This is my life story. A story about how life can still be lived to the fullest in spite of all the challenges encountered. When I talk about challenges I mean unexpected afflictions and setbacks which brought about a near stagnancy situation. A situation where nothing seemed to work. But at the end of the day, with determination, focus and faith, my life has been restored to its original plan and design.
Not too long, long time ago, although it seems like a lifetime, but it's really just yesterday, I was hit with the harsh realities of life. I was practically knocked off balance by the unexpected and unimaginable afflictions that were thrown my way. I experienced life like a warfare.
Indeed, life became a warfare for me. I was no longer that happy go lucky beautiful young girl. I became a wrinkled old Lady sapped of life and my ability to be creative and inspiring. I lost my lifelong zeal to motivate others to becoming their best. I lost interest in a lot of things myself. I went into hiding.
Honestly, I had to start hiding because I felt like I had failed. I felt I failed not just myself but everyone else. I could no longer stand my irrelevance. I could no longer bear my state of confusion and feeling of helplessness. I knew it was a very dangerous phase I had been forced into. I knew I had allowed myself to relapse too soon. I knew it was time to fight to win or at least die trying.
