March 5, 2018- Making a Choice to be Strong

Hello March,

You arrived covered in snow, and I am just opening up reluctantly, as I am someone from the South, not used to these temperatures!

I need a Miracle, and loads of Good Luck, because clearly, the task I have seems Herculean; and I feel ready to hibernate instead of going faster and becoming more effective…

So, what is your advice?

Go and enroll to the gym?

Yes, ok.

Anything else?

Go kiss someone

Like who?

Get out in the street and kiss the first person?

Yes, why not?

Do something spontaneous and crazy

I am doing that most of the time, and then I am afraid of the consequences.

Yes but doesn’t it feel good?

It does; so I will…

What if I puss away the people around me?

You will make space for others who are closer to you

Ok, how about going to the hairdresser?

That would do…

I would like to be in touch with other creative people

Then what are you waiting for?

How about reinforcing your strengths instead of working on your weaknesses?

That’s a good point…

It could take less time…

How about getting yourself a prize?

And helping out someone else?

Thanks March, that seems helpful 🙂

February 20, 2018-Taking the Wheel in our life

Hello dear February,

still feeling a bit slower, and with different emergencies pressing, I decided to start by living in the moment, and that it is time I take the wheel… of my life!

Where does that lead, and where am I positioned in terms of the wheel of fortune?

In other words, am I a good driver, or should I leave things lead me wherever day by day?

I always wanted to drive, and I still don’t have a car, but in a city like London, this is maybe something not urgent, especially if you are trained the other way… the continental way!

Probably the best is to take the wheel AND to also have my eyes open to the signs on the road, and to be alert on the situation of the car…

Because our control is real but also, an interaction with outside factors.

Better be alert to all of them, and be open to guidance also 😉

December 31, 2017-Ready for a 2017 Year in Review?

Hello December,

the year is close to an end – and it’s time for a review, without letting the food and desert debaucheries weaken my critical judgement.

How do I have fun in a creative way?

Probably, by doing things with people who appreciate and love me, even if it’s just one person. And I’d better be one of them. People I also love and appreciate.

Starting with ourselves, giving some love and appreciation for whatever we have accomplished, tried, failed, imagined, … is the first step I guess.

There is always better and higher.

But don’t we deserve a WELL DONE, for our efforts, struggles and for just being around?

 

September 17, 2017-Old and New decisions- Confidence boost

Hello September,

sometimes insecurities can make us embrace other people’s values, I listened to Natalie Portman say, and this comment goes home!

So how do we leave behind in-securities and go do whatever we want to?

I see in front of me a handsome guy whose nervousness make him less attractive. So why doesn’t he just relax?

Why would I do the same?

I have a project, and I have a purpose.

I am going to wake up earlier.

And write every morning, even a small note.

It is important to own my meaning.

And to congratulate ourselves for doing this.

So today, I have some writing, but I will also take care of my home, clothes, and do things I love.

March 9, 2017- How to make a mistake and still feel confident :-)

 

Hello there March,

I had a discussion with a friend yesterday about making mistakes and still feeling Great! It is a bit challenging to realise you did something “stupid” and still feel so intelligent and on top of things.

My friend told me she is a pessimist, but she goes about with a huge smile. So different perspectives could work differently for different people. I proclaimed myself an optimist, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling messed up sometimes.

And then what?

Is there a way to fix things?

And to boost self-confidence?

Here are some ideas I found:
