April 4, 2017-Put worrying thoughts in a bottle and send them away

Hello April,

here you are again… so how do I empty my pockets and bag from the worrying thoughts which might emerge?

I see that this is the only way … what, to write a letter and put it in a bottle? And let the stream or the sea take them?

This sounds like a good idea…

I can do it in the form of questions…

I have read that those who live in the future are anxious, that would be me today,

those who live in the past can be depressed

and those who live in the present feel peace…

so, how do we prepare the future?

How do I make sure of my capacities to face any challenge?

Because I have come this far.

I have faced pretty awesome challenges.

And here I am.

Anybody has.

The future will look after itself.

And the present?

The present is a gift.

And we can share it with those we love in whichever form they are 🙂

July 28, 2015- Energy recharge

Hello dear July,

you feel it also, don’t you? When stores close down for holidays and you see people dressed in casual, summer clothes. It smells like vacation. All the most if you have been working seriously the last period. But still, what do you do for a refill of energy just before?

Here are my morning solutions:

take half the day off (if the whole day is not possible)

plan holidays imagining myself on the seaside

having a nice “pain au chocolat”

preparing to go out with friends

walking around in Paris

July 26, 2015- Traveling from home on a rainy Sunday

And here you are July,

with a rainy and rather chilly -for a summer day, I got the hint and stayed until late in bed. All I need to charge my batteries and clear my mind. It is also the best way to get rid of a tiny cold, and enjoy my home.

Home sweet home…

A place to be in peace with myself and the world.

Reading a book, or two, …

And having Skype rendezvous with friends from different parts of the world.

Traveling from home…

May 28, 2015- Me, my blog and I

Dear May,

it has been a long day full of meetings, projects, job hunting, and friends. Finally, I am glad to be in front of my computer, just to say hello to my blog and let my feelings unfold. Have you ever been to a party where you talked, had a lot to eat, drink, got tired, felt your shoes hurting you, and just wanted to get rid of them?

Sure it was great, it was fun.

And yet, it is soo good to have a moment alone, quiet, … a form of luxury… just before going to bed.

As a normally busy street late at night or… early in the morning.

Time to let the thoughts of the day evaporate slowly, to start closing your eyes… to relax.

Have a “tisane”, an herbal tea. That’s what I am going to prepare and you are welcome.

July 12-Enjoying my neigborhood

Dear July,

the rhythm of my last days was intensive enough to make me wake up at 11.00 today. I was supposed to get to the art exhibition, but found out the debriefing was not going to take place, so I could skip it.

The day started with coffee with my neighbour next door, one of my dearest friends. We had to catch up for the last few days: a lot of things have happened for both of us.

Just after, I went for lunch at my usual Saturday cafĂ©. There is something about this place that reminds me of a family’s living room. Probably because it is owned by a real family. Perfect for relaxing 🙂

I thought I should wear something colourful and flowery to give me energy, but was sleepy and all I did was to follow from time to time the conversation of a mother and daughter who were having lunch beside me. They were to participate to a baby’s baptism. There would be a dinner party after. Should the adolescent girl be seated with the children or the adults?

The next step was a meeting with another friend at another café of the same street. We sat outside, observing the passers-by. The new generation of toddlers was present, parading with their parents and their tiny scooters.

And just because it is good to get up and exercise from time to time, we went to yet a third café of the neighborhood and a found a new spot to continue the conversation.

Just by sitting there and talking, we participate to the life of the street, we remake the world, in our conversation and imagination!
