Going Down the Rabbit Hole

October 9, 2019

“If you don’t know where your going, you’ll wind up some where else.”

Yogi Berra

What is it that you really want? When I was a teenager, I didn’t have a purpose or direction in life. I didn’t have a focus that kept my attention. My father got sick when I was about 14 years old and passed over when I turned 17. He lived with cancer for a few years which was a very difficult time for my family. I completely rebelled and lost sight of anything and everything that I could have wanted for myself. I had no aspirations or goals. I was just drifting.

I was in  survival mode. As time passed and our family healed from our loss, I was able to begin looking at my future with new eyes. I started focusing on what I wanted in life and applied my gifts and talents to horticulture. I opened a plant business which I truly loved. My attention on learning everything I could about plants grew and grew (and so did my plants). As I evolved so did my passion to learn about nature, health, herbs and about people. This took me to the field I am in today, coaching. I love it!

 

 

You see, when you’re not sure where you want to go, any road will take you there. When you have clarity, you can navigate a path that will bring so much joy, satisfaction and happiness into your life. Having a purpose and sticking with it, is the answer to so many of your life’s questions. So, ask yourself, what do you really want? What are you willing to devote your life too? There is something inside of you that no one else can do just like you! If you want to go down the rabbit hole, make sure it is with a purpose, otherwise any road will take you to no where.

Nature Deficit Disorder

November 18, 2014

nature deficit disorderIf you want to think clearer and feel better, spend some time in nature. The plant world holds the key to unlocking our confusion and troubles. It soothes our soul and provides life-giving oxygen for us to breath. I once owned and operated a horticultural business. I would install and maintain plants in homes and office’s. These plants brought the outside world inside and helped people become calmer, more productive and healthier. People need the connection with nature. In our technological world where many people sit in an office or indoors for most of the day never being exposed to any nature, a condition called nature dfecit disorder occurs. We become disconnected. Nature deficit disorder also is the disconnect from our food supply, our wanting to irraticate all insects, and anything that separates us from the natural world. When we learn to reconnect and live in harmony with our natural world, balance will be restored. So I invite you to spend some time in nature and reconnect with our life giving planet earth.
