Wisdom is Flowing


Yesterday morning I had my meeting in Skype with my menthor Clarice. I have to say she really made my day. Our conversation, in which I spoke the most cause I am a talkative, My conversation with her opened a lot of new ideas and reflections about my participation in this program, myself and life as a whole.

First of all I am happy to have clarice as a menthor. She is cheerful, kind, and has a beautiful dark- sincere-welcoming eye looking. We had a free dialogue and I share few things with her I never talked about and her questions gave me new sights about things I've talking for a while. I would like to stress 3 points that seem to me important since they keep me thingking and producing new reflections again and again.

I hope to acomplish the program successfully what it means to me be able to do every task and take all the leasons and experience from you and my mentor and after 6 months feel satisfied with what I learn and what I give. And be able to use what I am learning during the process to design my project about the school of citizenship for women, organize my think thank and plan de actions, so maybe we can start to make fund raising next year to put it at work.

In my conversation with Clarice,I reafirmed important things, and this will be very helpful to make stronger my commintment with my goals and this program and I would like to share with you.

I found out how happy and content I am with my life right now. Despite the day by day problems and some concerns , I can say surely right here, right now is the best moment of my life. With no doubt, regarding I dont know what is coming, I am happy and I am plenty faithfull about the future. Yesterday I looked my life in a flashback: it was clear for me the sense of everything, the reasons behind, how everything has matched along this years as a perfect puzzle.

There's no chaos, there's pain and joy, but never chaos, even when during my bads times I thought sometimes everything was going to hell, I've always found a little piece of heaven to hold on from. Being sure there is a purpose I have all the reason to feel confidence and faith ( faith as a power to move on, not just religious sense). That doesn't mean I didnt feel afraid before or I wont in the days coming...but searching the purpose and the way to accomplish my goals is stronger.

Wisdom that we gain from experiences: "To be" someone, is not an static state, is a resulting of a path. So, what I am now is the product of the path I walked before, with everything included. I don't feel satisfied today just because my happy moment and goals accomplished, also for my wrongs decisions and bad moments. Who has not faced adversity doesn't know her own strength, and with my strenght I can go further for me and the people I want to benefit with my goals.

I can't think in achieving my aims just for me and my personal satisfaction."I can't get enough satisfaction" thinking I can do something good that others can not profit from. Life is about flowing. If you have something valuable to say or do, share it! is the first step to get suppor, advice, company, resources to achieve it: Communication, connecting, are ways how life flows.

We women have natural wisdom about. We are always sharing:Cooking recipes, clothes and shoes, make up, gossips, even in humble things, we're sharing ourselves, letting us flow with the life, trusting that the better is just in time for arriving. This is a powerful resource and we don't need money, academic grades or declare ourselves in a political position to use it. What I see is the base of this community is that: sharing, making the best of ourselves flowing to the growth of all and put in common the heavy situations to be shared so making our burden lighter. That's our "True Color"

Today I will meet my midwife Abigail. I am excited and expecting the best from our meeting. Talking about colors,I let you with this song I like.
