In a few days I embark on a new journey, one that will define whether I have the commitment and determination to finish what I am starting. I love to try new things, see new places, or venture in areas I know nothing about.
I have days where I want to venture out and try something new but I hesitate because I can hear voices in my head telling me that I’m not good enough or that people don’t care about what I have to say.
I may not be great at it but I love to write, writing has been a powerful outlet for me over the years and it has also been a great learning tool. Writing everything down to evaluate later on is a great way to help see the patterns that can infiltrate our minds, patterns that can ruin us or propel us forward into new areas of expression and fulfillment.
In a few days I start camp nanowrimo, it is an online camp designed to help new writers achieve their goals of creating new masterpieces while having a bunch of people there to cheer you on, my new book is going to be called Balancing Nature. I want to focus on how we can work with nature instead of manipulating it, and how we can change our relationship with plants, animals, and even the dirt.
This journey will begin and end with hope, not hope for money or status or even recognition, but hope that I can finish what I start, hope that this adventure will bring me closer to being fulfilled, and hope that I can overcome the thoughts that drag me down.
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.
Good luck to you! Don’t give up, things worth doing aren’t usually easy. I can’t wait to see the book.
