London Town

Every time I go to London, I fall in love with the place a little more. The atmosphere, the sights, the entertainment - I guess it's like any major city, but I really do love that everywhere you turn there is something new to see.

I went again this weekend to see a lovely friend of mine; neither of us live in London but for some reason, even when you live miles apart, London is usually the easiest (and cheapest) place to get to for us both! And we honestly had the best day. We shopped, walked for miles and miles along oxford street, around covent garden and over to the Embankment, and just chatted for HOURS. After what has been an extremely long week, it was exactly what I needed. 

The day also brought home some reflection too - a few years ago, if you had asked me to get on a train, and then conquer the tube alone, I'd have probably cried with anxiety. Not knowing where I'd be going or having a plan set out for the day would have killed me. I'd have longed for a routine to follow, directions to navigate and obviously, I'd have wanted to know exactly where and when I'd be eating, with every. single. detail. 

Turns out that I really am no longer that person because I am beginning to love spontaneity. It's taken me a long time, but going with the flow really is my new life motto. Not having a plan, being flexible and enjoying the moment really is what life is all about.
