I feel like I have always loved you, Paris. I’ve spent so many nights dreaming about you, you’ve been on every vision board I’ve ever made and I’ve been learning your language since before I hit puberty. My love runs sooo deep for you.
A couple nights ago I sat on my bed and looked behind me at the picture of the eiffel tower on the wall, the little bonjour sign, the postcard that says “mercy!” on my bulletin board and the glass turquoise eiffel tower I keep in a glass case across from my bed and I cried. I cried like a little baby, except these tears were pure undeniable joy. For those of you who believe in manifesting, and I sincerely hope that you all do, it took me over 10 years to manifest my first trip to the city I’ve loved so dearly from afar for so long.
And do you know what I think FINALLY shifted it?
I had finally been in a place where my life is going great, the business is doing wonderfully, I’m writing my first book and I’m traveling all over on behalf of business. Paris was becoming inevitable. I could feel it inching closer. However, my travel schedule didn’t leave too much space for leisurely get-a-ways as I’m very much a fan of my little new york apartment in between my various trips these days. I hadn’t spoken a lick of french in years since college where I took a literature class with discussion in French to keep myself up to par. And then I received a divine blessing!
I got an email from a lovely lady named Carrie Anne James who happens to be the creator of the online French school French Is Beautiful who happened to be a fan of my blog and my love for the french language was reunited! I started studying again with her online course, watching her weekly lectures, practicing my french as an act of self-care, to treat my soul and falling in love all over again. She made it so easy and stress free for me to brush up on my french skills while still running my business and having the blissfully packed schedule that I do and now she will certainly also be a forever friend.
Mind you, I started taking her course simply because it felt expansive, it felt good for my soul, it was purely pleasure and something I did for ME. Yet, not even a month later, I got an email to go to conference in Barcelona and speak. They were putting me up, taking care of my flights and of course, paying me for being there. Almost simultaneously as I thought to myself ” Paris, after?” did I get a text from a friend and colleague also going to Barcelona saying, “Hey, want to go to Paris afterwards?”.
ummmm HELL YES!!!!!
So here I am, going to Paris, speaking a little french, loving life a lot and reminding you that just because something you’ve been calling into your life hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it’s not on it’s way. It’s “on the truck” just waiting for the perfect delivery time. This trip could not have come at a better time. I’m renting out an apartment for the week in Paris and will be finishing my first book there. Just like I’ve always dreamed.
