Gayatri In Paris-What Did Emily In Paris Teach Me?

Trends shift like the wind and success often feels elusive. When we wish to accomplish a certain feat, we don’t know the ‘How’ and we certainly have no clue about the ‘When’. Sometimes, finding the spark to ignite our passions can often feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Yet, sometimes, inspiration strikes in the most unexpected of places. For me, that source of inspiration came in the form of the Netflix sensation, “Emily In Paris,” a show that not only whisked viewers away to the enchanting streets of the French capital but also touched the very core of my being, leaving an indelible mark on my journey in the world of fashion and luxury.

As I immersed myself in Emily’s world, I found myself drawn not just to the dazzling couture and picturesque landscapes, but to the beating heart of the story: the relentless pursuit of dreams against all odds. Emily, with her unyielding spirit and boundless determination, became more than just a character on screen; she became a beacon of hope, a reminder that success is not just reserved for the privileged few, but for those who dare to dream and are willing to fight for their place in the sun.

What struck me most profoundly was Emily’s unwavering belief in herself, even in the face of adversity. Despite the naysayers and the countless hurdles thrown her way, she refused to be confined by the limitations imposed by others. Her journey was a testament to the power of resilience, showing that it is not our circumstances that define us, but our response to them. In a world where self-doubt can often be our greatest enemy, Emily’s unwavering confidence was a revelation, a reminder that we are capable of achieving greatness if only we dare to believe in ourselves.

Yet, “Emily In Paris” was not just a story of individual triumph; it was a celebration of the human spirit and the power of connection. In a world where success is often measured in likes and followers, the show reminded us of the importance of genuine relationships and human connection. Emily’s ability to forge deep bonds with those around her, from her quirky neighbors to her formidable colleagues, served as a poignant reminder that success is not a solitary journey, but a collective effort fueled by love, support, and camaraderie.

But perhaps the most profound lesson of all was the show’s celebration of authenticity. In a world that often demands conformity, Emily dared to be different, embracing her own unique quirks and eccentricities with unabashed glee. Her bold fashion choices and unapologetic zest for life were a testament to the beauty of embracing our true selves, flaws and all. In a society that often seeks to mold us into carbon copies of one another, Emily’s journey was a rallying cry for authenticity, a reminder that true beauty lies in embracing our individuality and living life on our own terms.


Another lesson I learnt was to believe in myself.
Cliche as it sounds, this is absolutely true. Imagine yourself in a talent show where you want to express yourself truly but you are worried about what the audience may think of you. Who are they to decide if you are talented or not? The more you analyze, the more you realize that the only person holding you back…is yourself. Not anyone else but yourself.
I know it sounds cliche but trust me when I say, every episode I watched had an answer to the way in which I would perceive myself. If you had met me a few years back, you probably might want to walk and look the other way as you wouldn’t want to be around me. I’m not saying this as a self-deprecating joke, it’s a literal fact.
Emily didn’t plan on moving to Paris. Receiving the encouragement she got from her boss back in the States was just the tip of the ice-berg. Did she have doubts? Absolutely. Did she face difficulties when she moved to the luminous City of Lights? Absolutely. But did she persist in her belief to make a change for herself and generate immense value to her French colleagues who eventually ended up respecting her resilience? Definitely. The moment the season came to an end, I made it my life’s mission to change my thoughts, my style of dressing and take myself more seriously.
Not to mention, I even ended up taking my business venture more seriously and would work relentlessly. The Law of Attraction played a key role in my makeover. Soon, I started receiving incredible projects from the clients I wanted to work with (out of which happened to be my favorite brands) and many people wanted to be friends with me.
That is besides the point, but I am pretty sure you know what I mean.
It’s fascinating how a mere T.V Show can leave a lasting impression on you.
As I reflect on the impact of “Emily In Paris” on my own journey, I am reminded of the words of French novelist Marcel Proust, who once said, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Through the lens of Emily’s journey, I have found new eyes with which to view my own path, a renewed sense of purpose, and a belief that anything is possible if only we dare to dream. And it was extremely rewarding.
Armed with the lessons learned from Emily’s Parisian adventure, I step boldly into the future, ready to conquer my own path in the world of fashion and luxury, fueled by the fire of inspiration and the unwavering belief that the best is yet to come. Actually not ‘yet’…The best has already come and I’m glad it found me.
My journey has just begun and I see it growing exponentially every week under the guidance of the universe and of-course…Emily herself with a touch of Sylvie Grateau’s unapologetic and no nonsense confidence and unshakeable persona on the side.
