Coral Rock Stairs At Matheson Hammock Beach in Coral Gables

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.
