13/365 Joie De Vivre

One thing my hubby and I were struck with while we were in Paris is how the French know how to enjoy life. Thus the french saying “Joie de vivre.” These little cafes can be found all over Paris. They are full of people at lunch time and again after the work day ends until all hours of the morning. It may be a work day but the Parisians are out enjoying their drinks, smoking and eating until their hearts content. They enjoy the moment with complete gusto without a care about tomorrow. We need a little more of that in the United States. We have to learn to enjoy now instead of always worrying about tomorrow!
