We all have the potential to achieve our dreams, to be better people, and to make the world a better place. Yet when we experience difficulty and challenges in life, how do we stay motivated? How can we remember that we are not alone, that there is always hope, and that we can overcome any challenge thrown in our way?

Because We Only Live Once! shares one woman’s inspiring real-life story of the struggles, pain, disappointments, challenges, and obstacles she has had to face in her life. Author Sonia Michelle Veliz Alvarado talks about how and what helped her overcome each and every problem in her life, and her story can help anyone facing the same issues of loneliness, illness, betrayal, and disappointments. She opens her heart and her life, offering a window into the most difficult and painful experiences of her life in the hopes that young girls, women, and even men can realize they are not alone.

No matter your situation today, you cannot wait until tomorrow to achieve your dreams and hopes. And even though life doesn’t always meet your expectations, you have the gifts and the talents to make a difference in the world. So be motivated that the pain and the struggles you are going through today will be the hope and the inspiration that someone will need tomorrow.
