Day 2 of my 21 day implementation plan
I've been told time and time again that I have an intriguing life story and that I should tell it like it is! So here I am on Day 2 of my mission statement to devote an hour a day to writing telling it like it is. I am 42 years of age and am a Sagitarian. Born in Israel to two Morroccan immigrants who married in Israel and a sister to Maya and Abbey. My mother tongue is English as I myself became an immigrant at the age of 1.5 yrs when my parents moved to the United States from Israel. My immediate surrounding was a rather shabby neighborhood in Philadelphia of the early 1980's. My parents worked 7 days a week to earn a decent living and my sister and I were sent to a private religously Jewish school for a "proper education". So much for that. The education I received there until the age of 12 ignited a hidden passion in my soul. The study of bible and the wonders of G-d and his light are the essence of my being. I am most grateful to my parents for this decision. I was a loved student and put in my efforts where it counted. I was a spelling B freek and loved playing sports of all kinds; swimming, basketball, softball, dancing, tennis. I am grateful to my mother for providing me with the opportunity to discover the strength of my body through sports. My spiritual findings came much later after years of a very disturbing childhood as I witnessed violence in my own home. I became the gatekeeper and always wanted to keep anger and sadness out of the house so that everyone would stay "cool". But really this was what built my strength and resilence for years to come and I learned that a violent home is actually a choice we can make, even as kids. I built armor and layers of protection that became several extra pounds. As luck had it I am a healthy being in my core so I found ways to balance the issue over the years. Yet it will always be an "issue". It is my choice however to learn to love myself unconditionally and this is where the journey begins...
Stay tuned as I have many stories and lots of love to give
