Life seems to have 2 ways of throwing things in our oath: a mind of its own or, quite oppositely, none at all. Many times we fall victim to feeling defeated when roadblocks barring our smooth transition becomes the norm, and its not an easy feat to be resilient despite those challenges. The past year has, for everyone in some way, been the most difficult and trying one of my life. This time last year, after taking on dedicating the entirely of my time taking care of sick friend in the hospital whose passing was life changing for myself, it wasn;’t as if I expecting a reward or in anything in the compensatory aspect, whatsoever. During my short time with her, she had given me the best gift I’d ever received in life, and one she had no idea she gave me or how much she was the one who made all the difference in mine and for the rest of it entirely. In only the first day of this journey, this young lady I barely had the chance to really know, simply thanked me. For being there for her. Little did she know that from that moment on, she gave me the security, unwaveringly, in the person I had always worked so tirelessly to be. In that moment, it was me as a person, my character, integrity, and most of all my kindness, all things I valued about myself, were the only things that mattered to her. For her, it was who I was, not what i could materialistically give her, fullfilling my promise of not letting her be alone, that mattered to her in the last part of her life, and for that, I am forever grateful. Life, however, seemed to continue impeding any attempt i made in moving forward, to the point I came to expect that everything was going to be a constant stuggle and fight, feeling like the epitome of Murphy’s Law many days,. But still, due to that precious simple gift, my resilience continued and got me through to this point now. I have a new job as a teacher/tutor, that is a responsibility that each day, I am overjoyed and excited for and one where I can positively influence the lives of children wanting to learn, with skills that they can potentially carry through life as for years after. But with this new job, I need to relocate closer and immediately as I dont drive at the moment, and the commute is too much for my aging parents to keep helping me with long term. Its also closing the pages of one chapter in my life and beginning the next, and relocation away from people(calling themselves ‘friends’ when in need) and a life that will only drain my energy and attention and these new students I hope to help, deserve those things 100%, without any chance of interference and I want to do them justice to the very best of my ability. I have a small amount of money saved, but not nearly even to find a room temporarily until I can get more settled, and am in great need of some assistance and kindness as soon as possible and begin dedicating all resources to this new venture. Ideally, if I could somehow come up with $1000, then I would be able to comfortably make this transition and immediately as well. But, as I’m sure there are many with more imperative needs, anything at all is appreciated beyond what I could Accurately express.
