Five Things Friday: October 12

Happy Friday Friends ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope it has been an amazing week for you! Here are my highlights from lovely Lazio:

Afternoon with Elyssa!

I spent Saturday afternoon with Elyssa! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ We had a delicious vegan lunch at Cul de Sac near Piazza Navona and then checked out the piazza post-showers for some photography ๐Ÿ“ธ The puddles made for some beautiful captures which were visible on my InstaStory – Are you following along? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will miss you Roma

This was my last week in Roma for almost 2 months. Every time I am about to leave Rome starts to look even more beautiful (if that’s possible) and some “FOMO” starts to kick in ๐Ÿ˜œ I know amazing adventures await me on the other side though ๐Ÿ’› I can’t wait to see my family.ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Garden of Ninfa

On Sunday I visited the beautiful Garden of Ninfa with my friend Diego. Diego is actually a Patreon of mine, so it was so great to finally meet in person and enjoy such a lovely day together! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒป The Garden of Ninfa is such a unique place; Its very special microclimate allows for EVERYTHING to grow ๐ŸŒฑ Throughout the Garden you can spot plants, flowers and trees from all over the world ๐ŸŒ They can also grow up to 3x their size! How magically incredible! For photos and facts from the Garden of Ninfa you can check out my Instagram Stories.

Rooftops with my Girls

What more could I ask for than an evening with these ladies watching the sunset over Rome? ๐Ÿงก Ci vediamo presto amores!

Good Vibrations!

As I mentioned last week, the Universe has been clearing out some energies and bringing some lessons to light for a while now, and I am finally feeling clear again. I know a new chapter is about to unfold and adventure is just around the corner – I couldn’t be more prepared or excited for it! ๐Ÿ˜„ Andiamo!

Five Things Friday: October 5

Hello my beautiful friends!

I hope you have had a lovely week so far ๐Ÿ˜Š Here are the highlights of mine:

Tea, please!

For the month of October I am partaking in a healthy challenge: #SoberOctober ๐ŸŽƒ I have given up coffee and alcohol and will be off of it for the entire month. So far I have really enjoyed the challenge ๐Ÿ˜Š It has me feeling refreshed and I have been sleeping deeper than I have in a very long time ๐Ÿ˜ดโœจ

 

Sh!t The Moon Said

This week I finished the physical book Sh!t The Moon Said,” by Gerard Armond Powell ๐Ÿ““ This was a very inspiring true story about changing your life for the better. Powell explains how when you are open to life’s experiences and life’s magic, you have the ability to reconnect to your soul and live your greatest, most authentic lifeย ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผย Packed full of wisdom, authenticity and change, I highly recommend this book๐ŸŒš

 

Sunshine in a Mediterranean Garden

I spent Wednesday poolside at the Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria and what a dream it was. I swam, I read, I lounged… it was so peaceful and beautiful. The pool is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden filled with palm trees and umbrella pines – my favorites! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒด The parrots were chirping in the trees and the sun was hot. It was the perfect day to dream, set goals and visualize my next chapter โœจ

 

Jo Malone London Event

On Thursday evening I attended the private Jo Malone event in Roma. The party was beautiful and of course smelled like magic! โœจ My favourite fragrances from Jo Malone is Mimosa & Cardamon and Lime, Basil & Mandarinย ๐Ÿง–๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ If you have never checked out Jo Malone London, I highly recommend it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

 

Reflection

I’ve been reflecting a lot this week before I leave Rome for 7-8 weeks. I’ve noticed the Universe clearing many things out that have actually hindered my growth without me consciously realizing it. However, I am happy to report I have approached these changes with a positive, growth mindset and can see a greater, more abundant future for myself. It is always important we actually learn our lessons the Universe is sending us. That is how we move forward.

Five Things Friday: September 14

Ciao Amici!

