Why You Will Fail to Have a Great Career

12 Nov

I came across this video on the Numerology for Smart People blog and found myself shedding a tear or two in astonishment. Inspiring, touching and so so TRUE.

Listening to Signs

7 Oct

Should I learn Italian or Spanish? I ask myself.

I love Italian and have already started learning it, but Spanish is much more widely spoken and (therefore?) more useful.

I take an Angel Card.

Ear Chakras: Notice messages that appear as sounds, music, and words, from both external sources and within your mind. These messages are real answers to your prayers.

A few weeks later: I step onto a bus and have the impression of stepping into Italy – the bus is jam-packed with young Italian students, who are all chatting and joking in Italian. I remember the Angel card.

I book an Italian lesson. As I am arranging the lesson with my teacher over the phone, a smile spreads across my face and energy pumps at a crazy pace around my body. I feel like running to the nearest bookshop to buy Italian books and start practicing right here, right now.

I am so excited about taking Italian lessons again and am filled with joy as I think about continuing learning this beautiful language.

How would I have felt had I booked a Spanish lesson instead? I would have felt frustrated and bored, because I would only have picked Spanish because “it is useful”, “it could help my career”, “it is a more logical option”. My heart would not have been in it.

I suddenly understand what Louise Hay meant when she wrote:

I nourish myself by saying no when I mean no, and yes when I mean yes. I know what I want.

4 May

It’s been two months since my last post!

I took a brief break from creative activity, hoping that some time without writing could help me understand the next steps to take in my writing path. However, all but one question were left unanswered; the only thing that I realised in these past two months is that I can’t live without writing – it is as much a part of my life as breathing. Even if I’m not writing, I’m constantly thinking about writing. Everything I experience in the world around me goes into an idea bank, from which I withdraw a precious currency called Words – it is Words that make my world go round.

I am happy and excited to be blogging once more – I have missed sharing with you, fellow bloggers, and can’t wait to catch up with your posts.

Hope the sun shines on you this week-end!
