Follow your dreams!
I’m from Colombia. I was so crazy about moving to Argentina, I had a lot of obstacles, sometimes I was about to give up, things like my parents didn’t want me to go to live alone in another country, and some really negative and toxic friends and people around me always said things like “it’s hard, it’s complicated, it’s difficult, it’s dangerous, it’s impossible” and just the fact that I spent 3 years planning it and talking about it, so people around me began to tell me things like I wasn’t going to do it… all those things almost made me quit so many times!
I made a vision board with pictures of places in Buenos Aires. I had it in a place in my room where I could see it all the time. Also, I began my gratitude journal and always wrote things like “thank you because now I study and work in Buenos Aires and I feel so happy!”. Then, I made a vision board on Power Point and I had pictures of Buenos Aires everywhere!
On my birthday in December 2011, for the first time in years, my family gave me a lot of presents, and they gave me money. I could save some and decided to keep it for my travel. Later, in January, I worked for a month in a store and suddenly, on February 8 2012, my mother told me that my dad had my flight ticket for February 23!!!!! It was so amazing!
Now I’m in Argentina, and it feels so great! In my journal, I wrote “thank you because I could get a job so easily and fast!” And just two weeks after I got here, I began to work in a store!
I have so many stories thanks to this book and all the amazing people that posted their great stories here that always gave me the strength and faith I need to go on, especially in those moments when I feel like I wasn’t going anywhere!
Sometimes you can be surrounded by negative people and negative situations, but don`t let that make you change your mind! You can achieve and be everything you want, just give it a try!
