It may be True... Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Arizona summers…no secret that things slow down here, I mean it is practically our winter, our hibernation time. Such has been the case for me, though not exactly by choice. Slowing down has served me quite well, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.

This summer has been marked by steep ups and downs (anyone else experience a few cliffhangers?). I’ve been rather forthcoming about some of the pains- the losses and disappointments, as much as I could without being a complete downer. But today I want to focus on the good that’s happening in my life. Because hallelujah! I have a lot to celebrate right now too.


I have to remind myself that it’s ok to not be like everyone else-  to do things my own way- to pave my own path- and to look like I might not have it all together. One thing I’m not so proud of is the amount of times I’ve decided to pivot in my life. At the same time, one thing I am proud of is the amount of times I’ve been able to pivot in my life.

As of this summer, I’m on to the next- but I’m taking things slow, feeling it out, and I gotta say I’m having fun. Slow is working out for me. I’ve got some exciting announcements to prove it!

All those things you thought coulda, woulda, shoulda  worked out for you- but didn’t. The truth is- You got lucky. The universe has always got your back. It might not always seem like it, but looking back you can see how those missed opportunities were necessary to make space for the good stuff to come in.
