Why do I change my profile picture?

Someone asked me why I find it necessary to change my profile picture now and then? This is the answer:

I like waking up and not look at the same thing again and again everyday. It refreshes my mind. It reminds me how my face and life is changing after a rough and painful pregnancy that changed my skin and my body. I am definately not too vain but its good to be just a little bit. Analysing yourself, not being unsure (not necessary) but just having good control over your image.

I do not only practice this with my profile, but also at home with my:

  • Furniture
  • Children’s toys
  • Garden
  • my working place

At home I change my furniture’s position now and then. I feel like I am in a new area again. A new atmosphere, gives me a new fresh mind. Bringing good and new ideas. This goes even further, that when I choose a living room, it should be a fancifully designed house. I do this with the children’s toys, I hide the old toys and bring the other toys back in again. The kids react as if they have new toys, after having to miss them for sometime.

Dutch husband preparing a Zimbabwean dish

Yes they do it when you give them the chance to,……..

When I met my husband I never thought he will even be the type of a man who would stand in the kitchen making my cultural dish, #Sadza. I thought I was the only one going to prepare this whenever I feel like eating my traditional food.

It took some time for him to get used to this meal. Now we have children and they did tasted sadza and porridge made from maize, they really love it.  He started enjoying the meal very well and now we almost eat it a few times in a week.

There is no way I can stop falling in love with my husband if he goes this far trying to combine our culture. Our children are learning along with us.

The bottom part is how do I deal with the fact that I am living in Holland and missing my own roots. The best way for me so far is to include my own family into the whole missing home system so they can help me appreciate what I have now and to cherish what I left behind in Zimbabwe.
