September 22, 2017- Keeping focused while life happens

Hello September,

Regarding painful past that comes up when you are going through interviews, the essential thing is what you can do for the people who interview you: NOW and in the future.

The past is a path to the actual PRESENT. And it could change, as we change our way to see it.

So yes, for example, there is this and that and the other. But look, this is why I can put together this exhibit in such a successful way now.

As for the rest, how to keep oneself focused, while things happen around, affecting our concentration and will?

Just by gazing in this direction, and saying, this is what matters most, I will give it my full attention.

September 20, 2017- Preparing for a presentation. How to deal with the past going forward

Hello September,

As I am going through interviews, I have a slight apprehension about questions concerning my past, especially when the road had bumps and when my path was not straight

How can I talk about failures, mistakes, or aggressions without feeling down or inadequate?

Ok, everything has made me what I am today.

Should I focus on what they need?

Can I for example, organise an exhibition?

Yes.

This is what counts.

And more practice.

Any ideas?

September 12, 2017- Morning café mood

Hello September,

the busy or the empty café for the morning?

If I go to the empty and I fill sleepy, I might continue on the same mood.

If I go to the busy, there is not much work to be done because people are buzzing around.

So?

I chose the busy.

And here I am, writing my post with numerous people passing by, in and out.

I have promised myself to focus and be alert to all the opportunities that will come my way.

Let’s be busy in a meaningful way.

Not agitating myself, but doing.

September 9 and 10, 2017- DreamJob challenge, day 2 and 3

So, here I am September,

with a good sign in the horizon. A gallery has asked me to come by and discuss a collaboration together. It is not probably THE dream job, but it is great they have given me a sign. And I will prepare well, because you never know, maybe I will like these people and it will transform into something great.

In any case, it is for next week.

This is great, I just need to keep my energy level high and at the same time to take a good rest.

How do I avoid little practical things and annoyances to get in the way of my mood?

I ignore them and focus on the objective.

What is the most important thing right now?

September 8, 2017 to October 8, 2017-Day 1 out of a month to get myself dream-job

Hello September,

we are having a kind of emergency here, needing to fix things so that I can go on in my multiple creative projects and adventures.

One month to get myself my dream-job.

Challenges:

a. there are haters in my field: I seem too wild, provocative and … dum creative. And most of all, they have more power than me.

b. Some people in my field don’t take me seriously. I haven’t this or that or the other. Or I have too much of this or that or the other.

c. I find some of their conversations boring, and they think I am too unpredictable…

d. I am running out of time and resources

Positive points/

a. My work is appreciated but other people in my field.

b. There are people whose company I appreciate and I find creative to talk to them about our work

c. I have a great new idea

d. There are people who would like to give me a hand.

e. I am running out of time and resources

f. I started going to the gym

 

So?

I am a resourceful person. The lack of time could be a good thing, and the same for the lack of resources when you are creative.

How can I face the difficult people? I can try kindness when they are into my face. Or simply avoid them.

How can I find the places where there are more people like me? By trying and error? Internet? All of them?

Update

It seems I have taken a huge risk in the last two years and it is still unknown weather it has payed. The solution? Continue with a still bigger one, but make sure some of my work, book, etc gets published.

September 6, 2017- Deadline to get my sh..t together, end of September

Ok September,

I decided to write once a day, and this morning I started a bit later than I wanted to.

I had two meetings and although people like what I do, they don’t seem to want to engage with it. They are more like, go ahead and if it succeeds I will be there, if not, I will be standing here watching you.

Would I need a change of orientation?

Approaching different type of people?

Stay at home and do nothing?

Or continue my efforts no matter what?

There is a deadline for me, and that is, end of September.

I need to get my sh..t together by then.

And see if I will stay in London, and what other options I have.

So, you and I September, need to keep a close look at each other.

I found a book on this topic, let’s hope it brings some good ideas!

Get Your Sh*t Together

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.

September 1st, 2017-Getting on the front line

Welcome September!

Yes, I will no longer run and hide, I will get out there and find who would like to join in and work on a collective art project with me!

September first, I feel it’s time to take a chance and jump in.

To begin with, I am going to ask for help.

Here I am, with an idea. Or lots of ideas.

How can they become reality?

With other people’s help. People who would join, transform and contribute to them.

Am I afraid of people who don’t like me on my field?

Yes, but it is time to go and find some others.

Who do.

There is no time for false modesty here.

Let’s go and have this project happen!

August 31, 2017-Back to School and Back to London

Hello August,

I have just got back to London and to a beautiful sunshine, although the temperature is lower than at the South of France. And here is a pile of bills waiting for me, and a very busy month ahead.

Somehow, and without no tangible reason, I am very optimistic. I take a break and enjoy the sunshine and a cup of coffee before dealing with re-al-ity.

I feel that I have something special to contribute to the world, through my art, and presence.

Yes, I have been a misunderstood genius, but I will come into terms with my co-humans into this life even if I have to go around the world.

To begin with, I realise I need a personal assistant 😉

The second thing, is to look into the priorities and not the urgent things.

August 12, 2017-Going South-French Riviera time

Hello August,

Isn’t it great to go for a swim on a hot day of August? Enough of London and of rainy days, welcome South of France!

This is not exactly where I have been but being close to the sea is enough to recharge my energy.

And yes, in my new Samurai attitude I do wake up early and I have a lot of work to do. There is a deadline for the 17th of August already and another one beginning of September.

But I take it easy 🙂
