Writing more

I don't know why writing on the blog is so difficult for me. I don't have a problem with sharing my thoughts on Instagram, but when it comes to blogging I blank out. I don't have anything to say. And when I do, I don't think it's important or big enough for the blog. But … Continue reading Writing more

Action May

It always surprises me how writing seems to be something people think you have to be born with a talent for. Like there are only few that can hear the calling of the muse. Well, let me tell you a difficult truth. Talent is overrated. What counts the most is the craft, the practice, doing … Continue reading Action May

Difficult choices

I'm looking at my TBR-piles and I can't choose. I have and idea and then I think, nah, not this one and put the book back on. I know what I would choose from the library, but I have trouble deciding which book to read next from my TBR-pile (you can't see all books waiting … Continue reading Difficult choices

Spring in the making

Every morning I open the curtains of my living room window and check the progress of my magnolia in front of it. I go to look at the pear tree in the back garden, I look for the new growth in the front one. I look for the signs of spring, I'm consciously observing the … Continue reading Spring in the making

Learning to keep a notebook

I always wanted to be a notebook keeper, to write everything down, to be this person who records everything, every thought, every idea, every observation. I wanted to fill pages after pages, notebooks after notebooks. I wanted to have something to look through when I feel stuck. To have something to browse through when looking … Continue reading Learning to keep a notebook

Quiet weekend

I went off Instagram for the weekend. I needed a break, time to think about my presence there. Last year I took a week long break, but it had less impact on me than last weekend. When I went on Instagram this morning to post a reminder about tonight's live (only in Polish, I'm afraid), … Continue reading Quiet weekend

My own timeline

I made this plan, I called it plan minimum, as it's all about a few things I need to do for fifteen minutes, daily. Small steps to bring me closer to my dream life, my life's vision. But the plan is flawed. It doesn't incorporate rest days nor three days long migraine attacks. When I … Continue reading My own timeline

Take the pressure off

After 2020 there's a lot of pressure put on 2021. It has to be better, it has to make us happier, it has to live up to our expectations. I think that we should take the pressure off. Why not just live and see what this year will bring? By all means, do your work, … Continue reading Take the pressure off

I don’t wish this year away

Since the beginning of December many people say that they can't wait for this year to end. They can't wait for it to be over, to be done with all those weirdness that 2020 brought into their lives. I'm asking myself what their expectations are? Is the 31st of December some magical moment I don't … Continue reading I don’t wish this year away

Peace and quiet

For two weeks I was swallowed by windows fitting in our house. I couldn't use my room as it was a mess from day one until yesterday, when day finally finished and I could clean and finally use it again. I'm going to spend my day here, and probably next few weeks. Actually, I may … Continue reading Peace and quiet