I hope you have had an amazing week so far ๐Ÿ˜Š Here are my highlights from The Eternal City:

 

Autumn is Coming

Although we’ve consistently been in the high 20’s and even 30’s this week ๐Ÿ˜› the leaves are starting to change and I can’t help but to fall in love with Roma all over again! ๐Ÿ‚

 

Leftover Pasta in Campo

Monday afternoon after class I decided to enjoy pranzo (๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น: lunch) in Campo de’ Fiori for a nice change. This piazza is always bustling and full of life. I plan to make more of an effort to enjoy my lunches outdoors – even if it means my pasta is cold ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’s totally worth it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

 

Canadians of ROME!

On Tuesday night I attended the first event of the season for the Canadian Club of Rome ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ We enjoyed a lovely Aperitivo on the rooftop of Palazzo Montemartini. The sun set so beautifully and I was in attendance with two of my favourite people: Anastasiya & Elyssa! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ I am so excited to have joined the club for the year, it’s going to be a great one. Eh!? ๐Ÿ˜›

Nights out in September

This week NSP & DNG have been in town! We’ve had some amazing, inspiring conversations, however whenever that happens we always forget to take a selfie ๐Ÿ˜› So this beautiful shot will have to do to represent a wonderful evening of deep conversations and big ideas ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ To the #GrandeFuturo โœจ

 

I’ll be Speaking in Rome Next Week!

For those of you who follow along from The Eternal City I will be speaking at The Yellow Hostel on Wednesday, September 19th at 18:00 ๐Ÿ˜Š I am looking forward to meeting some of you and inspiring you along your journeys. Hope to see you there โค๏ธ Sign up for the event here!

Five Things Friday: September 7

Ciao Amici,

It’s been a beautiful week in Spain and back to Rome again โค๏ธ Here are my highlights:

Arriving in Ibiza

Our first night in Ibiza will go down in the history books for one of the top nights of 2018 โœจ We spent the evening on the rooftop of our penthouse dancing to our favourite music, laughing uncontrollably and of course admiring the stunning views (like the sunset pictured above). It was one of those nights that felt so surreal. I couldn’t believe I returned to this island one year later with a completely different – but same, life. SO much has changed and I am so incredibly grateful. ๐Ÿ’› The Universe is always creating for you.

 

Being of the Mediterranean Sun

There’s just something about being on an island in the Mediterranean Sea โ˜€๏ธ I feel so inspired under the European sun and I hope one day still I will be able to call this continent home without a visa ๐Ÿ’› This week I officially got my hard-copy Permesso – Italy, I got you babe, for another year ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

 

KYGO!

If you know me well you know that Kygo is my favourite DJ ๐Ÿ˜„ I have always wanted to see him at Ushuaia as this is where he has residency over the Summer โ˜€๏ธ I have officially tiked this off of my bucket list ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝย The night was incredible – so full of energy! Check out the highlights from this night on my Instagram Highlights ๐Ÿคฉ

 

Sisterhood

I already miss my little sis Gaby ๐Ÿ’› I always learn so much about life from her. She is truly sunshine in the human form โ˜€๏ธ We definitely did it up #Grande for the last hoo-rah of Summer ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŽ‰ I already can’t wait for all of the future adventures! We have made plans for our next meet-up! Any guesses where? ๐ŸŒด

 

And when you want something…

“And, when you want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

The beginning of September means the beginning of my Patreon book club! Each month we will be reading a new book in the self-improvement category. Because September always feels like a fresh start to me I wanted to read The Alchemist once again โค๏ธ Paulo Coelho actually wrote The Alchemist in only 2 weeks! ๐Ÿ“š Can you believe it!? Come get inspired with us, join my community here!

Five Things Friday : Aug 10

Hi Friends!

From Italia to Croazia here are the highlights ๐Ÿ˜Š

Conquering Fears with Friends!

On Monday Elyssa and I went paragliding (which you’re about to see). For as long as I can remember heights have been one of my biggest fears, however being with one of your friends makes it easier ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ You can see more of the experience on our Instagram highlights (@zoeyarielle & @romewise). Can’t wait for future day trips with Elyssa! ๐Ÿ’›

 

I ran off a Mountain!

