It is June 4th, 2021. I woke up excited again. I didn’t always wake up excited. For the most part of 1995 to 2015, sometimes, I wished I didn’t wake up. Fast forward to 2021, I am happy, content, and excited for my present and future.
Born to poverty, my mother is my hero. She single-handedly lifted the family out of poverty through hard work, savvy investing, and being the nicest person I have the honor of knowing. She inspires me every day.
My journey hasn’t always been smooth. That is the whole point. I don’t think I have ever met anyone who did not face obstacles in their lives, one way or another. The important thing is to pull yourself through and rise from it to become the person you want to be.
I have learned many life lessons and cried many tears. I hope my lessons here will help you get further in life. Most importantly, I hope despite who you may be before, you will become who you want to be. I hope with all my heart that this blog will help you feel supported and less alone.
I was raised by a mother who rose above it all, and unfortunately, my father is the polar opposite. Who blames everyone else for everything. He is physically and mentally abusive and at times, I am still struggling to cope with the trauma he’s caused.
However, I want to focus on the journey that helped me become the person I am today. Nowadays, I wake up motivated, excited, happy, and content. I want everyone around me to wake up excited!
