I vividly remember, about a year or two ago, seeing a law of attraction video pop up in my recommended list. Being me & with a head filled with wonder at the world & nature I was infatuated with the idea that you become what you believe.
Watching the video and scrolling through her other videos, simple things like backpacking essentials and tattoo meanings stood firmly out to me.
Cornelia had this difference that made her so special to watch & watching her is not only motivating but her aesthetics are so relaxing and light.
It sounds weird to say but I always have my head in a book and I'm always dreaming about something or other & having Cornelia to listen to actually made me feel like we are friends. I am endlessly influenced by her love of travel & from watching her videos, her morals and beliefs slowly became engrained in my own head.
This was the first cornelia Grimsmo video I ever watched. And they seem to just get better.
Just listening to Cornelia in that video again makes me so happy. It's often funny to think about just how much people influence what you believe. It sometimes surprises me that this Norwegian who has never heard of yourworldblog from Ireland has had a such a big part in moulding a mindset that I have created. I constantly keep up with the crazy things cornelia does and I hope to meet her some day, to let her know just how much she has inspired me.
When I first started watching Cornelia's videos I was the kind of person who changed what they believed around their friends and family, someone who let people tell her exactly what she was. I had absolutely no concept of properly knowing myself nor loving myself & I have Cornelia to thank for that change in me. Now I believe, with hard work and my heart in the right place, I can do anything I believe I can.
I've commented endlessly under Cornelia's pictures and videos & although I still haven't got in touch with her just yet... someday I am sure our paths will cross.
It'd be my dream for cornelia, my absolute idol to some day in the very near future, stumble across this little platform of ours
all my love
