“When your neighbor’s house is on fire, wet your own”- Caribbean Proverb
I grew up hearing my mother quote this proverb all the time. To me, it means to see the handwriting on the wall, pay attention to the signs and take precautions and learn from other’s and your own mistakes. This has been key for me and less has proven to be best in 2020!
I can’t believe February 14, 2020 makes exactly five months since my last blog post announcing going into 30 Days of Silence and my 2020 Book Vision Schedule. You can imagine my surprise coming out of 30 days of silence at the Vipassana retreat center in Jessup, GA. only to discover that the whole world was on lock down and all my plans would never be the same again!
Thankfully, I was allowed to stay within the peace of the center for an extra two weeks. In that time, my plans changed to go back to Mexico to house sit earlier than scheduled. The irony of it all! I arrived to the retreat center on February 14th,Valentines Day, and left on April 1st, April Fools’ Day. I guess in regards to my 2020 plans, the joke was really on me! COVID-19 has truly “changed my funk to disco,” and now my plans have narrowed in focus out of necessity and urgency. Stay tuned for updates on my next post.
