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.
It is taking shape as I go.
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.
I also run into a friend and his family.
Oh, yes, I am going to read a poem just to change.
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.
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.
here I am again! It has been a week I went to Edinburgh for an artistic project that went well. Among other things, such as the Edinburgh castle, I visited the Elephant House, one of the cafés which pride themselves to be associated to Harry Potter’s creator, J.K. Rowling.
It felt inspiring to be there with all those elephants and imagine the famous -now- author being immersed on her writing with a cup of coffee. Isn’t this lady an inspiration? Apparently she tried to make this coffee last as much as possible to stay the longer possible.
Because let’s face it, cafés are good for writers, they get to be in and outside their bubble.
