One of my objectives this year was to do more things that matter. Not particularly to feel better about myself but mostly to see what it feels like to do something I am proud of and that means something. I had a difficult end of a year in 2016, and most of my “challenges” were about feeling better and get my optimism back. As my job did not give me any satisfaction and I have decided that starting my own company is the only way to make me satisfied professionally, I also began to think that personal life should have a really important place and that this is what has been missing mostly lately in my life.

Today is an emotional day as a few hours ago I definitely left my foster kittens to the animal shelter so that they can finally be properly adopted.

Because I have bought, read and been positively surprised by many books all along 2017 (many of which I have already written about on this blog), here is a complete list of everything I have been happy to discover this year. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to read all of the ones I have bought or been offered but, as every time I go on holidays the “books to read” list decreases quickly, I am sure that by the end of the year most of the titles hereunder will be in light blue.

Some time ago, while I had been listening on Blinkist to the audio summary of Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod, I tried to implement an early Morning routine despite the fact that I am not AT ALL a Morning person. However, in the brief time I did it, I saw significant change in my mood and my Motivational Level. Problem is, I was starting a new job (and already getting up an hour earlier than on my previous one) & a new relationship (which resulted in me not being the only person deciding about my weekly schedule). There were too many unknown and new aspects that I did not master yet, which resulted in me failing miserably at the first attempt. Until, a few weeks back, I stumbled upon What the most successful people do before Breakfast, by Laura Vanderkam.

I had thought about buying a bike to cycle around Paris for a while (since early Summer) and had even borrowed my mother’s old bike to fix it and see if I would like using it. However, the bike is old and heavy and even though in the process of fixing it I proudly learned how to change the inner tube of a wheel (it took me 2 hours), I later realized that there would still be too much work to be done on it so I’d rather just buy a new one that I would actually like.

Sunday the 10th of September was the day I ran for La Parisienne, a 100% feminine 7km race raising awareness and funds for Breast Cancer. It had been raining the day before but it was a beautiful morning when I woke up for my first race ever. Continue reading “Week 34 – My first race, La Parisienne”
More or less at the same time that I adopted cats (and I do not think that the events are unrelated) I developed a passion for knitting, which also perfectly matched the equal passion the kittens showed for wool balls. Continue reading “Week 33 – I am now officially a Knitter”
