February 20, 2018-Taking the Wheel in our life

Hello dear February,

still feeling a bit slower, and with different emergencies pressing, I decided to start by living in the moment, and that it is time I take the wheel… of my life!

Where does that lead, and where am I positioned in terms of the wheel of fortune?

In other words, am I a good driver, or should I leave things lead me wherever day by day?

I always wanted to drive, and I still don’t have a car, but in a city like London, this is maybe something not urgent, especially if you are trained the other way… the continental way!

Probably the best is to take the wheel AND to also have my eyes open to the signs on the road, and to be alert on the situation of the car…

Because our control is real but also, an interaction with outside factors.

Better be alert to all of them, and be open to guidance also 😉

February 19, 2018- Generating energy- or when there’s a will …

Hello February,

I have succeeded in putting together a project with great partners, but another aspect of my life is out of control. Or a few others.

And instead of feeling full of energy, I am a bit slow and sleepy. I am to face the dissatisfied clients… in a way. So, how do I generate energy and attack the issue.

Well, a colleague told me I needed six months preparation and I found myself with none practically, but the advice of previous practitioners who were not very succesful.

That way I look unstructured and unexperienced. Maybe both are true, but I know about art.

How do I keep a cool face in front of doubters?

There must be a way.

When there is a will…

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 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?

December 31, 2017-Ready for a 2017 Year in Review?

Hello December,

the year is close to an end – and it’s time for a review, without letting the food and desert debaucheries weaken my critical judgement.

How do I have fun in a creative way?

Probably, by doing things with people who appreciate and love me, even if it’s just one person. And I’d better be one of them. People I also love and appreciate.

Starting with ourselves, giving some love and appreciation for whatever we have accomplished, tried, failed, imagined, … is the first step I guess.

There is always better and higher.

But don’t we deserve a WELL DONE, for our efforts, struggles and for just being around?

 

November 6, 2017-Birthday month and how you got to be ;-)

Hey November,

for me it’s like a beginning of a New Year, so it is time for an update: am I taking the path of self-development?

Because this is independent of age, in my eyes.

Hm, more fun? More interaction with significant people?

And all the practical questions that go with it.

But first and foremost, let’s face it:

My heart’s desire is writing.

Creating.

So, no matter what, the day should include this.

Every night.

And then, sharing!

How do you meet your practical needs if you follow your heart’s desire?

It should be automatic shouldn’t it?

Let’s see how it goes.

 

November 1st, 2017- November Goals!

November welcome!

it’s a kind of chilly with 8 degrees in London this morning, and I woke faster to get to my new favorite café since my move. So, what are the goals this month?

  1. Act confidence, and submit as many manuscripts as possible, for publication
  2. look confidence, and dress up the part
  3. exercise
  4. plan things with friends, beginning from birthday celebration
  5. update for success and see what has worked and what hasn’t in my plans

I think this is enough for now 😉

October 26, 2017- How to become oneself and live with others while having morning coffee

Hello October,

yesterday I had a discussion on what it is to be oneself and to live with others. I don’t like conforming, this is boring and the opposite of life to me. But we also live with others, how does this coincide?

I put up an artistic project where I try a compromise: do something I love, but give to the Establishment something they will like, so that everyone can feel happy about it.

Now let’s see how it will go.

If making others happy doesn’t cost me my quintessential values, I can do that.

Oh, and coffee is good at Beany Green near Paddington Central.

October 9, 2017-Happiness depends on our focus

Hello October,

“Your happiness is determined by how you allocate your attention”, Prof. Dolan says, and it seems quiet an interesting idea;

so let’s see where my attention will go for the day. Because attention is the glue that holds our life together.

And by the way, happiness is both feeling pleasure and purpose.

Ok, I think I got it.

There is pleasure in being where I am right now, drinking a nice cup of coffee.

When my attention goes to the next part of the day, where I need to negotiate my rent, the attention goes to some worry thing.

When I think why I got into this, and it’s because I have a purpose, it feels better already.

October 8, 2017- Breathing in dreams, Breathing out fears

Hello October,

a Sunday morning in London, and I am already out after a walk and some breathing exercises. How do acrobats find balance? They are focused and breathe correctly, I guess.

We are also acrobats in life. We need balance and movement, focus and concentration. Fear is only useful to make us act. But if we are already moving, it could get on the way. A small amount of anything is good if it isn’t too much of it.

Have you seen these people wearing virtual reality devices who think they are walking close to the edge of a high building whereas they are sitting on a couch all the way?

We don’t need that.

We need a sense of urgency in a constructive way.

There is a bridge and we will walk this bridge to the next step, towards the realisation of ourselves and our deepest desires.

So let’s breath in, breath out and find our balance in mouvement!
