Thought of the day. Even miracles take a little time…
Let me leave you with a beautiful painting from Ms. Gladys Roldan-De-Moras. She is a Mexican Artist from Monterrey, México. I found her paintings some days ago. We will go for a technology picnic next week, and I wish to remind you, I am not a technology expert. I don´t expect to be one either. All my future opinions come from the point of view of an advisor or strategist, and I don´t mean to raise bullish expectations neither to criticize or offend anyone involved in new emerging technologies such as blockchain, cryptocurrencies, big-data, or other trendy technology themes. I usually base my advice on common sense, looking at the pros and cons, listening to people or academic professors I respect very much, and then the result is that I will share with you a very personal opinion. I am preparing myself for the next week picnic. In the meantime, I am reading a lot about all what we will cover next week.
“Even miracles take a little time”. I met my meant to be future husband, my Spanish beau Alex Guillermo Lozano Artolachipi, when he was my boss in San José, Costa Rica. By the year 2001. By observing him, I learned to love him. It has taken us almost 17 years to be together. We have gone through block roads of painful difficult times. Our lives have been a roller coaster, and here we are planning our future wedding together. Still after so many years. He always believed in me. He never wished to put me down, neither to treat me as a slave or domestic employee… He never dared to humiliate me to horrible levels of denigration. He never wished for me to be diminished to a level of a “servant”. He would never dare to give me a treatment of many other men I have met who only want a spouse to convert her into a “housemaid”. Believe me when I say Alex Guillermo Lozano Artolachipi has always wished the best for the people he loves. He is as such. He never wanted me to leave my professional consulting career. Let me tell you what he did when he was my boss, he requested a director from Bain London to be transferred to Costa Rica in order to mentor me at that time. He always wished the best for the people he loves. Alex Guillermo Lozano Artolachipi is a wonderful person. The best for me. But I have had to wait for a long time to find out “he is the one”. During the last 5 years, I have lived the most difficult storm since the year 2012. Not having a job has been horrendous and painful. Returning back to live with my parents has been extremely difficult. The worst part is to be waiting. To wait is tough. And even though I was not able to understand many of my trials, I am still keeping the faith. If I would have known Alex Guillermo Lozano Artolachipi came many times in the past to look for me, to protect me and to help me, many years ago I would have married him if I only knew how much this man adored me since we met. But I have learned, that an excellent and beautiful relationship for marriage doesn’t happen automatically. I love him with all my soul. Still, What I mean by sharing with you this very personal story, is please don´t lose hope about new emerging technologies or everything else in life. Everything new takes time to be perfect. It is in the imperfection or the process that we learn to do the things right. Everything new in life, as much as I have seen new things during my 47 years of life, needs to be reviewed, corrected if it has mistakes, and polished, it needs several years of trial and error to be “OK”. It is like the diamonds, “The best diamonds are formed under pressure, but never forget they are not formed overnight” in order to be valuable and loved fully…
Have a beautiful weekend. I won´t publish from today Friday evening through Sunday Evening. I have a lot to read and digest until my next post for all of you. See you next Monday. Blessings and thank you again.
