You are what you say you are

“You become what you think about all day long” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


I just had a major realisation, almost four months later from moving to Netherlands. As soon as I landed, I thought of myself as a home body, a mom looking after children. A mom who gets stressed and has to “deal” with her children all day long. A person who lives and works at home and doesn’t need to impress anybody.

What happened? I became exactly that. If I look at myself now, I don’t look like a young 25 year old traveller. I look like a home body who eats too much and is sad because she has to “deal” with her children instead of experience them!


I vow today that I will change my mind about myself. I already have some fantastic affirmations:








I will stick to this because this is what I will become.

“When you want something, all the universe conspires to achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho
