Practicing gratitude for the past few years 🥰
London was a lifeline for me after experiencing debilitating and constant anxiety studying a degree at McGill University. I was so on edge and miserable, finding myself in a state of continuous panic thinking about how every paper was a deciding factor of whether I could have a nice car, buy a house, or ultimately, have a happy life.
I was living in the future, and every decision, breath, or thought was void of awareness on the here and now.
I decided to take a break, regroup myself and take a diploma course @lecordonbleulondon in Nutrition, Gastronomy and Food Trends.
It was the second I landed in London after a red eye flight with my father to check out flats that I fell in love with the city.
The course flew by, I quickly graduated, and found my current amazing partner. I decided I couldn’t go back to who I was and London was a part of that transition. The city keeps you on your toes. It’s unpredictable. You have to think about the present and live your seconds to the fullest. 🏙
Moving here officially has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my life- from working in kitchens, fighting illness, culture shock, changing schools, calling money ‘quid’ instead of ‘dollars’, the differences in food, and most of all, missing my family. 💗
I can still say I am so grateful for the experience - good and hard- of moving abroad, and I look forward to the uniqueness of the daily and with such, its lessons.
My mantra, each and everyday:
I am exactly where I am supposed to be, right now ✨
