From refugee to pop star, evangelist, entrepreneur and philanthropist
My Crazy, Heartbreaking, Glorious Life Journey
Most weeks, the Headspace newsletter drops on Friday mid-morning.
I planned to devote one video episode to telling my life journey in under 30 minutes. It took me longer to post primarily because it made me feel emotionally raw and conflicted.
Sharing my pain feels, well, painful. Sharing my sin feels shameful. Sharing my victories feels like I’m bragging. Sharing my faith feels preachy. Sharing my heart for the poor feel self-righteous. On the other hand, the treasure of what I’ve received on this journey is too precious not to share and too powerful not to help others with.
From refugee to pop-star, entrepreneur, philanthropist, evangelist. I would have never thought at the beginning of my journey the opportunities, obstacles and blessings I would receive.
Resistance is very real and authenticity takes courage. One of my ways to deal with this inevitable anxious wave is to press on and do the work, knowing that someone out there will find it helpful. Here it is, my life story in under 30 minutes. If any of it adds value, help me out in my anxious moment, and let me know in the comments section here or on the video itself.
