Hello there, again, it’s been a while. I like to take these moments to sit back and write down what has been happening in my life recently, as basic as it may seem. When you are in the moment, all you see are the next items on the to do list or the next “jour J” as they call it here, an endless loop of due dates and deadlines. But when I sit down to take a moment, reflect, it’s all in one a different feeling. Like it all hits you at once. These moments are oh so necessary to reevaluate my current situation and to define whether, how or what to do next. More and more, and I cannot stress this enough, I believe in staying in motion, never staying stuck in either praise or criticism and looking for that constructive piece of information. However, every once in a while, taking that thinking breath feels oh so refreshing.
Our lovely charity photo book project
Yesterday, we finally got to see our pre-print photo book sample, the one we had been working on for the past couple of months. We took the risk, so to speak, and did something different. On our own. Independently. From scratch. And to see it all come together, to the point where the final edition print will be launched for next week – I cannot put this feeling into words. We’ve had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, hear the most amazing stories and portray them. And all of the revenue will go to charity. There are still a few small details to coordinate, but to see it all come together – I cannot put it into words.
I sincerely believe that if you truly set your intention on something, are passionate and keep your eyes open, opportunities will arise in the most unexpected of ways, which can be surprisingly fun. But you have to be proactive. Go out there. Take the leap. At worst they’ll say no – the first time. I just feel like the “if” is too big a burden to carry around so I’d rather take the risk. And what became of trying again? What is it with this culture of “I tried but no” – so you try again. You take constructive criticism as a gift, learn, grow and try again. As Karin Bohn said, it’s a marathon not a sprint. Even though I’ve said it before, all the little steps add up in the end.
And all in all
I cannot believe we had our project presentation yesterday – time really has gone by so quickly. In less than two weeks, I will be going to Paris for a summer university I cannot wait for and then… home for the summer! I’ve just learned to live with the fact that life is chaotic and the “now we can be at peace at last” moments are only, well, moments. And that makes them all the more valuable. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Adventures and everything – making every day count as “over said and heard” as it sounds.
Sometimes all of this can become a little too much. There is no one answer that suits everyone – different problems require different solutions. BetterHelp is well aware of the matter and has offered a solution – click here to find out more.