Yessss! ๐Ÿคฉ This is me and my Pilot at Cloud Hunters named Stefano. Cloud Hunters is a paragliding business in Lazio, just outside of the city of Roma, but close enough to get there by public transportation. This was my first time paragliding and definitely not the last ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ The views were incredible! We ran off the Terminillo mountain range, and more specifically Monte Rosato, which translates to Mount Rose ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’•

 

Labro

After paragliding our new friends from Cloud Hunters took us to explore the medieval town of Labro. The walls, walkways, gardens and castle have been so well-preserved ๐Ÿฐ The small town is located on top of a hill in the Lazio region bordering Umbria. This allowed for stunning views in every direction ๐ŸŒ„

 

Sunsets that Steal Hearts

On Thursday afternoon I arrived in Dubrovnik, Croatia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท that’s right, I am back! This time for a week of adventure in Dubrovnik โ˜€๏ธ I’m so excited to share the adventures with you. This was the sunset from last night ๐Ÿงก

 

Dubrovnik Walls

This morning we toured the Dubrovnik walls! I’ve never felt more like I was walking through a fairytale! The sea, the ships, the castles, the ocean!! ๐Ÿ˜ What magic! Dubrovnik has quickly become one of my top 5 cities in Europe! More on this next week ๐Ÿ˜‰

Five Things Friday: August 3

Hi Friends!

From a beautiful weekend in Veneto all the way back to Lazio, here are the highlights:

#GrandeGoesVenice

How beautiful are these ladies? I am so grateful to have spent the weekend in Venice with such inspiring minds. Each one of us met online (on YouTube) and have now become such good friends โค๏ธ I’m so grateful for the abundance that has not only come out of this special weekend, but from each and every friendship I have with each of these girls.

 

Kia

I can’t believe how I manifested a friend like Kia into my life. Here goes a long-story-short: We became YouTube friends back in the days of 100 subs, we bonded over being vegan, then bonded even further about being girls with BIG dreams… We began Snapchatting each other to talk over seas and before I knew it Kia was here in Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น 3 years later we have met up in Italy, Germany and Portugal ๐ŸŒŽ I am so blessed. Her entrepreneurship, authenticity, kindness and drive is some of the most inspirational I have ever come across in my lifetime. Thank you for being YOU, beautiful Kia ๐Ÿงก You can find here on Instagram here & on YouTube here.

 

Bellissimo Burano

Burano is #InstaHeaven ๐Ÿ“ธ full of canals and vibrant fishing houses. If you have plans to visit Venice, Burano is only 45 minutes away by Vaporetto (the boat/metro of Venice) and is TOTALLY worth it! ๐Ÿšค The vibes were calm and cool – a whole other world ๐Ÿค—โ˜€๏ธ

 

Green Juice & Rollarblades

I made two purchases this week for self-improvement and these were a Centrifuga and Rollarblades!! ๐Ÿ˜œ I’ve been feeling vibrant and energized thanks to the both of them. I feel like a kid, really and truly, it is so important to do FUN things! ๐Ÿคฉ To me rollerblading is so fun (and FUNNY!) and juicing allows me to feel creative each morning in a new way. You can find more highlights on both of these on my Instagram ๐Ÿ˜˜

 

Zoey’s Diary

Zoey’s Diary is back tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited about it! ๐Ÿคฉ ๐Ÿ“บ I’ve been laughing harder and smiling more than I ever have, so I am ready to start documenting more of it – starting tomorrow with my beautiful sister Nanuchka (Anastasiya)Stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜

Five Things Friday: July 13th

Happy Friday the 13th Friends!

Don’t fear – We have a cheerful post ahead ๐Ÿ˜Š A week filled with sunshine, sea and smiles in Croazia!

REUNITED

Reunited with my GRANDE crew! ๐Ÿคฉ The last time Cheryl, Sofie an I were all together was in Amsterdam for VidCon. Each time we reunite it is like we have never spent any time apart. I am always so thankful the Universe brought me these Euro-YouTube Life-Genuine-GRANDE-friendships. ๐Ÿงก

 

Au Naturale

Even a year ago when I spent the summer backpacking Europe I felt very self-conscious about not wearing any makeup.

