September 18, 2018- How to bounce back big in 30 days, day 1

Hello September,

I am back to London after a home town stay to face issues from all over: parents health, job, money, debt etc. So, how do I bounce back and stay on top of things?

I breathe.

After breathing, I look for advice.

All the people I know and I ever met.

One by one.

I also read it’s handy to have a precise story about myself, something like a condensed CV with where I want to go.

And precise question for mentors

Let’s see how it goes

Will I write every day for 30 days?

I will bet with myself

And I also offer two reading suggestions

I also decided to help someone with advice, I am actually quiet good with chaotic situations 🙂

June 6, 2017-First words, first chapter

Dear June,

is it an easy task to get somewhere else from the position you were born to? Well, if you are a tree, not much. If you are a month, neither. If you are June and you want to play December, actually it is possible, all you have to do is to change hemisphere.

So even months have a chance.

How about humans?

Are we responsible for the rain and the sunny weather, for the hurricanes, floods and tempests?

Apparently, we become more and more so.

Not only individually.

But all together, because one action I take today, is magnified if others take it too.

In that sense, how can we change things?

We can give the example.

And then maybe, tell someone else.

And make an argument.

Maybe this will create two of us.

Or maybe we will change our minds and actions together.

So, today, even if I am not responsible for the fate of the world right now, I can take some action individually.

And as a second step, I am looking for another person.

Just one for now 🙂

May 29, 2018- Loving who we become

Hello May,

are you always the same or do you notice any change in you as time goes by? And I am not talking about growing up, or aging, but about the changes in the way we see things and the way other people see us.

After all, is it possible to grow without changing?

And what type of change are we talking about?

I am talking about the caterpillar to butterfly change.

Is it possible in any stage in life and any age?

Well yes, if we talk about personal development, shining, glow related to being balanced, loving and caring to ourselves and others.

I am having my morning coffee and a waitress agreed I need to go to the hairdresser.

Yes, I know.

Is this the reason I might have less dates?

Would I want a date who only cares of my hair?

How about my gorgeous smile and body?

How superficial are we after all?

Ok, let’s say that taking care of ourselves is a first sign that we respect ourselves.

But shouldn’t this start internally?

Appearance of confidence and taking care of oneself are appealing, but the REAL thing is so much more valuable!

I see people who only have the appearance, to be willing to give up their money in order to get the feeling of it.

But is the internal thing enough to get around if your hair starts looking like a bird’s nest?

All this comes from having a partial rejection from a man I had a drink with.

Well, meeting people is nice, but doing it from our “home”.

When I am in my center, I feel balanced, and my connexions might be.

November 24, 2017-Studio or one bedroom flat?

Dear November,

it seems that I have found a new place: there is a studio I have flirted with, but now I also like a small one bed. flat. Almost the same square meters, the first is close to a park and the canal, the second close to a market and nice cafés. Similar in terms of price.

I also need to move out asap, but I want to go somewhere I really like, not just take the first thing, no matter what.

Any thoughts?

P.S. They don’t look exaclty like that, at least… not yet 🙂

September 27, 2017- A new beginning

Hello September,

I said goodbye to the gallery I was working part-time yesterday. It was something expected, but I was hoping to stay for another month, the time to figure things out for me.

But the essential thing is to be somewhere I can shine not just linger.

London, should I stay or should I go?

I have plans and goals.

I have jumped in the unknown when I came here from Paris.

The essential thing is the purpose.

And the purpose is to create in the best conditions, in the way that will benefit others also.

So, I need to be open.

To begin with, I will contact everybody I know for information.

And those I don’t know also.

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?

April 1rst, 2017: 3 Year Blog-Anniversary!

Dear April,

it has been three years since I decided to start a blogging adventure, as a form of a diary, addressing myself to the different months. I was living in Paris at the time, and I had to face a into my face wannabee boss and my unfullfieled artistic and love drives. I meant to write every day.

Ever since, a lot of things have changed.

I am in London.

I have published my first novel (to be translated in English soon).

My heart is still attached to Paris, but I am happy to have started new adventures here.

I would like to thank so much all of the friends who have accompanied me and offered feedback all these years.

Your advice has been valuable!

More precisely I would like to thank some of my oldest friends, but also those I havent’t mentioned with their wise comments:

March 31, 2017- Spring rolling ;-)

Hey March,

thanks for the great moments and for bringing Spring again; the trees on flower, the bees, and the rest of nature falling in love, how can you resist this powerful urge?

Do you realize I am one step away from my 3 year blog-anniversary?

So, a time to update and see what has been accomplished, and new goals for the future.

I started with the idea I needed to change something in my circumstances. I understood I start from changing myself.

And here I am today.

Still on the road but with major changes and some for the best. From Paris to London.

May 16, 2016: “à Paris” again!

Et oui dear May,

I am in Paris again! It almost took me two months to visit again the dear city where I have spent most of my adult life… and I have a lot of emotions to walk on my street and feel as if I had never moved!

But things have also changed and a lot of things happened in the six months of my absence, not all of them good. But still, and despite a weather which is windy and cloudy, it is May in Paris!

I already met with two of my best friends and now, since it is a holiday in France, I linger in one of my Paris headquarter cafés; with my computer.

Lots of great ideas came to me as I was letting my mind wander, but my working space was kind of reactive to my ideas and I had felt stuck.

I am happy to be here for a week? Yes for sure. Am I happy to have left for London? Yes definitely. We will see what the future holds.

Because it is nice to creat habits, and even nicer to change them!

April 20, 2016: Post day 7- how to define a strategy

Dear April,

a small change I can try today is how to learn from feedback without letting it throw me off-balance. Yesterday I invited an artist to participate in an event I will organize back to France. He told me the gallery is not good enough for him and he wouldn’t know of anyone who would be interested. From his acquaintances.

That kind of shook me because it triggered older insecurities. I believed in this project and I mean to go back to Paris to talk with the gallery people. This idea of hierarchy somehow made me sad.

Is he right? Should I try to connect to the places/people with the best possible reputation instead of going the other-way round? Meaning, instead of collaborating with those I like and whose work I appreciate without checking on their reputation?

My former way of doing things has not been very productive from a material point of view. But starting from the utility of people and things is not in my philosophy.

Coming to London, is an opportunity because I have connected to a lively artistic platform with a good “reputation”: How can I evolve from here in a way that I am in harmony with my values in life?
