Sometimes I think of when I started to genuinely feel better about myself was in my early 30s. I had quite a few successes in my 30s. I will be turning forty early next year and I take my life seriously. I want to put my best face and foot forward. I want to also be helpful to my family and friends too. I offer support to friends and I get support from friends too. It’s always nice for a friend to help me out with something and also wish me a happy birthday on my birthday every January. I feel so much less alone because I connected with a lot of my family and friends on Facebook. The moment I saw my sister Alison she told me “Ayesha you always had a gift with literacy”. It was such a nice thing for Alison to say. My sister Alison is actually a literacy coach and so is my aunt Kay my mom’s sister.
