A cup that I wake up and use every day is close to my heart. The cup is printed with the words: You light up my life.

My father gifted me this cup when I had been complaining about my relationship with my mother when I was 17 years old. It was totally bad and hurtful time for me because sometimes a month would go past without her calling me.

The cup is from a quote that explains the light that I am in his life, that comes with the strength of a woman. The light in the darkness.

Every time I see it, it motivates me to show love even to my enemies who may show me hate. This makes me stronger day by day.

This cup is very special to me because it was gifted to me by my late dad, an incredibly strong man who has faced a lot, yet who had a smile on his face all the time.

Every day when I see the cup it boosts my courage, strength and confidence. Every single time I lose in life I come back to use the cup. It tells me that failure is just a part of life.

Keep moving there’s light at the end of the tunnel and you are the light to get direction to the end of that tunnel.
