Coming in hot

arid, clouds, daylightOkay, I actually force myself to write everyday. But, damn….time flies by pretty fast and I have the feeling, that I literally achieve nothing in my life. DAMN IT.

And I’m lazy atm.

I don’t know why, maybe it’s the heat, but I get up in the morning and wanna return to bed and sleep until I don’t feel that tired anymore. It’s hot over here. Very hot. At least,… I make myself think that it’s the heats fault, and not mine. Lol.

But the truth is, that most people have a lazy time in their lives, haven’t we? On some days, you feel so energetic, that you think you could reach anything imaginable and on some other days, you’re a huge shadow of yourself. Nothing more. I’m latter at the moment, but I keep thinking positive. I will get my energy back. I’m sure about that.

 

Cheers!

Learning by making mistakes 

Close-up of TextI have to admit, that I really make a bunch of mistakes: in writing, in art, in music. I don’t get how people work without mistakes, anyway.

As expected, you really learn a lot from your mistakes. You accept them, and get better and better. I have a great example: My first portfolio was a HUGE mess. I didn’t know what or how to set my pictures that good to make them look somehow appealing. I needed a portfolio the fastest possible way, as I had a presentation about my work. It was, well,….for me, as a perfectionist, just terrible. The people, who looked at my book, they were amazed. Don’t ask me why. I really hated this book. Everything about it. I just wanted to throw it away as soon as I returned home.

I, happily, ignored the fact that I’m gonna need a new portfolio for some month. However, a few weeks ago, I realised that it’s very important to finally made a new one. So I started. I created and did. I worked days over days, I deleted, I re-created, I cried, I laughed.

Yesterday it came to me in book form and guess what? I WAS SATISFIED. I can’t tell you how much. I saw my book and was happy. I looked into it, and the happiness was ongoing. I made something right. Yes. After hours of desperation, I finally did it. So, the moral of this story is: You totally need mistakes, or how do you think, you would get better elsewise?? Make mistakes, write wrong, play wrong, sing wrong, paint wrong. Every mistake just bring you closer to a whole. It will bring you to a feeling of “finally achieving something”. Sure, mistakes will make you cry, sometimes maybe even put shame on you. But take all those experiences and let them flow into your new work, into your better work.

Dalí once said: “No tengas miedo de la perfección, nunca la alcanzarás” or in English: “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.” and I think that’s it. (Although, in my opinion, he’s perfect. But that’s a matter of opinion, anyway. Right?)

So, with this, I wish you a happy Friday. Create things, make art, play music, write stories. Just be aware of everything and accept mistakes. Improve yourself, everyday a little bit more and be happy about it then.

Cheers!

 

How to handle Egoistic neighbours?

There is this special neighbour of mine. She’s actually a very lovely and nice young woman. Nice, at that point, that she greets me. Lol.  I never even talked to her more than three words, but anyway, she seems very kind.

But I have a particular problem with her. She’s egoistic. How do I know that, although I never really talked to her? Well, it’s all about the way, she parks her car.

Yes. That’s it.

We have a, I just call it like that now, “communal bridge” in our neighbourhood. So, when it’s heavily raining and even hailing (which it does often atm), the people, who does not have a garage (like me!) can park their cars under that mentioned bridge. Nice idea, right? But this just doesn’t work, when stated lady parks her car across the whole thing. Isn’t that weird? If you would park your car just straight to the bridge wall, three cars would have space to stand below. But, no….Lady Egoist, she (who has a carport, by the way) takes all the space. So, I really wonder myself, why she is doing that? If anyone can tell me the answer, please go for it!

I will not give up, you know? The next time, I see the friendly Señorita, I will ask her if she may not be that egoistic. But in a nice way, of course, as I’m a peace loving human being.

 

Cheers!

The time, you spend waiting

When it comes to waiting you can either be good or bad with it. 

There are people, who actually enjoy the time, while waiting on something. Maybe for an appointment or a date. Whatever. They use the time between doing things, to actually relax and enjoy. 

Doing nothing? Like, really just sitting/standing there and look around, be aware of your vicinity. 

I’m kinda more the other type. I am the one, who hates doing nothing. It really goes on my nerves. I rather sit there (as I just do at the moment) and write something. 

So, here I am, trying to pass the time until my appointment is about to begin. It’s hot over here, there are some people waiting as well, which give me the insight, that I must wait longer and longer. Gosh. 

Maybe I should start to work further on my book. I should do that now. 
Cheers! 

Learning a foreign language 

To speak more than one language (and hereby,  I mean your native languages.) is not only important, because you are able to communicate with more people, no, it’s also important because whenever you are learning something new, your brain has something to do. It works and works. You get smarter.
In our app filled time, it’s very easy to learn different languages. We have plenty of applications, that help you with that. You can sit by your breakfast and instead of checking emails or social media, try to check your language app. Believe me, this is a gorgeous way to start into the day.

 
Cheers!

The merits of walking a dog

dog-cute-pet.jpgOkay, it’s gorgeous to own a dog no matter what, but what I’ve learned today was:

People actually start talking to you and you get the opportunity to listen to many interesting stories.

Today, I walked my mother’s dog, a Border Collie, named “Holly” and I got to know some nice people, who all have one thing in common: The love for animals.

I learned about a woman, who was beaten by her parents, just because she saved dogs and gave them shelter in her home. Respect to that lady! I talked to complete strangers about how animals changed their live in a very positive way. Even I, who hates smalltalk, was kinda surprised, about how people act, when you have a dog with you. Basically, because the topic “animals” is interesting for me anway. For a short period of time, those people actually acted like they would know you since ages.

Walk with a dog is like a cloud of attention, that is hanging above your head. I’m not used to that, first of all, as I’m a cat owner: Two Thai cats, that lightening up my day, whenever I see them. But, it doesn’t really matter, which pet you have. A mouse, a rat, a snake, a cat, a cow, a pig,… whatever. Important is, that they make you happy and proud. They are like family.

So, the moral of this story is: Go and hug your pet as it’s a wonderful and precious being!

Cheers!

 

Smalltalk. No. Sorry.

marketing-man-person-communication

Most people, they talk nonsense. Let’s be honest. At least, I think so, as I’m a person, who hates smalltalk.

I see no use in that, neither I’m interested in your latest car purchase, that your child is teething or what your dog just ate for lunch. Oh, and also I’m not interested in your work,…because I think, if you are only able to speak about this, then your life really needs some change. Anyway: People will always chatter about this and you (if you try to look at least a bit socialised) need to nod, agree or disagree.

I’m almost sure that many people will say, listen to smalltalk is not a big deal or they even like it and that’s okay as well. But not for me….So, what to do, when superficial boredom conversation try to take over your good, energetic mood?

Yes…returning to your own Dreamland, as it’s much more interesting, right? I may sound rude, and I don’t even care as well, but: I’d rather stay at home and write, dream and create than go out and talk to people. Except you are same minded…Then, I could talk to you for hours. I’m wondering if other people feel the same as I do?

 

Cheers and happy Friday!

Introvert

Path

As an introvert you got some problems.

But one of those, that hold myself captive the most is: TRY to express myself, but fail deeply, as I hate to be on social media.

So, what do? I work everyday,….wheter on writing, art, music. I paint, I outline my stories, I rhyme, I compose and play piano, organ or every other instrument that grab my attention. BUT: no one, will ever see or hear that, because I’m too shy to post this somewhere. I started to think about “Self promotion” today.  I read a lot of reports and the fact that most writers are intovert/shy as well, brought me here. It is said, I should try to express my feelings in a blog and here I am now.
