Father's Day 2018.

I would like to wish all the fathers out there today a happy Father's Day including my own father who was and still is, there to love, support, protect, guide, and teach me right from wrong. Thank you, dad, for all you do for us. Thank you for working so hard every day to provide and ensure we have a place to rest our heads. I love you dad and I dedicate this song to you and every dad out there as well as they enjoy this special day. You may have a hard time expressing your emotions sometimes, but I see just how much you care and love me with the simple things you do. whether it's asking if I'm alright after you come home from a long day of work, making sure my siblings always remember to get me "something nice," and always make sure I have enough spending money for the road.  There are not enough words to describe how much you mean to me. I'll always be your baby girl <3.

A Letter To My Mom

Dear Mom,
I know I don't say this a lot but I just want you to know that I love you. It is no easy task being born to such a loving, caring, kind, hardworking, and extraordinary mother like you. I know we've had our fair share of disagreements and struggles, but thank you for always being there for me in the good times and the bad. for being my voice when no one else would listen, for coming to the USA and giving me the best quality of life you could through all sorts of services and programs you could find. Thank you for encouraging me to always do my very best in whatever I did and for being on the sidelines cheering me on when I succeed and excel. Thank you for being able stand back and watch me shine even though most times it was hard for you to understand all that was going on around you, but just being happy being there supporting me. For it is because of that support and your unconditional love you've given me Mom, that I am here and who I am today. I hope that one day I become even half the person you are today. I'm am so grateful for everything you have done for me.
 Me and my Mom!

Love your baby girl,
Mao

What I Wish I Knew About Blogging When I Started That I Know Now…

Hey guys!
I often get asked how I started blogging or if I had any tips or advice for those who wanted to do the same, so here some things I learned that I feel you should know BEFORE you get started...
There are so many different blog hosting websites to choose from

I first started blogging because I wanted to get a platform for which I could use to show my writing to the world. But the question was how was I supposed to create a website from scratch or was there something similar to Facebook where all I had to was create an account? In actuality, yes there are so many companies out there available to host bloggers and give them web space for free or a fee with templates and layouts ready for you to choose from. Whether the site you choose is Blogger, Wix, Siteground, or something else, just make sure you have a clear vision for what you want to include in your blog. Yes, your written content is important and so are your topics you want to talk about, but when I say have a “clear vision” I mean think about what kind of features you want. For example, I knew for my blog that I really wanted to share and embed videos, so I needed a blogging service that would be able to accommodate that need so keep this in mind.

Facebook Blogging Groups are your Best Source for advice and support

For me, this is the most important thing that I discovered in my blogging journey because it showed me that I am not alone and there are a lot of people trying to pursue the same passion as me, that face the same or similar struggle as I do, regardless of whether or not they’ve chosen to make a career path out of it .Joining these groups not only inspired me, but it also molded me into a better blogger. For I had zero idea of what to do and I had no one to turn to for advice so being able to collaborate, communicate, and get feedback from one another for our work, changed the way I choose to share my blog and if you’re a newbie blogger this might be just what you need to get to know people and possibly network.

Authenticity is Important
Regardless of what your Niche or topic is that you want to focus on, make sure that you are writing from an honest place. Write in a way that makes your reader feel close and can relate to you. Show them that you are human and they will be there and keep coming back to you.
It is best to create social media pages for your blog
This will help keep your personal and work life separate so that the visitors to your page know what the purpose of is, know where to look to have easy access to your posts and keep up with you. Plus with Facebook, it is easy to promote and boost your page too, giving some people a chance to discover you and feel invited to click and see your work. Now, I really can only hope that if like my work, they would like me as a person, right? Ideally yes, but this is the real world and sometimes, the answer is no. For example in my case, most of my family and friends don’t read my new posts when I share them on my personal Facebook, maybe it’s just not their thing, I don’t know. But I’m just happy that they encourage me to do what I love, which led me to create more of a “business” kind of Facebook page for my blog so that those who are more greatly invested than others, can dig deeper and give me more traffic.

Thanks for reading, I hope with these tips, I have been able to help some of you “Newbie” or beginning bloggers out there feel a little more at ease as you start your own blogging journey.
As much as I stand by my words, I feel as if this next post below written by a fellow blogger and friend of the blog, Cynthia Zander, writer of https://asweetnsimplelife.com/ (who I just collaborated with on my last post) can give you better insight if you want to become a "business blogger" meaning you want to make a successful career and good living out of it, but spoiler alert it ain't easy, but if you're someone really willing to put in the hard work then this one is for you.
Take it away, Cynthia.

In Case You Missed It: My Very First Blog Collabration!!!!!!!!

Hey guys!
I know it's been a while since I last posted but I do plan on playing catch up because I already have so many planned, some dated back to 2017 even. But in the meantime, I wanted to share with you a collaboration I did with a fellow blogger while I was gone for those of you who do not follow me on social media.

Here's How You Should Approach Someone And Ask Them About Their Disability

Hey guys!!!!
As you guys have probably noticed over the past couple of weeks, some of the blog entries have mainly focused on myself, my disability, and spreading more disability awareness as a whole. My goal in doing this is to let people know and see for themselves, that people just like me with disabilities in all are capable of leading productive, fulfilling, and successful lives achieving great things. After all, I myself have never seen anyone else with a disability like me in a wheelchair in the limelight telling me and showing me it could be done. The only world renown/famous person to even start to do this for me was /is the great brilliant astrophysicist, Professor Stephen Hawking. For even though we do not have the same disability of Cerebral Palsy, I feel as though our conditions are very similar and that I could relate to him. He's also accomplished so many incredible things in his lifetime that have helped change our perception of the world around us, and the space of which our world occupies. But there can only be one Stephen Hawking, and we need many more examples to show the world just what we're capable of.
So in keeping with my disability awareness theme, I first told you what it is like to live with a disability, then I focused on telling you how it actually feels like to have a disability now, I am going to tell you how to go about asking someone who you don't know that well, or at all in a socially appropriate and dignified way. That being said, let it be noted that I am no actual expert on this subject, I just know from my own personal experience but I feel that I know enough to be able to give you a few helpful tips in this particular situation, but it will vary based on the individuals you come across.
1. Get To Know Them First
Don't just go up to them and why they are in a wheelchair, start a conversation with them. Say hello, ask them their name, how they are doing. If you do this, it shows them that you are interested in more than their chair and disability. It shows you are interested in them and you value them as a person. Follow this up with something like, "If you don't mind me asking..."
2. Because They Can and have the Right To Say They Do
It's important to recognize that sometimes people just don't want to or feel uncomfortable discussing it and that's okay. You don't know how they see themselves. Maybe in their eyes, they do not identify themselves as even having a disability or are struggling to accept/make peace with it.
3. If They Say They Do Not
It is also important to recognize that they are choosing to be vulnerable with you and sharing something so personal, it's almost sacred so take it in as an honor and a privilege and never take it for granted. So the best thing you can do in return is be there for them. Give them plenty of time to tell their story because maybe they won't want to just tell you the name and how it impacts their life. They want you to listen and hear them, the good, the bad, and the struggle of all they face in life and how they got to where they are at. They want you to know who they are. It's always best to never make assumptions about what you think you know or do not know about their life, let them be the ones to decide how much or how little of their story they want to share with you.
I hope this post was at least a little bit more enlightening for you all.
