However, several people reached out - one of them a couple in another country.
But I saw your tweet, about surrogacy.
I haven’t discussed with my wife yet but I think we could be interested.
Before we go on, can I have my lawyers call you if you would please drop your number and email?”
One tweet, & suddenly someone is talking about having me relocate with my son for 9 months, settlements and bills, all overwhelming really.
I shrugged and was like- "yeah okay" (because I had squeaky clean records).
I googled "Ized Uanikhehi"
You know what came up??!
Nothing! One page - my social media handles. That was it.
My entire life had been MEDIOCRE.
No book, no inventions, no innovation. Absolutely nothing!
Graduated top of my class & my entire Google search was one page of my social media handles??
But I was living for bills.
I can't tell you how "desperately sad" I felt. I was sad in my bones.
I have dreams so huge! Towers in Dubai have nothing on it
So I may never find the cure to AIDS (I am a Biochemist, you know).
I may never invent time travel. (That'd be so cool though!)
Save a life maybe?
Invest in others..
Leave a legacy.
Make my son proud. Somehow.
But I was NEVER again going to do mediocre.
Even if I'd fail at something, I will try... with everything I have.
I am nowhere near where I want to be,
But they will tell my story.
Years from now, when I am old and grey or long dead.
That Google search will make sense! 😁
