In 1973, I entered the world in Lebanon, claiming the title of the sixth and final child in my family. The perks of being the youngest? I was showered with love and affection from my parents and older siblings.
At the innocent age of three, I found myself basking in the joys of summer at my grandparents' house in our quaint village. One day, as I ventured out from the back door, I encountered a distant cousin. In our childhood exuberance, we hatched a plan to play a game of robbers and cops, intending to make it as authentic as possible.
Our makeshift weapons were crafted with earnest creativity. We fashioned a bow from a green branch, attaching a fishing line from end to end. For the arrow, we sought out a straight stick, affixing a cola bottle cap to its tip, cleverly twisted to a point. The stage was set, and I, the chosen robber, stood in the line of aim. Little did we know, that laughter would soon be replaced with unforeseen consequences.
As he released the arrow, time seemed to slow down. Standing there innocently, I wondered if his handmade bow could even hit any part of my body. But life, unpredictable as ever, had different plans. he arrow struck my face, taking my right eye — an unforeseen turn of events. I lost my eyesight and my look, leaving a lasting impact on my life!
Life, after all, has a way of throwing unexpected challenges at us. Anyone can be hit at any point in their life with adversity that leaves a lasting impact. The crucial question that arises is how to deal with it. Can we adapt? Can we cope? Can we bounce back, regain our footing, and move forward?
These questions became the cornerstone of my journey and the essence of my speaking engagements. I delve into the realm of resilience and the inherent power within each of us to overcome hardships — be they physical, emotional, personal, or work-related. I share insights on how to empower the elements of resilience, guiding you to move forward in your own life.
