Wizdom Naturals, A journey to health, wellbeing and enjoying life.
When I started Wizdom Naturals in 2013 I was racing through life in the fast lane. I was nursing my newborn son, my daughter was 3, and I was working a corporate cut throat job. I was running on the hamster wheel of life that many of us are all too familiar with. I knew I wanted to get off that wheel, instincts told me that I needed to get off, to slow down, be there more for my family.
I was not supported in this desire, and so I felt I needed to replace the income of my current salary in order to have what I wanted. After two years with little to no sleep, by 2015 I had reached my monthly revenue goal. Although I felt a sense of accomplishment, achieving this just did not feel as good as I thought it would.
I was succeeding but did I have the correct definition of success??. The time that I did spend at home was not as meaningful or pleasant as it could have been. I was burnt out, stressed out and short of patience.
I started the business with for the ultimate goal of more time and quality of relationships but I was failing in that regards. In essence I was doing the opposite of what I really wanted.
Gradually, I was persuaded to let Wizdom Naturals go in order to focus on strengthening the family. As Wizdom Naturals fissled out, so did my spirit. I was left with the job that had provided a great income for the family for the past 10 years, but was draining me.
In 2017 my turning point came. Within a period of one month, life as I knew it fell apart. My health rapidly deteriorated to the point of hospitalization, my marriage hit a wall, and finally, I was terminated from that job.
On the surface things looked so bleak. but I knew that this was my period of reset and restoration.
For years I knew that I had been living contrary to my true purpose but I lacked the courage within myself to completely make the changes needed to live that purpose.
I thought I had to do more, to work harder, to get what I wanted. I was listening to and pleasing everyone else to the detriment of my own wellbeing. I was living a very unbalanced, unhealthy life in exact opposition to what I wanted Wizdom Naturals to stand for.
Life had thrust the change upon me and I had no choice but to comply. As tough and uncomfortable as this transition was, I welcomed it. This was a fresh start. A second chance to get it right. To bring balance and harmony to my life, to regain health, to let go of fear and be true to myself.
As I strive to build Wizdom Naturals again. I do it with a new perspective, with wisdom and balance.
I learned the importance of slowing down long enough to THINK and establish your OWN TRUTH and the necessity of having the COURAGE enough to honor your truth. Have CONFIDENCE in yourself to know you can achieve and the DISCLIPLINE enough to follow through with the steps needed to reach your dreams.
With CREATIVITY you can do more with less. Share with others along your journey and never forget to ENJOY yourself along the way ;)
All the best
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
