In the French culture, work is viewed as “a necessary intrusion into the art of daily living”. Ponder for a moment how the French culture elevates common daily activities into high art. Designing fine fashion, perfume, participating in spirited conversations at a table laden with fine food, wine, champagne, brandy, embracing the notion of “C’est La Vie” with open arms, is in their DNA! It’s no wonder that “work” gets pushed off of center stage, unless of course, one has followed their passion and that too has been elevated into a high art. Cultivating The Art of Living Well empowers one to rise above oppressive circumstances, to exert ones personal freedom and independence, and to achieve ones personal best.
