The Art of Living in the Moment; Paris

To summarize Paris in a few words, it would be arts, gastronomy, civilization and romanticism. But if one were to delve deeper into the Parisian way of life without the preconceptions attached to the mystical city, one would notice a certain kind of peace; a way of life that is so different and profound...Parisians live in the moment...

“We're so busy watching out for what's just ahead of us that we don't take time to enjoy where we are.” - Bill Watterson

Most of the time, we are so bogged down with events from the past or future that we forget to enjoy the present. To take time and observe. To use our basic senses and feel the moment.

In Paris, people take the time to sit down in a simple cafe like this and spend hours chatting over a cup of coffee...a simple joy most of us often miss out on while pursuing our goals/ targets/ achievements.

Something we must constantly remind ourselves...
