c'est moi

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in where I am as a deciding factor on how I feel and how I'm living my life... it's as if I let the city I'm in determine who I am. And I'm sort of missing the person I am in Paris... 
I'm not quite sure how to describe my Parisian self, this person I've met and adore... She is inspired but still focused. Lighthearted and true to her desires. She is curious and enchanted and so saturated in what makes her her that she sparkles in recognition of herself.

So yes. It is definitely time to find her somewhere beneath the chaos of routine and responsibility because I know she's in there somewhere.
