June 20, 2018- Love and how to stay cool

Hello June,

it seems that I have a boyfriend, he is wonderful, loving, and he came out of nowhere, almost. Is he for real? It is so recent, I still pinch myself. It is too early to say.

But that doesn’t stop me for walking with a BIG smile in my face, and even if someone is pushing me at the busy London streets, I am in a very good mood and thank them.

What is he finds out I have been a struggling artist?

Or it shows in any case?

Let’s concentrate on work and stay cool.

So?

Any progress there?

Well, kind of.

I am waiting a response from a galley owner who seemed

interested.

And then?

I am putting together a hell of an art portfolio.

And I have a month to do it.

Expecting a miraculous intervention.

Because everything is possible.

So, making things happen or letting them happen and sitting back in a relaxed way?

Something in between πŸ™‚

June 7, 2018- Romance in a busy week

Hello June,

how do you know if something is a romance and not a creation of your imagination? Especially when you have an inclination for daydreaming and creating artificial realities…

And on top of that, when you are busy…

Hmm, let’s see.

The best thing is to relax and let things happen in their own rhythm I guess…

It is like waiting results from an exam.

Have I passed?

Instead of thinking about it, let’s do something else and the result will come in any case πŸ™‚

This is London romance by the way πŸ˜‰

March 12, 2018- When we are faced with a choice: ask a better question!

Dear March,

have you ever been faced with a choice? Like, which is the best way to go, this or that career, person, house, bicycle, toy, …

Probably, when we have a dilemma, it’s because we ask the question in the wrong terms. No way is exactly equivalent as another for us, and at the same time, they all lead to the same place.

So, when we are faced with a dilemma, I think that we ask the wrong question.

And we should probably take both options, or none.

And even better, ask another question!

 

 

February 5, 2018- Taking one step a day, with a deadline mid-February

Hello February,

do my dreams have to be far? Can’t they be here right now, so that I don’t have to make any effort?

In a way, they are here.

But then, new dreams come along.

That’s a way to grow.

As long as it’s not just greed πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I am in the process of writing a piece and I have a deadline.

I wake up early, but there are moments I feel stressed, I have doubts, I am tired.

And I am tired because I stress.

What do I do in this case?

  1. Chocolate – immediate satisfaction, level 100%
  2. Taking a small break (nap, drawing, walking around)
  3. Talking to a friend who seems relaxed (this is an important detail)
  4. Writing in my blog (I also have a piece of chocolate in my mouth)
  5. Going back to whatever I was doing
  6. Doing it!

January 6, 2017- High Performer for 2018

Hello January,

so here I am, with my part-time job and loads of work, desiring to be a 2018 high performer and get all the success, love and prosperity in the world.

So, I took Brendon Burchard’s survey and I got a score of 4,33 out of 5. High Performers get a 4.76 out of 5, so there are things to improve.

How do you get this score?

You answer questions related to four dimensions:

a. clarity of your purpose

b. energy

c. necessity, how urgent it is

d. productivity

e. influence towards others

f. courage

So, how do I increase these scores?

My purpose is clear, but in order to know how to, I need to ask other people and to get informed.

In order to have more energy, exercise and good quality food

Necessity, there is a maximum necessity right now

Eh, productivity, I am slow because I need other people also.

Influence, I am good, I could get better.

Courage, I have a lot, although some times I feel scared.

As a whole, it seems that were I more integrated, I would be helped more. Although I have crazy dreams also thanks to not being that integrated.

December 27, 2017-Dealing with Post-Christmas blues

Hello December,

Christmas is great for family, but going back to my childhood family as an adult makes me feel not having a family unit of my own, which is kind of lonely.

My big, medium and small love affairs have lost their breath and I find myself beautifying the past because of present boredom.

So, how do I deal with the post-Christmas blues after this?

The truth is, I have been focusing on work for a while.

Is it time to be an actor in my everyday life and not just an observer.

What is the play I want to play?

Am I the main character of my play, or just a bystander?

So, how does this work?

If you are a writer, you are an observer and a bystander, in a certain way. But being an author makes us also a creator. And we can rewrite our play.

What does my favorite play look like?

October 18, 2017- The Rules :-)

Hello October,

in the midst of chaotic events, a friend has offered me ‘The Rules’ to inspire me getting a Mr Right.

After skimming it, I decided it’s good to retain the essential: we need to respect ourselves and others will respect as then.

The same goes for jobs.

Do I feel like the best anyone could have? Do I show there is competition?

That I am an asset?

Let’s become hard to get.

I have a meeting today, I will leave early. And go to another one in the same way.

June 23, 2017-Emotions and intuition

Hello June,

Is listening to our inner voice the best thing to get ahead in life?

Is it a voice to be trusted?

How do we know it is not a voice of fear or confusion and it is something that will take us to the next step?

Well, you can guess from the results, to begin with.

Any way to escape from a pitfall?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotion#/media/File:Plutchik-wheel.svgpe a pitfall?

Hmm, from my experience it should feel good.

Meaning, like when you try a new pair of shoes and your feet feel comfortable inside, almost as if you didn’t wear any shoes at all.

At ease πŸ™‚

So what does might say for me?

That emotions can be a source of power and being hurt is the other side of being connected, and thus, powerful πŸ˜‰
