There was a point in my life that the thought of “Tomorrow” just simply was not in my vocabulary. The thought of “planning” was a joke without a punch line. To this day, there are people that share past memories with me that I cannot recall. Many reasons behind that and the main reason is the fact that there was no thought behind my actions in the past. I did it because I felt like it and because it felt good at that time.
It has been a hell of a ride and I thank the Universe every day now for allowing me to live through it all, survive, and learn from it. My grandma said something to me within these last several years and her quote automatically engraved itself onto my heart. She said, “Muchachita, tenes que vivir como si hay un manana (Young lady, you have to live like there is a tomorrow)”. I don’t know if it was the tone of her voice, the glare in her eyes, or the prayers she never stopped on my behalf but that day something shifted in me. A type of clarity I had not yet experienced walked straight into my life and never left my side.
Sometimes it is a struggle to have a healthy balance on things. From time to time, I have found myself focused more on tomorrow that I am unable to enjoy today. This isn’t always the case but I will admit it has happened more times than I am proud to say. One of the biggest flaws I was able to see recently is that I have been focused on getting more and more members instead of giving attention to the members that joined at first with no hesitation. Moving forward, that will no longer be the case. From the bottom of my heart, I am sorry. I acknowledge where I have gone wrong and my decisions from now on will align with my gratitude towards those whom have joined.
It’s great and inspiring to want more, to long for more, and to work for more. It is also great and inspiring to enjoy the blessings presented to you today. People say that you can’t have it all and I have learned that endless money is nothing if you aren’t able to balance a personal life, a family dinner, and a social life as well. So let’s toast to better days!
