My name is Lorie. I was born in Port-de-Paix, Haiti, moved to the US at the age of 11 and I have been living in Florida since (Yes I would love to venture out and see the world but I haven’t had that opportunity yet).
For a 25 year old, I have to say I have accomplished a lot. I have a master’s degree, my own apartment, my own car and a steady job. However, I have been unhappy for a very long time. Why you may wonder…because I wanted so much more for myself. At 25, I saw myself traveling, doing charity work, living debt free; having a great career, if not married planning my wedding lol. Sadly, I haven’t had a chance to accomplish some of my goals…yet.
You see, I have big dreams and I feel like at 25 I could have done so much more. I’ve been living too confortable, so confortable that I’ve forgotten about my dreams, my wants, my desires, my true purpose in life.
I don’t want to use the term “woke” as so many people are claiming they are “woke” or “conscious” these days, but my eyes are definitely open now. I was blinded, I was caught up in a crowd full of negative people and people with no dreams, no ambition in life, that I was beginning to live my life like them. You are definitely the company you keep!
Our time on this earth is limited but it’s never too late to start living. So as of January 2017, I have decided to start this journey in fulfilling my dreams and finding my purpose in life… to reach my full potential. So I am starting this blog because I love to write and because I would love to share my experiences with others. I’m sure there are a few people out there who can relate to me. So I am starting this blog to share my journey with you all and hopefully, I can motivate you to start your journey also (what ever it may be).
