Tina’s Survival Story

Hi, I’m Tina! Yes, I also love my name! 😁 I’m still a puppy, yet I had the first litter. I was living in a house under construction with the janitor who had helped me until one day the owner decided that he no longer wanted me in his house, for whatever reason my little brain couldn’t understand… I was such a good girl and the house won’t be ready before a few months.

I decided to come back to my pack, especially since my temporary Momma took care of their food and health needs. I knew it wouldn’t be easy to be accepted after many months of living outside the tribe. I became a stranger, but I’m a warrior and I couldn’t give up on trying. Unfortunately, my mother and sister ended up attacking me so violently that they hit my trachea. My mommy took me to the vet as soon as she knew about the incident. I was between life and death for the first five days of my stay at the clinic.

Momma found my two fighters on day 5 after checking for 3 days and letting go with a heavy heart. She fought for my babies since the vets were skeptical and couldn’t believe my kids could have not been dead after 5 long days while they weren’t even 2 weeks old.

I’m guessing it’s all they know and I don’t blame them! Anyways, Momma made our reunion possible after a 30-minute negotiation; for this, I can’t thank her enough! We will still be at the clinic until Friday, the 14.

Momma spent almost two weeks looking for a foster or final loving family for the three of us without much success. She was concerned for 3 main reasons:

  • Last time, I was saved miraculously. It wasn’t an option to come back to my tribe.
  • Momma has a tiny apartment and no way to welcome and protect us.
  • Her financial situation is critical. She has accumulated thousands of debts, so far. Last night, a friend introduced Momma to a new shelter owner who kindly accepted to take us! The Universe seemed too small for how overjoyed Momma felt! She’ll be driving us to the shelter on Friday. It will be a 3-hour trip and I know it will feel totally worth it to Momma despite the risk of breaking her car.

My babies and I would highly appreciate it if you could help cover the expenses! You may find the vet bill above along with my photo for the pleasure of your eyes!

I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer. Writing has been my very favorite means to educate my audience, captivate their attention, talk to their emotions, and make them relate and take action. I have been honored by working as a columnist for BIZCATALYST 360°, an Award-Winning life, culture, and biz new media digest, serving as the global hub for enhanced performance and well-being, during 2020. Also, I am a contributing author in Mayhem to Miracles: True Stories of Courage, Triumph, and Peace. I am so in love with writing that I have a peaceful smile drawn on my face whenever I start visualizing the books I will be writing for whoever will be tempted to discover an inclusive philosophy breaking with all the stigmas! I was born in Tunisia, a small country in North Africa. I did pretty much everything earlier than the average: walking, talking, singing, dancing. Promoted throughout my entire education, I was also the leader of every end-of-year party. At some point, after working several years for multinational companies as an engineer, team leader, project coordinator, and product owner while always being a top performer, I figured out I was feeling miserable despite the 'perfect external image'. That marked the starting point of an existential crisis followed by an episode that triggered my re-birth and the beginning of the most rewarding adventure of my whole existence: re-writing my subconscious program and reconnecting with my true self. I was saved at the last moment through an out-of-body experience making me see all the lies, realize this gigantic Universe was not revolving around me. Most importantly, I was able to visualize I was here to leave a legacy like all of you, no matter how big or small! The butterfly took time to emerge though. Today, I identify myself as a Universal Citizen. Like-minded and light-hearted people are what I call home. I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer, and was granted the edutainer qualifier: a combination between education and entertainment! I educate on the importance of healing unsuspected traumas, seeing our limiting beliefs and biases with honest lenses, finding one's purpose and a principled mission that goes beyond the self, and unleashing the hidden potential so that to leave our legacy for the generations unborn. I have been using a panoply of means that could vary from explicit ones such as mentorship, speaking, and writing, a skill that emerged naturally during my self-actualization process to implicit mediums like storytelling, how I daily show up in the world and model servant leadership! Writing is my very favorite and most preferred tool deployed for my mission. The topics I explore are in the nexus of stoic philosophy, psychology, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, and pretty much any topic involving human behavior. Common denominator? The quality of the subconscious program. You may have a look at some of my works published on my website; Set Yourself Free.
