I’ve tried to journal and/or blog at least a hundred times!! Even with the best intentions, it seems to fall by the wayside.
However, I’m so convinced that the written word is very powerful and incredibly important for many reasons. Sometimes I’ve even benefited from reading my own writing. It reminds me of truths that I’ve lost sight of, experiences that I’d forgotten, or just some needed encouragement and focus as I press on.
I am, by no means, a brilliant person, nor have I led an extraordinary life. But I have lived, and I have tried to glean wisdom and spiritual insight as I have traversed this winding path.
Before we go further, it’s probably good for me to state:
- I don’t have all the answers. In fact, I have more questions than answers!
- I am not an expert!!! This is my relentless pursuit, not my arrival. While I may have acquired some talents and skills, there are still so many things I know nothing about!!! And, to be honest, a lot of things I thought I knew and didn’t!!!
At present, I am interested in all things that pertain to becoming more self-sufficient in growing our own vegetables: composting, worm farming, dehydrating, permaculture gardening, along with healthy living, gut health, essential oils, great recipes!! There is so much to learn!! There will be successes and failures.
- I do real. It’s so easy on social media to portray an image, create a persona, and to appear like we have it all together. I do not have it all together!!!! In case you didn’t hear that, I DO NOT HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER!!!! I struggle, I fall, I fail. I am moody and cranky with my husband, and I waste hours on my laptop. And that’s on a good day….
So if you’re feeling brave, or just curious, follow along and we will learn together.
