I am writing this post in memorial of my mother, someone whom I really proud of how strong she was battling with life, relationship and leukemia. Until the day she leave me, she was strong and persistent that she could get better.
She supported me since I was a child, teenager and when I grew up, every single decision of mine, she has no objection. She endlessly care for me till before she passed away. I lost her to cancer, a disease I have no control over its complication and how fast it spread. Even supplements couldn't help. She was proud of having me as a daughter but I did nothing for her. At home, you see my belonging was well organized. She keep it so neat and tidy.
Her last wishes is for me to take care of myself and visit my family once a while.
Everything in the world we live, there is nothing called fair. Job that we do, wages that we earn, lifestyles that we have and health -they aren't equal.
There is no secret formula that one can follow to reach equality. The amount of work that you do is not indicative of your achievement. Some people have better health than others, better skills than others etc.
All we got to do is to do what you want in life, right now and don't wait because you never knew something unfair going to happen and when it happens, you don't want to regret that you never live it before.
I made a lot of mistakes focusing on school and career but I am different now because a single person that is suffering from unfairness that I didn't knew anyone to blame. I cannot do anything to remove the unfairness but just hopeful to reverse the unfairness. This unfairness is likely stay with her for the rest of her life.
