Ann Dunham- A women behind the wall

[Inspiring Story] A woman who was cheated to get married at 18 and later on her son became the world’s biggest leader

Her name is Ann Dunham, She was brought up in a good family as the only child. She was a beautiful and rich white girl.

Ann was a straight-A student too and she entered university at the age of 16. When she was in the university, she met a boy!

This African man was a very popular guy at the university and He had won the hearts of many young women.

Both of them felt in love at first sight and after knowing each other for a few months they got married, at that time Ann was three months pregnant.

This newlywed should’ve been leading a happy life and whilst waiting for their son to be born, Ann soon found out that her husband was a cheater! He actually already had a wife and children at his hometown, so this marriage was a horrible fraud.

After the big disappointment, she decided to quietly gave birth to her son. At first she hoped by giving birth to their son and her husband will be more mature but instead, he left his wife and son who wasn’t even a month old and went to Harvard to pursue his Phd. Ann was only 18 years old at that time!

She was very angry and decided to file a divorce when the son was 2 years old. At that time interracial marriage was not permitted and she married a black man, she even gave birth to a child and then divorced. This was considered very unusual thing happened at that time.

After the divorce, her ex-husband did not provide them with any financial support for their child. Ann began her single mum’s life, looking after her child while attending her classes. When facing hardships, she just smiled. She did not want her child to be sad, and thought of ways to explain to her son:”You have a great and outstanding dad.” She was a good mum and gave his irresponsible dad credit.

But her son lacked fatherly love and it is still irreplaceable, slowly the son grew up and she was unable to hide the secret. So she explained the situation to her son.

After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree and at the same time, an Indonesian student proposed to her. Ann accepted his proposal and began a new chapter of her life. She brought her son along to live in Indonesia. Although they lived in the outskirts, no power, no tarred roads but life was happy and meaningful. Three years later, she gave birth to her daughter.

Education in Indonesia at that time was very limited and she personally became her children’s teacher. She taught her children: We must be independent, strong and must not give up easily!

She was very strict in education, waking up at 4 am, telling her children to wake up and learn English then she went to work. After work she personally taught her children to do their homework.

Because her son has slightly darker skin, his peers used to call him ‘Blackie’ but she told her son not to feel inferior, Martin Luther King was also a black man.

A person’s achievement has nothing to do with skin color, everyone are born equal. A person’s most important qualities are honest, be independent and frank with their judgment.

Ann said: “Life is full of depression, but we can create a life that is fun and meaningful!”

She believed that she can live a meaningful life, believed that her children will become a responsible and useful person in the future. At 1992, she completed Phd and she was already 50 then!

Unfortunately, even though her life had improved tremendously, doctors diagnosed her with final stages of cervical and ovarian cancer. At the age of 53, she passed away!

She did’nt know that her son would one day become the first black President in America. Yes, you guessed it right, she is the late mother of ex-President of USA, Barrack Obama!

Ann’s teachings had given a huge impact to her children! No matter if you have children or not, please set aside your anxieties and complaints, to be excellent you must first be optimistic and positive!

She was a single mother who was always optimistic and moving forward, setting aside her failed marriage, misfortunes and life of hardship, she was independent, strong and hardworking. She has a compassionate heart and is a superwoman in her children’s eyes.

Paulo Coelho – Dare to dream big

Paulo Coelho was admitted in a mental hospital 3 times because he wanted to be an ‘writer ‘

Really means to follow your passion and your heart and being different in this very world of normality is caused this much.

Paulo is a Brazilian lyricist and novelist or the recipient of numerous international awards.

He is best known for his widely translated novel The Alchemist.

He was born in Brazil and As a teenager, Coelho wanted to be a writer.

Upon telling his mother this, she responded, “My dear, your father is an engineer. He’s a logical, reasonable man with a very clear vision of the world.

Do you actually know what it means to be a writer?”

At 17, Coelho’s introversion and opposition to following a traditional path led to his parents committing him to a mental institution from which he escaped 3 times before being released at the age of 20.

Coelho later remarked that “It wasn’t that they wanted to hurt me, but they didn’t know what to do.

They didn’t do that to destroy me, they did that to save me.”

And after reading this I believe that None can say this without experience higher level of spiritualism.

