getting what you want and not getting what you want could amount to the same degree of happiness. So why bother wanting something in the first place?
I wouldn’t have an answer to that. It seems that accepting things we can’t change can be also important as having the freedom to choose what we want. When our ambition is bounded or unbounded there seems to be a difference. We have the capacity to manufacture the commodity we chace when we look for experiences.
So if we make a choice let it be for other reasons than making us feel good 😉
yes, I read a philosopher who said that: the limit of our language, is the limit of our world. Isn’t that food for thought?
So, how can I expand my language, my vocabulary, my means of expression?
Poetry is one way: both writing and reading poetry.
Doing poetry, being poetry,
words, expressions, let’s use as many tools and let’s change them so that they become and we transform ourselves in the process!

Here I am again, on a quick update of my decision to wake up earlier and get more active in my daily life.
A lot of things have been accomplished: new friendships, new colleagues, mentors, windows of opportunity and finally good luck.
Things to improve?
Decision 1. I will wake up earlier than 7.30
Decision 2. More serious exercise: I have been stretching at home but I still haven’t honoured my subscription to the gym this month.
Decision 3. I do something for me, such as massage for example;
Decision 4. I become more open to real relationships with people who do the same instead of ‘profile’ relationships where you engage as part of you
Decision 5. I reach for the moon and I do everything to get there.
we are here all of us interconnected, with or without technology. We share the same planet and this becomes somehow important for everyday life in a way we might not even realize.
Especially in the morning.
When we open our eyes.
And we haven’t had yet our coffee, tea, juice, …
and we don’t know exactly where we are.
And still, this is a moment we share.
Is this giving me fuel to go on with my day?
here we are, let’s do something to better our life;
I have made it today! It was at 5.30 that I woke up, let’s see how it goes. I am slightly more alert than yesterday at the same time. Let’s see how it goes. I will post every day to check on progress.
I feel this is it, it’s time to believe in myself instead of feeling a potential hiding somewhere and beaming out from time to time.
recentering is quiet a thing, it happens with Googlemaps when you walk somewhere and you are out of track; so how do I do it?
Now, the objective here is to find the best place in the world for my objective.
Someplace I can continue growing.
And where I have the means to do it.
Somewhere I feel good.
And others feel good about it too.
Well, I can apply for jobs here and there.
But I realise I need to publish more.
It is probably best to have some things out than wait for the perfect text.
So let’s get myself out there!

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?
I set the alarm at 4.00 in the morning instead of 6.00 I meant to wake up and I ended up at 7.00; in any case, I am happy with that.
The good thing, I am much more awake at 9.00 than in the previous days, and writing. This is great I would say.
I am checking again my short story and try to refocus my strategy after a double no from two job applications.
I didn’t have my heart to it. Some haters from the Parisian world were there.
So, where to?
To my next adventure!

I am comitting to wake up an hour earlier and get to work an hour earlier also. I have been a night howl but I will check this out to see how it works.
Today I kind of succeeded but my brain is still asleep at 9.00 even if I was up at 7.00 in the morning. Not to mention the time to find simple things as my shoes and bag.
But here I am, writing.
And re-reading my short-story.
it is sunny and cloudy and windy over here; time to open my eyes and move, wouldn’t you say?
I am sitting at the café next to two men in their fifties talking business and looking 8-year-old deep down.
Or is it because I am still asleep and they are part of my dream?
In any case, I just mailed my poems back home because I am looking for another publisher.
In the meanwhile, there is a short story to finish for today.
Let’s see how it goes.
