A special place where I can go and find peace and refuge is at the park by my house. I can sit on a rock and look at nature and just think about my future and ideas about how to manage my life and make decisions.

I don't think it's possible to live by only working for a day or two because that doesn't give us enough money to not only buy food but also to pay all sort of bills. For example, I work 4 days a week and I get paid $7.42 an hour so I would earn approximately $180 in two weeks.

Why am I living in this world? All these questions and more yet I have no response to. I can see myself having a job that pays well and living with my husband and our 2 kids. I want to be a role model for someone, someone who would look up to meÃ¢ÂÂ¦more as I want to change somebody's life. Am I living my life simply? No. Am I living it deeply? Somewhat yes. I don'
