Hey You...Who me?
I am an onion.
I keep peeling each layer of my life‘s experiences.
I keep learning.
Little me, loved to be in the bubble of my family, my friends, my school and my home town.
I got stronger at heart.
Time came to give my heart away and with that leave my bubble too.
This young lady was ready to step in a new home, new country with confidence.
For years, I worked hard to make ends meet and I made home a heaven on earth.
Then I was ready to welcome a new life in the world.
What a bundle of joy my boy is ...
My baby boy made me a proud mom.
Life was going good.
Helping others and being a conscious world citizen.
Who knew ?
The peeling would now be done with a sharper knife.
My body and soul were cut into pieces.
A cancer diagnosis followed by a pandemic.
Double the trouble ....
Double the learning ....
One more year has gone by... 365 days of peeling and learning.
The pain equals gain ...
The more layers I peel
The more I learn.
The more I get closer to nothing
I ask ... is that nothing... everything?
