We Can Be Taught

We Can Be Taught

I have been on my own since I was 17 years old, that also was when I had my first child. It isn’t an experience that I’m proud of. Although I would want that same child, I wish I had waited until I was older. But the destiny of our lives is already predicted by a higher power. So I survived the early motherhood, and even learned my strength at an early age. I put aside all teen activity that didn’t include my son, and instead involved him in every aspect of my life. As I adapted to a routine on a daily basis, it started to become fun and easy. It was hard, I was still in high school in Brooklyn, N.Y. And had a studio apt. On Prospect Ave. in the Bronx. I graduated high school with a 4.0 average and attended college on an academic scholarship. Strength, that’s what the experience taught me, and endurance . It moulded me into the serious minded adult that I am today, I am no where near perfect, and still make mistakes as a Mother, but I keep faced forward.
I have through the years learned from my children, not to be harsh in punishment, they are in titled to mistakes also. To be there when they fall or mess up, as my sister was there for me. And to know when to let go, I chose the path of my life so I can’t live precariously through there’s. I,though not wanting to toot my own horn, am very proud of the way my life turned out. It could not have been possible without that Higher Power and strength. It also taught me to give credit where credit is due. Thank you GOD.
