Sunday Blessings

Today lets try something different. I usually write 5 things that I am thankful for each day but as I was surfing BlogExplosion, I found BYBS through New York Nitty Gritty.

So here goes my first entry for Blog Your Blessings Sunday:

Growing up in sugar cane fields and in a secluded quiet neighborhood, our peaceful life had its turning point when my mom re-married. We moved to the city and I started school at a Catholic institution. To make the long story short, I was never really at ease with my step dad. (Those who have read my other blog, would know why) And alot of issues and struggles passed by during my adolescent life. I guess I was looking for a father image, somebody to hold on to as I was fragile inside but I tried to hide it as I display only my rebellious side. With alot of Men who passed by my life, (and I mean, not the normal rate from where I came from) heartaches made me stronger.

Now, I am living apart from them all and starting life anew. I started to realize how beautiful life can be if I would start looking more outside and less inside.

Like, hello, I am living in St. Croix and this is a place where some can only dream about and/or visit. Why, I should make the most out of it and to the least... be thankful for being here, living here and having the life that I had. As I follow my philosophy in life, gold only becomes gold after passing through fire. And now its my turn to shine.
