Last night I spoke to my best friend from Puerto Rico. We shared about how the life paths my cousin and her niece have taken, who were born two months apart, are very different. It’s been 13 years since I last saw her niece, and she’s made a successful life for herself. Had my cousin Brittany held more confidence in her abilities to succeed in school, her life path would have taken a similar, positive turn to Christine’s.
I’m going to call my friend again on Saturday. It will be her birthday on that day. Her goal is to head out to the casino, so hopefully she can achieve her goal this weekend.
