Anonymous asked: What country did you travel to?
I haven’t traveled to another country since I was 14. That was the first and only time I ever did. I went to Nassau, Bahamas… And Cozumel, Mexico.
About death. Not specifically about dying. But the aftermath of it. I know, I’m young… Not that age matters with death. But thinking about it makes me want to plan where my belongings should go after. Should I die young. I’m not married. I’m single. I have no kids. And I have yet to meet anyone that has made me want to share my belongings with them in that way. At least not yet. Not to that level.
But even though I am only 26 and I am single.. I think I should make a Will or a Trust. So that my things can be inherited by those I care about. Things like, my house if I buy one this upcoming month of December or in January. My car and my bank accounts. I’d like my sister Monica to inherit everything I’ve worked so hard for. Because I know that she has a good heart. And that what money I have would go to good things through her. And I know she’d help distribute care to my best friends. I’d want my sister and my best friends to have everything.

I’m thankful for all of these first times. Because every time I experience them again, I always think of the people I experienced it with first. All of which were very positive courteous experiences that helped me grow in some way. And all these experiences and the people I experienced them with, made me a better person. I am very lucky to have had all of these experiences.
I knew the possibilities and I knew the risks. But I figured… If I ever were to lose my job for something… It was going to be right there and it was going to be for a good cause. If I would have lost it right there.. I would have been proud because it would have been worth every second of my being.
I had been thinking about it all month… Then finally I walked upstairs to the executive floor and asked the one I talk to most, if she could please help me fund money for my friend with brain cancer. And although I know she’s a good person, I still had some doubt. Because my company has a “No soliciting” policy. But! She said yes!!! She’d be happy to help! And to ask others to help! And I can’t get fired, because whatever an executive member says, goes!
I had never been so happy and grateful in my life! I feel so lucky that I work with humble people!
Trust me when I say that this post has absolutely nothing to do with bragging. But I do hope that it caught your attention. So please keep reading… If you know me, then you know that I dedicate myself to the art of giving. I pay for random people I’ve never met in line at Starbucks, to help make their day a little smoother. I buy food for the homeless. I do walks and marathons to raise money for people I don’t know, to help them fight things like AIDS and Cancer, in hopes that one day, research will provide this world with a cure…. As many of you know… One of my best friends is fighting a rare type of Cancer and has a brain tumor. I found out after I landed at the airport from a business trip. That day… I didn’t even sleep. I started driving straight to the hospital and even stopped and helped save someone from a major car accident on the way. I do these things not because I expect something back, but because I just feel that it’s the right thing to do and because I want to. And now I want to help my best friend and her family as much as I can. I believe in taking the initiative and leading by example. So today I went to the bank and withdrew the overtime portion of my paycheck to give to my best friend and her family. And I’m going to continue to donate parts of my income to them. I’m not the type to ask for help and I’m not the type to complain. But right now I know I need help! I want to cause a domino effect. I’m not telling you all what to do with your money or how to invest your time. I’m just asking that you all help me help one of my best friends and her family. I don’t care if you give $1. I don’t care if you don’t donate any money at all. I’m just asking that you repost the link in my bio… Or that you repost my previous photo with the link. Post it anywhere you see beneficial. Because even if you can’t afford to donate.. You can still help by helping us spread the info to others who can afford to contribute. Or maybe some remarkable doctor/researcher will see it! Just because you can’t afford to give, doesn’t mean you can’t help at all. So can you guys please help me with this?

All donations no matter the size, goes to a good cause. Every dollar makes a difference. Even if you cannot donate, send her good vibes and please spread the word. We can do this! Thank you so much to those who have contributed! It is greatly appreciated 🙏. Much love!