Makeup been a ritual every morning for me since I began experimenting with it as a teenager (Yup, experimenting is the right word – you bet I wore thick, black eyeliner on the bottom lid). Because I wore makeup more often than not – through school, corporate life, travel life – I don’t think I fully knew what I looked like without it, nor was I entirely comfortable without it.

When I moved back to Rome at the end of January (this year) I began to practice not wearing makeup every day. This sparked from being so relieved to have my Visa in hand and feeling grateful for the Universe working it all out in my favour that I took a big, long, reflective look in the mirror… and noticed that I looked absolutely exhausted.

It was a long trek back to Rome after living out of a suitcase for 8 Months – being fog-locked, having flights cancelled, snow storms – I saw it all – I suppose you could say it was the storm before the calm.

In that reflective moment in the mirror I decided it was time to give my skin a break, my face a break, myself a serious break. I needed to see my glow come back (I was in my favourite city after all! โ˜€๏ธ) From then on and in present times I only wear makeup when I have a special occasion or genuinely feel like being creative with my appearance. It has allowed for a new respect for myself to blossom. Every day I am more comfortable with me because on a visual level I see me more. Makeup might sound silly to some of you, but for me letting go of it more regularly has allowed for a lot more clarity, not only in my skin, but for me too.

 

Spritzin’ with Penelope!

This week was full of laughter and Penelope was definitely responsible for some good bursts of it! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿฆ„ I think we all need to be a kid now and again. I’m happy I was able to let go of responsibilities and worries on this trip (for the most part) and live in the moment… I felt like a kid again and it was special because I realize it’s been far too long. I’m sorry for not posting on YouTube this week – I will be back again soon โค๏ธ

 

Hula Hula in HVAR

This. Is. Us. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜„ More and more laughter here in Hvar ๐Ÿ“ธ We had a grande night out – dancing by the sea, sharing a giant mojito and enjoying one of the best sunsets I have ever seen ๐ŸŒžThese moments will live in my memories forever. Thanks for making this trip so grande Amores!

 

Thank-you MedSailors!

Thank you so much to MedSailors for the amazing week at sea ๐Ÿ˜Š A week exploring Croatia with our Captain Jo and the MedSailors crew was the perfect combination of adventure, relaxation, touring and fun! โ˜€๏ธ I can’t wait to share my Travel Diaries with you. Croatia has so much natural beauty, I know you’re going to love it! For anyone wanting to explore the beautiful parts of this world by the sea MedSailors offers tours in Croatia, Greece, Italy, Turkey and the Caribbean! ๐Ÿคฉ I can’t wait to see more of this world by boat! โ›ต๏ธ

*Special thanks again to MedSailors for sponsoring this holiday & post.

Five Things Friday: July 6

Buongiorno Amici,

I hope you have all had a wonderful week. Here are some reflections from mine ๐Ÿ’›

Gabbbyyyyy!

On Friday night I had a catch up with Gaby! It was recently our Friendsaversary (yes this is a thing! ๐ŸŽ‰) so I want to express my gratitude for this very special friendship. Gaby and I met on a little island called Ibiza ๐ŸŒด- have you heard of it? ๐Ÿ˜œ I was so close to not going to Ibiza… the day of my flight I found myself running down the streets of Barcelona; sweaty, hungover and stressed-the-eff-out. However, somehow I got my messy self to the airport an hour before my flight and thank goodness I did! Gaby and I clicked the first day we met, but over the past year she has turned from a friend to a sister. From bottomless inspirational life chats to boochcraft in California to #Grande adventures in Roma this girl had become family โค๏ธ thank you for blessing my life sunshine!ย ๐Ÿค—โ˜€๏ธ

 

A GRANDE Victory!

Friends!!!! You see this above!? ๐Ÿ˜„ This is my permesso (a temporary one until I pick up the real deal in a few weeks, but still a PERMESSO) this means I AM ALLOWED TO STAY IN ITALY. If you’ve been following me for a while you know how much this means to me. Italy is my dream, the place in the world where I feel the most myself and the place which grants me infinite inspiration ๐Ÿ’› I am so grateful. Here’s to a lifetime (because I’m Manifesting it) in my home, Rome! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

 

SPA Time Celebrations!

