When the world seemed so perfect; family, friends, career. Life tries to mock us with unimaginable things which will happen in just a blink of an eye. Never did I think that the life I am living on will turn out to be the life I never imagined it to be. I was a happy woman who always thinks that “Youth is a state of mind”. Working as a hair designer is something that I wanted to do aside from taking care of my dying husband and my kids. I always do things in accordance to my faith in God. However, my life changed after being admitted to having a brain aneurysm, I thought that I would lose my eyesight because of it, just like my sister. But I experienced more painful and most depressing – “A man-made stroke”. I questioned God, I lost faith to him and also to humanity after experiencing the bottom rock of life. The irony of life has been chasing after me, indeed. As I started to move forward from all the pain my life has had. A piece of very sad and painful news – I didn’t see coming, my sister Barbara, died because of a heart attack. Everyone was mourning, I was anxious and felt all the pain that has been lurking in my heart. I believe that people will not only learn out from direct experience but also from the experiences of others. I don’t want people to go through the portal of pain and uncertainties to learn. This story; My Story is a piece of medicine that will help readers accept that everything happens for a reason: feel the pain, cry like a wolf, start to move forward, learn from those experiences, smile like nothing happened, praise the Lord with all your heart and expect that something might happen in just a blink of an eye.
