The little things in life lately

Do you ever get so busy with work or school or everyday life that you forget to slow down and notice the positives all around you?

For as long as I can remember, taking a moment to appreciate the little things in life has always helped me to calm down, de-stress and refocus my energy. Sometimes we are so consumed with our to-do lists and the hubbub of life that we don’t take the time to see what’s right in front of us.

more difficult in france

No one ever said moving to France would be easy and I’m reminded of that all the time. Is it more difficult than my life back in New York City? I wouldn’t say that either — it’s, well, different. Life isn’t easy for anyone, but if you keep a level head and can laugh at yourself, the everyday stresses seem to roll off your back that much more easily. Here are 7 things that are personally more difficult for me in France than they were in the USA.
