Do you believe in self fulfilled prophesies? “Careful what you wish for, it just may come true.” “Guard your mind and thoughts.” “Put it out in the universe and watch it come to life.” I have mentioned before that by writing out or saying what you desire is like a prayer waiting to be answered. It is pretty astounding, actually. It always works! I have not been living my own belief here lately. Doug snapped me back into reality, by yelling, “Self fulfilled prophesy!” at my whining that I don’t know if we are going to make it here. He said we will make it here. Our business will still thrive. Our customers will find us online or hanging out at the coffee shop. Our bills will be paid. We will have more time together. And this little farm will suit us just fine for a long time. We are alright. We lit a prayer candle. And that was that. Case closed.
For the past year I have complained about having a retail shop. Not having a business, but the retail shop itself. I am more of a one-on-one talker, a teacher. Doug is the talker, the people person. People love him. I am not a sales person. I have no patience for stupid remarks or jokes. I am behind the scenes. I successfully develop Diabetes medicine. I am tired of people thinking we are witches because we brew Echinacea. It’s just silly. I thought of selling the shop until Doug gave me a look of sheer horror. He loves our little business. We help an extraordinary amount of people and animals. I want a farm and to teach classes, I said. I don’t want a shop. Our shop is now closing. Whoops. Did I do that? Yikes, I hope not.
And the farm has landed here. Nearly everything I wanted in a farm, a place to do classes, and sell the herbal medicines. Plus a genius computer husband that can make us an even better online store for Garden Fairy Apothecary. I can have a pot of tea ready for anyone who wants to come by the house and visit while refilling their tincture bottles. I have what I asked for. What I wanted! I guess I just didn’t mean this second. I wanted this. It came. We will make enough money to survive here. Not a million bucks. Just enough! No worries. Self prophesy. We will succeed! And help and educate people for many years to come. Keep thinking positive, people! It works. Make your own destiny.
Do you have a self fulfilled prophesy to share? Would love to hear it!
