“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
― Maya Angelou
Haven’t blogged in a while so here goes… With everything going on in my personal, educational, and professional life… I felt that I’ve lost sight on some things along the way. I have been missing my family more than usual lately and it makes me sad. Not seeing them as often makes the moments that I actually get to spend with them that much more comforting and precious. It saddens me and brings me down to tears when the health of a loved one continues to deteriorate…knowing that there is nothing I can do about it but just be there as much as I can. This thing that I have loved so much that I made it my life at one point isn’t the same thing anymore. It made me extremely happy and has aided my growth as a leader and all I ever wanted was for it to touch everyone as much as it touched me. Other people’s hands are holding the reigns to this and has steered it in a different direction where they have lost sight of the greater destination. It wasn’t until today, where a dear friend of mine commemorated her 1 year anniversary with this organization that I’ve realized that all the hard work I put into the little details doesn’t matter anymore. I no longer regret the sacrifices I made. As long as I know it has reached at least one person…I am satisfied and happy.
It has just been an extremely hard journey and it only continues to get harder to get through but I will make it my mission to help people feel better. It doesn’t matter what I say or do. I just would like to touch the hearts and the lives of my family, friends, and maybe some strangers along the way.
