Running into emptiness in search of my true self

Escape to the future

Image

The last weeks have been really busy back here in my small world. At this moment new projects coming my own way, new insights about love, friendship, work, dreams, children and just the rough everyday’s life. That’s what matters after all. Yours everyday’s life, what you put in your head since the moment you wake up to the moment you go back to horizontal position and (try to) sleep.
Some weeks ago sleeping was everything what I was thinking about. Yes, don’t take me wrong, sleeping like forgetting and letting go.

The space between

Lately I’m in a poor mood for writing. It has been weeks, almost months since I came up with new ideas, new thoughts to pour down into this blog.

As a writer & blogger, the way I like to call myself, I feel the urgency of writing almost 24 hours a day. But lately, life has been unfolding into deep waves of solitude and I’m longing for quietness more and more.

Today the day I decide to write again for you out there, reaching out my hands in an attempt to fulfil my loneliness. Keeping track of what makes me feel alive. Writing. As pure as it is. Writing, because my words can stay hollow in the deepest seas but they’re still here to end my suffering.

An artist of the floating world*

image111

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.

The art of (dis) connection

Image

Hello and welcome back to my long forgotten blog. It’s been really a long time since I wrote for the last time in English. And it’s a pity, I know, with so many people who were reading it in the first place, and also many of my friends and acquaintances who can’t read Spanish.. because, of course, I continued writing in Spanish in these last two months.

Reconnecting with you out there

Two months ago I was heading towards Buenos Aires, Argentina, my hometown and country. As many of you have been reading the last months, I was going under much stress at home, not only because of the lack of job, also the personal issues I’ve been trying to master on my own.

So, it was such a relief to have the opportunity to board a plane and go away for some time. It was really useful. And necessary.

But here I am, back to basics. I’ve been already for some time toying with the idea of writing again here for you. Why did I take my time? I sort of promised  to write an article about the whole trip. I even thought to include all the juicy details about how low budget possible that was to be done in such a beautiful city as Buenos Aires.

Girl, the places you’ll go

Image

I said I wasn’t sure to be back here, but now that my suitcases are almost done and prepared for the big day I thought to drop by and say hello.

Not a just plain hello, but some things I wanted to tell.

In my last post I was telling you how life was since I didn’t have any FB action. And indeed, although it was a bit weird not to be part of it, it was ok.

Well, then, this last 22 October I decided to reactivate the account. I realized now that it had been 2 months, and that looked like an ok time to say hello again.

I was having this odd feeling that life was happening somewhere else than where I was. Almost everything seems to be happening on FB nowadays. Constantly we’re shown to see almost all companies and brands having their own FB page, parties are thrown up, people exchanging messages and important data rather than sending an email, or giving a call. Not to mention the fact that it can get even worse, not seeing each other’s faces personally.

I was having this awful idea of not belonging to anywhere anymore. And for that reason and because now I’m travelling back to homeland Argentina, thought the time was ripe to be joining this boat.

Back to basics & (why not?) from bitter to better

3422Well, hello there again, It’s been quite a long time since my last post.

And you may think I lost my creativity somewhere on the way, or my inspiration. But nope, reality is that what I lost was my sight. Yes, as you read it. My glasses broke and I’ve been spending more than two weeks not seeing properly. And not only I couldn’t read nor write, I had times of evil headaches and a strained neck product of trying really hard to read emails on my computer.  Altogether it’s just a bad thing.

Anyway, here I am, alive and kicking. And what can I tell you about the whole experience of feeling nearly blind? It helped me to see (literally) things in a different way.

From what you know up to now about me, I think it’s obviously clear that since I started this quest to be helped to find a job and how every step further developed my path, I’m still facing the same insecurity from the beginning. With the little difference now that being thrown up to another dimension of my same life made me think about my whole search as a sort of magical reason to understand other aspects of my life. Let me explain myself better.

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.

The Ultimate Job Search – making the best out your career and life mission

Sponsored post by Holanda Conecta* and Conquista Coach

new-Logo-Home-Page2eugenialogo_big

Since I started with this blog I’ve been more than secretly hoping that opportunities were to come to me one way or another. Being unemployed, now longer than a year, makes every day more difficult to believe there will be a job out there for me. It’s a kind of depression not to be working, not only because I’m living in a kind of poverty, also the fact that I’m aware that all my talents and skills are not being used. It also has to do with a lack of self-fulfilment.

Of course, you can think this is just an excuse not to go for it. Like I heard many times, if I’m so desperate about having a job, there are plenty of possibilities out there. And I agree there are possibilities, but as I said at the beginning not all these job opportunities seem to be the right one for me. Believe me; I myself can’t afford to stay any longer without earning that money I need every month to pay my bills.

This blog has been opening me some doors, not only many people are actually reading what I have to say, there are others waiting to see how I evolve and wishing me all the best. Imagine my happiness when Eva Visser Plaza from Holanda Conecta, together with Eugenia Vega Montesino from Conquista Coach invited me to participate to her training ‘The Ultimate Job Search’ in Amsterdam on a whole day Saturday. This was the chance I was waiting for to learn new tips & tricks and interact with fellow job seekers! Every opportunity is always a possibility for change. This was clearly mine.

Time is what you make of it – Embrancing change

Image

Well, it’s been a while. Hello back.

For the last months I’ve had enough fun on Facebook and a social writing life with the Blog Lovin’ Tour of The Declaration of You book. Almost every week during the tour I was writing a post about a topic and enjoying a lot doing it. The last post was about #trust, and that was the same topic I wrote about as a reason to join this Blog Tour. Then it was this deadline on Friday2nd. And I didn’t write anything.

So, at the end of the tour I didn’t make it to write (again) about trust. My idea about it has never changed but I’ve noticed my spirit was already somewhere else.

Deadline was Friday and on the 3rd, Saturday, my birthday. I was supposed to be hosting a bbq party with family at home. But it went different than expected. At the end, I was alone with two good friends that came to enjoy dinner with me and my daughter. I even had a cake with candles! I feel really grateful that they were here this day with me.

Then I realize that obviously this fun time was great but it was also over. Finito.

Celebrating my life as much as I can

Image

Well, glad I’m back to you here. It’s been almost a week ago I wrote for the last time, even my own other blogs have been left aside. The reasons are that we are having a fantastic weather in Holland, and I’m, yes, enjoying and celebrating it!

Kids are on holidays, so we are having less schedules and timetables to do things every day. We can finally enjoy the sun; go to the beach and going around. Finally having the great excuse to join with friends and having some cool beers in the garden or outside!

Summer is for me THE time for celebration. Not only because I love the weather, also because my birthday comes on sight. And this time I feel like celebrating with the world!

But just waiting for a season in the year to celebrate is obviously not enough! In the Netherlands there are many rituals and traditions to celebrate all kinds of things. What about the celebration of yourself? Not only going out with friends, also to celebrate who you are, what you’ve achieved, giving you the love you need to continue doing great. It can be because of you, your work, your studies, and your family, whatever. Everything counts.
