About the Author
I believe in believing in something, anything. I believe that life is based on contradictions and that everything we face is situational. I believe in adventures and being a collector of experiences. I believe in forever love, superstitions, the fact that rules are meant to be broken and that the key to success is to be livin' the dream ... and that involves -
SACRIFICE. THE GRIND. HUMILITY. SMALL VICTORIES. HAPPINESS.
Let me fill you in on the background to my madness. My dad, the greatest dad of all time, passed away when I was 21 years old. He was a best friend and a mentor to me. Now, this portion of my life doesn't define me. Instead, it has molded me into the woman that I am today. It has knocked me off my feet, put me at my worst and has also pleasantly surprised me by giving me the perspective to make me my best. It has evolved, matured, changed and motivated me to try and conquer the world. By conquering the world I mean making it a better place for you and I me and putting a positive light into people's lives.
"How can one girl conquer the world?" you ask.? Well shit, I'm asking myself that exact same question. I'm quite aware this will not be easy, but I plan to make it happen anyway. How? Aspiring to inspire all walks of life, all shapes, all colors, all sizes, all ages. Helping people understand that our struggles are what mold us into becoming better human beings. Life happens, shit happens, but what you do next is up to you.
My goals - in this book, and in my life - are to give you content (i.e., information) that you can relate to. I hope, as you read on, you can hear an honest- to- goodness real person talking to you. A gal just trying to give perspectives on real life. Because there ain't nothin fake about what we go through on the daily. I want to challenge your mind, and in turn, for you to challenge mine. I love a good challenge. I'm here to give you a spark, maybe even a firework blast of hope, inspiration, and a sense of gratefulness. This is your personal invitation to my livin' the dream party. Believe me, it's a party worth attending. Join me for the party of a lifetime.