This special date at the spa with Sofie was to celebrate her upcoming wedding (yay Sof! ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿป) and to thank her for all of her generosity in the process of staying in Italy. I truly would not have been able to stay in Italy if it wasn’t for my beautiful friend and her kindness. Grazie mille Sofie, you have changed my life, not only by this, but by being a true friendย ๐Ÿ’›

 

Parco dei Principi

Although it was hard to smile and be present this evening (you will find out in my next mention ๐Ÿ˜”) I was captivated by Rome’s eternal beauty. I had the pleasure to attend the Summer Party at Parco dei Principi. As you can see here or on my Instagram highlights it was a stunning event and I am so grateful to have been in attendance. Roma, I can’t wait to continue to fall in love with you for the rest of my life! Thank you for giving me inspiration, love, abundance and most of all a life truly lived.

 

Not a Highlight

All of the the #FiveThingsFriday are always highlights and/or positive reflections I have had through my week, however I have something to mention today that isn’t a positive. The world lost 3 incredibly bright lights this past week in Canada. Rest in Peace Ryker, Alexey and Mindy. I am still in shock over the loss, trying to process why this had to happen, but there are many things in this life we will never be able to make sense of. This will be another on that list…

My darkest, yet most transformational year was the year I wrote about in Beauty in the Breakdown. If you haven’t read it, it showcases a year of my life from getting out of an abusive, toxic relationship to finally pursuing my life-long dream of moving to Rome, Italy. Both Ryker and Alexey played a huge roll in this dream of mine becoming a reality. Through their channel and their kindness I was able to paint a new road ahead of myself… One with travel, insatiable curiosity and an extreme lust for life. Times were dark and uncertain and they sparked a new light. When I put in my two weeks notice at my corporate job they were the first people I wrote. I know that if they had this type of impact on my life there are so many more deeply affected by what has happened. My thoughts and my prayers go out to all of you โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Rest In Peace Ryker, Alexey and Mindy.

Thank you for living your lives to the fullest as a beautiful reminder for all of us to do the same. May no day ever be taken for granted.

Five Things Friday: June 29

Hi Friends!

I hope you’ve had an amazing week so far ๐Ÿ˜„ From the Eternal City, I bring you my highlights:

Always Self-Improving

“A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.” ๐Ÿ˜Š It’s been a whirlwind of fun and adventurous times having my friends from Canada here for the past month so on Sunday I took a little “me-Day” to focus on relaxing and self-Improvement. I decided to listen to the book “Off The Clock” after I saw it quoted on Blinkist’s Instagram page. It turns out it was exactly what I needed to listen to to allow myself to feel motivated and inspired to live my best life even when I feel the “busyness” up ahead of me overwhelming. Special thanks to Blinkist for sponsoring this post and allowing all of my friends to receive a 7-day free trial from the app! (click here to get it) If you didn’t already know Blinkist allows you to read or listen to the titles of over 2,000 books in 15 minutes or less. Consider treating your brain to some knowledge this weekend ๐Ÿ˜„ I recommend “Off The Clock.”

 

Rooftops with my Romafam

Sometimes all you need is a night on a rooftop with your girls, or in this case my “RomaFam.” Anastasiya and Elyssa both feel like my family and I am so grateful to have them in my life. They’re the type of people you feel like you have known forever because sometimes they know you better than you even know yourself โค๏ธ I am so lucky!

 

Wadi Rum Memories

If you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel you know this week I have been pumping out the content from my life-changing trip to Jordan. This week I published Wadi Rum, Petra and The Dead Sea – have you checked them out yet?ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย I personally think Wadi Rum is one of my favourite videos I have ever made.

