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!

October 5, 2017- Sens of purpose day

Hello October,

when the going gets tough, the tough get going… a wise person has said… so what makes us go?

I have a project, an idea, I think it is important to share it, in the best conditions… I am confident that it’s going to add something to other people’s lives. Some might find it strange.

So, how do I go about it?

Enter the arena you shy away from is an advise.

Ok, this arena might be people who doubt me.

Instead of trying at my level, I might change level and setting.

A different type of gallery, in another setting.

Let’s give it a try.

October 3rd, 2017- Today is THE day- Momentum

Hello October,

it feels like today is THE day. The first day of a new layer of self to come to the surface. The kind of self who is assertive and who finds solutions to all the challenges that could arise.

The kind of self which is ready for action.

Who is a manifestation of “when there is a will, there is a way”

So, how am I going to reinvent myself today?

I am going to join the like-minded and get some momentum!

Move it April!

Move!

October 2nd, 2017- Positive thought for Monday

Welcome October,

with things happening fast, it is important to concentrate on the slow and to do whatever enhances our objective. One important objective is enough. I am happy to have found mine. It took me some time, the last three years it was taking shape slowly but steadily. I have this artistic project. And I am looking everywhere for the best place to be to develop it!

And some resolutions: to wake up earlier in the morning, to look in one direction but to let inspiration come.

And to meet the people with whom we will walk together.

And to begin with, I am walking with me.

I walk everyday, a little bit further.

And eventually I am getting somewhere.

Each day, a step further.

September 5, 2017- Postaday to shape up ;-)

Hello September!

let’s shape up with a post-a-day! A friend of mine is telling me she is so busy she doesn’t have time for waxing, but I will make sure I laugh and express myself and feelings in an every day-to-day basis!

So time for waxing, laughing, exercise, and on the contrary, no time for unproductive or self-doubt thoughts.

No time for self-pity and comparisons, what do I say when I am asked, what do you do?

I do as I go.

I have a plan.

A project.

A dream.

It is taking shape as I go.

Every day.

What is the plan for the day?

Breathing in and out, and having coffee in the morning, in one of my favorite places.

Only cleaners on the road and construction workers are out at 7.00 am.

Almost.

I also run into a friend and his family.

Oh, yes, I am going to read a poem just to change.

July 11, 2017- What to do when you fall on a star :-) -Correcting your course

Hello July,

so what if I fall on a star, and the moon is still further away?

The first reaction is to feel unsatisfied, after all, this star was not where I was aiming for. And feel guilty. I should have done this and this and that. Or feel powerless. After all, I seem to have objectives and I don’t fulfill them as I should. And then, if I accept the result, does it make me someone who is stuck there?

Feeling bad about oneself is wasting our time.

I have tried it, it just gives you unwelcome psychosomatic annoyances.

Change objectives?

Well, if they are changing every day you lose a sense of direction.

But they can be a little bit flexible.

How about creating exceptions and correcting our course?

Here is how it can go/

I am great anyway, and objective X is worthwhile.

I said that I would wake up at 5.30 and today I woke up at 9.00.

I needed this because last week I took a business trip and I needed time to recover.

So much the better.

Instead of feeling guilty I give myself a free day, for rest but also for taking a mental vacation out of everything and reorienting myself towards the North Star.
