you can't give up

Hello girls

These days I got a little frustrated... I was applying to college in the USA (still trying to live my dream life), but by the time I was looking at the documentation to complete the application, I unfortunately had to stop. As I am Brazilian, all the fees in dollars that I would have to pay were very expensive. So it wasn't this time... I'm going to try to get a job (which is really hard around here) to make enough money to at least try to get into that college and maybe next year when applications open again I'll be able to apply. So despite the bad News today I don't just come with it, but with the positivity of hope. We have to try to be the best like that, no matter how big or small the problem, there is no perfect life no matter how beautiful so we have to believe that one hour will happen if it has to. I was very disappointed, but we cannot stop at the first unforeseen event. I'm so grateful to have you here so I can tell you. You are all amazing women. <3 <3

Thank you Flavi for considering World Pulse to share your story of disappointment, and hope.
Love the picture with the map. I grew up in Michigan, and that area was a stomping ground for me, though you may be in canada? icy winters, humid hot summers, with huge mosquitoes in that area.

Hi FLAVI! I'm so happy you're sharing!! It's so important for us as women to have places where we can say what we're feeling. Please remember that it's OK to feel the way you do. If you feel tired and sad, that's fine. We understand. And we have felt like that too. We are here for you. Don't give up, girl! Keep trying and working toward that dream. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Flavi having faith and hope is the best key to live. That's great and don't relent it.
Stay blessed