 

Thinking about the future…

I’ve been in solid reflection mode for about a week now – maybe it’s the new moon? ๐ŸŒ I’ve been thinking a lot about my life so far, the path I have carved out for myself, what I have learnt and what is next for me… I feel excited and ambitious. Yesterday evening I had a call with my life coach and I think I have finally begun to push away a large block when it comes to trust and relationships. Here’s to a #GrandeFuturo ๐Ÿฅ‚โค๏ธ

 

WE HAVE CONNECTION!

if you’ve followed along on my journey (especially my Zoey’s Diary series or if you are part of my Patreon community) you know that wifi is a serious issue here in Rome. The reason is because the centre of Rome is so old they have not yet placed a fibre underground which grants the city good wifi – I know, first world problems ๐Ÿ™ˆ – but when you work online this is a BIG problem! Normally it takes anywhere from 6-12 hours for me to upload a YouTube video… just to give you an idea. But finally, after months of searching for a cafe with good wifi, EX-CIRCUS (formerly Circus) has opened back up! Can you hear the angels!? I was finally able to conduct a clear stable livestream with my Patreon audience! Woohoo and thank you to all of you who tuned in ๐Ÿ˜Š

xx Zo

Five Things Friday: June 22

Ciao Amici!

I hope you’ve had a magical week ๐Ÿ˜Š From Tuscany to Corfu back to Lazio, here are the highlights:

FUN IN TUSCANY FAMILY

Last Summer I had the pleasure of collaborating with Fun in Tuscany on a Tuscany Travel Diary (wine tour) which was the time of my life! Little did I know I would meet some of the best people this life has to offer! The entire team at Fun in Tuscany are full of positive energy and inspirationย ๐Ÿ˜Šย A day spent with them is a day spent in pure sunshineย โ˜€๏ธ

 

Grazie Toscana

Tuscany is a magical place – if you’ve ever visited you will know. The rolling green hills, the beautifully painted landscapes and skies… I could go on. This day in Tuscany provoked a lot of reflection for me – how far I have come in a year, what next steps towards my goals will entail, etc. I am excited for the future and all of the gifts I know it will bring. Grazie Toscana ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜€๏ธ

 

Back to Corfu

Last year while Jenn was visiting from Canada we visited the Greek Island of Corfu. Corfu is a popular tourist destination in Greece because of its beautiful green mountains and sandy beaches (if you’re a young adult it’s also known as a party island ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜œ). Jenn and I had a great time last year relaxing on the beach with Mythos and Greek snacks. When we visited One Fire beach on the Amalfi Coast Jenn and I were feeling extra-spontaneous so we decided to check out the Skyscanner app to see where we could go in Greece for the least amount of money. We ended up booking a trip to Corfu right then and there (flights & accommodation) for only 120 Euros ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Adventures don’t have to be expensive. Here are my tips for booking a Eurotrip.

 

Kitten Cuddles

This is Gyro (pronounced yee-row). This is my little Corfu kitten ๐Ÿค—. On my last evening in Corfu I sat outside on the balcony stealing wifi to send some emails when this little angel came by to say hello. I named him Gyro (after my favourite beach snack ๐Ÿ˜‹) and played with him for the evening. The gentleman at the front desk came out to tell me that Gyro was actually disowned by his mother because he was the runt of the litter ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I instantly wanted to bring him back to Roma with me! The next morning I went out to the front balcony to see if he was still there and sure enough he was – charismatic as ever! (you can see in my Corfu Instagram Highlight ๐Ÿ˜ป). One of the women from the front desk came out when I was playing with him to tell me she was going to be adopting him and taking him home that evening ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ This is a reminder that we must always give love โค๏ธ To animals, to people, to nature. We never know what anyone’s story is so we should always choose to love.

 

It’s always sunny above the clouds

On my flight back to Rome from Corfu for the first time ever I had the very front seat of the plane, this meant LEG ROOM! And of course a clear, wing-less view outside of the window โ˜€๏ธ I had intended to work the entire flight; however the view captivated me so much I spent the entire flight in a kind of meditation – watching the clouds, reflecting on life… it was magic and just what I needed. I made the connection that it is always sunny above the clouds. It was clear that below us in the plane there were some dark clouds causing rain, however just above these clouds was the view above. This is how it is in life as well. We all must go through rain clouds at some points, but if we are strong enough and choose to rise above we will always be greeted with sunshine โ˜€๏ธ Wherever you are now don’t give up and remember to always seek the sunshine, it’s only ever just above your cloud.
