So far I have been of the opinion that if someone doesn’t like my little (sometimes large) nuggets of information that I post on social media, then they simply don’t need to read them. These nuggets are part of who I am and therefore a huge part of Green Fingers Family so I thought it’s best to continue to share!
However, my dear husband keeps pestering me with his solution - write a blog! According to him, my posts on social media can be a little lengthy at times, sometimes have no relation to my granola business and basically serve little purpose. So, after calming down my ego, I took time to reflect on this and I kinda started to see the point he was making. But the problem is…I am not a blogger - I don’t know how to write properly or professionally. Therefore, if I were to venture into the blogging world, all I really have are my raw views and opinions. I took my time to meditate on this, hoping to find an answer and I think and hope I got one.
I know I like to keep my private life private and I feel uncomfortable adding pictures of my face to photos regarding the business, so I asked myself why is that? It is 100% fear! And when I delve a little deeper and figure why I fear it, it’s because I don’t like to be judged. Nonetheless, there will always be people who judge me, no matter what – it’s in certain peoples’ natures and I can’t change that. So, I have accepted that judgment is going to be a part of this beautiful learning journey. They (and whoever is reading this) are here to teach me. Teach me to accept, teach me to learn, teach me to get better and most importantly teach me to love, no matter what. Until I am in alignment with my purpose in life, that’s the only thing that matters.
You may now be wondering what exactly is my purpose. I feel that in the depths of my soul that my purpose is to love and to help, to plant a seed….in my own unique way. I want to use my purpose to help as many people as possible but if my open diary and inner thoughts only end up helping one other soul out there, then it’s all worth it in the end and I’ll be content.
I don’t exactly know how and what to write. I will just listen to my soul and follow what it says. I believe there are no coincidences so I shall practise the art of letting go….letting go of my fear and openly own who I am because there’s only one of me.
"What you are afraid to do is a clear indication of the next thing you need to do.”
