Getting out of the way with patience

Getting out of the way with patience

I’m challenging myself by waking up earlier to go watch the sunrise. I just moved temporarily to a place on the beach.

If it wasn’t for the beach, I probably wouldn’t have started this blog or my whole new career for that matter, since it was because of blogging in 2008 that my whole digital marketing and social media career evolved. My beach was my haven during difficult times when I was a realtor and all my deals fell apart.

Luckily, I already had started a blog before the financial crisis so this platform prevented me from depression. I gave myself that gift to go to the beach instead of brooding inside the house wondering what I was going to do. So I looked for work during the day with stress, and at night, I blogged to relieve the stress. That way, every morning I had anticipation to do something positive.

This is my second day waking up at 6AM to see the glorious sunrise. Yesterday, it was clear and bright with no clouds to inhibit its beautiful display.

Good morning..let’s start the week refreshed and inspired. ?? #blancasunrise #sunrise

Watching parts of the rays outstretched within the clouds, I saw it as a metaphor of having patience when you want a certain outcome for a situation. Things happen in the right timing while behind the scenes, your visions and ideas are taking shape.


Our minds get in the way and want it now. But what if now is not the right time? What if with your patience and love, you allow nature, the heavens, God, guardian angels or whoever to help you to put together all the elements and conspire outcomes for a better result than you imagined.

Sometimes we get fixated on having what we think is right or best. But our minds are not necessarily always correct. The mind actually gets in the way with so much convoluted thoughts that it is wiser to get out of the way a bit and wait. That is why patience is a virtue….a big one!
