COMING BACK

... to work. Yes, this week has been the first one after my longest holidays since years ago. My head has not been completely focused in all the things that are pending to be done. Motivation? cero!!!!

Yesterday Friday, my subconcious played with me.

In the morning early, I was sooooooo tired and I was sooooo good in bed, that after I changed my alarm o´clock 4 times, I finally was able to get up. I knew that I was going to be later than normally in the office (usually, I´m there at 7:30, when not at 8:00). But I was quite slow doing all my things... so, I assumed that I was going to be 30min later as planned. It was still a good time to be there. What I did not consider was to take the wrong train.

I checked as usual the platform of my train. I saw very clear the number. I went straight there. I sat down and waited for it. When it came, I went up, sat down again and started to write to a friend.

When the train stopped (1st stop), I went down and suddently, that station was not familiar to me. Not at all. Well, I was not where I pretended. How did it happen? No clue... It should be the same case as when I took the wrong plane and finished in Paris instead of Madrid.

I arrived to the office at 10:00. My office decided not to work... and I could not really finish (or try) all the backlog emails that I still have. Lucky day, wasn´t it? :)

Now, I can really say that:

1) I have taken the wrong plane
2) I have taken the wrong bus
3) I have taken the wrong tram
4) I have taken the wrong train

The question is: when will I take the wrong boat? - Looking forward to discovering it!

TAX FREE

It´s a nightmare!!!!! I do not understand how people who is working in shops are not able to process the tax free and everytime that they have to:

a) Poker face in mode-on
b) Answer: we do not do tax free

After insisting:

a) Start having issues with the pc
b) Calling during several and several minutes to different people
c) Saying that the law has changed, that the way of doing it is different, etc.
d) After ca. 30 min insisting and insisting, they are able to do it under client`s instructions

365 Days = 365 Opportunities

Any time in the year is good to start new projects and have new goals.

Honestly, at the moment I do not have quite a lot ahead. When I was doing yesterday night my wish list, I realized that the list has reduced considerably during the last years.

At the beginning, I was able to write 2 pages with things that I wished and no wished. But yesterday, one was enough to complete the "wishes to be fulfilled" and just an a half for the ones that I do not wish. The second one was surprisingly very fast done!

This year, I will start something with my family. I do not know if we will be sucessful but at least, it will be funny for sure.

This together with some other wishes that I asked yesterday will be the beginning of the 2018.

Let´s the start begins!!!!

THE YEAR OF THE CAROUSEL

2017 has been a carousel. Sometimes up, sometimes down. And sometimes I have just gone round and round. The ride was sometimes funny. Sometimes a pain in the ass.

I had many many great things that I have enjoyed and I am very grateful for them. Some others, I will have to learn how to manage them and make the ride easier.

About the things that I have experienced with gratitude are:

1) Health. This can sound very typical, but it´s honestly the most important

2) Spend more time with my family

3) Having travelled quite a lot and known very nice places

4) Having met some old friends that I haven´t seen since min. 10 years

5) Be able to know what I expect from my work and to say NO very clear

6) Met my mentor. Withouth her support, the "down" times would be more difficult

7) Small acts means a lot for others. I am just remembering once that I paid less than 1chf to two little ladies (maybe 10-11 years max.) in the supermarket. They wanted some sweets but didn´t have enough money and they had to choose which one to leave. When I paid, their smiles was sooo big!!!! Never ever I received that kind of smile and so many thanks in unison.

8) When I have "made something" for some other person, I felt happy. Even, people support. For example, my company makes the "paper stars" on the Xmas tree. Volunteers had to take any of them and make sure that that child would receive the xmas gift that he/she wished. I took two of them. One of my friends wanted to contribute. It was funny to go and try to find the gifts in different shops (even if I felt a little bit of panic when I thought that one of them was not possible). One of my workmates gave me the pink papers that I needed; Repro made the copy of my design; another workmate corrected my "German"; a third workmate went with me (and then alone) to pick the big Unicorn for one of the children. This was without any doubt, a gift with a lot of volunteers.

   

9) To learn the real meaning of "patience": "it´s not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting"

10) Family is the most important and precious diamond that someone can have. And I am extremely lucky for the one that I have

There are some left hours for this 2017. Let´s enjoy them and welcome the new year with the arms well opened.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! (and good luck for the ones who eat the 12 lucky grapes!)
