Many of us have gone through that moment in life where we have had to shed tears. At that moment probably we had been thinking that it was the worse thing that could happen to us. We often forget that this is just a process in the unfolding of something wonderful. Just like the butterfly it gets painful and ugly to reveal something beautiful. Same goes for diamond, it takes years of pressure for the carbon atoms to produce that marvelous rock. So my word is to shed the tears, break the fears, accept the cheers and become a pioneer.
Enjoy your journey!
