Why Worry?


“Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. All it does is steal your joy and keep you very busy doing nothing.” - Unknown


All of my life..

I watched my mom struggle to pay bills.

I watched my mom struggle to raise her 3 children & her mom's three youngest children.

I watched my mom stuggle to keep clothes on our back.

I watched my mom struggle to keep the lights on.

I watched my mom in abusive relationships. They left me feeling hopeless as a little boy, I couldn't help her.

I watched my mom try to be strong and to never let me see that she was struggling. 

Why worry mom? I'm going to college to give you a better life. I'm going to college so that I can have a better life. I got you mom. Don't worry!
