For two weeks I was swallowed by windows fitting in our house.

Where my ideas live

I have so many ideas, for the blog, for my Instagram, even for YouTube channel or podcast I don't have. But I don't follow up on them. I write them down, or not, and that's where they live. In my notebook or in my head. They never see the light of day, they never get … Continue reading Where my ideas live

Am I afraid of failure and rejection?

There was a time when I thought that I was afraid of failure and rejection. But it turns out that I actually don't mind. What I really can't stand is not getting a reaction at all, being ignored.

It is also a sign that it's time to turn my routine around, that I … Continue reading Routine change needed

Disconnect and do your work

I wonder what it would be like if we stopped thinking about what other people are doing and what has already been done? Nowadays, when we have an idea, we almost automatically browse the Internet to look for it. We check social media, we google it, we start to feel discouraged, because everything has already … Continue reading Disconnect and do your work
