It’s been a while since I posted last and there’s one big reason. If you’ve read any of my posts you know that I’m quite upbeat. I love what I do and I enjoy writing about it. But the second part of last year -and August to be more specific- was tough. The first week of that month was particularly positive as I was reaching some business goals with relative ease and felt fantastic; we had just moved to a new office in Sydney’s CBD and had expanded our team a bit, finally tackling some long-term challenges. And then out of the blue, my father passed away. He had been sick for a while and we all thought he’d pull through, but his time had come and it was time to say goodbye. I am glad I was able to go back to Mendoza for the wake and see how much he was loved by his friends & also support my family in this difficult time.
It is still way too soon to be fully healed and to write in detail just how much this beautiful man meant in my life. But I can say that we had a wonderful time together in this lifetime, both as father & daughter and as business partners. I am thankful for his wise advice in time of need, but above all for his unconditional support; I believe he allowed me to chase my dreams fully, and jump wherever I felt I had to because I could always look back and see that he was there.
That’s all I can say for now, but know this, my dear Niva: you will be my inspiration for the path ahead – I will make you proud.
Love you always ❤️
