the world is not black and white, it has many beautiful colors, which color is the right one? Which color is the best one? Which color is the original one? Who cares…they are all beautiful.
I find myself having a hard time writing lately, at first I wasn’t sure what it was but now I think I know why.
I am the type of person that when things get tough, I quiet down or shut down completely to what is going on around me so that way I protect myself. I’m not saying this is the best thing to do but it’s something I have taught myself over the years, plus it keeps me from getting too emotional about events and saying things in a manner I know I shouldn’t.
So in light of everything that is going on in the world, the looting, the racism (by both sides), and the total lack of respect for other human beings, I find that I just want to pull away, remaining in my own little piece of the world with my family.
You might think I don’t care but you would be wrong, I do care, it’s just that during times like these people are not careful, they seem to lose their common sense, they get too emotionally charged and begin acting like animals. And if they don’t act like animals physically, they do verbally, labeling, calling names, generalizing, and many more, always trying to point the finger but never facing the facts.
How quickly we forget that mankind was made in the image of an Intelligent Being, that we were given the gift of freewill, and in the process of this freewill, we hurt ourselves and others, sometimes intentionally but mostly we don’t mean to do it. If this Intelligent Being can forgive us, why can’t we forgive each other?
About Mimic Nature
Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you! I’m Jana, I’m an eccentric wife and mother; I work 2 jobs and homeschool my kids.
With all this going on in my life, I want to focus my attention on the things that make me happy, and the one thing that has made me happy ever since I was a little kid is nature. As my life progressed and changed through my teen years and my early married life, I lost my connection to it. Life took over and here I am living disconnected from nature because of work, bills, and every day events that keep me away.
So the next chapter of my life will be dedicated, at least in some small part, to reconnecting to nature; I still have a mortgage, work, and a family to take care of, but now, I will be more aware of nature and my place within it. Each day, I will find some small way to not harm nature.
Not long ago I was introduced to something called permaculture and I fell in love with it. Basically, it’s building a small ecosystem in your own backyard that is based off of what nature would do naturally. In turn your backyard helps you, and you help your backyard…with minimal work!! At first it may take more work, but over time, your backyard will become self-sustaining and you won’t have to work as hard…other than harvesting.
I love the life lessons that I learn from nature, so what I promise to do is share a lesson that I’ve learned from nature each week, share what I’m learning about permaculture, and share my own personal progress in changing my homestead into a permaculture Garden of Eden. And since it’s hard to make any changes in life, I want to have some free giveaways once in awhile…all nature themed of course, to help all of us remember our ‘green’ family.
Read a few articles, see if you like what is there, if you do, go ahead and subscribe. If you don’t like what you see, that’s ok, I’m honored that you took the time to get to know me a little and see my vision for my blog and my life.
I can identify with your feelings on the chaos we experience. It’s always best to step away from circumstances when they reach the level of madness. Nothing of value can then be accomplished without common sense debate and compromise.
The problem is that the sides taken find themseleves either for truth or compassion. Seldom is found the balance of each. As Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta said: “Truth without compassion is cruelty, and compassion without truth is sentimentality.”
A Happy Thankgiving, despite the non-sense.
