Pinthebest #7

“It’s not the goodbye that hurts, but the flashbacks that follow.”

Pinthebest #7 With this new Pinthebest today, I’m taking you back therethere, in the past! Because sometimes, I think the good memories are what help us hold on…

As you can guess, all this has something (no… actually EVERYTHING) to do with my good memories of England, of my friends I left there & I miss SOOOOOOO much ❤ … and with the disastrous family life I have over here in France :/

That is why Flashback is the theme of this Pinthebest!

With this, my lovelies, enjoy the photos and think of this little phrase above the first collage…

Keep holding on to what and who you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

Baby you’re a firework!

 You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine

Just own the night like the 14th of July

‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on, show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, oh, oh, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you’re a firework
Come on, let your colours burst
Make ’em go, oh, oh, oh
You’re gonna leave ’em falling down 

 

Happy 14th of July everyone!!!! I am just posting a little article today to share my yesterday’s hometown firework and the few photos we took with two good old friends who I celebrated the French national day with!

I’m quite satisfied with the photos of the firework, especially because… (as we’re very gifted #irony :p) we managed to arrive at the very end of the show, which means I had to take the pictures while getting there :/! Knowing that, it’s not too bad, is it?!

July 14th 1789… the storming of the Bastille, the fall of the royal authority’s symbol, the flashpoint of the French Revolution! Yesterday, we were saying that we really liked our national day, the Bastille day! It is so symbolic and I’m personally very proud of that day, because it also belongs to my favourite period of the French history!

I’m not going to teach anything in that post, I don’t think I’m qualified for that kind of stuff, but I will simply let you enjoy (I hope!) the photos we took yesterday evening (when I by the way had a very great and lovely time :D)!

With this, I shall maybe say… VIVE LA FRANCE! (Even though the country might not be at its very best at the moment, it must be admitted that this is a beautiful country that contains lots of gorgeous sights… and I think French people (that includes me :/!!!) should definitely be prouder of their homeland!)

I’m gonna leave you with this adorable full of love pic ❤ and tell you to…

Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

Much LOVE, my lovely ones ❤

Saying goodbye…

♪ Looking through your eyes

I could never find a safer place

Even if I tried…

Don’t ever let me go

I know I’m ok

Wrapped in your arms…. I’m home ♪

Wrapped in your arms – Firelight 

sadness_by_mithertiths-d4r339v

Don’t let me go… Keep me in your arms…

To all the fantastic people I’ve met over here in England; to you guys who are my friends and who it is so hard to say goodbye to, to all of you… Caroline, Melody, Jamie, Becky, Jenna, Laura, and the lovely twins Stela & Julia, to each of you… I’ve never thought it was going to be that hard, but leaving you here literally is a HEARTBREAK!!!

Not a long ago, a friend reminded me that… “Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again!” Even if it doesn’t seem like it right now, even if it’s still hard to believe, even if everything looks like it is all over… when you truly think about it, it’s just… true! And as hard as it is for me right now, as painful as all these goodbyes are (whether they were said in London this last weekend or this week on Hayling), I would like to leave England with this state of mind, I want to leave with HOPE! Cassandra Clare once wrote “Every meeting led to a parting, and so it would, as long as life was mortal. In every meeting there was some of the sorrow of parting, but in everything parting there was some of the joy of meeting as well.” I precisely want to leave with THIS feeling, with this pain due to the separation (because it is actually unavoidable!) mixed with the joy of seeing all these people I love again! Thus, you’ll understand I’d rather say “I SEE YOU SOON” instead of “GOODBYE” (which is, let’s say it, so much more depressing)!!!

This post is probably the most difficult I have had to write… Not because of a lack of inspiration or anything, but simply because it moves me a lot… One sometimes says that “tears are words the heart can’t say”, “a grief that can’t be spoken”. But as you can’t see me, I have to do my best to express what’s within my tears right now…

Kiera Cass once wrote “You’ve changed me forever. And I’ll never forget you.” I also want to add: ‘I will always be thankful for everything you’ve brought me and I know you will keep on bringing”. You arrived into my life and left your footprints on my heart and I know that having you in my life totally changed me… you changed me for good, even maybe for the better ❤

I know I will all see you again, wherever it may be… England, France, Europe, or another continent! But it’s not really where we’ll meet again that matters… What’s truly important is to realise that wherever we are from each other, wherever we go, wherever we’ll be… as far as I’m concerned, you’ll always be in my heart, you’ll live in my heart forever! And you know what one says?! “People who live in your heart are living with you!” You see? Now that you’re in my heart, you’ll be with me forever and we’ll never be apart… So don’t be afraid because I’m leaving… because I love you always, I love you with my heart!

