Adventure Is Out There

Is life really an adventure? Can we overcome the day-to-day monotonous routine and find adventure that satisfies our inner being? Can people find peace and harmony in a world that seems to be so screwed up?

I say yes to all of these questions. Finding your place in life is not easy and it’s not about filling some preconceived idea of who you are, you must really dig deep to discover what you enjoy and how you want to contribute to life. Once you find this then you can start taking the steps needed to make it a reality.

I’ve known for a while now that I want to help people but I never knew how I wanted to do this. One day I was searching the web and I found a college test site that was studying how well people learn online and one of the courses I could take was psychology. After a few days of doing this I realized that I had found my path, I wanted to pursue a career in psychology.

I am the type of person that is shy and reserved most of the time but there are moments where I jump head-first into something and this was one of them. I asked my husband what he thought about me going to college, he always wants to make me happy so he said supported me in any decision I made about it. I immediately started searching out potential colleges that have the flexibility of online degrees. I applied for information from 4 colleges and ended up taking the next step in 2 of them.

Not going to school in over 20 years made me nervous about being accepted into any college, it’s been a long time since I have been in that type of environment. As it turns out both colleges accepted me, so then I had to make a choice of where I wanted to go, in the end I picked Regent University.

I wanted to post this blog because then any reader will be informed of what I am doing and why I may not post as much, I have to wait and see how blogging fits into my school, life, and work schedule first.

Also I wanted people to know it is never too late to follow your dreams. I refuse to focus too much of my attention on money and how we are going to pay for all this schooling, if this is where God wants me to be then it will work out no matter what. Reach for the starts, make plans and reach your goals. Only when we do our best in all areas will we feel satisfied and happy with our lives.

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.
