Questioning our Actions

question yourself

question yourself

When I started learning about permaculture I knew it was something I wanted to share with people, not because I see it as the way to do things but because nature is something I really enjoy and I wanted to share my passion with people.

One day I started a blog and knew I had to choose permaculture since it’s new and exciting to me. As much as I enjoy planting and digging in the dirt I am coming to the point where I am questioning my motives and intentions when I write. Questions pop in my head like, “Am I writing in a way that attacks another persons beliefs or how they do things?” “Am I presenting my thoughts as the right way to do things or am I just presenting information?”

I believe this phase of questioning yourself is normal and I know all I need to do is wait for the answer to present itself, I just hope I have the endurance to keep writing after I get through all of this.

The only thing I can think to do at the moment is keep it simple and make sure that I proofread everything before I hit that publish button.

Have any of you gone through this phase as well? Did you do anything to help yourself through this or did it go away over time?

Maybe there is no cure for this, maybe it is a test I must go through and hopefully I will come out the other side a better writer than I was before.

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.

  1. The most important thing to remember, is to write for yourself. If it pleases you it will please another with like interest; or those who simply appreciate your honesty in effort.
