ARE DEFEATS NECESSARY?

ARE DEFEATS NECESSARY?

May had been quite the draining month. It trickled slightly into June. I’m glad I’m getting back my momentum. I tend to bite more than I can chew and I end up stretching myself too thin and being overly overwhelmed. I’m also a perfectionist on all levels. I’m slowly learning and embracing that what’s done is better than perfect. I don’t give myself room to make mistakes and when I do, I really end up beating myself over it for a while.

Uncovering long buried dreams.

When I first landed in Hargeisa, I was so oblivious of the challenges and endless possibilities that I was going to encounter. Within the first week, I was sure I wanted to return home.

Today is a big deal! My son is 3 years old! How did time go by so fast? I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that he’s about to leave the nest soon. My goal has always been to raise a strong and compassionate man. Reflecting on his three years, and just like any other parent, there has been some very high-highs and low-lows. The good outweighs the bad πŸ™‚ It’s a huge honor to be a parent. It takes courage to trust the journey and raising my son has been quite fulfilling πŸ™‚
