On January 1st, 2017, I felt scared, lonely, and confused, my so-called “brilliant” future was no more feasible. So I started looking for something that would give me hope, and that’s how I began writing little encouraging messages to myself.

And although they were meant for me, I decided to share them.

When I started posting my little messages, I remembered my heart pounding in my chest, I was more terrified than thrilled, nonetheless. I posted them, because although, I am not qualified to give anybody advice, believe me, I am the first one to know that, I thought that maybe someone could benefit from them. Someone who might be going through a rough time would see them and know they were not alone.

And to my surprise, they were well received. People would leave lovely and helpful comments, like them, and share them.

And “something” started waking up inside me.

And “that” something wanted more from words, and that’s how Positive thinking to learn English and Stingy were born. And life started again for me.

But nothing, absolutely nothing would have been possible without you, your likes, comments and encouragement, thank you so much for being so supportive, kind and understanding.

You are all making the difference in my life and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you for a great 2017, I wish you all a blessed 2018 full of love and happiness.
