He Made A Way Out Of Nothingness For Me. I rose up from the dead & realized that I would have missed out on an extraordinary life if I had died. I was 14 years old, so naive and expecting a child. I felt lost, alone and deeply hurt. I realized I had messed up big time and did not know what to do. I thought that leaving this world would be a relief for everybody, that it would spare a life of misery for the unborn child, that it would spare a life of shame for my family, it would spare me the humiliation and pain of being called names and told that because of what I did, I would never succeed in life and would be condemned to a life of suffering. I thought it was the ONLY way…To realize that it was not. There was another way, a better way.
And when I woke up On that hospital bed, I woke up with a strong sense of responsibility. I woke up with the realization that there was another way. I somehow knew deep inside of me that I was not alone and that God was with me. I heard a voice deep inside of me that told me “Eva, you will make it in life and you will bring up that child, trust me”. From that moment on, on that hospital bed, I rose up from the dead and decided to take 100% responsibility for my life. From that day forward, I took an oath and promised myself that even if I did not know how, I was going to turn my life around and make something out of nothing… And I did. I was only 14…If I managed to do it, you can do it too.
Why am I sharing this inspirational true life story with you ? Why am I sharing one of the darkest moments of my life with you?
- Firstly, because something in me is pushing me and inspiring me to go through with this.
- Secondly because I witnessed so many suicides around me, I felt that my story might show that out of no way, a way can be made. Sometimes, we reach a point where there seems to be no way out. We look for a shoulder to cry on, we look for a comforting word, we look for understanding, we are scared of the present and even more of the future, we see ourselves as a failure and a disappointment and decide to put an end to it. It becomes clearer and clearer that it is the only way…And yet, here I am today, against all odds, 23 years later, living an extraordinary life, feeling thankful to be alive, happily married to a wonderful man, mother to 3 beautiful daughters, successful in business and not about to settle for less. I am here to tell you that it is possible to get out of any situation and that as long as we breathe, we have what it takes to climb any mountain. He Made A Way Out of Nothingness For Me. He will do the same thing for you.
- Thirdly and lastly, I am sharing this with you because I now know that for us to fully engage in the present, embrace our true self, play our role in society, step into our greatness and enjoy a fulfilling balanced life, we have the personal obligation to bring out the shadows of the past and deal with them for good. We have the duty to give birth to our true self, to give our self a chance to become who he/she ought to be and to unleash our true potential.
I rose up from the dead & realized that I would have missed out on an extraordinary life if I had died. He Made A Way Out Of Nothingness For Me and today, I am living a life I would not even have dared to dream of. And yet, it is my amazing reality. Today I am in a position that allows me to be the leader I want to be, to be the entrepreneur I want to be, to be the strong, caring, empowering woman I want to be and I will not stop until the clock stops ticking.

I went from a state of nothingness to a state of fulfillment. He Made a Way Out Of Nothingness For Me. I have made peace with the 14 year-old I was who tried to commit suicide and thought that running away was the solution to her problem. I forgave her just like God forgave me. I fully embrace my life and will keep on moving forward as long as I have the gift of life. It may sound cliché but whatever you may be going through, you must know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that in the ring of life, you will reign in love and overcome any obstacle you might be facing. You have greatness within you. It is time for you to step into your greatness. It is time for you to deal with your shadows and to play your positive role in society.
I leave you with this food for thought : What is your role in society ? How can you make things better for your ‘self’ and for your community ? It starts with you before it has an impact on the society.
Be blessed always,
