February 5, 2018- Taking one step a day, with a deadline mid-February

Hello February,

do my dreams have to be far? Can’t they be here right now, so that I don’t have to make any effort?

In a way, they are here.

But then, new dreams come along.

That’s a way to grow.

As long as it’s not just greed 😉

Anyway, I am in the process of writing a piece and I have a deadline.

I wake up early, but there are moments I feel stressed, I have doubts, I am tired.

And I am tired because I stress.

What do I do in this case?

  1. Chocolate – immediate satisfaction, level 100%
  2. Taking a small break (nap, drawing, walking around)
  3. Talking to a friend who seems relaxed (this is an important detail)
  4. Writing in my blog (I also have a piece of chocolate in my mouth)
  5. Going back to whatever I was doing
  6. Doing it!

September 24, 2017- Relaxing and accelerating, the rhythm of life

Hello September,

there is a sense of urgency, especially when deadlines arrive and some of my friends tell me it is natural to stress. Two minutes before I was calm and relaxed, so to speak. Human beings are so open to suggestion!

So how do we communicate without adopting the other person’s mood? Without allowing it to rock our boat?

More, if we see ourselves as a boat, we don’t mind some waves. Boats are made to be able to find their balance again.

Waves are their friends.

We can rock a little bit, sympathetic to the movement.

But we will go back, finding our balance.

It is like relaxing and accelerating.

There is time for relaxation.

And time to speed up.

Alternating wisely between the two is the best thing to do.

Between breathing in and out.

Between sleeping and running.

Between busy Monday Mornings and relaxed Monday evenings.
