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.
