I forget – Daily Lesson – Jan 4th 2014

Sometimes I forget. And I have to be ok with that.

Last night I forgot to write down my lesson. Today I forgot to reply to an email. I forget, and I need to set up triggers that help me remember. But even then, sometimes I wills still forget.

How much do You forget and how can You help yourself to forget less?

Conversations are important – Daily Lesson – Jan 3rd 2014

So, one thing is that I didn’t write this the night of the 3rd. But writing it now the morning of the 4th. So in a way that is a teaching in itself.

The real lesson on friday the 3rd was that conversation and open communication is always important to make people feel safe, mostly when we are talking about couples.

Lately my girlfriend and I have started the conversation of moving in together, And sure, it is a very big step forward, and there are many things that need to be considered. And it obviously makes both of us a little nervous.

And last night we had the chance to talk, and to exchange concerns, potential solutions and ideas, as well as go over certain disagreements.

Sure we didn’t solve all the problems, but we now know more about each other, and about what each others expectations are.

It’s very easy to just go about life assuming what other people feel about us or themselves, but I think we would all be better off if we would take a few minutes and actually ask about it.

I learned that last night.

Leaning back – Daily Lesson – Jan 2nd 2014

Today I went back to a job that I hoped not having to go back to ever. People are great, but it’s an employee position… A year later.

I have done it before. When the freelancing wasn’t coming my way I reached out to the restaurant where I worked at for two and a half years right after the production my movie subHysteria. And I worked there for a few months. And it helped me pick up my pieces and get back up.

So today I learned that it’s not too bad to take a step back for a second, and to lean in passed resources. It is not easy, it is not fun, but it makes You value what You can do. It is a realization of how life is a dance, and You are sometimes going forwards, backwards and side to side, at different rhythms.

Let’s dance life! I can go at it all night long!

Not hungover is more productive – Daily Lesson – Jan 1st 2014

Today is Jan 1st.

I have to admit, the past several New Years, I have spent in my room, avoiding the sun, and recovering from the night/morning before.

It’s what you are supposed to do in New Years eve, go out, drink as much as you possibly can without passing out.

Last night, like the last several months, I decided that I was not going to drink. That I can still have a blast without having to even get a little buzzed.

The best part of all, was waking up today feeling completely fresh, and truly ready and in shape to start the year.

Sure, most of this “resolutions” will probably not go farther than the second week of february, but today has been the most productive beginning of the year ever, and it is all because last night I stayed away from the bar.

For me a sprite please.

Daily Lessons in 2014

It is said that every day we learn something new. It is probably true. But rarely we actually digest our daily lessons, so it just stays in the unconscious where it is not easily accessible.

I am taking on this year to write down everyday something new I have learned, done, realized, every day, so by Jan 1st 2015 I will have learned and recorded 365 lessons.

Why am I doing this? I read recently something that said: 2014 will be 365 days with infinite potential. I decided to add a layer of intention to all that potential. The added intention to this potential will make my mind look for patterns of  learning something though my experience in life.

I will take every day at least 5 minutes to write down, or make a video, or a piece of audio speaking about something new that I have learned, done or realized that day.

I bet some daily lessons learned will be awesome cool tips like a little lifehack or a quick kitchen tip. But I also expect lessons that could be more painful to deal with, life lessons that could drastically change the course of my life, things about me that I might not really like to see or realize. Who knows what it could be! After all, it’s INFINITE POTENTIAL we are talking about.¬†Right?!

It’s gonna be a trip!
