Life lesson #1

Always make amendments with your mother. Don’t ever not argue but always say sorry.  For your mother has demons you will never know about and has lost battles that have gone unspoken. She has given you life when she could taken it away and she loved you before she knew you. I am blessed to have a mother that has never left my side from my days (years!) as a troubled youth to me coming out as a lesbian. She continues to be my ventilator through every emergency. She has saved me from myself and the bitterness in this world. God I love her. If you do anything today, buy her flowers, pick some flowers, make a card, but a card, get her a new book, pick up a used book, write her a letter, call her and say thank you. Just do something. Loving yourself means loving your own. #showingmyappreciation

This is my story of finding my ikigai. Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ee-ki-ɡU]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". According to the Japanese, everyone has a hidden ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.
