February 23, 2018- Looking forward to spring, High on Hope :-)

Hello February,

yes, I am close to … nearly … there. Spring is one step from the door. And you are bringing us the last winter snow apparently, in London.

So, I start with a Harland Miller painting, he has become one of my favorites in the UK, and I start the day with a lazy pace. It has been quiet a week again!

Very demanding, since I had to balance some of the things which were out of balance in the last month, during my obsession with a project…

February 18, 2018- How to reload our brain after huge effort

Hello February,

yes, I met my deadline, it was a race against the clock, but I DID it!

What happens next?

I feel slow, sleepy and low energy. Too good its the weekend 🙂

So, how do we reload our brains?

Any ideas?

I found a web site which gives a lot of suggestions, I will take a trial and see how it goes. How about feelings, affection and connexion? Let’s take it one step at a time… 😉

February 12, 2018- Emailing myself to sleep ;-)

Hello February,

how is it possible that tasks multiply when you are approaching a deadline? But so do people who help, appearing out of the blue!

Things change, but somehow, I have an irrational feeling it’s going to be fine!

For the time being, it’s practically midnight and I have another email to send 🙂

Or two, I will also email myself to go to sleep!

February 10, 2018- Starting the week with energy and focus

Hello February,

to begin with, I need to go to the supermarket and get some vegetables and fruits. As healthy food as possible!

Decide if I will go to my work’s gym or close to home and just get enrolled!

What else?

Breathe?

Eh, decide about my future self?

I could be less associal, and let some people in to my life. Focusing on work is nice, but still, it’s a bit lonely.

I have a sense of direction, goals to achieve, but why do I stress up in the middle and doubt myself? Why even think about myself in the middle of action?

Three skills I need to develop. What about not being stressed in the middle of a challenge? I might have more in the future if i take up responsibilities.

Concentrating easily to finish my writing? Use deadlines?

Anticipate positive social interactions?

February 7, 2018- In touch with our intuition- let’s have a cup of tea!

Hello dear February,

after an all work and no play period, I feel kind of cold and with a lot of unsatisfied others around me. And yet, is there a way to take me for a treat?

There must be something. I should probably trust, and let things come to me.

Yogi tea said so, when I opened one fo the little envelopes:

So, let’s take a cup of Yogi tea and forgive myself and others, for not being perfect:

Let’s get crazy instead.

It’s still winter, but St Valentine is near by.

Let’s have faith in love,

Love conquers all!

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 😉

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!

February 3, 2018- Saturday morning and my brain needs to wake up

Hello dear February,

it’s 7.45 and I have been up since 6 am. Next to me at the café, a guy is eating a huge quantity of French toast, omelette and I wonder how this could be possible. I can hardly ship a cup of coffee at this time.

Other people also talk and they make sense at this time. My parents always impressed me in that sense.

I can hardly make any conversation.

But still, but still, I need to wake up my brain.

And continue my writing.

With something intelligible, that my wake up brain will still like a few hours later.

February 3, 2018- Finding the best outfit for the day :-)

Hello February,

have you ever been preoccupied about what to wear? It depends of the day, I guess, and of the clothes, and of the mood…

I just couldn’t match a sweater with the rest, and somehow it took me half an hour…

on the other side, it is a present, so I am happy I got people to think of me … eh, … or this is a sign I need to spent some time looking for something fit to my taste… and means…

Finally I got a match…

Is this a reason to make my mood good or not?

An outfit is us, but it is also, our presentation to the world.

Do we need to care?

Yes, but when I feel good about me, I will see it as a game…

 

January 15, 2017- Monday, Motivation and our life-draft :-)

Hello January,

hello winter Monday, and let’s have a great week ahead!

I have a great conversation with my blog-friend David, who tells me that it’s possible to develop our talents and to live a life of self and global development, in great relationships.

How to?

Let’s start by asking good questions.

Do I feel fine right now?

I had a nice coffee, but the place is kind of humid and I start feeling uncomfortable.

So, let’s finish this blog post and go for a green smoothie and wash my hair … finally.

I am trying a new tool this week, Designing your Life, suggesting that it’s essential to start from where we are, and then build prototypes to get there and try them.

In every possible direction.

A friend of mine told me relationships are like that. You have to write a draft first, until you finally get it right.

And to keep in mind, this is still a draft.

Maybe life on earth is a draft.

Let’s make it the best draft possible!
