You will achieve it with a lot of faith and hope in your Orishas and always thinking that all your sacrifices today will be rewarded mañana. Being strong we will overcome obstacles, but being weak we will suffer until it clears. Maferefun the Osha! He taught me to enjoy the rain and also the drought.
