getting what you want and not getting what you want could amount to the same degree of happiness. So why bother wanting something in the first place?
I wouldn’t have an answer to that. It seems that accepting things we can’t change can be also important as having the freedom to choose what we want. When our ambition is bounded or unbounded there seems to be a difference. We have the capacity to manufacture the commodity we chace when we look for experiences.
So if we make a choice let it be for other reasons than making us feel good 😉
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!
