SUNDAY LOVE. #67. MAKING LIFE COUNT. LITTLE OLD ME & PARIS.


If you didn't know...where have you been...last week I went for the trip of a lifetime to Paris. Sometimes in life, really shitty things have to happen to us to make us wake up and realise that life is too short and you need to do all those things you have always wanted to do. Life usually when its at thew most shittiest brings people together and you realise who is there for you. 

Not going over too many of details to bore you with the love affair but a few months back, I was lucky to rekindle an old flame with a like minded fabulous lady who used to work with us at our florists. We always got on and I really missed her when she left back in 2014. This lady just gets me, we are similar people with rather similar dramatic lives that sometimes just take over. Many coffees and many tears, we threw it out there that we both needed a break and we just needed to get away. Two broken souls, we were there for each other and this trip might be the making of us.

You know when just something feels right, that's how went and blooming did it. By not being scared and with life slowly slipping away from us, we had to go and do something amazing. Screw the fact that we had never spent more than a working day together or the fact that we had both never been away without our partners or family, especially just travelling two lasses on our own, we just went for it!  

A few weeks later and we were in Paris. With hardly no planning, our tickets in our hands, an over packed suitcase on my part, we were there and it felt unbelievable. As I type, I still can't believe we did it!



I have never done anything like this before. I am the one who always waits around for the other half to go on holiday with or I always say I'd love to go but I can't...well this time I stuck to my word and made it happen.

Honestly it felt amazing to not have a care in the world, to have a whole city out there- ready to be explored and with the company of someone who has been so understanding and has been the most wonderful friend to share it all with.

Friends over the last few years really have come and gone for me. Having anxiety changed me and it changed who I was. Now I am on the road to recovery, as I like to think of it as trust me I still have my bad days,  I am not afraid of things anymore. I know I am stronger that anxiety and I have too much to live for than to live in fear. That's why I could take on Paris. I felt like me again. We could do what we wanted to do, see, walk, talk, drink and eat (even pop on a sheet face mask- now that was a funny night!) and we didn't have to answer to anyone but ourselves. It was absolute bliss.

So this is why I say, if anything apart from the most incredible I took away from the trip was that I can do anything, life is there to be lived and its up to you, not anyone else to make it count.

Hugs & Kisses

  1. I can really relate to your Sunday Love today Becki! I recently went to London to meet up with some blogging friends (I live in Manchester, so quite a distance!) and it's something that my anxiety probably would not have let me do last year and certainly not the year before! Here's to both of us for coming so far. Glad you had an amazing time in Paris, I kept up with your travels on Instagram :)
