perfect escape

Despite the business of the city, I find myself having a lot of quiet time in the apartment. Even though I looked forward to all the fun I would have here in Paris, I was even more excited for the time to myself away from everything in America. Paris came at the perfect time, and it is the perfect escape. I came here with the mindset of learning more about myself. France has been my dream, and expectations grew for my time abroad. While I am here in Paris, I plan on seeking out answers to my many questions about life and of course my future. Even though this is putting me back a semester of graduating next year, I am okay with that. I am not rushed to graduate, because well I have no idea what I wanna do after. One of the first days here, a new friend slightly discouraged me by saying that I cannot find myself in a city like this. I want to prove that person wrong. You never know when answers will come your way; they could come at the most random times and in the most bizarre places. I love these kind of nights when I put on some music and think about the things that matter most to me. Music always helps, especially when I think about the people I am missing. I'm so thankful that God has provided me with this amazing opportunity, even though I feared and doubted many times. He has given me a heart of determination to go after what I want, and it's only because of Him. I am ready to become who I am meant to be and do what I am meant to do.

Paris, je t'aime.

Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments, and to live each is to succeed.
