When asked about the difficult times she went through, Blair replies, “as a child of divorce; I had hard experiences that made me more mature than my age – a father who struggled with addiction and did not help me when needed made my heart bitter. Growing up, I forgave him and brought him back into my life only to find out about his incurable disease that broke my heart to pieces. “
She continues: “I decided to start the I Am Resilient project to help the community learn lessons. This was the beginning of a turbulent period in my life. I lost my grandfather and had a car accident on my way home from a funeral. A month later, my husband had a heart attack and had to undergo surgery, and then finally, to further exacerbate my problems, I was confronted with the traumatic experience of anti-Semitism. ”
Things got worse, and then a pandemic broke out, bringing further suffering, including miscarriage. But each experience has given me more strength and made me more resilient, so I still go strong and heal forward and publicly.
The past few months have been extremely difficult as several close members of the Blair family have passed away. However, her immortal spirit never fails her and she is on her way to the stars. The book I Am Resilient will be released in the fall of 2021.
