I’ve worked so hard in these past two years to maintain my sanity during all the chaos in my life. With a clear mind, open heart and new connections that I have made, I finally feel today that a breakthrough is happening.
At many many networking events and tweetups, I ask people whose business also has slowed to a crawl, how they managed the chaos. Usually the answer I get is being in nature and faith.
I have shared in the last year on this blog where my peace has come from. It has been a long road. Yet, I know I will look back sometime in the future to this time and realize that this time gave me amazing lessons. Humility is the main one.
I have learned to remain humble when my exasperated mind could not comprehend all the reasons for the challenges that came across my path. The greatest gift I have received is a stronger heart. It has felt like a snail crawling in an uphill battle.
I have looked at the beauty of the butterflies in my garden hoping one day I can be freer to express myself in new ways. I know I will continue to reach out and make new connections that will lead me to new doors. Just today, I met a woman at a gift shop and randomly started a conversation. We shared some things in common and have plans to meet for lunch to brainstorm some ideas.
Time and money seems to be a consistent theme for one’s pursuit of new possibilities. I haven’t allowed those issues to limit my mind during my personal growth. I now hope that my mind and heart can work like a great team and produce something viable that can sustain me for many years to come.
In the past two weeks, my usual talkative self on twitter has been more quiet. I haven’t been able to express myself with others as I normally do. I needed this quietness to stay ultra focused for my next steps. I am trusting that I am exactly where I need to be at the moment. I’m open to unexpected events that will lead to more openings.
So while I have felt like a snail in this whole process, I have gained a lot of wisdom. I sincerely hope that I have made a difference in at least one person’s life to never give up. That would make all this writing on this blog worthwhile. In the end, I know I did it for myself as my own catharsis to create real transformation within myself.
