« Que cette vie me paraîtrait belle si, au lieu de la vivre, je la regardais vivre ! » Jules Renard ________________________________________ La vie est tellement plus belle au delà de nos ruelles ❤️ Vivre au jour le jour, vivre pour soi, vivre pour la vie. Bienveillance et résilience. Se dire que la vie est belle, tellement belle. Apprécier chaque instant, chaque petit bonheur qu’offre le quotidien parfois si monotone. Accueillir chaque émotions, chaque sentiments et aller de l’avant... #ruelle#ruecrémieux#paris#couleurs#parisjetaime
Just realized I did a #tbt on my post yesterday, but it was actually Wednesday. I've gone this entire week thinking it's one day later than it is--ya'll I'm losing my mind! 😂 . On that note, let's talk about the mind and the power of belief...the question I get asked most about solo travel and my lifestyle is, "...weren't you scared?" . Honestly, HONESTLY: no. And let me tell you why: . My mindset does not allow it. Choosing to #livelikethewind is not a decision based around comfort; it's not an idea that is wrapped up in a cozy box with 90° corners, tied up tight with a satin bow. It's a pile of raw materials. It's paper and cardboard and satin lying in disorganized piles. It's trying to figure out how to take these things and MAKE MY OWN BOX. It's not even about thinking "outside the box"--fuck the box. Don't put yourself in a box. Boxes are for containing things. Deconstruct the box entirely. Take it apart, consider what it's made of. Get rid of the parts you don't need. Rebuild. Toss it to the side completely and go naked into the universe as the boxless rebel you know you want to be. . It's risky. It requires a lot of trust in oneself and a strong gut instinct. It's 50% confidence and 50% not giving a damn. It's a mutation to discomfort and the notion that constant change and positive stress should be celebrated rather than snuffed. It's the idea that some boxes just aren't big enough for an idea. Some mindsets don't fit inside boxes. . It's the mindset that every difficulty is an opportunity to overcome, a chance to learn--not a potential failure or blow to the ego. It can be those too! But why think about it that way? When your friend tries something new and they stumble a bit, do you tear them down and tell them to give up, or do you encourage them to keep going? . Why do we do the opposite to ourselves? BE your best friend. ALLOW your mindset to nurture you. Flip fear upside down and use it as the foundation for your inner badass. . . .
