Isn’t life interesting? How it changes and ebbs and flows from one experience to another? Always opening doors to dreams and lessons and then moving us through to the next bend. It all can be breathtakingly beautiful in its innate simplicity and flow.
I went for a job interview yesterday. I got it, but realized that I really do not want to go back to working the same old things I have done off and on since I was sixteen. I gave my apothecary to my daughter, Shyanne. Yes, I am tired of expensive printers, and labels, and sales taxes, and such but I gave it to her because I can think of no better gift to give her than a career and a set business.
“I don’t know what I can do. I need to do something!” I mentioned to a friend over coffee about jobs. “You can always teach,” was her reply.
I had said (oh, how many times have I said things and then changed my mind?!) that I didn’t want to teach anymore. Why? Because my classes are three months long! It then occurred to me that I made that up, I can change it! Ha! We forget our own power of decision. I will be teaching a six week Certified Herbalist Course. I’ll start each week with tea, a bit of ceremony and camaraderie. They will learn all the important things they need. Ditch the text book. Teach them real herbalism. Make it less expensive so it can help more people. And it helps me.
We often forget the power of decisions. We can manifest anything we wish, but we are also at the mercy of fate. So, make simple changes to make your life better, and breathe. Your gifts are your map to your good life.
