It’s a fair question – why should you learn from me?
To answer this question, I need to share with you my story. Born in Jerusalem, under military occupation, my future was dark and hopeless since day 1. By the age of 6, I had already experienced dozens of nearby explosions, lost many friends to war, and, even went was exposed to several weeks of confinement where we didn’t even have water, food, nor electricity to survive. At the age of 9 years old, my father had his first heart attack. At the age of 13 years old, my mother discovered she had stage 3 breast cancer. At the age of 18, I fell in love for the first time in my life with a man who turned out to be a con-artist. He left me in the middle of Spain after breaking my heart, stealing my money, and, my belongings. At the age of 19 years, my family and I were put in exile from Palestine and we became stateless.
Life is tough. Sometimes it seems impossible to win. No matter how hard you try, life will always have unexpected circumstances which will give you many reasons to give up, to hide from the world, and, to once again, contemplate suicide.
Life is also surprisingly beautiful from within its darkness. With its many hardships, it has taught me to find strength when I believed it was the end. It has taught me to be optimistic even when I was at my lowest.
The truth is that happiness is a choice. You choose what you make of your life.
At the end of the day, experience is the best of all lessons. I can blabber on for paragraphs about how I studied psychology in university, or I can tell you that I have an expertise in life-coaching, I could also tell you that I have coached thousands of people to success and happiness…
However, the bottom point is this:
You have a choice to try this on, for you. Not because of me, but because you recognize you need a change, and, because what you have seen from me resonates with you. My words just touch you. Also, you trust that if I wear my smile every day and the name Bubbly, after all these difficult moments, it’s because I must know what truly works.
