I started writing about my adventure in Paris last year and after the first month, I didn’t pick up my laptop again. I’ve spent the last week wondering why that was, and I came to one conclusion: When I moved to Paris I decided to just live. 2018 fed my soul in so many ways.

How often have you felt like you didn’t deserve the promotion you had worked so hard for, so you don’t bother to motivate for it?
