Are you just starting on this herbal journey? Trying to create your Best Life?
I’ve got you covered on this topic and will be writing more about the overall journey I’m on. I’d love to hear about yours. Learning about herbals is just one part of it. I hope I can offer you some helpful tips, ideas and information that you can use daily.
Where I began.
I started on my herbal journey about 10 years ago when my boys went off to college. I needed to find another focus after raising them. While watching them become more independent I knew it was my time to think about me. My focus turned to health and wellness. I began taking herbal classes from a wonderful herbalist who has become a special friend. She helped guide me through learning about myself and about the wonderful world of plants. You can visit her site here. Plants are so amazing and can help us in our lives everyday, in so many ways.
Learning how to blog is my challenge.
Now that I’m teaching myself how to run this blog, I feel such a sense of challenge and accomplishment. I think these are two very import feelings to have. They keep you looking forward to each new day. Maybe not everyday but something to strive for. If you want to read about how I got started you can find that post here. Don’t get me wrong it is hard work. There are days I say why am I working so hard at this. Then the next day I figure something out, it works on the site liked I had hoped it would, and it is that feeling of accomplishment that makes me so happy I stuck with it.

Making choices for yourself.
Some days I know I need to just do something different for myself. It may be I need to play in the kitchen with an herbal project or recipe. Spend the day at the beach, or work in my garden. These are other ways I find my joy. And of course there are the regularly scheduled Ivy adventure days. Taking her for a nice walk in the woods. Getting out into nature is my total happy place. It makes me feel refreshed and grounded. I think you need to find a balance that fits for you. Every time you do something for yourself that makes you happy you are creating your Best Life.
Are you ready to really get serious about your own journey? What are you truly searching for, trying to overcome, or maybe add to the journey you’re already on?
I hope that I can show you many different ways to create your own Best Life. I know you can do it!
Feel that Joy.
There are so many different ways to feel joy. You need to look inward and think about what makes you happy. Everyone is different so what I like and what you like will differ for sure. But the one thing that will be constant is the feeling of desire to do that something. Ask yourself some questions. What do you want to do each day that makes you feel better? Is there something you want to learn about? How will you find the time right now to do it?
You may be raising little ones right now and they need you on a constant basis. You may have full-time job that takes up the bulk of you day. You may just feel lost and don’t know where to start. Everyone’s situation is different. But by deciding to move forward on your journey you have already begun to be happy.
I’m feeling that joy everyday.
Flash forward to now and I’m living a lifestyle that makes me feel like I’m living life to its fullest! I’m eating the healthiest way I know how. Living in a place that I love. And I’m challenging myself with this blog. I’m enjoying the simple little things in life that can get easily overlooked. I’m so grateful to the teachers, mentors and friends that I am being guided by during my journey and the ones I have yet to meet.
