It’s been some time almost a year but I am finally in a place where the comfort level of discussing worldly issues is necessary.
Current Events: Today, Labor Day – September 7, 2015
As we have all seen in the media’s horrific image of a beautiful angel ‘sleeping in the sand,’ a vivid photograph that will forever be in archives of our time, the thought of it just breaks my heart. This father and his family were seeking refuge and he was determined to do what ever it took to get his treasured loved ones to safety. As a parent (which I am not yet) wouldn’t you do the same for your children? Let’s be real, at the drop of a dime you would protect your family or loved ones at any cost.
The truth behind my story begins here, where migrating and immigration is now more than ever a world discussion for so many innocent lives. In a very similar type of way my parents also migrants (me included), successfully did the same thing for my brother and I, when we migrated from Trinidad to Canada and then eventually to the United States, Stamford, Connecticut to be exact!
Leaving Trinidad at the age of six I only remember very specific things like the house I was born into in Marabella, I dreamt of the time when we could finally go back. I think about my grandparents (rest their souls) having to leave Trinidad and say goodbye I thought we were just taking a trip but as a child I had no idea this would eventually be the most drastic change in my life forever or at least until the age of 32. Like this sweet little baby my brother and I were very young but instead of crossing rough ocean waters we traveled by plane to Toronto’s Pearson International and then by train to Grand Central in New York City.
Guess you can say I’ve come a very long way but the truth is this journey is one that only God and the Universe had control of, and I truly believe that everything that has taken place up to now is for a purpose bigger than I could ever imagine. Looking back on my life and I want to only remember the happy things but honestly writing about My Journey is part of the healing process that I have to Fearlessly conquer.
Different adventures in my life have begun, since my last post Wings to Fly Granted so many changes and challenges have occurred. I just realized after re-reading this post that my writing manifested great things into my universe. World events have provoked a spark within me that has triggered the flow of creating and expressing my views on a very delicate topic.
Sending my positive vibes and well wishes to all the millions of people migrating daily to get to a safe, happy place, to start living their dreams for themselves and their children. After reading this, I hope you remember that the path you took to get to where you are now is exactly what was supposed to happen for your growth and the divine journey you have to make for your time on this earth. Everything happens for a reason.
Have an Awesome Week! :)
