May 29, 2018- Loving who we become

Hello May,

are you always the same or do you notice any change in you as time goes by? And I am not talking about growing up, or aging, but about the changes in the way we see things and the way other people see us.

After all, is it possible to grow without changing?

And what type of change are we talking about?

I am talking about the caterpillar to butterfly change.

Is it possible in any stage in life and any age?

Well yes, if we talk about personal development, shining, glow related to being balanced, loving and caring to ourselves and others.

I am having my morning coffee and a waitress agreed I need to go to the hairdresser.

Yes, I know.

Is this the reason I might have less dates?

Would I want a date who only cares of my hair?

How about my gorgeous smile and body?

How superficial are we after all?

Ok, let’s say that taking care of ourselves is a first sign that we respect ourselves.

But shouldn’t this start internally?

Appearance of confidence and taking care of oneself are appealing, but the REAL thing is so much more valuable!

I see people who only have the appearance, to be willing to give up their money in order to get the feeling of it.

But is the internal thing enough to get around if your hair starts looking like a bird’s nest?

All this comes from having a partial rejection from a man I had a drink with.

Well, meeting people is nice, but doing it from our “home”.

When I am in my center, I feel balanced, and my connexions might be.

Any connexions

May 16, 2018-Magic May, 30 days to blossom

Dear May,

after being kind of negative on my actual job, a health problem my mother had, made me focus on something else and put things into perspective.

I feel grateful for being there for her and for feeling that I can take of my parents.

How about starting to take care of me?

It is good to try things but not to struggle and to be afraid I am not up to the challenges that the day will bring.

How can I address that?

By doing something immediately.

Working is great, but it has to be part of joy and magic.

So, what next?

Well, no mater what, I need to get in touch with my internal compass.

Sit on the top of a hill, metaphorically or literally, and have a broader perspective.

Magic May, Spring is here, how about emerging and blossoming again?

April 5 and 6, 2018- Day 3 and 4 of challenge- taking a break

Hello April,

I realize that I feel kind of overwhelmed, and that some of my efforts are not paying off, meaning that I have some unhappy “clients” not safisfied with my outcomes.

It is true that I felt pressured to accept this job because I didn’t see another option at the time.

Was I not to do it, and change country, instead of staying in London, yet another time?

It feels as if I need a small break, to let things settle and give my brain and emotions time to digest it.

And see where I want to go from here.

March 5, 2018- Making a Choice to be Strong

Hello March,

You arrived covered in snow, and I am just opening up reluctantly, as I am someone from the South, not used to these temperatures!

I need a Miracle, and loads of Good Luck, because clearly, the task I have seems Herculean; and I feel ready to hibernate instead of going faster and becoming more effective…

So, what is your advice?

Go and enroll to the gym?

Yes, ok.

Anything else?

Go kiss someone

Like who?

Get out in the street and kiss the first person?

Yes, why not?

Do something spontaneous and crazy

I am doing that most of the time, and then I am afraid of the consequences.

Yes but doesn’t it feel good?

It does; so I will…

What if I puss away the people around me?

You will make space for others who are closer to you

Ok, how about going to the hairdresser?

That would do…

I would like to be in touch with other creative people

Then what are you waiting for?

How about reinforcing your strengths instead of working on your weaknesses?

That’s a good point…

It could take less time…

How about getting yourself a prize?

And helping out someone else?

Thanks March, that seems helpful 🙂

February 26, 2018- Snowing in London, one step before spring!

Hello February,

snowing, is this a joke, or a metaphor for our lives? I am wearing winter clothes one step before Spring comes!

Snow is beautiful, but I come from the South, and right away I start thinking, oh, la la, cold, how am I going around as usual, …

On the other side, I know Spring is nearby, so I am like: ok, how long is this going to last?

Let’s be patient!

That’s not the easiest thing, especially when you don’t see the other end of the tunnel, whatever you are up to, no?

For me, if felt as if I were focused, so much focused, and then I forgot relaxing, seing my friends, having other type of fun… as is things that I overlooked because of my focus, started being out of balance…

Then what?

Just relax and smile.

It’s time for an active pause, meaning, taking care of me, having a bath with Magnesium flakes, eating well and sleeping, while taking care of the everyday staff without exagerating.

Yes, I am not perfect, I am just AWESOME, and so we are all, no matter what 😉

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?
