She was frustrated because she was quickly approaching her mid 30s and not quite where she thought she would be professionally or personally. She had made great progress in her career although she was still working hard to prove herself as an African American female in STEM. Her relatively nonexistent progress in her personal life was a daily reminder of what felt like failure in any progress towards starting a family.
So, one day she sat all alone contemplating life. Where does she go from here? How does she proceed in her career? What does a dating life look like for her? Where does she fit in, in her new community? Will she make new friends? Will she finally meet that someone special?
Then suddenly she looked up just as water seemed to begin to fall from the sky. She gasped at the thought of the Heavens opening up to pour out liquid gold just for her in this moment. She could feel the cool mist spraying her face as she took in the beauty of the waterfall…and then it hit her…All of the things that she was stressing over just didn’t matter. Who cares? She realized that she would continue to live day by day focusing only on the priorities of that day and enjoying each moment of life.
