Hi everybody. I hope you had an as great week end as mine : my niece got married. When I saw her for the last time, 1 year ago, she was still a teen girl. This week end I discovered a young woman who was living one of her best moment in life. I was so happy for her.
Then I came home to Paris (Saint Denis exactly) and my nightmare started again. I’ve been living a nightmare in my appartement for 2 years now. Yesterday night I lived a very bad and sad moment that almost broke me down. I wanted to cry but I couldn’t. I thought about all what I achieved, I thought about my familiy, my dearest friends, and I thought about great inspiring people who went through extrem tough moments in their lifes and yet succeeded to achieve their dreams. I also thought about inspirational quotes that could help me to bounce back today and for the coming days. That’s how I remembered a beautiful quote that made me cry : « The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, …and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. ».
The quote is from Rocky V and is considered as one of the best inspirational movie quote in the world. I watched 5 times and 5 times I could feel thrill over my skin. And that’s when I decided that it was worth sharing that moment of my life and that quote with you rather than posting another fashion week high heels, bags and accessories pictures that at the end won’t improve your life, your spirit at all. And as the founder of Style and the City, as a simple guy who try to make this world a better place, that’s what matters most to me : that you have a great life that brightens others lifes.
Life hits you badly ? Laugh to life and move forward. Use the dark side of life and our society to brighten your thoughts and decide where you want to lead your life. Laugh, smile.
