February 18, 2016: day 21 out of 60 day challenge- should I trust my feelings?

Hello February,

should I trust my emotions regarding a person, or my head? Or just give more time? I refer to people of course, potential love interests, friends, colleagues…

Sometimes people might seem nice and we start hanging around. Then there is an uneasy feeling about something. I say, may be I was picky that day. Then I find this feeling again. If this person doesn’t make me feel good should I withdraw? Where did the likeability go?

Is there something in the recipe which is not so good or should we try again?

You see, in London, I don’t know so many people, so I jump at the opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances. But spending time with just anybody, might not be the best thing for either.

We should make each other feel good most of the time no?

What would you say?

July 3rd, 2015- Friendship and Confidence

Hello hot July,

I am at the same Parisian café where I used to go in February, for very different reasons:  it was warm when it was cold outside, it is fresh when the temperatures outside rise. Love and in general friendship acts in this way.

Like a balm, for the soul and even the body. How do we recognize people who are our harbor? How do we become a harbor for others, and also for ourself?

Confidence, is something important. It includes among other things, faith. We have faith when we open the door to someone else, or when we get in someone else’s home. Faith that this person is a safe place.

And when it isn’t? What if our expectations are not met, our love is not bestowed on someone who is loving us back or our trust is not honoured?

Then again, we are lucky to have learnt, felt, and made on our way to the next harbor. Because we also like adventure, and because the sun rises every morning even after the darkest night 🙂

In Istanbul, I met wonderful people, reunited with some old friends and love crush, I made new friends. My trust was tested, my intuition also.

Trust and love have won.

March 26- Looking for sunshine on a cloudy day

Hello dear March,

I don’t know how to say it, but the day started cloudy and rainy, with some results that didn’t go in the direction of my wishes. I had some “inside” information that my project will not be chosen for funding.

Now, I still need to see what was said about it from the people who are taking the decisions. Just to help me see if it is something I can learn and try again, or not. Right now I am not sure what to think.

Am I unreasonable to try in the same direction? Well, it depends to who I ask the question to.

I will ask it to people I respect, and who know how this system works, to help me see more clearly.

But after this, I needed something agreeable to think, so I went to FNAC, the culture department store in France, where you find from books, music, to computers, … theater tickets…

I was looking around and fell into someone I have briefly met in the past. He gave me a precious information. Where I can find a person who might help me understand what is going on with my artistic endeavors.

That was a sunbeam that brightened my day.

And the presence of an American writer, who happened to talk about his work at the moment I was there:

Michael Connelly.

I liked something he said on his writing style.

He doesn’t make a plan, he starts and then lets the story guide him. (Maybe he has an idea of an ending he is looking for, a sort of goal).

But he couldn’t tell us about all the steps.

I might learn something from this technique and apply it to my life.

I know I have a purpose.

It’s ok if I don’t see all the steps from where I stand right now.

I can trust and be comfortable with the unknown.
