Sometimes I think events are fated, and that we are led by the hand by a higher power, all the while thinking we are arriving there by our own volition.
My journey towards WorldPulse is one such journey.
My history and journey, is my family's. My peoples and my ancestors have led the way to where I am today, have made me the woman I am today.
I think as women we all understand this in a deep and visceral way. We are our blood, we are our mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers blood. We go way back in time, and will extend into the future.
This is the legacy of 'Woman', it is the legacy of life, of creating and birthing life, and therefore to inquire about life, to have burning questions about creation, ourselves included.
Many times in my life I've wondered about this question, about the higher powers of the universe, free will, fates, God, karma…in short, the questions of life and what it is that we are here for.
Taking me to the more specific, "What am I here for, what is my purpose, what is my gift, my contribution to the world?"
I am able to ask this question because I have been fortunate enough to live a life that has brought all the personal wounds and tribulations that life brings, but was a safe and privileged world regardless.
I have always had enough to eat, I have a university education, and have gone on to open my own businesses and travel the world.
As a woman I know that my life has been a fortunate and blessed journey of exploration and discovery.
My ancestors were immigrants. Some were from small towns in the Pyrenees mountains; they were goat and sheep herders. Others from small towns in Syria; they were farmers and tillers of the land. And all of them must have asked of themselves the same questions about life and their place in the world that I ask myself.
All of them were brave enough to explore that question, get on a boat, endure leaving their homeland and embarking towards the unknown, towards a new land; Argentina.
Towards a new future and a new meaning for their lives.
I feel that my explorations of life and its meaning have taken me around the world, like my ancestors, and have caused me to strive for a better life; for personal growth, and towards the quest of answering, "How can I best contribute, serve the world and its people?"
This question has led me by the hand to find WorldPulse, where I hope to somehow be able to connect to a higher cause, to contribute and to help be a building block towards something bigger than myself.
To add my voice to yours and together build a stronger voice for women.
My question has led me on this journey, and towards 'Our Journey' as the women of the world who will help to transform her, and bring about a new and better world.
