You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

So Amazing what a hurricane can do to the beautiful shores. When the sea gets angry....#Irma
@teamrehab13 Day 118: Where do I even start? How lucky am I to have such love around me? I wasn't even supposed to be here, but the journey knows best. Thank you #Irma. I was supposed to leave last week, but my heart wished to be here with my dad for my bday, and well? Flight got cancelled! I wasn't even going to celebrate my bday (as usual). Super last minute. Dad told me to invite some people for dinner. He said: No more than 8. It was tough slimming down the crowd, but I followed my heart. I invited those that have really been there for me and have been the most incredible cheerleaders in my life, and along this journey. I so LOVE that I have my father and all of you in a BANNER PIC!!! Thank you dad, for all your hard work and preparation for this evening. Thank you mom for orchestrating things from NJ. It was the most incredible birthday ever! Thank you Aisling, who whipped up the most incredible cake to surprise me, even though I said I didn't need a cake. Thank you Cindy, for whipping up such an amazing cake yourself in such short notice!!! Love the 13!!! And MI ESPOSA!! Indy, Yaima and Letitia for making the magic happen!!! And for the killer shot glasses by Leo! Thank you all, for being such blessings in my life and fueling me with such brilliance. You don't know how much you have helped my fight, just by the fierce and spirited love you rain upon me. (Truth be told. I don't even remember taking the banner pic I blame the Patron...and Kim, Suz and Patrice for supplying it!) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOU ALL and am SO GRATEFUL to have you as the sweet soldiers you are in my life!!!!!!!! Wow. So this is 38, huh? I can't thank you all enough. Thank you for the best night to date! And cheers to many more! (Like, literally, cheers. I'm having a mimosa.) 🍾 You make me cry...tears of joy. We missed you Veronica. #togetherwerise13 #love#happiness#beautiful#party#friends#life#mentalhealth#smiles#birthdaygirl#cheers#lifeisbeautiful#livewithpurpose#travel#travelwithpurpose#humanity#unity#leadbyexample#ceo#leadership
When tragedy strikes, we as a people come together in ways that are remarkable. In lieu of the recent events in the Texas Gulf Coast, Florida, and other areas across the globe, we have decided to actively be a part of the solution. “Mics that Matter" is an open mic event filled with talented creatives and entertainers who all decided to make impact in the lives of others. By partnering with Legends Do Live, a non-profit organization responsible for creating the “Harvey Housing Project,” we are able to raise funds aimed at helping those whose homes were affected in the wake of the recent hurricanes. Donations raised for “Mics that Matter” will go towards the “Harvey Housing Project” who disburses 100% of their proceeds back into the impacted communities. All donations given to “Mics that Matter” are eligible for charitable tax deductions. Visit http://www.micsthatmatter.com or http://tickets.micsthatmatter.com to purchase donation tickets and change lives.

I took these photos of a downed storefront awning the morning after Irma passed through Lakeland. There was not a lot of storm damage on that block, and plenty of other business had awnings that were unscathed. Looking closer, I saw that at least half of the welded joints were fractured or completely broken off. At first glance, the metal looked like aluminum, but it felt more like some cheap tin alloy, and all the welds looked like brittle cold fusion snot rockets, probably with the wrong filler metal. Just a sobering reminder that above your head or under your feet, there might be a hack job just waiting to come apart... #everyoneisafabricator#redneckmetalfab#irma#weldporn#weldmonger#hammereddogshit
