Joining a new project on the go! #Augustbreak2014

theaugustbreak_red

Hi all, after my last post and almost turning the famous and fabulous 40’s, I now want to tell you about a new project I will be joining together called #AugustBreak2014.

What’s all this about? Well, remember last year I joined The Blog Lovin’ Tour from the book ‘The Declaration of You’ (from the authors: Michelle Ward and Jessica Swift)? During a whole month I was participating together with other bloggers all around the world with posts about every chapter/subject from their awesome book. And it was such a great thing to do! I have enjoyed every minute from that project, discovered lots of great blogs (such as this from Susannah Conway, creator of the AugustBreak2014 project), found a lot more about my creative self and.. many new readers started to get to know me. Was a great experience!

Now it will be a bit more different, because in this case Susannah thought about a photo project. So, every day from 1st to 31st August people all over the world will be posting pics via Instagram about certain subjects Susannah chose. I’m regularly on Instagram posting pics about my kids but also about other interesting or especial things or moments that catch my attention. I love the idea of being posting pics with a previous idea and.. Also being part of something much much bigger.

So, in behalf of this new project on the go I will be posting pics on my Instagram account (this a private account but I will be posting with the hashtag #AugustBreak2014) and automatically on my Twitter account as part of this. It’s the perfect way to start this incredible summer time and also celebrating my coming birthday in full bloom. So, I say, keep tuned and expect more posts with pics from my blog.

If you would also like to join Susannah with this amazing creative project, you can still do it clicking on this link. Have fun, enjoy, be present, smile and love.

Here is the list of themas Susannah chose, it looks great! I can’t wait to start right now! Enjoy it!

Summer is here to stay! See you soon!

Leave and let go

Knowledge-is-learning

Recently I’ve been toying with this crazy idea about leaving it all behind. Let myself explain it better.. It’s much easier said than done. When it comes to ‘leave it all behind’ this image of running away from everything what’s harming my life is the first thing it comes to my mind. But when I look around and I see how the world evolves and all the beautiful and important things my world is made of, and then I know it’s not that easy to be done. And, also, I’m not so sure that could bring any relief to the situation itself. There’s had to be another way.

Anyway, I’m stuck between my own thoughts of leaving and letting go. At this present moment everything around me seems like too much to handle. I’m broken, loveless, living in a desperate situation; nothing seems to be good enough. But wait.. There’s much more than that. I have two beautiful kids, great friends, many talents to develop  and for sure much more! It is an internal feeling that nothing lasts forever.

Escape to the future

The last weeks have been really busy back here in my small world. At this moment new projects coming my own way, new insights about love, friendship, work, dreams, children and just the rough everyday’s life. That’s what matters after all. Yours everyday’s life, what you put in your head since the moment you wake up to the moment you go back to horizontal position and (try to) sleep.
Some weeks ago sleeping was everything what I was thinking about. Yes, don’t take me wrong, sleeping like forgetting and letting go.

An artist of the floating world*

I’m happy to be back here again. It took me a long while to unfold my need to be writing again. I’ve been learning to master the art of (dis)connection and at the same time, proving myself that art was not mere an object of my passion. I’ve been under much stress, that’s true. And the fact that I feel lonely and full of energy has made me think twice how was I going to continue with my writing. Many things are happening at the same time, life evolves in mysterious ways and sometimes what we think normal isn’t like that anymore. Nothing wrong with that. There aren’t absolutes. We tend to think we are on the right path, and the following moment fall into emptiness without warning. And that’s fine. Although we may be not prepared for it.

Let’s see.. In the past months I’ve realized my writing hasn’t improved much. I’ve been too much involved with myself, my own visions of life, changing from one subject to the other. Keeping my head among the clouds, walking all the time on the same circle. In that sense I don’t see much improvement. There has been no reality check after all, no art.

Building upon who you really are

Image

Hello again there! I’m happy to be back here writing for you. I must say that since I posted all the advice I’ve been given up to now, didn’t expect it to have such great feedback! Thanks for that!

So, I’m back here, nothing has changed much since that day. Although in my own feeling and idea I have changed a lot since then. And this change its translated in different ways.

I’m not here to teach you a lesson, I don’t feel like I have the guts to say I’m that strong and powerful, but yes I feel like somebody who can use more of this good stuff dreams are made of.

Somebody asked me today if I was still looking for a job and if I was just looking for some ‘work of me‘, which means that if I’m looking for a job only about what I’m good at or which I do have much experience in it.

This is a funny question and I will tell you a bit more about it. I replied this particular person that I didn’t have a clue what ‘work of me’ means. Since I’m a writer, as I said before, not every job applies to what I am. However, I believe that every job can give me new resources and more insight on the search to my dream job.

But this insight doesn’t fall from the sky. It’s like a path you don’t know where is going to lead you. So, being a writer doesn’t mean much. It means I’m good at writing and putting words together. It means I’m a creative person. It means I like to communicate. It means I like stories to be told, stories to be true and stories to dream of.

It also means I’m quite open to talk about myself. And that I do listen to other people’s stories. It means also I like to work with texts and computers. It means I take time to digest everyday’s moments into words.
