I used to be a city girl. I thought I needed the hustle and bustle to feel alive, to feel productive. Being in downtown Barcelona made me feel energised. I didn’t hear the noise. I didn’t smell the smoke coming out of the cars. I thought running from one place to another trying not to crash into people was the way it should be. 🌃 But then I moved to Holland. Then I had a burnout. Then my mum got sick. Then she passed away. Then my priorities changed, not overnight, but through a slow and life-changing process that turned me into the person, the mum, I am today. 💫I no longer liked cities. I no longer needed the noise, the traffic, the crowds. I wanted to hear my own voice. To listen to my own thoughts. To reflect and to reconnect with myself. I started longing to be in nature, something I didn’t feel I needed or wanted to do before 🌱 I now look forward to spending time in the woods, hearing the soothing noise of 💦, seeing Laia run after all the 🦆 and 🐶 she sees. I long to sleep in a simple cabin with the bare essentials, to quiet the noise in my head, to smell the flowers and marvel at something bigger than us: Mother Earth. 🌿If someone had told me that this would be me now, I wouldn’t have believed it. Yet here I am, happier and more content than I ever was, when I was a ‘city girl’.
