Tenemos la mala costumbre de dejar para luego, de reír poco y de querer hacerlo mañana. Tenemos la mala costumbre de echar de menos, en lugar de hacerlo de más. La mala costumbre de usar los luegos y no los ahoras. Luego te llamo, luego te escribo, luego te contesto, luego nos vemos. Y obviamente nunca llamó, nunca escribió, nunca contestó y nunca fue visto. Tenemos la mala costumbre de querer tarde. De valorar tarde. De pedir perdón demasiado pronto. Debería haber un número máximo de perdones. Perdonar nos hace grandes, de acuerdo, pero cuando tienes que perdonar todos los…

Do you know someone who has been feeling down latey? You can give them some ‘pills for bad times’.
1st – Buy candies of different colors
2nd – Separate candies in plastic bags by colors
3d – Decide which problem/ bad moment will resolve each color and label the bags
4th – Put them all together in a box and give it as a present!
In my case I used these colors:
- Red is for broken hearts
- White is to feel in peace
- Yellow is for when you need to think long about something
- Blue is for those moments when you need to be stronger
- Brown is for those moments where you are bored
- and Orange is for the rest of the problems
Many of the videos/ stories/ pictures I’ve posted are motivational but sometimes people need advices or a ‘how to’ guide to walk forward.
Today I want to post a video about what to do in desilution moments or when somebody leaves your life. The video is in Spanish so I’ll write down the five tips exposed in there.
When desilution appears in our life:
1st – You have to understand every life is a road; you can share your way with other roads but you cannot possess them. Understand that some roads will not be next yours as long as you may want.
2nd – Dependence is the result of your insecurity. You are afraid of going futher of your comfort zone because you don’t know what you can find. So you need to revert this situation. How?
3rd – You have to take control of yourself. Why do you think the situation may not be better than in the past? Didn’t you know an awesome person in the past? Didn’t you live an awesome time? Why cannot this situation repeat? If you are aware of this, you can start changing what makes you feel insecure.
4th – To help in the last point you also may change your point of view. When there is a problem or a disappointment you can choose how to face it: you can cry and cry and think how miserable you are and act like a victim, or you can stop it and think about what did you make wrong to learn today’s lesson to try not to repeat the same mistakes in the future.
5th – Create space in your mind. If you want to live new experiences, to meet new people or whatever, you first need to empty your mind of what you had there before.
