Back to work. Restaurant workers in Lisbon, summer 2013.
Yesterday I sat in the audience when world acclaimed psychotherapists and neuroscientists were talking about love. And it reminded me of the importance of loving myself, to listen to myself and to just be. Therefore, It can’t be a good sign when you wake up thinking about your to-do-list for the day before the sun has even come up yet. Sometimes a little stress and pressure can be the thriving force that pushes you towards great achievements, but when it stays around, makes itself at home on your couch and keeps waking you up at night, it might be time to do something – why not join the zero stress group ? So today I push every thought about work away from my mind before I arrive at the office, I’ll focus on the task at hand and I prioritize and if by the end of the day some things on the mental to-do-list are left over I won’t beat myself up over it. I’ll also take my lunch hour instead of stuffing a sandwich …
Well my weekend has been pretty much the opposite of this but still full of excitement. After a Saturday trip to Ikea and Oxfam home I’ve been re-organizing the apartment. Bye bye living room and welcome workshop. I’ll post some pictures soon and I’m sure there will be plenty of crazy creative nights in this apartment!
I’ve always been fascinated by the small barge homes by the river Seine. They look so bohemian, artistic, colourful, cute and cosy, and it is amazing that these serene little homes remain safe from harm year after year in the very heart of the city. What a way of Life!

A beautiful blue moment in the morning, when I was still walking around the house with wet hair and watching the world wake up through steamy windows.
OK, so it’s back to work everyone.
