June 7, 2018- Romance in a busy week

Hello June,

how do you know if something is a romance and not a creation of your imagination? Especially when you have an inclination for daydreaming and creating artificial realities…

And on top of that, when you are busy…

Hmm, let’s see.

The best thing is to relax and let things happen in their own rhythm I guess…

It is like waiting results from an exam.

Have I passed?

Instead of thinking about it, let’s do something else and the result will come in any case 🙂

This is London romance by the way 😉

May 28, 2018- Visualisation

Hello May,

I have heard about visualisation, and to be honest, I might have tried it, but in a not very serious way. I decided to get myself into it, and even find a vision board. To be serious with that.

So, I am buying a vision board online and I am putting myself to it.

I will try anything I have read or heard of, to see how things go.

I also took an online.

A new book.

And the firm decision to wake up at 5.30 in the morning.

Anything else?

Like for example, ways to relax and have fun?

Date? Something almost forgotten in the long winter nights?

Breathing in and breathing out.

Take care of my chi.

Stop carrying all this weight around me.

What if I just arrived where I am now, without any other thought?

What if I saw everything around with fresh eyes?

Let’s try that.

April 29, 2018- How to turn sadness into creativity

Hello April,

my spring break involved some challenges on family member’s health problems, and here I am, in my hometown, dealing with challenging realities and feelings.

My fears are not only with that, but with the kind of impact it can have into my life. Because, let’s face it, there is some percentage of selfishness in our worry for people close to us.

So, how can I choose a better feeling thought?

To begin with, this experience, helps me put things into perspective. Job insecurity, money or other similar questions are secondary to health.

Then, it’s like, how about feeling I have been struggling in a certain direction without getting into a place where I can say, I have accomplished something I can keep with me.

A place to rest. As if my successes were not stepping-stones.

But is this true?

Not really.

Actually, I have learnt to rebound after pretty challenging situations.

Somehow, I found solutions.

I have become resilient.

Then, let’s face it, security was not my number 1 goal.

A meaningful experience is my goal.

And I feel gratitude towards myself and others, to have worked in this direction.

I feel grateful for my friends standing by me.

I feel grateful for the wonderful job I have been doing.

These are challenging times for everyone. We need to give it our best.

March 21, 2018-Spring Equinox, time for re-generation, RIGHT NOW

Hello March,

 

I had tequila last night to celebrate the spring equinox, but even if it was just a glass, my head is not very clear this morning. Anyway, it was worth it because it triggered some dancing 🙂

Now, coffee, this other drug and fuel for life.

The neighbours are still having last summers plastic flamingoes on the balcony.

So, let’s do the job, as my friend Samurai Robert suggested.

And let’s go to the gym also.

So, shouldn’t I wait for another second?

No?

NOW right now is the moment.

I am writing this email, I am concentrating and focusing on my purpose.

It is a sunny day, and the first day of spring.

Haven’t we hibernated long enough, those of us who are in the north hemisphere?

For those in the south, a beautiful autumn is around the corner, and it is also such a beautiful season!

February 10, 2018- Starting the week with energy and focus

Hello February,

to begin with, I need to go to the supermarket and get some vegetables and fruits. As healthy food as possible!

Decide if I will go to my work’s gym or close to home and just get enrolled!

What else?

Breathe?

Eh, decide about my future self?

I could be less associal, and let some people in to my life. Focusing on work is nice, but still, it’s a bit lonely.

I have a sense of direction, goals to achieve, but why do I stress up in the middle and doubt myself? Why even think about myself in the middle of action?

Three skills I need to develop. What about not being stressed in the middle of a challenge? I might have more in the future if i take up responsibilities.

Concentrating easily to finish my writing? Use deadlines?

Anticipate positive social interactions?

January 22, 2018-A day with a lot of potential, and how to attract luck

Hello January,

Luck is a question again: when preparation meets opportunity a wise person has said, so how do I turn luck on my side?

To begin with, there are a few questions that bother me a little bit, and somehow I feel I need a clone to take care of everything and to satisfy everyone I am in contact with.

Certain things can get better asap. Others? Others, have been avoided (by me ;-).

I know, this is not the best strategy ever.

On the other hand, it was the best I could do for the time being.

Now, can I change in the future?

Yes I can 🙂

January 16, 2018- Facing Beginner’s Stress- Prepare, Breath and Play

Hello January,

starting today my part-time job, I felt kind of self-conscious and stressed up: will I rise to the occasion? Will I like it enough to give my best? Etc etc…

So, what to do in this case?

To begin with, I need to identify the source.

Deep down, I wonder if I have time to write and publish, my no 1 heart’s desire, or almost.

If I stay relaxed in a busy way, I will have an hour a day. If I am focused, this should be enough, that’s how I wrote my first book.

Second, do I like what I do, well enough to invest serious effort?

I like it well enough, so I should do some serious preparation.

Apparently, if you see some pictures of handsome Brits and Irish men, as a girl, you feel better:

January 11, 2018-Back to London and to a faster pace ;-)

Hello January,

hello London, I am back here, with my morning coffee, and my job starting today. I love this morning time when I get a chance to dream and to plan, and to float over the rooftops.

So, here I am, and if my coffee time is here to stay, let’s see what else is going to change!

Let’s start with a Harland Miller painting because it makes me smile 🙂

January 5, 2018- New Year, Inspiration, Goals

Welcome January!

How do I start 2018 in the best way? I have been looking for inspirational readings and I am divided between “how to” books and all time classics. Great writers give you an insight into human experience, in a way that self-help books will never do.

On the other hand, contemporary books might deal with contemporary challenges, and for this reason, I would go for both.

Now, I am looking for something action oriented.

2018 is the year I am getting into new challenges, and I need something to accompany the transformation to a more confident version of myself.

Any suggestions?
