What have you done lately, what’s new, what have you been up to? It’s almost midyear and nothing catches me off guard like being asked what have I been doing in 2017. What have I done, what have I achieved from what I set out for myself in January. I made a goal for myself to have more control so that I’d be able to obsess over the things that matter and relax a little more and let go of what I don’t need in my life. Looking back over the last 6 months, I’m not sure if I have made progress but I can identify the things holding me back. So where better to find yourself reflecting on the past than Chateau Versailles. Arguably the most beautiful, dramatic and enchanting site in the world (in my opinion at least), Versailles is the ultimate destination to see and be seen. And it’s not hard thanks to the French’s obsession of mirroring from grand halls, to reflection pools, it is truly in place like this one can see their true self all while gazing upon greatness. Whether it’s ourselves, our wealths, our abilities or our tastes, one simple reflection can open our eyes to what we need to see. So while I can’t compete with the beauty of Versailles – the breathtakingly manicured and controlled landscape or the decadent design and craftsmanship of it’s architecture, I can continue looking back to see what I need to change to find the balance I so desire for my future. So what have you done lately?
