October 19, 2016: Monday Motivation

Hello, October,

how do I face challenges and stay on top of things? Looking and feeling relaxed, good-humoured and smiling? Do you have any tips?

What if someone is into my face, for example, criticising my work? Or someone else is judging my lifestyle as not being enough of something or too much of something else?

Do I know what the … am I doing? I always doubt a little bit. Is this good enough?

Actually, sometimes it can get better.

But this is not a reason for not loving what there is. Right here, right now.

And having some doubts is also willing to grow.

But I know I am a Champion. And it is by accepting small imbalances that we keep up going…

May 30- divorced fathers

Hello May,

Yes, I only sent a funding application at 2.00 in the morning. I know I could have done it earlier, but I preferred to go out with two old friends for a drink. One of them is a divorced father, with a two year old daughter. We all met during our studies, and each has taken a different path in life. But we still love each other and get together from time to time to catch up.

We were surprised to hear that his relationship ended so soon and that they are not in good terms. As an observer, I find it hard to believe that it is possible to separate so soon after the decision to have a child.

But this is also the case of B who has a 4 year old also adorable kid. Is it the change in their lives? Is it the responsibilities that put the relationship under pressure?

I have no idea, at least our friend couldn’t explain the reasons that brought them to it, other than the change in his wife’s personality from the moment she became a mother.

Since I haven’t been close to the couple, I have absolutely no opinion, and no idea how this change can affect a couple. After all, I only have my friend’s version. And the most important thing, if it is final, is to find the best way to communicate for their child’s sake.

On the other hand, the discussion put me into thoughts concerning B, the object of my affection. Is a divorced father a species ready for a new relationship? Or is he someone who is looking for some form of distraction? Is it a particular species, or each one has his own characteristics?

I have to admit anyway, that for me, B’s charm is related to his role as a father, and the way he cares for his child.

This is enough to make him attractive.
