It all began last year with the Adobe Lavender Farm and then was reaffirmed recently in Puerto Rico.
I saw a woman in a little town in New Mexico who made her dreams come true with her Lavender farm.
It is because of her that I have entered into an era of enlightenment and there is no going back now.
For many of you this my resonate with you too.
Like so many of us have done and are doing… while raising families, pursuing careers, taking care of others we put on hold our hobbies, activities and dreams while striving for that elusive term of perfection– to be a perfect Mother, wife, daughter, sister, businesswoman, career woman…
Oh for goodness sake I am relatively certain that it is even more challenging for young women today, who are being pounded with social media perfection 24/7.
( Offering a pearl of wisdom here- Perfection is an illusion and even quite boring to spend time thinking about, be wonderful, flawed and unique you!)
You know your own heart, so listen to it and please don’t be afraid.
I am holding onto this passion of believing.
Just think of all of the new experiences, thoughts, activities and stretching the mind, body and soul to new heights that await us.
While it is comfortable to be complacent, it is a treacherous mindset to reside in for very long.
We all wear many hats. right?
Especially so in our youth.
But as the years accumulate we pass those hats onto a younger generation then slide into the passenger seat and begin to take a long look in the rear-view mirror of life with a sort of shrug and pause and say to ourselves “Well, what now?”
That’s not a bad thing…because when we were younger we couldn’t wait for the well what now outlook.
Because it was just the catalyst that we needed to stay ignited, enthused and passionate about life and living it.
Harness it, bottle it, save it and put it in your pocket!
For me personally I think the time has arrived to reclaim the artisan/farmer that has been sleeping inside of me.
My vision is very clear and little by little I am truly reclaiming my rural roots.
My roots have been hidden by neglect and fear. But no more!
Our organic vegetable garden has turned into a mini farm with produce and flowers that we can barely keep up with.
Is it perfect NO! it has squash bores right now…those beasts!
I wake up at 5:00 a.m. with such a sense of urgency and purpose.
Drink my coffee and then head to the garden to begin my morning work and that work is inspiring.
Did I tell you that we are overflowing with beans!
I have frozen them, put them in salads, taken them to neighbors, and even took an entire bag of them to my hairdresser to share with the other stylists…now I am known as the Bean Lady and I can’t think of any other name I would rather have.
It’s a symbol of motivation, work, joy, and creativity.
When we label our lives with positive affirmation it encourages personal growth and happiness.
I am putting my faith in my Lord and letting Him guide the way.
He knows me better than I know myself and I know He has great things planned for both you and I!
Love for you to share your dreams tooo…
