As a child I was always fascinated with changes.I identified changes with adventures! I was always anxious of what the change would bring. I was always expecting good things. You can say that life for me has been always a chain of changes of which I was not afraid but open to. Maybe looking at changes as an adventure came with my Island mentality.I was born on an island in the Caribbean (Curacao) in 1960 at that time we were still a part of the Netherlands Antilles(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlands_Antilles). I became aware of changes when I was 6 years old. My father left the house then never to return. I was aware of changes then but at that time they were just events happening in my life. These events were to me uncontrollable. My fascination started with my 10 years old because then I thought that I can control the outcome of changes. I chose to see each change as an opportunity. The adventure was to seize each opportunity and make the best of it in my interest.I realized early that I had to make a decision if I wanted a change to work in my interest. I could not stop the change but I would make sure it worked to my benefit. Looking back I was not aware of Gods plan for my life. I was baptized in a catholic church as a baby and brought up to fear God. So I knew that he is my creator and he is my rock.I knew the difference between wrong and wright.I prayed every night and morning to God thanking him for the day but I never asked him for guidance. I thought I had to do it all alone. So it might seem now selfish how I made changes work to my benefit…….
