The Upbringing that Encircles Me- December 2018

Did you realize that your upbringing, your life choices, and various life events mold you into the person you become later in life?

This book is about my upbringing, my life choices, and the many events that shaped me into the person I am today.

Even with hardships and events like moving to a new country, changing religions, marriage, parenthood, miscarriage, death, divorce, co-parenting, and blended families we all have choices to make. We can see these events as negative and wallow or we can view all as an opportunity to be learned from; where one can grow both personally and professionally.

I have chosen to be positive, grateful, and see all the chaos or challenges as learning experiences.
Bad things sometimes happen to good people.

It is what you do with it all that matters!

I self-published this ebook on Amazon in December 2018. Available for $3.99.

Please note I am updating this book to include details about my recovery and healing process from suffering a concussion in October of 2018. It will also discuss contracting some viral infection in April 2020 and my recovery process while being followed by 3 medical professionals all trained as doctors.

Some Reviews:

“I was completely captivated from the first page to the last. This was one of the best stories that I had ever read. It felt like I was watching a movie that I couldn’t take my eyes off of. Each chapter made me feel extremely connected to the author’s journey and I could feel her passion for wanting to share this publication with the world. This was such a well-written masterpiece that was easy to read, perfect in length, and provided just the right balance of depth and details. This is a book that I will read over and over and would highly recommend it to others.”

“Each chapter corresponds to different stages in the life of the author, and as such, they overlap sometimes, although by no means being repetitive to the reader.
Even when the book is not a self-help one, you may use the many teachings the author has encountered in her journey, and that she brilliantly shares with us.
An easy-reading book, with sad tones at times, nostalgic ones at other times, but always deliciously optimistic, which you’ll want to read in one sitting.”

– Leonardo Tomas Cardillo

“The original, unconventional style of writing, in a raw and very open manner, is exactly why one should purchase this book. The writer takes the reader from some very dear memories of teenage years to the hardships life has thrown at her. She clearly voices her mind about standing against discrimination, as well as about her marital challenges and the struggles of raising her children by herself. She is in a shared custody arrangement with their father.
From car accidents she survived without a scratch, to moving out several times, to attempting a “direction shift” to witnessing many (various) cases of death.”
