“I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.” ~ Dalai Lama
Posted this image after my family survived the flash flood that almost wiped out everything we have, including our home last June 29, 2011. We survived on hope and faith that things will get better for us.

UPDATE: One year later, I have revisited this post and remember the kindness of our community, of everyone trying to reach out and help. We have started all over again and the journey is still long, but moving out into a better home was worth the pain and stress endured. This was how I got immersed in creating an inspirational and motivational blog for everyone to learn lessons from. I have always been a positive person, and each downfall I’ve gotten are lessons learned about life, not a way for me to put blame on others. One day soon, I will be able to write about the pain and experience with more detail than I ever did.
