I am a few days late with @iammelwells@theselflovesummit#adventchallenge but I loved it so much last year I wanted to do it again. .
Today is Day 8 and it's to do something to work towards your dreams. I am proud to say I founded a non-profit, @isaacs_angels , and yesterday was my official launch! .
For years I was uncertain about the direction of my life and why k wasn't truly "happy". I wanted to be like everyone else and just 👏🏾 SIT 👏🏾THE👏🏾HELL👏🏾DOWN! I thought something was wrong with me! No matter how hard I tried to stay home and "be serious", "get a real career", "be an adult", "get a real job", "take life serious", I just couldn't shut this nagging voice in my head that I wasn't quite done and this was something I HAD to do. .
The best way I can describe it is like when Elsa from @disneyfrozen kept hearing that siren and she tried to ignore it until it became too much and SHE HAD to go find it. THAT 👏🏾 WAS 👏🏾 ME! For 4 years I attempted to block out this feeling until GOD finally revealed his purpose for my life. He knew what I didn't and finally let me in on his plan two weeks ago when I literally woke up and said "I Understand".
I wanted to honor my son, my guardian angel, through my work by spreading love and light everywhere I go. In ten days, that little boy changed me and made me into a person I never thought I would become. With @isaacs_angels , my mission is to bridge cultures and communites together through love, language, and laughter by diversifying travel and community-service abroad. The best part is I get to take kids from communities just like where I grew up and sponsor them to go abroad! These kids haven't even been to downtown Chicago, let alone outside their city. To be able to share my experiences and travel with then is my life's work and mission. .
I am blessed I have clarity and looking forward to 2020!
