I would venture to say that learning to love myself enough to BE myself, has been my biggest challenge in this lifetime. The aha moments when I remember this truth are quite emotional for me. This truth, which is obvious to some, remained oblivious to me many times as I have traveled through this life. Self-sabotage has come easy to me., I can get scared when things are calm and there is no drama. I can stir the pot and create crisis quite quickly. And in reflection, I am also capable of creating the most beautiful experiences.
The creation of my sprout growing business, Living Greens, was meant to be part of my life. From the moment I first read the article on sprouting, until I closed the doors in 2002, I lived and breathed healthy food and teaching classes on healthy eating and raw food preparation. It was my passion. I continue to grow sprouts at my kitchen sink all the time., and wish that others will do the same in their home.
This coming spring, I will be building a small greenhouse outside to grow my microgreens. A fence will keep the deer away from my raised beds and spring bulbs. I am looking for donations of scrap wood, pallets, etc. to help with the build. Several old wooden windows will cover one raised bed so I might grow kitchen herbs year round.
I was fortunate to find a woman close by who has elderberry bushes. I will be acquiring some cuttings and planting them this spring also.
Life becomes amazing when we allow God to create through us. As we recognize, acknowledge and honor our God spark, we become creative beings, shining our light.