At his parents’ wishes, Coelho enrolled in law school and abandoned his dream of becoming a writer.

One year later, he dropped out and lived life as a hippie, traveling through South America, North Africa, Mexico, and Europe and started using drugs in the 1960s.

Upon his return to Brazil, Coelho worked as a songwriter, or composing lyrics due to the content of some songs. In 1974, Coelho was arrested for “subversive” activities.

So as that in 1986, Coelho walked on the Road of Santiago in Spain, a turning point in his life.

On the path, Coelho had a spiritual awakening, which he described autobiographically in The Pilgrimage.

Coelho also worked as an actor, journalist, and theatre director before pursuing his writing career.

Remember that wherever your heart is,

There you will find your treasure.

Know your passions: they are the key to your physical and mental well-being

Having passions is an essential part of being human, and all people are passionate about something. If you feel like you don’t have any passions, it is probably because you haven’t discovered them yet.
When you’re doing something that you feel passionate about, you should know it intuitively because you kind of “lose yourself” in it.

This is why people often describe a change in their perception of time when they are doing something they are passionate about. Musicians often spend hours rehearsing or writing music without noticing the passing time. Ask yourself, what in your life makes you feel this way?
The positive mental feeling you get when you’re immersed in your passions affects your physical well-being too. The Harvard Study of Adult Development has studied extensively the connection between positive emotions and health. Experiencing positive emotions has been proven to reduce stress, reduce chronic pain and addictions, and improve sleep and concentration, among many other positive benefits.
Passions are an important and intrinsic part of every person, so you should create opportunities to allow yourself to discover them.

The more opportunities you give yourself to discover your passions, the happier and healthier you will become. Explore new physical and social environments, and research new fields you aren’t familiar with but are curious about; for example, by taking classes, joining relevant book groups or finding online communities. Look into new physical activities like sports or learn a craft that requires skilled use of your hands. The more unknown situations you explore, the more room you have to discover unknown passions.

Do not loan money if someone is following their passion. Yes it is a advice to bankers Because it is going to change and so much change.
Passion is a strong emotion of desire or enthusiasm felt for another person or for an activity.

You don’t follow your passion your passion follows you.
Passion is not something very destined and a thing for that you waiting for so long and finding it or looking for it.

Passion is just a feeling that can be for a job, for a person for a love for a place.

You can feel it for anything and differently on the different time but we get afraid and more then us our parents when our passion get changed on the bit difference of the time.

As it happens with all and with me also when I was so young I decided to be Dr. And started to think of it dreamt of it and also making efforts all in step by step 10th, 12th, B.Sc cpmt , Aipmt coachings. Instead, getting failed and succeed I was trying next to next but a level comes and suddenly I felt nothing for it no passion even if I get 1st rank , free admission or if someone gives me millions of rs. May be even though I didn’t study mbbs or became Dr. I just can’t think about it and felt for sometime a blankness, nothing was coming in my mind what to do after B.sc. I decided to not to study more and not to do anything.
But then my family convience me so much and i realised I love social work or helping people from childhood so studied MSW from distance learning and in these two years I lived a life of century.

Experienced lots of things did all that comes in my mind reading lots of books and traveling so much. Joined new social sites Twitter, LinkedIn then felt passion for astrology so i did it completely from learning, making notes and looking hand also of so many.

Then felt for writing so started to write for a news paper and then my blog and in other news papers.

And most important my poems I wrote almost 20 poems till now in hindi and English both. Started to feel passion for art so made few paintings and also learn so much like short hand, Corel draw, tally and also did job for a month there learnt much.

Experienced more spiritualism and deepness of meditation understand more truth about life and life-meaning.

Passion also awaken for forest and adventure so I read and watch lots of about it and imagine much but couldn’t do in real it’s not possible to do all the things of this world so for that there is a imagination it’s a very incredible thing that can make us infinite.

Now i want to help people to find their true self or for living their passion that only thing can make their journey of life complete or make them free from the cycle of surviving.

Then only they can see or feel beauty and essence of life and love.

So don’t get stuck or busy to find your passion just start doing a thing that you like or love that give you happiness or satisfaction it’s a passion.

And it’s your fire and efforts that helps others too in their duty.
