I woke up early as promised, although I have gone for coffee only at 8.00. I am to go to a gallery opening later in the day, and to stay up for the reception and drinks that will follow.
I realize I don’t have anything to wear and somehow all my clothes need something to make them fit together and look in their best for fall 2017!
Does it matter after all how stylish I look?
Well this is the art world, but I am not into fashion.
After all, I am the artist.
I can go as I want.
As long as I have fun with it.
How am I going to respect my inner wild child if I try to conform?
My inner wild child is asking for more fun.
And no emergency is capable of taking away this.
Having fun NOW, not tomorrow, or another day.
Isn’t it risky to have fun at the reception while I am looking for a job?
Yes, but in any case, I am not going for the kind of jobs where too much formality is demanded.
At least not in the conventional form 😉
the busy or the empty café for the morning?
If I go to the empty and I fill sleepy, I might continue on the same mood.
If I go to the busy, there is not much work to be done because people are buzzing around.
I chose the busy.
And here I am, writing my post with numerous people passing by, in and out.
I have promised myself to focus and be alert to all the opportunities that will come my way.
Let’s be busy in a meaningful way.
Not agitating myself, but doing.
So, here I am September,
with a good sign in the horizon. A gallery has asked me to come by and discuss a collaboration together. It is not probably THE dream job, but it is great they have given me a sign. And I will prepare well, because you never know, maybe I will like these people and it will transform into something great.
In any case, it is for next week.
This is great, I just need to keep my energy level high and at the same time to take a good rest.
How do I avoid little practical things and annoyances to get in the way of my mood?
I ignore them and focus on the objective.
What is the most important thing right now?
Yes, I will no longer run and hide, I will get out there and find who would like to join in and work on a collective art project with me!
September first, I feel it’s time to take a chance and jump in.
To begin with, I am going to ask for help.
Here I am, with an idea. Or lots of ideas.
How can they become reality?
With other people’s help. People who would join, transform and contribute to them.
Am I afraid of people who don’t like me on my field?
Yes, but it is time to go and find some others.
There is no time for false modesty here.
Let’s go and have this project happen!
London seems less crowded than usual, and I started the day on a holiday mood, meaning, I watched pictures of remote islands on my computer screne.
Now, since I am not there yet, I need to pull myself together and see how I will make the best of this month.
I have advanced a lot in July, but there isn’t anything tangible yet.
Should I try to forget myself in daily reveries, drink and use other abusive substances, (i.e. chocolate)?
Or should I take a different perspective and try again?
I will take the second option.
The positive thing is I got some feedback in July, so I can modify my profile to put into advantage my best aspects.
And a glass of wine could also help, especially if it is shared with friends 😉
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.
