A new season

There aren’t many seasons in Guatemala like in USA. There are about 2 months of “cold” nights, 2 months of heat and then there’s rain. It rains close to 6 months out of the year, but not every day nor all day. The grass gets greener and the flowers blossom. This is my favorite season in Guatemala. 

As I get closer to a new season in my life, I am filled with many mixed emotions. There are days when I feel like I didn’t get to do all I was here to do and I have days when I feel  fulfilled. 

Did I fulfill my purpose? If I haven’t I hope that I at least made a difference and inspired at least one soul to live without fear and do something, not for themselves, but for a higher purpose. 

I went to a funeral last weekend and something tugged at me that left me thinking about something that usually comes up in my thoughts; am I good friend? I want to grow in this area of my life. I’m good at giving and leaving, but not good at maintaining. When people ask me who my best friend is, I don’t have an answer. This has to change. I need to invest and allow others to do the same with me. New goal: make a best friend. 

Here is Claudia, a woman gone too soon.
