Reading Time: 7 minutes Here are 10-steps for maintaining focus, staying organized and on track through a regular work season. I’m passing these along for you to plan your declaration for the new decade. After all, the new year is less than 2 weeks away; if you want success, don’t wait until January 1 to set new goals. 80% of most resolutions fail by February.
Reading Time: 3 minutes P.S. There was a report on NPR yesterday about a massive sugar beet crop failure. The summary included information about the U.S. importing sugar from around the world. I laughed and yelled at the same time (to anyone driving past me when I had my outburst; I swear I’m not crazy!). I guarantee these are GMO crops… the same GMO crops that we’re told will “save the planet.”
The truth? GMO crops consistently fail. You cannot create a superior product to Nature. She’s spent millions of years perfecting DNA.
Reading Time: 3 minutes As we enter this new decade, consider:
- What big dream you like to accomplish? (Don’t think small—dream of the ultimate!)
- What needs to change in your life so you feel overall balance?
- What unique gifts or experiences can you share to make the world a better place?
Reaching your highest potential is never an easy nor linear path.
Reading Time: 3 minutes I’m in the throes of learning about Urban Gardening and closed-loop systems. My quest for next year’s edible bounty brought me to a short video you need to see, called “The Story of Stuff.”
It reminds me of my journey in life and the Mission Statement posted at the bottom of every email I send: Hope, Grace, Ancient Wisdom. There are very deep, personal reasons I create products and teach the topics I do:
- I recycle as often as possible because I hope the planet can heal and am saddened by the amount of waste we create.
- I keep my products affordable for the public without devaluing what I create, because I was Graced with an ability to help heal.
- I believe that following the older laws of nature is a better path than the current system of healing.
Reading Time: 2 minutes I received an email from Bo Eason October 4 indicating most people spend 12-15 hours PER MONTH on social media… that’s 2 full work days!
You all know how I feel about that. Your dreams are much bigger than anything shared on public platforms. You deserve better in life… you deserve peace of mind, which you won’t find on any social media platform.
Reading Time: 2 minutes I refuse to be controlled by politicians, social media, or anyone who wishes to instill fear in my life. I refuse to allow myself or my husband to be told “no” to the things we deserve in life; a home, a car, healthy food, healthy pets, and peace of mind.
This is my “why.” What’s yours?
Reading Time: 4 minutes Never doubt the impact you have on future generations; your actions today determine what’s left for others. Every action has a reaction.
Please consider the importance of all creatures on this planet. Everything is significant, even if you’re unable to find it. Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean it’s irrelevant or insignificant.
Global warming is real… instead of complaining about erratic weather patterns and unseasonable warmth, ACT. You don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to make a difference; start with just one day of meatless meals.
YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Remember, Compassion is contagious…
