Vintage Camper Soon to be Hemp Studio!
Let me just start out by saying I am one of those people who feel weird when I am functional!
Maya Angelou said “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” — Maya Angelou
Well, if that isn’t the most inspiring statement! My mission in life is to just be normal and enjoy that weirdness. In my 20’s I had a fascination with the word thrive and believed it should be and could be an attainable state. I thought I could get there but I never actually did.
Don’t get me wrong! My motto is Survival is an Art Form and I believe it is something to be celebrated! I am enough! You are enough! Our value does not come from creating. Our value comes from being able to love through hard times.
But today I know something has changed. This morning, sitting at my kitchen table/desk in the vintage camper soon to be hemp studio and I realized I was thriving. I was ready to problem solve and not run from my problems.
Nothing drastic has changed in my life. My student loans look the same! Climate Change looks the same. Everyone at the grocery store is still completely unaware of their PLASTIC PROBLEM.
The only thing that has changed is my cannabinoid routine.
“What is this feeling? Am I feeling this? Is this really me feeling this?”
I feel strong. I am focused and alert in the morning! Lunch time I am still focused and alert! Around 4pm I am still going strong. No longer is my first cup of coffee the only enjoyable moment of the day! Evenings are now a blessing with a sunset and not a struggle. I am functioning like a “normal” human being.
“I am normal!!! This is weird!!! I have to tell someone!!!”
And……I lost 3lbs in the first week!
I am sharing my cannabinoid experience in more detail on CanvasHempJournal.com if you want to learn more!
