November 13, 2019- Watching “Hamilton”, in London and rediscovering passion

Hello November,

and welcome back to passion! I just watched “Hamilton”, the musical, from the front row, and I was impressed with these characters’ passion, and the actors’ game.

These people were living and dying with purpose, which is something I need in my everyday life, or I need to rediscover. There are many great purposes out there, and purposes I believe in, so it’s time to say something.

All the rest, is for people who are not lovers.

In the first sense of the word.

I also found myself in a strange place.

Being invited by someone who didn’t know what exactly he wanted.

I know what I want.

And that, is a man with passion and conviction

November 11, 2019- Happy and Creative Birthday with a Good Feeling Spa

Hello November,

hello my birthday month, I am grateful for being here, on this planet, in London, this century, in a hair salon right now!

It was about time apparently, according to a prep friend who commented that I start looking like a hippie, with two months dark racine coming out of my otherwise ginger hair.

Despite anything, it is so great to be around, and I want to make plans again, to have objectives and to go for them!

Writing a play is on the top of the list, releasing feelings that have been bottled up.

Making beautiful fireworks!

And the everyday commitments?

There is time for them also.

The most important thing is to say, hello Beautiful, maybe you made mistakes, or you run into roadblocks, you shed tears, but you also succeeded, loved, been loved, and all this adventure has been quiet inspiring!

What would I want for the next step?

A Spa of feelings, where you are receiving extra treatment for feelings, enveloped in a warm, and light, and pampering glow of LOVE!

LOVE is the best feeling SPA, and it’s like money and energy, it needs to circulate.

So, for the next step, a Good Feeling Spa, for me and all the real and virtual friends!

Brands should be smarter about "Happy Birthday" promotions.

November 1st, 2019- Beginning new adventures

Welcome November!

I went out for a walk this morning, thinking that letting go of some things makes space for new ones to come. Yes, some old and comfortable clothes with memories feel so difficult to part with, but it’s also possible to accept that we can be equally or more happy with new ones arriving.

And these new clothes might bring new aspects of ourselves, ready to express themselves out there!

I love this automne colours and the mysterious winter somewhere in the distance.

So, I am ready for new adventures, and I want to fill in my imaginary and real journal with rich experiences, love and success in growing. With many different ways to enjoy every minute.

And by thinking of long term goals and not just of day to day things to accomplish.

And art is a way of living after all, let’s put that to practice!

October 3, 2019- New job challenges in London

Dear October,

is it hard the first few days of your job? There seem to be so many things to absorb, and clients to keep satisfied, and on top of that a virus, yes, a virus!

So? What to do? I took two days off, working from home to pull myself together.

And of course, to write to my favourite journal.

Now, it seems that I don’t come out as competent and confident as a great artist and gorgeous woman that I am.

Well, maybe it helps that all my clothes for two seasons are in my suitcase, the one I brought with me to London 🙂

I decided to go through the internet for help, and start some morning affirmations.

How about reaching out to others also?

September 8, 2019- Having coffee in Notting Hill and preparing for the week to come

Hello September,

yes, I am right now in Notting Hill, London, enjoying a latte as I need this extra energy to focus and be as sharp as I can!

The next few days are demanding, and there was no spare time to visit the city. But finding myself in this spot is already great, and the sun is on my face every time a cloud moves.

This is a form of happiness. Do we need more?

Monday starts in crazy pace as I am in my new job and need to give the best impressions!

September 4, 2019- Back to London!

Dear September,

can you believe it? I am back to London, I almost pinch myself because this was not very likely the past few months. And yet, here I am, crossing the Waterloo bridge. Funny isn’t it?

For a French person, a Waterloo is a defeat or a failure, but for the British people, it’s a victory.

On either side, if you cross a defeat or failure, it’s Victory and Success that you meet.

Having the courage to go to the other side means a lot in itself.

So here I am to the victorious side of the equation, having crossed deserts and rivers, seeing both sides of the equation.

A new adventure begins!

January 28, 2019-Back to London!

Dear January,

I am to go to London for a presentation of my portfolio, and I am looking forward to it!

Of course, my feelings are like a hot boiling pot; there is my presentation to take care of and my inner self to expand: let’s go out there and shine!

Some everyday preoccupations have stressed me from time to time, but bottom line, I realize I have always managed to find my way.

I am making my suitcase and my parents’ cat is looking at me puzzled: where to?

Let’s see how it goes!

London, I am coming!

February 28, 2018- Let it snow, and keep a warm heart!

 

Hello and farewell February,

it is so beautiful to see the snowflakes fall, and the city covered in a white, … it’s magical especially when you are not used to it and… kind of makes me feel dreamy…

So, what next dear April?

Some of my friends go through existential questions, one of them has found a job in the Netherlands and he is feeling lonely, … he is Dutch but apparently, after a period of time spent in the UK, that helps to confuse oneself…

My other friend is finishing a PhD, this is wonderful, but it needs so much concentration, and she feels as if she doesn’t have time to meet anyone, because she is single… and what is more, she doesn’t know if after all this effort she’ll find a job…

So, how do we feel at home?

And if the job is important, how do we adapt and feel ok in our new environment?

I have been too job-oriented also, and security is something that I don’t know, … yet.

What makes me continue, is a sense of purpose.

I KNOW there is something I need to create and to communicate.

This helps me continue, even if the only thing which is stable, is change 🙂

So February, let it snow!

January 11, 2018-Back to London and to a faster pace ;-)

Hello January,

hello London, I am back here, with my morning coffee, and my job starting today. I love this morning time when I get a chance to dream and to plan, and to float over the rooftops.

So, here I am, and if my coffee time is here to stay, let’s see what else is going to change!

Let’s start with a Harland Miller painting because it makes me smile 🙂

December 5, 2017- Ninja day, again- or how to be precise and effective facing real estate agents

Hello December,

Tuesday already, and let’s celebrate Ninja day by being very precise and effective in whatever we have to do!

Apparently, as I find in wikipedia: “A ninja (忍者) or shinobi (忍び, “to sneak”) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare.[1] Their covert methods of waging irregular warfare were deemed dishonorable and beneath the samuraicaste, who observed strict rules about honor and combat.[2]

So, if we are inspired by the Ninja spirit, putting some parts of the role behind us, – for storytelling :-)- Ninja are deemed dishonorable because they were coming from a lower background than samurai, but they were very effective and precise.

One of the things I will try is to get back my deposit from a real estate agent in London who didn’t rent me a studio on time, and then I had to find another solution.

Let’s try to do that for now.
