Now it´s time for the following block: Days 4 to 10
Day 4: What's hiding in your closet?
Lol. I was surprised by the prompt too until I read further. "Take a stroll over to your wardrobe and have a look." Oh, whew! Safe. ;) There were all kinds of questions about my clothes. I like bright solid colours.

Day 5: What would your perfect work day be like?
Thanks for the guide Kat! All the questions are helping me in getting it clearer. Still haven´t completed this prompt.
Day 6: What are the signs that you are on fire?
One of my favourite quotes is attributed to Arnold H. Glasow :
Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
I feel the fire when I get projects off the ground, like the daily #photoprompts in Twitter and my Facebook page.
What was your first gut reaction? Yes, fear is always present. For me it is feeling I don´t have "enough" credentials to do things. I´m old enough to already have a body of work to show you who I am and what I do and yet there is that nagging feeling in the background.
This year I found a poem by Ray Bradbury which has been my compass in the past few months:
Day 8: Manifesting. Put out the call!
Who could help you in manifesting your dream life? Maybe you already know them. Maybe you don´t.
Some cool synchronicities happened in my life these past weeks.
Example #1: Donna is a creative coach. We had some sessions a few months ago and she was the one to tell me:
She is launching her new e-book "Falling in love with life" and she will be my guest next Friday. I asked her to share one of the chapters of her book with you and she chose ... "You're allowed to change your mind". Lol. Not only I´ve been changing my mind about projects but I did it once again after reading the chapter she sent me. Perfect timing.
Example #2: to make a long story short I was chickening out on leading an "Artist´s Way" workshop in Spanish with a long list of excuses. A friend called me on them and became my first paying customer. I still don´t have a website and I already have sales! I was more ready for this than I gave myself credit for.
Example #3: I bought my own domain for the blog and chose a theme. When I downloaded it I discovered that it came "naked". The learning curve ahead of me was looking sooooo steep. I knew I needed help. I wanted a female webdesigner who could "get" me. If possible someone I already knew. A friendly face with solid knowledge. That is when a help offer came in the mail. Ana from Our blended marriage is now helping me out with the website.
Day 9: How could you a cultivate a life that reflects all that you truly are?
I´m making a map of the parts that make me "me".
Day 10: How will you make time work for you?
Marie Folerleo has just published How to change the world and still have time for friends. These steps could be adapted to a lot of situations, family, fitness, finances and even faith.
Did any of these questions resonate with you? Did you recognize patterns?
Remember to come back next Friday for Donna´s chapter of her new e-book!
