A delicious escape : Hot chocolate !

This is it. Winter is upon us and it is so freaking cold ! And with that, just a craving for coziness, comfort and a nice cup of hot chocolate to start my day, in a nutshell, a hot beverage to wake up slowly and enjoy this delicious drink alone and escape from to do lists, calls and meetings that I need to deal with in a few hours. Have a good day beauties and try to start the day slowly but surely. Credit featured picture : homemadewithlove.com

A United Kingdom

Imagine yourself in the late 40s, a working British woman falling in love with an African prince. When your love is called back in his country to become King, what will you do ? Will you follow him, giving up your previous life and listening to your heart and your intuition ? This is what Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) will do and prove that her love for her husband is above race and politics, assumptions and judgements. This film is a beautiful and real fairy tale which convey the principles of freedom, independence, willpower, love. And this is why I want to see it. Because this film is a fantastic reminder that individuality , love and willpower are our key assets to fight and live our life the way we want it to be. As an individual, we need to empower ourselves and reject narrow-minded people and surround ourselves with positive, energetic people who have the same hunger for life, challenges, love and authenticity.

Grit – The power of passion and perseverance by Angela Duckworth

I am intrigued by this book because at the time where we will soon reflect on this year, I like to know that reaching my goals is part of a continuous work to be determined, perseverant and consistent. Added to that your passion and you have the ingredients to thrive despite all the roadblocks which will try to demotivate you. I like the idea to explore and identify the rationale behind our goals, to know what it is helping us to use most of our potential, unlock it and pursue with clarity our dreams. This is a book I will read because it will guide me, once again to re-align my thoughts and reach my goals with time and grit. I will, of course, keep you in the loop to confirm whether this book help me to empower myself. Credit featured picture : angeladuckworth.com
