Life is not easy. You will experience a lot of trials and challenges that will really test how strong your faith is. Some are life threatening that it can really shake your faith while others will challenge your belief, trust and patience with regards to other people. I am twenty- six and for sure you can still consider me as very young. Someone who is in the prime of her age and should take risks. I am in my mid twenties but I can truly say that I have experienced a lot already. I know and believe that as time passes by, more problems will come my way. The only difference is that after tackling and winning these hard situations the only reward I get is that I become a better, stronger and wiser person.
Five years ago, my family went through what I can say was the hardest part of our lives. It was that bad that it tested our belief, we questioned our God and even the sincerity and goodness of the people around us. In times when you are low, as cliché as it is, you will really see the individuals who truly care and love you. When you are at the lowest point of your life, you may seem to be very desperate and hold on to the only things you have. A lot of people whom we thought were our best friends and closest relatives are are the same individuals who put us in a very difficult situation. We felt that we were really down and that instead of helping us they were the ones who were stepping or looking down us. Fast forward to today, I can say that life is better compared to how it was. We haven’t fully recovered on the things that transpired that whole year. Nevertheless, we brought with us today the lessons we learned. Instead of sulking, crying and being negative of all the things that had happened, we chose to charge it all to experience. We wanted to become better individuals who are resilient and can easily adapt to the changes in our environment. We may not have the same amount of money or the number of material things around us. But were richer than we have ever been thanks to all the lessons we have learned. The amount of money you have in your bank account, the type of home you lived in, the things you have and wear are not the basis of how rich you are. You may be the richest individual in the world in terms of money but is zero or empty deep inside. I’d rather have my piece of mind and self- fulfillment.
Today, my brother has his own business connected to food and offers Vinyl Window Decals support . He has been helping our family while me and my other siblings work on different industries. After what we have been through I still consider us very happy and blessed because we are intact and together undergoing the things the life has to bring.
