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.

July 7, 2017- Inspiration from Edinburgh and J.K. Rowlling

Hello July,

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.

In this way, inspiration comes;-)

June 25, 2017-Weekly update of success

Hello June,

Here I am again, on a quick update of my decision to wake up earlier and get more active in my daily life.

A lot of things have been accomplished: new friendships, new colleagues, mentors, windows of opportunity and finally good luck.

Things to improve?

Decision 1. I will wake up earlier than 7.30

Decision 2. More serious exercise: I have been stretching at home but I still haven’t honoured my subscription to the gym this month.

Decision 3. I do something for me, such as massage for example;

Decision 4. I become more open to real relationships with people who do the same instead of ‘profile’ relationships where you engage as part of you

Decision 5. I reach for the moon and I do everything to get there.

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 11, 2017: To change or not to change? Both

Hello June,

here I am again, thinking about the next step. You may say, maybe you need to act instead of thinking. But without any plan you get all over the place and might just be confused.

So, I feel like a misunderstood genius, what should I do about it June?

Find like-minded people and do something together?

Wait for someone to discover me?

Go out with my project/book/short-story and invite others to react to it?

Go for a massage?

All of the above?

June 8, 2017- alarm snooze at 4.00 in the morning

Hello June,

I set the alarm at 4.00 in the morning instead of 6.00 I meant to wake up and I ended up at 7.00; in any case, I am happy with that.

The good thing, I am much more awake at 9.00 than in the previous days, and writing. This is great I would say.

I am checking again my short story and try to refocus my strategy after a double no from two job applications.

I didn’t have my heart to it. Some haters from the Parisian world were there.

So, where to?

To my next adventure!

June 7, 2017- Waking up one hour earlier-writing challenge

Yes June,

I am comitting to wake up an hour earlier and get to work an hour earlier also. I have been a night howl but I will check this out to see how it works.

Today I kind of succeeded but my brain is still asleep at 9.00 even if I was up at 7.00 in the morning. Not to mention the time to find simple things as my shoes and bag.

But here I am, writing.

And re-reading my short-story.

 

June 5, 2017- Monday, Move!

Hello June,

it is sunny and cloudy and windy over here; time to open my eyes and move, wouldn’t you say?

I am sitting at the café next to two men in their fifties talking business and looking 8-year-old deep down.

Or is it because I am still asleep and they are part of my dream?

In any case, I just mailed my poems back home because I am looking for another publisher.

In the meanwhile, there is a short story to finish for today.

Let’s see how it goes.
