A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about serendipity and perseverance. How if you just make the effort and take baby steps (again, "bird by bird"), good things will come your way. Little did I know that that particular bout of perseverance was coinciding with the swine flu--so perhaps, a little rest would've been in order.
And then, approximately two weeks later, I had a very similar day (sans swine flu), on a much larger scale. So big, in fact, that I sent this email to a good friend:
Do you ever have one of those days when it seems like everything--every idea, dream, connection, thought--comes together? Today is that day for me--put it on the calendar. December 17, 2009.
And little did I know what was to follow. So many amazing connections and opportunities and experiences that made every little misstep, every dead-end job, every ounce of blood, sweat and tears I've poured into this business worthwhile.
2010 is going to be a huge year. Bring it.
