Beginnings

So I was totally against blogging this experience. Until now.

Sitting here in my tiny apartment loving every second of France, (since its not even been a full 24 hours yet) I am overwhelmed with the desire to share as much as possible with anyone who is interested. I think its got something to do with my generation and the social media buzz or the fact that I'm living in one of the most amazing places ever for the next minimum 5 months.  I'm living in Juan les Pins France to be exact. Its a tiny costal town between Antibes and Cannes, you know the place with the really cool film festival?  Its the most picturesque area I've literally ever been.

Why was I against blogging? I (still do) view this experience as something very personal. This living on my own in a foreign country thing is going to teach me a lot about myself. And frankly I didn't know if I was going to like what I am going to learn.

But waking up this morning at 5am - Hello Jet Lag, Welcome to the Party!!! - really got me thinking. Whilst watching To Catch a Thief, (one of my all time favorites Grace Kelly, Cary Grant and Alfred Hitchcock what's not to love? OH and its in the French Riviera my new home!) I felt it a shame to only journal about my experiences and keep them to myself.  Being inwardly focused has its place for sure, but I think its much scarier to put something out there that people can comment and reflect on as well.  Changing the way a person thinks is powerful.


That being said, this is that leap of faith that you all might learn something about yourselves too. And perhaps enjoy what you learn about me as well.  Because at the end of the day, my life's journey is to see beauty, give joy, embrace my own ambition, and enjoy every moment.  Heres to the crazy ride that is my life, oh and welcome to the party readers.  



For your viewing pleasure, flying past the French Alps :)
