From the last week of July.


Note: I was so close to trashing this post. I even had a difficult time titling it. Than my inner self said it’s okay to share this. People might actually get it. So here it is. Sara

Both my blogs might get more shorter portions. Personally, I felt awful when I couldn’t do huge detail like I wished. So, I decided short is better than none at all.
Then I realized when I changed my other blog to an even more simpler theme I got excited. It was a beauty and I was proud. To be honest I needed a break from Starting Over and decided to give My Journey Through Life a facelift with a grand opening. Ok that is my city girl side talking. 

Another thing I actually was very close to walking out on my Twitter account. Yes, I am so proud of networking than I realized people I thought were following me actually blocked me. Talk about a shove in the ego. Thankfully I talked myself out of it. I will just let people do the clicking and keep going.

For the folks who think I can puts stuff out when I can…. Guess what it doesn’t work that way. I have been trying to explain it without complaining. Consider me an artist with my words painting a bigger picture. I actually got a comment that described that. It made me feel pretty good.

On both blogs, I have expressed that I have been tense lately. I think that plus the cold weather caused my body to go on strike. It’s been pretty rough. I am just getting over a bug so I might seem extra spicy with my words or attitude. It was suggested that I write in the second person point of view. I felt kind of sad because a lot of the time I am putting myself in another person’s shoes and seeing the world from their point of view.

On my LinkedIn profile, I describe myself as a caregiver. It is true because my mom has Post-Polio Syndrome which has her slowing down a bit. Trust me the word disabled was not in our vocabulary except when parking the car, “Ooh there is a handicap spot!”

Being her helper is teaching me that sometimes you are judged by your appearance. Like for example in the West there are so many assistance for a person with a disability lifts for example to get them in and out of cars, buses, and other uses of transportation. Here in my native land we are lucky if there is a ramp that gets my mom’s wheelchair around without getting stuck. People literally stare at my mom whenever we go places possibly thinking “what are you doing here?” Is it really that unbelievable that a person in a wheelchair can go into a cafe? 

There are times I share things on Facebook because several people know I came on this trip to help my mom. I also use my blogs as a way to explain how I live from experience and action. I myself deal with my own situations differently from others my age. I was dealt this life that many others would run from.  

So, with that you can see how I want to give hope to others and inspire them to not give up. Trust me I know.


Until next time be a light in the darkness and help others in need.

My Journey Through Life can be a stepping stone to your Starting Over at whatever stage you are.

Facebook friends/followers:


Hi everybody!

Yes I am still here.  I haven’t dropped out of sight yet.  I tried to message people through WhatsApp but I could be doing it wrong.  I am improving my craft and healing.

I have tried getting online, but get that it’s taking too long to connect. So when the time comes I expect lots of notifications.

For those sending friend requests please understand I am not ignoring it.  For my relatives we are hanging tough and growing strong.  For my support group I am smiling and drinking tea and water.  For my former coworkers I am impressing people with my high-fi training.

All in all I am riding life’s roller coaster with the belt on tight.  I am not taking on too much that I can’t handle.  My feet are standing with just a few wobbles.

I would rather be a blessing than anything else.

I just want to let everyone know I am here.  Waving hello to each day. Hope to keep in touch one way or another.

For my closest friends of mine.


Laughter is a great medicine.

You gave that to me.

A listening ear during my hard times.

You gave that to me too.

I had 2 people give me their blessing to make this trip.

Do whatever it takes bring back our Molly.

So Jaime and Jenny this is for you.

Your words of comfort made me let go of the shame. I am still Molly one and the same.

Stress and Anxiety are my friends and enemies. But I have people hoping and praying that you will not overtake me. Even on my hardest days.

@SaraMahlet

People I want to thank for being on Team Molly.


Tina, you gave me chance to see what a good friend through the good, the bad, and ugly times. Plus you alowed me to be an auntie to 3 amazing kids who were looking out for me at my hardest time.

Chrisso, what can I say but that summer tutoring was a highlight of my childhood. If I can teach my son to spell Encyclopedia it would be a gift to you. IOU a toothy grin with my hair. 😉

Jaime, who knew that a overnight stay with some interresing  couples could lead to a friendship like ours. You keep fit gf!

Stacey, God knew I needed a smart friend like you. You have showered me with prayers and gave me inspiring verses in my time of need. Be joyful and the best mother to your family. Proverbs 31 describes you in every way. Love u sister.

Jennifer/Jenn: We have a history that time can tell. You gave me a hug when I needed it. You took me to a baseball game and my son lived it from the womb. After all these years we can still finish each others thoughts and sentences. Plus you gave me the boost to go back and face “S” even when I didn’t think I could. Brownies, Ivars, and Girl Scout cookies. Those are my best memories. MB 4ever my bestie.

Sharon, I would never forget you. We are two peas in a pod with a dash of ADD. Remember telling me get those job applications it’s time to make something out of your life? You took me to my birthing classes and made sure my son was to come out healthy. The baby shower with dinosaurs that made me grin. Apparently a new mommy sounded like them. What can I say but we got him back with my quiet, self controlled statement. It is Mahlet Sebhat please. You are my mirror to prove even ADD has its perks. Love you and thanks for the patience.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls: welcome to Lorenzo Dominic‘s birthday bash!

On Saturday, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her fiancéJionni LaValle invited close family and friends — including a few familiar faces from Jersey Shore — to join them under the big top to celebrate their son’s first birthday in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Centered around a circus theme, the fun fête offered up an assortment of traditional carnival treats including hot dogs and hamburgers, which guests noshed on in between palling around with furry friends from the Farm To You Revue petting zoo.

“I chose the circus theme because I feel it fits best for throwing a huge first birthday bash — you can have animals, games and prizes!” Polizzi, 25, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Long Road

It has been a long road I have been on.  The road to a point where I feel comfortable with myself.  Someday I will be able to talk more about it.  Now I just use songs to illustrate my life. Without my friends and family this would have been a bumpy road.  Several friends and I exchange music to help me get through this stage of my life.  Here are a few that really speak to me I hope you will enjoy them

Suprises


I have been juggling more things than usual. I have had a bad cough that I finally went to my doctor to see what was going on. I normally keep going til I feel better. Well guess what I was not feeling better. I have been feeling like I was coughing up a lung. If this had happened last year I would not even had gone to get it checked. You would be shocked at the cost of doctor visits. I am so glad I have some state assistance. Without it I would have been worse last year. I took a chance think about my son and I. I was not that lucky before. Everybody else came first and if I made time for me it was a spur moment. That is why I am trying to get back on the wagon of life. Trying to live healthy and take care the 2 most important people in my life…my son and I.  I am also excited to celebrate my birthday with those who love me. Its been a long journey, but I am taking it one step at a time. Have a great rest of the week everyone. I will write again as the days go by.
