It’s Monday, it’s raining in London, and I feel I have been running behind goals, deadlines, etc. People expect things from me, I expect things from myself, and on top of that, I got to face a mini-virus.
Yes, starting something new is exciting, but it can also be stressful.
I am by my old gallery today, a powerful platform that gives me mixed feelings. I have had some hard times here and my self esteem has been tested.
But a platform also involves human beings that I like and appreciate. I have a small project with them.
Instead of thinking of whatever has been hurtful, let’s concentrate on what is inspiring right now.
Am I going to places for an external glow of power? This is meaningless, and it soon involves disappointments. On the other side, if it is to see it as a platform for meeting people and doing something together, then, it makes sense.
But it’s time I value myself more, my time, and the exposure to situations that are not bringing anything to my or anybody else’s growth.
So, farewell to anything that doesn’t serve this purpose!
And use difficult roads as fuel for our future growth!
you find me at the café of my hometown, in the South of France where I focus on my writing. And I also mail job applications. I have come to the conclusion that my publishing pace needs to get faster and my focus deeper.
How about the everyday issues that appear and try to get my attention?
Hmm, probably fix one hour a day to deal with them.
did you know that apparently, lucky people have an open mind and are ready to see the unexpected? “Luck may not so much be luck, but whether or not our mindset leaves us open to opportunities we would otherwise miss because we’re so absolutely sure of what we want”.
Ok, so how about being focused and finishing a task?
Can you do both?
Probably when you focus on an objective, but not on the specific way this objective should come into shape.
For example, let’s say you want to marry a sexy, gorgeous, rich and young man. Crazy in love with you etc.
You shouldn’t start saying that he should also have brown hair and blue eyes, and work in the film industry. Or say that you should only meet him through acquaintances. Or object to the fact that he has three cats and two dogs. And two kids from a former union.
The same thing with a job.
If the main objective is something inspiring, some flexibility is needed, I guess regarding the details. As to where on earth. For example.
a Sunday morning in London, and I am already out after a walk and some breathing exercises. How do acrobats find balance? They are focused and breathe correctly, I guess.
We are also acrobats in life. We need balance and movement, focus and concentration. Fear is only useful to make us act. But if we are already moving, it could get on the way. A small amount of anything is good if it isn’t too much of it.
Have you seen these people wearing virtual reality devices who think they are walking close to the edge of a high building whereas they are sitting on a couch all the way?
We don’t need that.
We need a sense of urgency in a constructive way.
There is a bridge and we will walk this bridge to the next step, towards the realisation of ourselves and our deepest desires.
So let’s breath in, breath out and find our balance in mouvement!
