it has been three years since I decided to start a blogging adventure, as a form of a diary, addressing myself to the different months. I was living in Paris at the time, and I had to face a into my face wannabee boss and my unfullfieled artistic and love drives. I meant to write every day.
Ever since, a lot of things have changed.
I am in London.
I have published my first novel (to be translated in English soon).
My heart is still attached to Paris, but I am happy to have started new adventures here.
I would like to thank so much all of the friends who have accompanied me and offered feedback all these years.
Your advice has been valuable!
More precisely I would like to thank some of my oldest friends, but also those I havent’t mentioned with their wise comments:
here I am again, with a considerable amount of work, unanswered mails, a book plan pending and a group of people who thought my last presentation sucked.
How do I turn this around?
“Whatever you think, think the opposite”!
This is the advice of the day.
So I have some work I love and I am on top of it, everybody loves and admires my presentation, and what is more, I have an artistic portfolio that has substance and a book that is practically finished.
Glory and wealth awaits in the next corner, and YES, the World will be saved from itself!
I have observed a lady-bug this weekend and I might need both your help and hers: I need a major breakthrough and I feel that I have been stagnating for a while. The part-time job I have taken over is taking more than part of my time and writing a new book has been delayed.
And what is more, I faced challenges from my new boss and clients.
How can I turn the situation around?
By focusing on what is really important to me?
I have had a kind of inhibition as a writer because I didn’t try to publish a lot of my work from fear of criticism.
Now, it is time to act.
So I start by checking out potential publishing houses.
are you ready for love? I am in a test mood so I took this one, in Psychologies and apparently I am. So much the better. So one of these two guys really stand a chance 😉
Here it is, in case you want to try it yourself. I guess it means that you are open to other people, confident on your capacity to love and be loved, trusting that there is someone with whom you can be a match. Perfect or less perfect.
The next thing for me would be, ‘Are you ready for holidays’ and I almost know the answer!
I am packing and unpacking, after ten days spent between Rouen and Paris in France. Did I visit all the last exhibitions? Well quiet a few of them especially those of my friends. But I dedicated my last day to shopping! Yes London might be great but with my euro as currency I am faithful to Parisian shops and style. Shoes and a bag that goes with it was my priority. They should match this is the reason I walked about 15000 steps -according to my smartphone to find them 😉
But I also brought back with me a lot of feelings, between nostalgia, already six months that I have left- and happiness to find dear friends again!
do you consider yourself attractive? Because it”s not exactly the same thing as beautiful. Attractive, in my opinion, seems to be more important for dating 🙂
Hmm and it is a quality more difficult to discern. It is relational. You cannot be attractive if there is no one around to attract. It doesn’t have to do with the way you are dressed, with your manners, with your education. Or religion, or upbringing, or even colour of skin or hair. Of any particular characteristic.
And then, are we attractive to specific kind of people and vice-versa? Or it is something that affects everybody?
Could other people agree on that? Has it happened to you to see a friend’s partner who seems average to you to be presented as the most attractive man around? And you wonder if there is something you just miss?
So maybe opinions can diverge; and so much the better. Because if we all wanted oranges at the same time what would happen to the apples and the pears?
