Find Your Little Piece of Paradise for Deep Conversations


You may not know that somewhere close to you is a wonderful place you can go to and make it your little piece of paradise. My fiancé and I discovered the Montreal Botanical Garden, which is barely 8 kilometers from my house.

We didn't know much about it. The first time, we went with friends to see the Lantern festival. We then decided to go back during the day in the midst of a local vacation. We fell in love with the gardens.

The place has a special soul. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful and we feel at ease and open.

It didn't take long for it become a natural habit for us to go take long walks through the different gardens and have deep conversations about our life goals. It takes us away from routine distractions and puts us in the middle of paradise-like nature, which helps us focus and spend quality time together.

I cannot say how many life changing discussions we had there. Since we got our yearly pass (best investment ever), we go about 30 times a year.

Living in Montreal Québec, we get heavy winter. Well, it doesn't stop us. We go even during the cold days of Canada's winter.

...and it pays off! :D

All that to say that somewhere around you is a hidden gem where you can go alone or with your significant one to focus on the present and your goals. Get away from the daily distractions and find that place that's reserved for quality time and self-improvement. It maybe a walk around your neighborhood, your favourite coffee shop, a park, a forest, or whatever else makes you feel at ease and open.

While having these conversations, internal or external, be brutally honest with yourself and expose what is troubling you. Take ownership of your life circumstances, do not be the victim, and work on solutions.

Who Am I? I'm many things. I'm passionate about tons of stuff. I love travel. I love self-improvement. I'm a sucker for optimization, efficiency, and minimalism. I renewed with mathematics and science, those are so amazing. Astronomy and chemistry are just plain awesome! I'm a student, a mentor, a traveler, a learner, an artist, an animator, and Disney brings me tears of joy! I love to grow and I will never stop! So who am I? All that and everything else I have not discovered about myself yet. It's a never ending answer!

J'ai renoué avec les mathématiques et les sciences, des mondes tout simplement incroyable. L'astronomie et la chimie sont tout simplement génial! Je suis étudiante, mentor, voyageuse, artiste, animatrice et Disney m'apporte des larmes de joie! J'aime me pousser à fond et je ne cesserai jamais! Alors, qui suis-je? Tout cela et tout le reste que je n'ai pas encore découvert de moi-même. C'est une réponse sans fin!
