Well, after my 17-year journey as an expat, I have finally recognized from the bottom of my heart who I am. Looking at my breakfast I have experienced #momentum, imagine this, a Colombian lady with a homemade oat pancake, Bio maple syrup, goat butter, drinking Mate while singing #dejamerobarteunbeso a song from #carlosvives People might think I am experiencing an identity crisis due to having lived in so many countries around the world or…. I am celebrating the person I have become. That’s me. That’s who I have become after living in five countries, becoming a wife, mother and entrepreneur. And yes, it was painful. Not because growth is indeed painful, but because I didn’t have the tools to enjoy the ride. I had been told, growth comes with sacrifices and pain. Therefore, I followed the directions and took the hard road. Today I want to tell you my dear expat women, you’re safe, adaptation has nothing to do with losing your identity. You’ll always be who you are and if you embrace your adaptation process as a positive experience, I guarantee, you’ll meet growth and find yourself equipped with the tools to become a truer version of yourself. This means, you can use your new home as the perfect platform to express yourself. How cool is that? Stop fighting with your new life conditions. Stop feeling shame about who you are. Expand your vision and learn how to give yourself a hand when everything outside seems to be chaotic!
If you are an expat women, dealing with uncomfortable feelings, experiencing a lack of acceptance and value in your new context, contact me, I can show you how to grow without pain. I’m here to give helping hand.