Now I just hope that I’ll be in your hearts as well as you’re in mine… because as Pittacus Lore once wrote “Every beat of my heart belongs to you, whether you ask for it or not.” So don’t give up on me… because I WON’T give up on you!

Just think about this quote of Richard Bach…

“Can miles truly separate you from friends…. If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there? “

So to all of you, my lovely ones, Caroline, Melody, Jamie, Becky, Jenna, Laura, and Stela & Julia, I am not saying GOODBYE… I’m saying I SEE YOU VERY SOON :* Xxx

For this special post, I will change my “motto” a bit and write…

Keep holding on to who you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉 ‘Cause Look! You never know who you’re going to find on your way… 😉

You and I will meet again

When we’re least expecting it

One day in some far off place

I will recognize your face

I won’t say goodbye my friend

For you and I will meet again

~Tom Petty

MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF MY ENGLISH FRIENDS ❤ ❤ ❤ and to all of you, my sweet readers!

xoxo

From across the sea… 

Is this what it feels like to really cry? I shall guess so… But as painful as these tears may be, there’s nonetheless & somehow good news… These tears are the proofs that you’re in my heart ❤

I was HOME… I was in London <3

“I live in my own little world. But its ok, they know me here.” 
― Lauren Myracle

London has become my little world, my other home, my shelter…

Wow! That was a very intense weekend! I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone 😮 !!! I was so looking forward to telling everything (or almost :p!) but I’ve got so many things to tell about this weekend that this post is only the first of a long list! As I had told you last week, I spent the past three days in London… I wanted to go back there at least once before going back to France at the end of this week :s!

This weekend was truly amazing! I’ve done lots of things within such a short time… I couldn’t even imagine that was possible :p! I also met some friends there I eventually had to say goodbye to… and to be honest, that was really really hard! It was very emotional (but I’ll tell you a bit more about that part in another article ;)!!!).

Let’s focus on everything I did when I was there…

First I chose an hotel in the district of Soho, which means I was really not far from all the theatres and thus the “musical world” ^^ (that’s just SO part of London that I couldn’t be far from it)! That was so great! This place honestly never sleeps at night! This is amazing!

The first thing I did when I arrived on the Friday evening was to go for a walk to Piccadilly… Just to realise that I was well and truly home again :)! You know!? When you come back in the city you love and you view as your own home, you simply need to feel that you definitely belong there… all over again!

On the Saturday morning, I went to Covent Garden (definitely one of my favourite places in London)! I did a bit of shopping for my dad (as it was Father’s day yesterday ^^) and took some lovely pics…(at least, I hope you’ll like them :p). I went to my favourite shop, The Tea Palace (haha #tealover) and also to the adorable & colourful Pylone shop! While discovering the pics below, you’ll notice that I couldn’t prevent myself from going back to the place I met this person, who is such an incredible friend to me now #StarbuckS :)! I also spent about an hour listening to the gorgeous voice of Evie Anderson! This girl is truly amazing… she definitely should have her place at the theatre, opera or whatsoever! I liked her performance so much that I even bought her CD and I took a video of her singing the brilliant song of Les Mis, I dreamt a dream… What else?! :p

And finally, on the Sunday, I met two Uni friends who did their placement in London and who were my guides through central London… That was such a lovely day… except from the rain :/

DSCF3132 DSCF3133 DSCF3134 DSCF3136 I was home… I was in London3

Here it is, my lovely ones… the first post about my weekend in London! I hope you’ll like it and I wish you a very nice Monday afternoon :)!!!

“Home wasn’t a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go.” 
― Sarah DessenWhat Happened to Goodbye

It is indeed thanks to all the amazing people I met in London that allows me now to say that this place is home too…

(Just a glimpse of one of the next coming articles 😉 xxx)

Keep holding on to what you love, my angels & enjoy the ride of life 😉
