Vernal Equinox – Spring

29430equinox_inner

While we enter the new season, something has been cracking inside of me. It’s going to burst out all kind of things; flowers, colours and much different stuff. It comes like the tides, with high and low moments of freedom, insight, revelations, much new information still in process of downloading.

Spring is the time of rebirth. It’s the time when the seeds are ready to bloom. We leave behind the dark and cold days to receive the fullness of life.

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!

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.

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.

Finding my way to simplicity

Image

Well hello back. It took me some time after the last post to be here and be able to write something new about me and, most of all, my quest of happiness a.k.a. ‘the search of my true self’.

It’s been now a month since I quit FB and believe me, it has been difficult for the first 3 weeks. But lately I happened to start feeling a quite unusual sensation of something called ‘freedom’.

Of course, this was related to many issues I’ve been experiencing for the last half year. Or, better be said, the last 5 years until now.

The main thing is that I’m broken. Broken hearted and money broken. I know these are tough topics just to drop here on a blog post. So I won’t go too much into details.

Anyway, by being true to myself, this quest for growth, happiness and fulfilment has been showing me other ways to feel part of something bigger, part of the world. It’s something basic to our humanity, a reflection of the way in which we are meant to live happy and creatively.

My declaration on Money, and how I learned to deal with it

TDOY_bloglovintour_graphic_500px

Money, money, money. So much written about it, and still a big topic for everybody to talk about.

I was reading everything Michelle and Jessica thought about their own idea and feelings about money, and it made me think how could I translate that into my own idea and way of dealing with it.

You see, when I started with this blog my main goal was to be helped to find a job. And although I had great advice and tips from people I still didn’t find that job I so much wanted to have.

And you may ask yourself why did I needed to have a job in the first place. And I said much about the reasons why, you can read about my quest here, but the main one was simply and only: money.

Because, not that I think money makes the world go round, but yes, money is necessary to live the life you want. At least this life. Money is necessary to pay for the things you can’t provide for yourself, can be food, a house, your bills, but also all other stuff you enjoy and is part of living a succesful life. I think money it’s such a difficult subject because we still think that it can’t replace other important stuff in our lives, such as love, friendship and compassion.

First steps: following the advice given

ImageIntroduction

When I started this challenge, on a  monday really late in the evening, exactly on the 12th March, I didn’t have in mind what was I going to achieve by sharing my experience and asking for help on social media. I had, yes,  the idea that social media could actually work for almost everything. I’m always using Facebook for the creation of events, and sharing information with a great network. That’s something that gives me lots of feedback.

But looking for a job, and being helped with that, it’s just something totally different.

So, that monday late in the evening I created this challenge as an event and placed it on my profile on Facebook, on a public mode. I must say that I’m really picky when it comes to letting people see stuff I write or post on my profile. This way it was a double challenge to expose myself, using myself as a sort of Guinea pig. What I’ve done is a real example of personal branding.

Immediately after I’ve got many messages and people commenting on the event (challenge). I was really amazed! Most of them were people I didn’t even know or met before. Some friends and contacts replied really fast, also giving me advice or tips. All ideas were welcome and I felt a bit overwhelmed. Social media really works!

I was happy with the result and really enthousiastic knowing that what I’ve had in my head was taken seriously and people do really wanted to help me.

However this great idea was, many things weren’t really clear for me, how was I going to use them all?. After a couple of days of getting messages from acquaintances and strangers I felt a bit under pressure.

Everybody was giving me their opinion and telling me what should I do. I must say I always been a really self-sufficient person, and asking for help is not something I do quite often. Although at this moment I can REALLY  use all help possible!
