Welcome back dear readers, I am a little on a roll currently and that is why I did not do a break week anymore. Sorry but I just love what I am doing and couldn’t stop myself 😉 This way though we are finished with “The Artist’s Way” on December 31st and can start the new year with something new. I find that very exciting. … Continue reading RECOVERING A SENSE OF SELF-PROTECTION ~ WEEK X OF JULIA CAMERON’S “THE ARTIST’S WAY” ON MUSIC MONDAY CARE & LOVE

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, how has your week been? I hope it was full of discoveries and synchronicities. Not many questions from me today. Without further ado, I lead over to Julia Cameron’s check-in questions. Check-In Questions How many days this week did you do your morning pages?

Did … Continue reading RECOVERING A SENSE OF POSSIBILITY ~ WEEK V OF JULIA CAMERON’S “THE ARTIST’S WAY” ON MUSIC MONDAY CARE & LOVE

One Approach to deal with critics, self-doubt and fear

Critics, self-doubt and fear are topics that occupy me a lot and I have always felt that my vulnerability and caring for others are a bad thing. But maybe I am wrong about that. Maybe the critics and my self-doubt and my fear are actually teaching me something about myself. I’ve never heard of Brene Brown before but her talk seems to hit a tone … Continue reading One Approach to deal with critics, self-doubt and fear

The BIGGEST challenge I have yet to overcome

I have published this post for the first in March 2018. I am still working on the issue: In February I let you know how I had planned to develop more self-esteem in this post: How I am going to achieve more self-esteem. Turns out this is the BIGGEST challenge I have yet to overcome. I’ve never been that aware of how badly my self-esteem has … Continue reading The BIGGEST challenge I have yet to overcome

Luxury (L for #A2ZChallenge2018 )

Today I allowed myself a luxury. I had a coffee with lots of hot chocolate and vanilla sugar. Usually, I would have some spices too but we are running a little low and I haven’t found an affordable source yet outside of supermarkets. Hadn’t planned to use this word for the A to Z Challenge. In fact, I actually missed poor “L” and would have … Continue reading Luxury (L for #A2ZChallenge2018 )

Kindred Spirit (K for #A2ZChallenge2018)

I am coaching myself to manage English verb tenses properly. I suspect most of them I use sort of ok automatically because I am so long in the country however when it comes to explaining them my mind goes blank. Unfortunately, for me, I have dedicated myself to getting it right and that course I am doing is, well, not going too deep into the … Continue reading Kindred Spirit (K for #A2ZChallenge2018)

Joy ( J for #A2ZChallenge2018 )

Have been pouring my heart and pain out a little lately. Am not quite sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe a little bit of both. Most people don’t like it I suspect when you pity yourself too much. But especially here in the blogosphere readers are very understanding and supportive. And I appreciate that. I changed my mind about what … Continue reading Joy ( J for #A2ZChallenge2018 )

This pictures shows a yellow background with the new Blogging from A to Z banner. The background of it is red on top yellow on the bottom. In front of the red it says A 2 Z and in front of the yellow it says: Blogging from A to Z April (2018) Challenge a-to-zchallenge.com. Underneath the A to Z challenge banner is turquoise writing. It says Inner Critic Day Nine

Inner Critic ( I for #A2ZChallenge2018)

It is rather ironic that I re-posted two posts this afternoon from 2015 which are about Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way” (You can find my earlier posts here & here) on the day I chose “inner critic” as my topic for my Blogging from A to Z Challenge post. Julia Cameron’s book has large parts that deal with the inner critical voice as it is … Continue reading Inner Critic ( I for #A2ZChallenge2018)

Guilt (G for #A2ZChallenge2018)

I know my theme for this year’s A to Z Blogging Challenge is self-love and self-esteem and I originally wanted to write about how much of a problem feelings of guilt are for survivors of abuse. However, what happened in Muenster this afternoon changed my mind. As an explanation: I have studied and lived in Muenster from 1992-1997. I know and love the city centre with … Continue reading Guilt (G for #A2ZChallenge2018)
