Choosing Peace

You can point your finger as long as you want

You’ll only end up hurting your arm

You can complain about the lack of love

While you blindly reject the love around you

At some point you must wake up

See the goodness on this earth

Notice the good instead of the bad

You will then feel at peace 

To drop that finger down

Inspiration From Within

Montmartre, Paris

Most of the time we search for inspiration. We listen and look for someone or something to motivate us. What we need to realise is that our mind is very powerful. I believe the saying “anything you put your mind to, you can achieve” we need to believe in ourselves and make our dreams and aspirations real.

I have a creative mind and sometimes I get visions of creative work, but I never act on it and soon forget about it. A few days ago I had a vision of an art piece and I decided to draw it out roughly so I would not forget. That very same day I bought everything I needed to create what I had visioned and I made it happen. This idea came from me. I inspired myself, I made what I visioned happen. You get a feeling of success it may be a small thing but the feeling was greater!

I want to inspire you to search within. Inspire yourself and make dreams happen. Write small goals for yourself, give yourself a realistic time frame and aim to achieve these goals. Once you have got in the habit of goal setting. It’s time to think BIG! Make the big dreams and aspirations happen.

This website was a dream of mine. It may not be near finished to how I want it but I’m working towards it and making it happen. Always take action straight away, no dream is too big if you put your mind to it. The mind is more powerful than you believe.

Have a great week. Remember to stay positive!😀

London to Paris

20160619_132842

 

Recently I have moved to Paris with a very tight budget I’m surprised I pulled it off. If you have lived in London you will find that Paris is quite cheap compared to London so it is possible moving out there with a tight budget.

Accomodation

I found my accommodation with eramasu. In Paris the rent and deposit for a studio flat cost me £850. In London it would have cost me £1400 for rent and deposit. This may not the average pricing but this is what it cost me.

Travel

20160619_132601

Today in Paris I bought a weekend deal where I can travel on the metro all day for €3.85. I was very impressed because for a day pass in London it would have cost me £8. For a week pass in Paris its about €20 and in London £37.

Supermarkets

Food shopping in Paris is very different compared to London. In London we have big supermarkets that are local such as Asda, Tesco, Co-op and Morrison’s and I found that very handy as it has everything you need. Paris does have supermarkets but they are independent stores and some are not close by so you can’t always go round the corner and buy everything you need. What is nice about Paris is that you have the individual food stores next too each other which is rare to find in London only in markets. Where I live in Paris there is a Cheese shop next to that is a Fruit and Veg shop and a Meat shop also next door. They are all local produce.

I’m not completely settled in Paris as there are afew things I need to do such as; get a french bank account, get a navigo pass, register to local doctors and learn to speak french. I’m going to challenge myself to speak fluent french in 3months. I’ll make update about that, however so far so good a lot of people speak English which is helpful, the weather is not so great but the city is still beautiful and the Parisian’s are friendly.

Leaving the Beautiful Lake District

20160604_152116I have had a good experience of working in the Lake District and also a not so great experience. But no one can take away its natural beauty. I stayed in Keswick and Kendal and the landscape is just amazing to look at. I’ll share a few pictures I took during my stay.

On my previous post ‘Trying to Stay Positive’ you will read that my accommodation was not great at all and I couldn’t wait to leave. Well I have excellent news and the countdown has finished and I can finally leave. My positive mindset kept me going and I’m very happy I managed to stay. The people I was working with also helped as they were very friendly and welcoming. Overall I had an amazing challenging experience at the Lake District.
