May 23, 2016: From Paris to London

Hello May

I am packing and unpacking, after ten days spent between Rouen and Paris in France. Did I visit all the last exhibitions? Well quiet a few of them especially those of my friends. But I dedicated my last day to shopping! Yes London might be great but with my euro as currency I am faithful to Parisian shops and style. Shoes and a bag that goes with it was my priority. They should match this is the reason I walked about 15000 steps -according to my smartphone to find them 😉

But I also brought back with me a lot of feelings, between nostalgia, already six months that I have left- and happiness to find dear friends again!

I need to be more socially active here in London!

July 21- Lazy Monday in a Busy Week

Dear July,

no, I don’t mean that I have been laying in bed all day. Allthough I took a 30 minute siesta in the afternoon. What I mean is, I need superpowers for the week of my artistic event in the South of France. And shopping isn’t the first priority. But it is what I did first today.

I looked for a pair of shorts, it is going to be hot, I hope, by the seaside. In Paris, you have showered us with rain and then it was sunny again. Shorts were not needed the whole day. I left the store, but then I realized that a pair of eggplant color pants, would look great. So I returned to get them. I also looked for a small suitcase that could be suitable for flying.

I was turning from one place to another, until I found my bliss.

Shouldn’t I prepare for my own performance at the artistic event? Yes. I spent an hour with it. Not enough I am afraid.

And then, there is the next step of the project funding, but frankly, I don’t see how I can manage it before my trip.

Is it better to start with the most important thing in our list? Or the most difficult? Or the most agreeable? In order to keep oneself in a good mood?

Is it better to risk stressing up at the beginning in the middle or towards the end of a task?

How about being at ease and enjoying oneself the whole time?

I vote for this option.

 

The artistic event of July 26 should be fun for everyone, including me.

With eggplant color pants or shorts.

P.S. At least it is a color present in the fall-winter designs! Lyn Devon’s designs presented in the blog of Nina Elsa Coco

June 26- On dentists, shopping and proximity

Dear June,

yes I know: this is not a serious title for a blog that is dedicated to personal development. There is something of a disorder about it. What is the dentist’s role for example? Well, the dentist is what pushed me to shopping.

Please, be understanding! One of the nicest months of the year in terms of temperature, you can only be good-humored. I had a dentist emergency and I went to his cabinet early in the morning. But he wasn’t there. And his assistant told me she would contact me for the afternoon. This dentist gives you an appointment for the next month, so if you have an emergency you’d better stay close and try your best to be taken seriously. She finally managed to find me a place in the afternoon.

But there was no time to go in the direction of the Platform. And I needed something to lift my spirits. I spent the next three hours looking for certain items that were absolutely necessary for my summer wardrobe. And not only. Like a pair of jeans for example. I am not shopping a lot, not because I don’t want to. A question of budget. But discipline is not easy, I love fashion and living in Paris is full of temptations.

The last part of the day involved a farewell meeting with my friend who is visiting and his group of colleagues. We met quiet late, and that meant that we stayed until the last bars were closing. At 2.30 they were considering another round. I felt at ease with everybody, although I met most of them for the first time.

I realize I have a lot of friends on transit, and although this is a way for me to travel without buying a ticket, it is also good to open up to those a little bit closer. With far away friends I feel more secure. Like the case of the passenger next to you on the plane, to whom you tell the story of your life. And then you go your separate ways. Without worrying if what you just said is going to be used against you.

But defending oneself against potential dangers also keeps away some great things.

In the film “Confessions of a shopaholic”, the heroine is creating an imaginary life to protect herself from hardships. But this finally gets in the way of intimacy and relationships. The solution is to find a creative way to accept reality: by transforming it!
