I am coming back to my online persona. I am letting Sara say things that shouldn’t be silent anymore. I was pro-disabled rights and now more than ever. I was someone that was emotionally wounded and now I am recovering. I surround myself with people who want me to achieve my goals. I am learning how to cook, bake, and genuinely love myself again. For a long time I didn’t realize who I was and wanted to be. I just wanted to keep up with my peers and others in my life.
It has taken me this long to want to be myself whatever that might be. I got to tell you starting over is tough. But one of my best liked posts was about my Training ground in my native land. Now I am in my next step trying to relearn everything I couldn’t understand in the past.
I have got to do this not only for myself… but also for my son. He is the reason I fight so hard with myself to make a difference for him and others just like him. I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet… but trust me its on my list of must sees. I did though see Rouge One and felt empowered afterwards. Yes I can became my motto in life. Don’t give up became my mantra.
So I will keep up these online blogs to let my fans know that yes Molly/Sara is still standing.
I never realized how much I have changed other peoples life. Just getting up and getting myself going is a challenge sometimes. It wasn’t until my friend brought it to my attention that I was a strong woman who has lived an extrodinary life.
Last year I began a journal that I wanted to post in the future. It was a story to explain how I have dealt with so many challenges and yet haven’t totally given up yet. It was this time last year that I was plugging along and getting the words out before my memory would fog up again from the S&A (stress and anxiety) of my situation.
I was so excited because I wanted to finally explain why I was the way I was. Trust me when I say growing up in a bicultural world was like taking a roller coaster ride with a side of the scary stuff. In junior high I felt like crap because I was so different. It never really occurred to be I was different from everyone else. Which is why I go by Molly and not Mahlet. That’s right my full name is Mahlet Sebhat. I am a very unique person who has lived an even more unique life.
My dream someday is to write a story and publish it. Weather its chapters of my life or just a full on memoir I haven’t decided yet. But one thing I know for sure. My blogs are my way of standing up for myself. Also a bread trail for my son to someday find me when he is ready and curious. That’s right I am a mother in her 30s.
I hope you enjoy these blogs. I hope that you can look up my Facebook page and show support with a like or follow. See this is my therapy in recovering from life. My words are my own unless I share others works. I am @SaraMahlet on Twitter and also on my Facebook Page. Look for Sara Gamachu, blogger. That’s me! I am also planning to share some of the pictures that I took from my travels in Ethiopia. It will be on my page also in a nice album.
So from me to you have a wonderful and safe 2018!
