March Forth!

Back when I used to work for a living, and ran a business, we (I and others in my industry) used to use March 4 as a marketing promotion day - i.e., today is the day to MARCH FORTH into your new (more organized) life, to take bold action toward something big.

Now, I am not trying to promote anything, and am mostly just hanging out from day-to-day. I woke up remembering it was March 4th, but I'm not really in a "GO FOR IT!" place.

An aside... This reminds me of a past business associate who one day got the advice to be TEN TIMES MORE ENTHUSIASTIC than she normally was. It was really irritating.

Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, being bold. Not really feeling it. (Sorry, Lisa).

I'm thinking, maybe you all could give me some advice. If you were here, what would you not miss? What, to you, would be the greatest thing about living just-outside-of Paris? What can I do (and blog about), to allow you to live vicariously through me?

Maybe I can regain (some) enthusiasm through you. Thanks.

  3. Rachel,
    Keep doing exactly what you are doing: enjoying the moment and the little things in life. One day you'll be back in the US and the things you'll remember will be just those: the crisp morning rides to school, the rainbow you showed us, the frustrations you had in the beginning. Savor the moment, don't try to keep reaching: see what's right in front of you!
