For me at 65 it’s all about feeling productive, valued and appreciated.
It was a little scary to realize that my young filly that was just born in September will probably outlive me.
I also get great satisfaction from supporting others to succeed through systems and coaching, sharing all the things I’ve learned while on this journey we call life.
With 37 years of sobriety I did a lot of this work in my healing journey – I am unapologetically me.
I talk loudly and quickly. I speak my mind, tell the hard truths and really have never given a shit about what others think of me. I’ve chosen the contrarian path most of my adult life (after the alcohol was removed).
Why did I decide to give up the life of do what I want, when I want and how I want?
To give back to the cannabis industry and small business owners everywhere the freedom that I’ve enjoyed.
Watching from afar what’s happened around the world in the past few years has made me appreciate even more what I have.
This all sounds super sweet and lovely – AND the downside is that I don’t have the pressing urgency that I need to really make it happen. This means I often fall into procrastination and inaction. My fear of getting it wrong can paralyze me at times. I didn’t post from day one, but those “flaws” have been with me a long time.
My why now is partially about earning what I’m worth so that I can add the luxuries without a second thought. A barn for my horses, a PC to replace my decade old machine, a greenhouse to reliably supply most of my own food, a new vehicle when my 7 year old one finally dies and a special 25 year anniversary trip to Antarctica.
