April 4, 2017-Put worrying thoughts in a bottle and send them away

Hello April,

here you are again… so how do I empty my pockets and bag from the worrying thoughts which might emerge?

I see that this is the only way … what, to write a letter and put it in a bottle? And let the stream or the sea take them?

This sounds like a good idea…

I can do it in the form of questions…

I have read that those who live in the future are anxious, that would be me today,

those who live in the past can be depressed

and those who live in the present feel peace…

so, how do we prepare the future?

How do I make sure of my capacities to face any challenge?

Because I have come this far.

I have faced pretty awesome challenges.

And here I am.

Anybody has.

The future will look after itself.

And the present?

The present is a gift.

And we can share it with those we love in whichever form they are 🙂

April 1rst, 2017: 3 Year Blog-Anniversary!

Dear April,

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:

March 31, 2017- Spring rolling ;-)

Hey March,

thanks for the great moments and for bringing Spring again; the trees on flower, the bees, and the rest of nature falling in love, how can you resist this powerful urge?

Do you realize I am one step away from my 3 year blog-anniversary?

So, a time to update and see what has been accomplished, and new goals for the future.

I started with the idea I needed to change something in my circumstances. I understood I start from changing myself.

And here I am today.

Still on the road but with major changes and some for the best. From Paris to London.

January 31, 2017- Accepting oneself, instead of trying to change

January hi,

I was talking to a friend about imperfections, such as for example being messy or late in appointments; or changing plans. Someone has criticised me recently and my new friend was: hey, accept who you are and stop self-criticism!

It is more important to accept oneself than to try to change according to some perfectionist ideal.

So, why did I attract someone critical? I guess because I am myself a little bit, this way.

His concern was that I am not valuing his time and I plan meetings only where it suits me.

On my side; I pleaded that he could have refused my plan if it didn’t suit him too. And yes; my work is a priority right now.

So, my friend is right. Respecting others doesn’t mean to try to fit in their image of perfect behaviour. And when I see people I love I need to feel relaxed.

January 7, 2017- Inviting Luck: opportunity and preparation

Hello January,

any ideas about how to invite Luck to take a permanent residence at my place? And get her to work for me? Or is there a quality of super luck to develop as a character trait?

A wise person must have said that “luck is when preparation meets opportunity”

So if I want better results I might start doing things which were considered impossible for my 2016 self.

One idea that stuck with me ever since the first day of 2017 is that I need to align my different goals so that they don’t seem to contradict each other.

If for example, I wish for a great job, I shouldn’t feel that I should sacrifice my personal life to it. Or do I secretly feel that you can’t have everything you want/need and that you have to pay for whatever good comes your way?

So the first thing is to feel I deserve good things, and that they could stick together. If I want to deserve them, I can spread good luck around me. There are plenty of ways to do that.

July 17, 2016: We are in this together!

Hello July,

are we in this together you and I? If you are too busy with June and August, drinking cocktails by the sea, please take some action!

After all, isn’t the purpose to Beautify the world? I am organizing artistic events, come on! In any case, getting some help is always important. Some things you just have to realize them as a team.

So here is the song of the Euro football dedicated to team-spirit:

July 11, 2016: When the going gets tough the tough get going

Hello July

I realise you are a very demanding month, the last two years I find myself organising summer art exhibitions and there is always a last-minute cancellation to fill in everybody’s nerves tense, and still… will pull it through…

So should I let myself stress? I try different solutions… after all, these summer exhibitions haven’t changed my life in a spectacular way… they contribute to the path I have taken, but there is not this one moment which determines everything… I guess there is always a possibility to change, to correct, …

This is what I tell myself, it is a marathon we are running for success, so the most important thing is to stay fit and continue running … not to sprint for 100 meters and then fall down breathless…

July 1-4, 2016: Take action now!

Welcome, July!

ever since the first day I have been in an “action” mood, starting with dating… writing and … new art exhibition for the end of July!

Normally, I have a tendency to procrastinate, and leave things to take their natural course… but it is time to accelerate!
