The flexibility of working when I want is priceless

I am a mother of 2 boys, now teens, but when they were younger we struggled terribly. Wanting my sons to grow up with a father, I endured a toxic relationship. No friends, self-esteem, confidence, or belief in my ability to do it alone, kept me stuck. Then one day taking a Lyft, I picked the brain of my driver and I was told about the express program…that changed everything! Not only did I make enough money, but I also grew confident in myself and I started to believe that I could provide for my family and wouldn't have to continue being trapped or unhappy. This opportunity also allowed me to continue my pursuit of energy medicine, to the point that I was able to achieve my certification as a Master Reiki healer. And I’m able to continue my studies to continue my evolution. The flexibility of working when I want is priceless. It also has allowed me to help passengers in this way. Without rideshare, none of this would be possible. I can't express enough the impact this has had not only my life but my kids’ lives and the people I come in contact with. From a welfare recipient to a productive citizen of society. From a poisoned soul in a toxic situation to a hopeful positive influence in people's lives. From hopeless and lifeless to endless possibilities and new paradigms!
