Summer, oh summer!
Full of life, beauty, smiles, love, books, and sunbathing
That’s what summers are made of…
And of course, all those short excursions to the wonders of your beauty
The strolls along the beach
The hikes in the elegant mountains
The books to stimulate one’s mind
Summer, you’re a breath of fresh air
The song that arouse one’s soul
And gracefully rejuvenate communities
Love, laughter, and happiness are my summer reveries
On one dark night as I stood under a full moon reflecting on the trajectory of my life. A lightbulb went on in my head reminding me that in life every person goes through adversity, and it is up to each person to turn that adverse moment into a learning experience.
As I walk in the dark arrays of hardship, I know I have it in me to hold on to my dream and make it a reality, because I have tenacity and perseverance to succumb any trials of life. I do believe that I am very insightful in so many ways, I also realize that I have pretty much control of my own destiny, yes I do!
The sky is the limit and I will sail right to the top even when faced with any derailment, because I continue to believe in my great abilities to make things work.
I know that life is not guaranteed, it can be taken from me in any moment. I therefore, will not waste time admiring someone else’s dream, but I will live my life to the fullest and do the things I love and make this life of mine enjoyable.
Every step and decision I make going forth, is to make this life of mine filled with bountiful memories of joy and success. I am a soaring soul looking up the sky and realizing that I have so much potential and I can turn things around for myself and be that shining light in the sky, and maybe help someone realize that they too, can make it in life.
I recommend the best dose to a successful life is live, laugh, and love!
Open road, open mind, endless opportunities!
Each one of us determines his/her own destination. What is your destination?
You have the ability to use your full potential in order to arrive at your destination. I know you have the power to block-out all the negative noises that are ever present, and of course negativity is always louder than positive voices. Thus, it is important to stay alert and be mindful of all the little shortcuts that may appeal to the eye, and derail the meaningful journey you are on.
Remember, your life is an open road leading to your endless opportunities.
Don’t shy away from your own destiny, stare ahead and remain on the right track, because this road you are on is so beautiful. It is filled with so many rewarding and enriching opportunities.
It is worth investing your time and embark on the open road with an open mind, and in no time you will begin the seeds of your worth, those seeds are your endless opportunities.
What tools do you need to help you keep going?
Inner strength, drive, positive environs, perseverance, tactfulness, focus, hard work, energy, endless learning, and belief.
How do i define my life?
I can definitely say with conviction that every step I have taken has led me to where I am today.
People say life is full of “ups-and-downs,” well, I certainly agree. It is evident that when I look at my life and where I have come from, it is easy to just give up and dwell in my sorrows, but thats not the course I’m taking or leaving for my legacy.
Having this kind of outlook on life, has helped me look at failure and rejection with a different perspective, that is, a perspective of leverage. I have come to understand failure as a prerequisite of success. With that said, every person has got an obligation to either fight back with a bang by staying on your feet and taking a step of confidence or give up and lick your wounds.
In my life, I have fallen many times, I learned to pick myself up and faced life in all its ugly ways. I must confess, I’m still falling, but this is not going to stop me march towards my dreams, because no matter what kind of hurdles are in my way, I know I will eventually get there.
It takes perseverance, drive, focus, courage,persuasion, and hard work to get to where you want to be. And yes! it is not easy, it takes a strong minded person to overcome the hurdles of convenience and laziness.
For instance, my life, took me from Zambia, where most women are defined by marriage. I knew I was destined to do something different, but I had no idea and did not know where my life’s journey will end up to. Without giving up, my little steps of confidence landed me in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Without forgetting my core values, which are: perseverance, drive, focus, courage, belief and empathy, I testify that I’m beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.
Today I’m a college graduate from the University of Washington, with a bachelor’s degree in communications and social sciences. As I walked on 06/15/2013, I knew I was taking a step of confidence into a new chapter of my life, and now the sky is the limit.
I now believe that it is time to join hands with a reputable NGO to help the under privileged. This was the pledge I made, even when I had no idea how I was going to make a difference in the world, since I have the right tools I can do more and I’m so ready.
Finally I pledge to take a step of confidence to be a citizen of the world and join hands with a non governmental organization and make a difference.
