My name is Edith for those who do not already know me. If you already know me, today I ask you to please get to know me again. I have never really taken the time to formally introduce myself.
Hi! I am Edith – rich in war. You can also check out what your name means on babynames.com ; that is after you’ve gotten to know a little about me of course. People say that your name lets you know what kind of life you are going to live. In short, I think I am actually living my name. Well, I have yet to see the rich part and pray that it comes along quick. However, regardless of what my name means and the effect it has on my life, I believe everyone can be rich in war. That would mean to succeed through the struggle, right? I can tell you that life is not a walk through the park. At my age, I describe life to be a journey to an unknown destination where the path is not made, with a lot of up hills and down valleys to travel through. I always say I was somewhat giving a handbook, also known as my mother, but for some reason did not acknowledge much of the truths in it. So now I’ve learnt the hard way and I keep on learning! That is why I now run a motivational blog where I do my best to share the life lessons that I was taught, that I have learnt and that I have observed. All in hopes that if you don’t want to listen to momma you might want to listen to me.
The name of my blog Modestly E comes from the idea of putting my modest self out there for people like you to learn from. That in itself has been a challenge I love. I am not the type to even share what my next move is and now I am to share everything I do and learn so you potentially do not make the same mistakes. I love hearing other people’s stories and life experiences in order to bring to you more life lessons, inspiration, and motivation to live your best life.
Enough about this hobby that I love to do and let me share with you 3 random facts about myself:
1. I am allergic to dust. Does that even make sense? Let me touch something dusty, touch my face after and then watch me break out into a mad itchy woman!
2. Anything unhealthily sweet please send my way! I will eat until I am sick. Even then I will still be nibbling on the heavenly sugariness waiting to recover so I can eat more. I know not cute!
3. If I had not studied what I studied in college and university (Sciences and Social Sciences) I would definitely study journalism and media studies, become a broadcaster, and have a talk show. You know things of the sort.
If you want more of me then you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I also have Pinterest and YouTube. I’ve tried the Twitter thing and I don’t really get it yet. So, I deleted my account. I might try it again in the near future. I think this would be a great time to share a funny story. So, read on!
I remember I was in grade 9 or 10 when Facebook became a thing. I despised Facebook because it made no sense to me and for the longest while I refused to get it. The honest truth, I was kind of afraid of it. I did not understand how it was able to get a picture of you, locate your face and know your name! It bewildered me. I know, embarrassing! Now I know! Haha! I hope you enjoyed getting to know me. See you around.
