Everything Happens for a Reason - Paris, France
This photo was taken when we were on a boat tour along the river through Paris to sight see with my program. As we were passing under bridges and the brick walls along the river, I spotted this spray painted on a wall. "Everything happens for a reason" has always been a motto that I lived by and that was instilled in me from my dad. It's a phrase that reminds me there is something to learn from every situation and to be present in what is happening, right now. When we were on the boat tour and happened to pass this spray painted on a random wall, I was hit with a wave of emotion. Seeing this quote was a reminder to me that my experience abroad is pushing my comfort zone and pushing me further than I thought I could go for a reason. There is truly something new to learn everyday and growth comes from hard times. It was a reminder that I have this opportunity for a reason and to make the most of it.
