Proud of you Viking!  Keep up the good work!

Despite my rant on Monday about the decrease in blog views, the followers number just keeps on rising. I absolutely love you all! I truly hope I never get used to this. As I said before, a book giveaway is coming at 1000! Thank you! – Viking

I change my theme yesterday.  I looked at all the themes in the showcase and wanted something versatile.  Simple yet can be used to inspire.  It had it all and my social links were intact (I checked today and gave a sigh of relief).

Although My Journey Through Life was my origins blog.  This one is my present and future.  It became my primary.  I felt guilty leaving mahaleta, but I knew she would always be a part of me.

Yes I work hard to keep up with technology.  I can’t use living off the grid as my excuse for not writing.  The WP app would look at me from my laptop asking for another chance.  When it logged in quicker than before both Ivy the iPhone and I were excited.  I saw it as a sign to not let my hopes get pushed into the pit.

I want to thank you all for the comments and feedback.  I hope to be just warming up my creative juices.

I brought my WP app back.


I realized how much I missed reading other bloggers.  I missed being able to share posts that I thought other people might like.  Lately the joy of life disappeared and left behind a dark cloud.  That is not me.  Even in tough situations I found a bit of something to smile about.  The thought of not blogging broke my heart.  How can you silence a single voice?  How can you flicker out a flame?  No I can hide and feel the emptiness push the air out of me.  You got to be careful what you say.  Have I done anything wrong, but take care of me?  I realized this week that my heart needed that extra beat again.  I got music added to my music library that gave me hope that things will change.  Yes things seem dismal and I want to cover the blanket over my head.  I look in the faces of people searching for a flicker of life.  If I can’t see it the darkness says see it’s not there.  I have to overcome this and not be swallowed by the dramatic pit.

Q: Which came first Starting Over in 2013 or My Journey through Life?


Answer: My Journey Through Life

It all started with a dream to write.  I love reading books and wonder if I can be the next Louisa May Alcott.  After rereading Little Women I knew that was what I wanted.  To be the Jo March of a new generaation.  I wanted to inspire and motivate from my own life.

Since I had a lot of time on my hands I thought why not do something positive. Write and chronicle my healing story.  Inspire others going through the same problems I have in my life.  Shed a little light on mental health.

My Journey Through Life is the prequel and this is the primary tale of starting over.  It makes complete sense.  People want to know about living in Africa.  Okay here are pictures and ideas of my life.  It all started in Addis Ababa in 1979.

30+ years later here I am in the same country just a lot older.  I am learning how to cope in a third world country.  How to heal from emotional wounds.  How to accept my heritage even the sad things. Especially how to cope speaking broken Amharic when my English is spoken too fast.

I am a proud Ethiopian American and these are my stories and outlook on life.  Most importantly this is my legacy for my son.

Late night musing.


I want to apologize to the WP community. I am reteaching myself to reblog. So if I used any posts without putting an original link I am honestly sorry. I added survivor and blogger to my LinkedIn profile. Yes social media can be my downfall, but it will ultimately record my footsteps in this life. I go by Molly S. Negash these days with tribute to my culture. I am licking my wounds and getting back on my feet. I am going back to basics with my growing support system behind me.  My Gravatar profile is updated with pics of me. I feel like a phenix going up in the air.  ☺️
