It’s been six years since I have lost my mother to a rare neurological disease. Some days are easier than others.
However, the silver lining to this story is that although she may no longer be here with me that does not mean that I cannot celebrate the legacy that she left behind.
It is because of her values and strong spirit that I choose to become a fearless woman today. A woman who challenges the status quo, a woman who redefines what a Latina woman is, and a woman who will find a way to achieve her goals even though the odds may be against her.
Essentially, these tough times help you see and acknowledge the important things that really truly matter in life. And even after the storm has passed we may have to take some time to reflect and reevaluate our lives.
However, don’t forget your love ones and always be grateful to have them around.
