Yo. I’m Greg.
First, thanks for checkin’ out my site. I can imagine that some of you have wondered what the heck a Gregoire is. Well, I would love to tell you:
1) A Gregoire (from French, mémoire) is a killer collection of memories that an individual writes about or captures to highlight breathtaking places and experiences, both public or private, that took place throughout the subject’s captivating life. The assertions made in the work are, indeed, understood to be nothin’ but awesome and factual.
So, there you have it. The purpose of my name and this site is to not only share all of my adventures and experiences from around the world with you, but hopefully inspire and motivate you to get out there and create some of your own.
Look, this world we live in – this beautiful, powerful and breathtaking world – has so much to offer, and I want to experience it all.
I actually got fired from my job in marketing, and while it came as quite a shock at the time, it motivated me to reevaluate what was important in my life and how I wanted to spend my days. Because thats what they are, my days. It has also motivated me to become as successful as I possibly can to prove every single one of you that has ever doubted me wrong. And I will. You can take that to the bank.
I went through an extremely difficult battle with depression. It took me a long time to come to terms with it and adequately combat those constant days of doubt and disarray. But what it all taught me is that this life we have is precious, and before you know it months, or even years, can pass in the blink of an eye. I look back on the past 5 or 6 years of my life, and while there are many positives that stand out for me personally, I didn’t really do anything. I just kind of went through the motions of life day after day.
And I got fucking sick of it. We are the only ones with the power to either change who or where we are. Only us.
As human beings, we are only born with two fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All of the other fears are developed throughout different stages of life. Your fear of snakes. Your fear of speaking in public places. Your fear of becoming who you are meant to be.
So these fears we have of taking a leap to do something that betters us as a whole are bullshit. That fear you have of travelling alone isn’t real – trust me. Of course there will be overwhelming moments, but once those pass and you are able to fully open your eyes and appreciate what is around you there won’t be anything in this world that can hold you back.
I’m currently on a 6-week journey that is taking me through Iceland, Italy, Croatia and Greece. To be honest, I’ve already started brainstorming where I want to go next, which seems kind of crazy, but that is what travel does to you. It’s inspiring in and of itself.
We all have the ability to do and become anything we want.
