Wherever you go, there you are...

Are you done? Are you tired of life as it is? Are you ready for a change? You are not alone. I know quite a few people who feel the same way. They are ready for a change. Yet in waiting for this change they are setting themselves up for disappointment because they are waiting for the world to change, for their circumstances to change, for other people to change.

Wherever you go, there you are. And with you you bring your thoughts and belief system. You see everything through those lenses. Rather than expecting the world, your circumstances and the people around you to change, change the way you think and then change will happen.

A year and a half ago I moved from one country to another, leaving almost everything behind...including old attitudes, beliefs and ways of thinking. I have never been happier. In the beginning, I didn't know what to think. As though my heart knew what to do, I just flowed. My thoughts became lighter, less judgmental, kinder, more compassionate, open to different opinions and ways of thinking. I didn't do it on purpose. I wouldn't have known how. I just became willing to see things differently and then the world became lighter, less judgmental, kinder, more compassionate and open.

I know now that I didn't have to move an ocean away to find this happiness. Although I wouldn't change a thing, I realize I could have changed my thoughts over there. The world is the same and the people around me are the same, but I am different.

If you are ready for a change, I invite you to change the way you think. Be willing to change the way you see things, open up your heart and then wait for change for it will come.


  1. You become what you think of most about.

  2. It's true. We become what we think. We attract who we are.
