2020 stop me in my tracks. The things I am used to are no longer available. Like all the other businesses, my business journey was cut short. It was a two-year-long process that ended In a few short days. It was a sad moment, but then the sun came out. I had to pivot my thoughts. The main thing about an entrepreneur’s mind is always thinking. When one door closes, we start working on two more doors.
In 2019, I leaped into something new to me, so I thought. In 2020 I was able to focus more time on this project. By late 2020, I completed the PMP and CAPM courses. I am gearing up to take the PMI’s certification exams for both professions. In 2020, I learned how to sew. Not only did I want to learn how to sew, but I wanted to master sewing. My first project was learning how to sew face masks. Well, my face mask comes with build-in filters, nose wire, and four layers of cloth. The face mask can adjust to different face sizes. Then started making king-size silk pillows case.
The year 2021, has arrived and I have another challenge to face. The surgery left me with one good working arm. My right arm is incapacitated; for at least six weeks. How in the world would I survive this? As usual, my mind is always thinking. I decided to try this idea and make homemade flower vases. However, these vases are not just any flowers. These vases are full of unique colors, arrange paper flowers.
Even though I have limitations my minds still try to work.
The year is just getting started lets see what I will try next.
The last six months presented us with an opportunity to stop and reflect on life thus far. Base on my life reflection, I gain gratitude for the trials and tribulations I went through. The lessons I learned help me to become the person I am now. I don’t take life for granted. I appreciate waking up every day regardless of my pain and mental state. In 2016 I was forced to pause and reset my life. I have been living life to the fullest every day. I started venturing out of my comfort zone. Every couple of months, we would travel across the country. I learned to let go of things I can’t control. I started the process of purging people from my life. I stop listening and caring about what people thought.
Life is too short to be a follower. People need to stop, look, and pay attention to whats going on in their life. Reset and create your path in life.
