The journey of my life

2016-12-28 06:01

THE day of 23 September was the worst day of my life, because that day I lost my friend, my sister, my everything - and that was my mom.

It was very painful. Tears and sadness were written all over my face but that didn’t break me, in fact it made me stronger.

I had to look at life in a different way, in a matured way. Having my family next to me, the care, support and love they gave me was a blessing because it was pure love - who we are without family?

Hearing your father tell you that I will be your sister, friend, mother, brother and also your dad. Those words were heart warming and no one can ever erase them.

In 2011 I was doing Grade 9. I failed that year and it was very painful. But the warmth I got from my family again gave me hope I didn’t give up in life but I was hungry for success.

I will not rest until I reach my destination. My life is not easy, it is not any easy journey but I have travelled it and I have conquered many obstacles.

I’m still going to travel this journey until I reach my destination. There’s one thing I realized about life - friends come and go but family remain the same. They are always there in your time of need.

I believe if you have family you are the richest person on earth. I’ve made mistakes, I have fallen but that wasn’t the end of the road and that is why I decided to rise again. The journey I have travelled is not any easy journey, but I have conquered. I was born to conquer not to be conquered by life.

This is the journey of my life, the journey of a young talented woman, this is my journey.
