The Worst Day of My Life!

Written by Ka Sundance

This video is intended to inspire you if you are ever in a situation where you think there is no way out, and you are having the worst worst dayday ever my story will show you that it is very well possible.

It was a day in 2010 when my 3 kids, I and Katie who was highly pregnant with our fourth child decided to go to Costa Rica. We were already online as the Raw Food Family but we were broke most of the time. We sold everything to buy plane tickets and were left with about $700 dollars. When we arrived at the airport on that spring day, we had nowhere to go with just a few suitcases. It felt like olden days when people were selling everything and coming to United States.

Before boarding the plane, the lady at the counter said we cannot board because we missed the date where we had to get all our biometric data on the passports, so we were not allowed to fly on the plane going through United States to Costa Rica. We begged the immigration authorities but we were not allowed. The tickets were nonrefundable as we could not afford the ones with insurance. It was a total of $5000 worth of tickets for the whole family. All that money was gone and we had no where to go. Katie had a nervous breakdown and fainted on the floor, sobbing and upset. I could not believe this was happening to us!

worst dayWhat personally gave me power at that moment was my little son Jaro, he just looked at me straight in the eye and said “Daddy don’t you worry, we will go to Costa Rica”. He spoke with such conviction that it also gave me strength to believe the same. Katy was not able to handle the situation and needed a hotel. So we paid almost half of the money we had for one night at a hotel.

So I was in such a low desperate position that I had to do something that I never thought I would have to do. I always felt proud that I did not ask my parents ever for money. Here at the lowest point of my life I had to call up my dad whom I haven’t spoken for like years. I called him and asked, “Daddy I have never asked you for anything, I am here at the airport stuck and I need your help to get my family out to get to Costa Rica, please for once in my lifetime please support me and lend me money”.

He heard me and instantly said, “Yes”. He did not even ask why. As per policy the person paying for the tickets needs to be at the counter to show the identification and the credit card. I informed my dad and he said, “No problem, I will come over”. He worst dayimmediately agreed to travel from Germany and the next morning he was there at four. We met inside the airport, bought our tickets for $5000 and got our identifications checked. Finally we were flying to Costa Rica.

This incident had healed the relationship with my father which was non-existent before. I was able to pay him back and I will be with him at the football championship in 2014 in Brazil.

That’s my story proving that anything can change and anything can happen if you are convinced enough in your beliefs.  Even if it is the worst day you’ve ever had, things can turn around.  This blog is really a place of holy inspiration, share your thoughts and share your stories of magical transformation out of desperation.

    Greatest lesson I have learned. Is that I am overly defensive and insecure from my experience. And that I can receive correction and support from others. Always my biggest heart changing moments are when I am ready and willing to receive or give. Much love Desmond. Thank u again ka
