One Step At The Time...,

 As we commemorate July 1st, 2018 the 155th year of the abolition of slavery on Curacao where I come from, I want to take a moment and remember my own time in prison and the way it impacted my life and the one of my love ones.

I'm also thankful for the opportunity I had to work as a tourist guide on my Island but especially at Plantation House Knip where the Slave Revolution of 1795 started. Inside the Museum I was able to feel the pain of those who where enslaved.

If you are or went through: Homelessness, Prison Time, Domestic Violence, Injustice, Low Self-esteem, Divorce, Loss of love ones, PTSD, Severe Depression, Custody Battle, Suicidal thoughts, Denial, and Shame like me,  There Is HOPE...! Don't do life alone..Keep moving forward...!

Dear Annadassa,
I can understand the pain you must have gone through. I am so happy that you have found hope because hope alone is what keeps us moving. I also find that hope works out in the end because it keeps us positive and away from self destructive thinking. Keep marching ahead, my sister.

Love and prayers
