A Little Reflection on Life
Here I am at Café de Flore, the oldest coffee house in Paris and the epitome of the perfect Parisian café cliché. Once a hangout of the artistic elite such as Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso, the ambience created in this charming café between the classic French decor and the jolly waiters emptying jugs of thick, hot chocolate into porcelain coffee cups while you pensively watch the world go by from the terrace is enough to make you feel like the star of an old Audrey Hepburn film.
Paris is no doubt the type of city that has so many awe-inspiring sights and scenes at every corner you turn, from the tall monuments that stand all along the lengths of the Seine, to the explosion of life happening all throughout the city’s sandstone streets, there are so many reasons to appreciate the world around you. Honestly, in a place as culturally enriching as Paris, it’s hard not to feel anything other than lucky to be alive.
In light of the thoughtful ambience of Cafe de Flore, and the feelings of pure bliss that go hand in hand with sipping a coffee from here, today I thought I would share with you my top seven ways to live a happier life.
