    I have never thought of it like this, and I too agree that turning a bad day into a great one is not easy to do. But after a little practice and “know-how” I think people will be able to take advantage of this skill and use it everyday! BTW, I love Turkey and wouldn’t mind going there again someday 🙂

    Kind regards,

    This was so emotional article…and everything you wrote is so true! Being and expat myself, I feel the exact same thing! It is important not to forget that we have so many people that love us and care for us even though they are far far away 🙂

      Dear Natalia, yes, I agree with you that we should always remind ourselves that there are people who care about us, but it is not always easy to do it, but we should find ways to ease our expat life. I’m glad you enjoyed the article and I wish you all the best,Ana.

    I think I understand what an expat is but I haven’t heard of this word before. Is it being foreign in a country?
    Byt the way, I loved your story and how you managed to turn things around. As you mention, all of it happened in your head. And you were rewarded with a baby shower with your good friends and new friends. Thanks for sharing this inspiring story.

      Glad you asked. Expatriate (shorter expat) is a person temporarily or permanently living in a country that is not his/her country where they’re born or they don’t hold the citizenship of that country. This is the “official” meaning of the word, but it is up to a person to decide whether they feel like an expat in some country or not. I’m so glad you enjoyed my story. All the best for you! Ana
