A few weeks ago, we reached out to anyone who would like to contribute a guest blog post. Including content from guests keeps your blog interesting and diverse and shares the experiences of others.
This week, we are featuring a very appropriate post by a fellow Virtual Assistant Michelle Gibson, which relates to what we discussed last week about achieving goals. We hope you feel inspired…
Slowly But Surely Achieve Your Dreams
I finally achieved my goal to visit Paris. My vision board, every day, had encouraged me to keep on keepin’ on, so that I could slowly but surely achieve my dreams. The targets I have set for myself. The reminders each day as to why I want to be a success with my business.
Here’s a little round up of my adventures. A few pictures I snapped along the way.
I think I’ll start off by sharing the absolutely AMAZING view I had from where I stayed. Totally breathtaking, and not just because I could see the Eiffel Tower from where I sat to have my breakfast, but also for the fact that I was on the 32nd Floor! Not good for people with vertigo, but this picture just doesn’t do it justice. At night La Tour Eiffel is illuminated and really stands out in the skyline. At midnight the lights turn to sparkles and make it even more magical.
I walked A LOT this weekend and also made the most of the Metro system, which was surprisingly easy to navigate after a while. The London Underground still to this day confuses me!
I loved this sign to the entrance and managed to get a quick photo. I wish I’d had time to compose it a little better.
After I emerged from the underground, I stopped by Notre Dame and took in the aromas of fresh bread as surrounding the Cathedral was the famous Fête du Pain. It’s probably a relief that the line to get into the festival was far too long, otherwise I think I may have been leaving Paris looking like a Pillsbury Doughboy!
Speaking of food, I went for a beautiful lunch with my friend, where we shared a 3 course meal over a pitcher of red wine (it would of course be rude not to while in Paris!)
As if that wasn’t enough, we did pass by the boulangerie/patisserie on the way back to the apartment and I had to take a picture of these delights. As I write this, it’s really making me want strawberries and cream! I don’t think I could ever write blogs about food…I would be hungry all the time!
Rounding up my day on Saturday, we visited La Tour Eiffel, where the usual madness of tourists surrounded us, but it was totally worth it to get up close. Such an amazing structure, you can see why so many people are fascinated by it. Especially me, as one of my past photography projects was about metal, so this was exciting.
I hope that in some way this post has inspired you to keep on aiming for those goals! You work hard and you can make them happen. Becoming a Virtual Assistant has meant that I have been able to achieve a trip that has been very special to me on my own accord. It’s a pivotal point in my career and I can’t wait to keep on dreaming and keep on achieving.
Revoir mes amis!
