturizer for my brain

November 17, 2018- Bounce Back Big Update of 31 days

Hello November,

I started a Bounce Back Big 31 days, trying to do something differently.

I got in touch with mentors and asked questions, I also tried to follow these suggestions:

  1. Do the thing you always wanted to do
  2. Say what you always wanted to say
  3. Feel emotions you never let yourself feel
  4. Allow space for discovery and uncertainty in your life
  5. When you feel a desire, follow it all the way through
  6. Do one thing in the direction of your dreams
  7. Express yourself creatively
  8. Be vulnerable
  9. Take a risk
  10. Do something you’ve never done

1. I did small things I wanted, but not something major. For example, I always wanted to ride a horse, or to become an actor, a playwright, a pilot, … but I didn’t really start something major. It felt like I needed to find myself a job

2. I said things I wanted to say, but there are much more, and the thing is how to say them without insulting others, especially when I disagree with something I see

3. I have a range of emotions I don’t allow myself to feel, especially negative ones, should I go there?

4. There is a lot of uncertainty in my life, and I have tried something new in this period

5. I have followed my desire for creation

6. I did one thing in the direction of my dreams, I found a new partner

7. I started a new novel

8.I got vulnerable by telling people some things that hurt me

9. I took many risks (personal, financial, professional, …)

10. I did something I never have done before

October 1st and 2nd, 2018- Bounce Back Big days 14 and 15-

Welcome October,

I am in the middle of this, and I still feel in the twilight zone, having tried different approaches and breathing in and out every time I get stressed up.

So, what to do?

I have tried connecting, and I have got advice going into different directions, which requires some changes. And these changes seem to require time.

I have been here before.

A friend of mine noticed I have been stressing up now and then.

He is right.

I somehow found myself here and there in some type of critical situation.

Am I doing it to avoid facing other issues?

Maybe.

Am I the only one in this situation?

Hell, no.

This has something to do with where we stand.

Is there a way forward?

Apparently, in the direction opposing the direction of whatever the problem is.

In this direction are the things I enjoy: writing and creating.

I also have projects.

I have talents.

I am a brilliant person.

I have nice eyebrows.

So?

So, I deserve a feeling of security coming from my basic needs met.

And so it has happened in some way until now.

For most of them.

Something to be grateful about.

Yes, I am a rebel at heart.

I want things to go my way, which is the creative way.

Are there places encouraging it?

Should I create one myself?

I realize that I had some major setbacks in my path, but every time, there was something coming up which kept me on track.

That’s how I ended up in London, for better I hope.

should I stay or should I go?

Let’s have a cup of tea 😉

September 28-30, 2018- Bounce Back Big days 11-13

Hello September,

you want to know if I have been doing something to go in the direction of my dreams?

Well, on Friday, I send an application, not with much conviction, to be honest.

On Saturday, I contacted a friend who is a coach: I thought I needed an outside opinion.

I am waiting for the budget to see if I can afford it right now.

How about some psychological support?

I would take some, with pleasure: as long as it’s free and quality.

So?

Any news?

After taking half the day off, I started to panick.

Then, I read about being master of my emotions and thoughts.

It’s the only way I can go forward. But on the other side, accepting and feeling compassionate of myself for not always being on TOP, it’s also important.

Yes, I am a weak human being.

I am afraid, and I don’t know if I have succeeded my goals.

Plus, I have put some family members in danger with my big projects, I asked them to support.

So, now what?

If I start punishing myself, is this going to help?

No.

Yesterday, when I was wondering in central London, feeling bored, I realized something.

I might invent some problems because I don’t want to deal with a basic question:

Where can I do something creative, feel at home and live from it with similar-minded people ever after?

Maybe there is one way to find about that:

If I suggest something that others might also want to follow 😉

If not, at least I will feel free to do what I want

September 26 and 27- Bounce Back Big days 9 and 10- by taking a step back

Hello September,

I have taken a step forward yesterday on seeing that I was good at something I thought I sucked: communicating my ideas to other people in an oral presentation.

Actually, I had the courage to present for people who are experts in the field, and they liked it, although there are always things to work on.

After that, and a meeting with an administration that always takes a lot of energy, I continued with hot chocolate and wandering around London in Covent-Garden. Responsible or not, it seemed like the thing to do. Instead of applying for a job I bought myself a new agenda.

Kind of irresponsible I would say.

Yes, but I kind of needed it.

And I feel like needing a rest today, slow down and do something to reinvigorate myself.

Starting from a fruit smoothie.

And continuing with anything nice

September 25, 2018-Bounce Back Big day 8

Hello September,

morning coffee out, and getting back to the BBB list, or how not to sell myself short: doing something that is going in the direction of my dreams not that of others;

What would that be?

Hmm, I need to contact the people at the gallery I am to be associated to;

how about discovering something new?

I just participated on a Facebook debate on the meaning of being a hero.

Does it count?

So, contacting a new person and doing something new and exciting!

September 22, 2018- Bounce Back Big, day 5- Saturday morning coffee

Hello September,

so, continuing on my networking resolutions, I contact more people than usual, asking them for advice, ideas, insights; starting from those I think they can bring some light and continuing to practically everyone I know.

The thing is, to know how to make the difference between what is useful and what is not: I would say, start with the advice of those who seemed to be where I want to go; and then go everyone else, and finish with my gut feeling.

There is something I can do better, or if I do things so well, did I make that known to anyone? Am I waiting to be discovered hiding?

First, I need to wake up.

So, a cup of coffee is a must

September 10, 2018- Staying stuck or moving forward- September Inspiration

Dear September,

so how do I move forward when I feel overwhelmed and stuck?

Apparently, I need to look in the opposite direction, towards my goals.

And change my vocabulary.

I am feeling ready to bounce back. This is a good spot to start for a wonderful bouncing opportunity.

I am feeling ready for a nice cup of coffee or a fruit juice.

And then I will see.

After the juice I will write down 10 new ideas and I will take action in one of them;

How about that?

 

 

August 23, 2018- Emerging from Summer-nation :-)

Hello August,

already the 23rd, and I am sitting in a café, my almost favorite occupation, starting slowly to emerge from my summer-nation, a similar to hibernation state.

I found time to sleep, eat, watch favorite movies and see my friends and family; look around and observe the flight of the insects, wonder about the mood of my cat.

In other words, extremely productive occupations.

No, I haven’t been by the seaside still. My parent’s home is close to the mountains, in South of France, although not far from the sea, you need to go by car.

And the furthest I have been is a few kilometers away.

In a kind of lazy mood, you see.

After sending dozens of job applications in places that seemed appealing and others that didn’t, and after putting together extravagant projects, I am to look for funding for, I decided to look further into places I really want to go, and see how I can get there.

What do I mean by extravagant projects?

The kind of projects that don’t seem close to anything I see and demand a huge funding to become a reality.

Should I give up in dreaming?

Or look for other crazy dreamers around?

I somehow favor the second option.

Dream and never image

May 16, 2018-Magic May, 30 days to blossom

Dear May,

after being kind of negative on my actual job, a health problem my mother had, made me focus on something else and put things into perspective.

I feel grateful for being there for her and for feeling that I can take of my parents.

How about starting to take care of me?

It is good to try things but not to struggle and to be afraid I am not up to the challenges that the day will bring.

How can I address that?

By doing something immediately.

Working is great, but it has to be part of joy and magic.

So, what next?

Well, no mater what, I need to get in touch with my internal compass.

Sit on the top of a hill, metaphorically or literally, and have a broader perspective.

Magic May, Spring is here, how about emerging and blossoming again?
