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.

June 21, 2017-Moving forward

Hello June,

how do we move forward? Is for example moving forward going towards New York or California? Just to take an example.

Is moving forward going North or South?

It all depends on the objective, no?

But is the destination that counts or the fact that we move?

It seems like moving is important.

Towards a goal.

If you have lived all your life in Paris, maybe it’s good to see something else.

Despite the fact that half of the world’s population dreams to get there.

If you are born in New York you need to get out of there also.

I don’t use examples from other places, which could be just wonderful or horrible for different reasons.

And stability?

Do we have to travel around the world then?

I guess that moving from the couch to the desk we are writing is a huge move for someone who travels in thought 🙂

June 15, 2017-Waking up at 5.30

Hello June,

I have made it today! It was at 5.30 that I woke up, let’s see how it goes. I am slightly more alert than yesterday at the same time. Let’s see how it goes. I will post every day to check on progress.

I feel this is it, it’s time to believe in myself instead of feeling a potential hiding somewhere and beaming out from time to time.

June 14, 2017- Asking for feedback

June hello,

recentering is quiet a thing, it happens with Googlemaps when you walk somewhere and you are out of track; so how do I do it?

Now, the objective here is to find the best place in the world for my objective.

Someplace I can continue growing.

And where I have the means to do it.

Somewhere I feel good.

And others feel good about it too.

So?

Well, I can apply for jobs here and there.

But I realise I need to publish more.

It is probably best to have some things out than wait for the perfect text.

So let’s get myself out there!

June 12, 2017: Taking the morning for myself

Hello dear June,

after working until midnight on my poems, I woke up with a mood; some positive thinking didn’t work wonders, so I decided to take the morning off. Just for me.

I had a sense of emergency the whole weekend. This and that and the other.

But this epiphany was enough.

I am heading towards hot chocolate, to begin with.

I am getting outside.

There is some sun, we will eventually meet.

And I might look for a hairdresser I had postponed.

Emergency or not, I want to feel good now.

June 9-10, 2017- Friday, party time, Saturday taking it easy

Hello June,

Saturday morning after a party night at a gallery. I am having coffee at 11.00, thinking how I can make the best of my day.

Probably, by taking it easy. Yesterday I finished my short-story but it seems that I am still in the rush rhythm. Or not? My body asks me to take it easy and just lie in the sun. We are lucky enough to have a sunny day in London, with a beautiful wind, let’s enjoy that!

June 4th, 2017: keep up the rhythm! 30 days writing challenge

Hello June,

here I am, deciding to write every day, and keep up with the changes in my life.

Sunday morning in London, and I have already read an article I am writing. Had coffee, yes, once a day and wondering if I can sit outside or not.

Am I going to write early in the day or later?

Let’s try both and see how it goes.

In the next month there are a series of questions to be addressed.

But most of all, we need to keep up the rhythm and feel good.

Because, after all it is summer in our hemisphere!

May 23rd, 2017- Don’t be so hard on yourself! Dance!

Hello May,

with a list of to-do things I feel overwhelmed!

How do I get back my concentration, feel good and motivation?

Dancing is the best thing so here it is, fun time because it is spring and because, we deserve it!

Be it by myself, with friends, or on the dance floor, a little dance with a few steps is enough to get me back to track!

And you know what, I start a 21 day writing challenge where I will post every day 🙂

November 19 and 20, 2016: Whatever you think, think the opposite (ladybug challenge)

Hello November,

here I am again, with a considerable amount of work, unanswered mails, a book plan pending and a group of people who thought my last presentation sucked.

How do I turn this around?

“Whatever you think, think the opposite”!

This is the advice of the day.

So I have some work I love and I am on top of it, everybody loves and admires my presentation, and what is more, I have an artistic portfolio that has substance and a book that is practically finished.

Glory and wealth awaits in the next corner, and YES, the World will be saved from itself!

June 20, 2016: Summer Solstice and being nice to oneself as a way to be effective :-)

Hello June,

summer solstice today, hey, this is great, I had some sun on my head when I went for tea today in London, but it was raining all morning. Just to cheer us up, I found this beautiful sun designed by Megan, an artist from Chicago.

By the way, I also decided the best way to deal with Mega goals is to act in a spontaneous way. I will let you know how that works. You see June, I am not good at pushing myself. I think self deserves a chocolate from time to time, a hug, a nice cup of tea and other similar things. So even if there is a list of things to be done, I will give them their time and I will take mine!
