I am establishing a life of giving.
I am putting aside my pride and my ego and asking for help. My palms are sweating as this is by far the craziest thing I have ever done.
It may cause some gossiping it may lose me friends but I have decided I have one life only and one chance to live it as fully as possible. If doing something out of the ordinary can help me achieve this it is a “risk” I am more than willing to take. “Risk” because I believe that you never risk anything by asking.
I am creating a sponsor me page. It is to allow me to focus on my passions and calling without worrying about where the finances are going to come from.
I want to help people wherever and whenever I like anywhere in the world. Help teachers in Malawi, hurricane victims, help my friends, family and people I meet along the way. This is a dream of mine. I want to help myself achieve all of my biggest goals and in the process help others do the same. I need sponsorship for my website, for time, for transport, government document costs, to support myself while I focus my attention on studying and publishing my books and blogging and or vlogging about what the sponsorship is doing in my life. Sponsorship for education along the way. Sponsorship for a Pilot's course, sailing course, psychology course as well as electric and plumbing courses.
I studied to be a teacher and I loved teaching. I hated the life I created of working long hours without any financial freedom to barely make ends meet at the end of the month. I do not believe this is really living. I then had the most amazing opportunity to go work on a yacht. I made more than 6x my salary and experienced more of life than I ever dreamed I would. I cleared my debt. I did not however, find any meaning or passion in my daily work and I sacrificed moments that I will never get back for the sake of my job, one being my twin sister's wedding.
I then decided to pursue avenues for making money online. Being able to do that would allow me the freedom to work from anywhere in the world. Something that has caught me off guard and created a sticky financial situation for myself. I aim at making money being me and doing the things that I love. I love helping people. I love travelling. I would love to help others to travel, like my dad who has never been overseas or like so many others who have never even seen the ocean! I love adventures and sharing them with the world. I see so many people sponsored for doing what they love and I am taking the biggest chance I ever have in my life to achieve that too. I love taking photos, meeting new people discovering new things, foods and places. I love children and nature and life so much. I want to share my successes and failures my losses and triumphs my fears and my hopes and my life with people around me. I want to give others hope and joy and peace.
How often do people dream of winning a jackpot that would change their lives. I am asking for the jackpot and I want to share with the world what I do with it. I know a little help goes a long way. Help me help myself and by doing so spreading help to so many others. By age 33 I hope to have a family and a home and a dog. At 30 I am in debt looking at leaving people and places I love for the sake of money again. I want to be able to give my time to people I would rather be helping and not worry that I can’t because I can’t afford to. I want to earn through giving of me and my life to others with meaning and purpose and fun.
I hope I will not be criticized for this but instead that whoever this reaches and to those who know me that there will be understanding and that in your heart you will be able to relate to me. Crazy as I may be. This is it as scary as it is.
