First of all, a big thank you and welcome for being here – Body, Mind & Spirit Bazar Website.
I was born in 1977 and grew up during the 15+ year-long Mozambican political cold war and every possible limitation attached to it such as poverty, hunger, and death to soo many. My question about the meaning of life began 29 years ago when I lost my father to suicide, just before the end of the civil war, the (GPA) General Peace Agreement between the political parties Frelimo and Renamo, Oct 1992, and nothing then, made any sense to me. My first job in 1993 came next, and again another upside-down turn, when I lost someone really dear to my heart, the most loving and caring being, to Leukemia- Sara (my cousin)
At 20 I was married, and as time went by, 4 children, and another loss, my baby. Needless to say, it was an experience and a half;
At 34 a divorce and since navigating through the obstacles, experiences, and learning. The hardest but by far the most rewarding of all challenges has been Motherhood. My children my blessings.
My life is enriched with ” Phantabulous” ordeals, movie-like, yet far from being the hardest of all lives, ‘I look around me and thank heavens for my fabulous mother, my beautiful children, family, and friends …in short, I am beyond grateful I’ve made it this far and somewhat sane, lol.
What a ride I must say, this is me, pleased to meet you.
Just the way you are
You don’t need to be a superstar.
Don’t think you need to be someone else,
Because you brighten up this world by just being yourself. Just the sparkle in your eyes,
And that amazing smile.
Can make someone feel joyful,
And things are so wonderful. Even when you say hello,
The mood becomes mellow.
Being yourself is cool,
It isn’t about being who you’re not and acting like a fool. You all make me feel alive,
Even when I seem to have lost my light.
You make it come through,
By just being you! People like you make this world worth living in,
With all the laughter you bring.
Just the way you are,
Makes everything much better by Nell
