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 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 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.

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!
