I have read a very striking life story today from a brave lady. Thank you so much, Jackie for sharing the pieces of yourself so candidly. I’m very humbled. May your tribe be blessed forever! You can check it out (The Painted Veil) yourself if you have by chance a time to spare. It’s a story of struggle and triumph and it’s worth your time.
I realized that the best thing to move on so freely is to share your life and your story. We all have a story to share, pieces of ourselves that reflects who we are today and yet it’s deeply defined by our past. I remembered being very inquisitive as a kid (well, until now). I don’t stop looking, observing, learning and living. I gave up the notion that “Life is Not Fair” long time ago and it will never be. Instead, I started making peace with myself, being contented of what I’m given and do whatever I can in harmony to my own limitations and strengths. Above all, I trust God and I see His light in the real world on all His creations, on all people and things that I come to live with in my every day existence :)
Anyway, the worker handed me a green box this morning. He said it was outside the porch. I don’t usually go through the front door and so I missed my St. Patrick’s package from IZEA. Yey! That’s very sweet of them and I can't help but share my joy with you guys.
Inside were St. Patrick’s Day shirt, some fun green swag, Blu Frog Energy Drink (energy drink loaded with Vitamins). Yes, I’m feeling lucky!
If you're not familiar with IZEA, check it out here. I had earned 2 grand from writing reviews:) Sound familiar? In a way, they had helped me save some money to buy some canned goods and rice to send to the Philippines.
