No one really pats you on the back when you run your own small business. Actually, no one really notices. But, for those of you out there who have taken this path, you know the pit-falls, the monster doubts found in heckling you in your own head, and the web of decisions to make along the way.
How do any of us survive, lol?
Well, based on my own experience…I think it is a combination of intention, effort, and support (both from the physical and, dare I say, even the mystical realms). I know I have huffed and puffed my way through the early years of this fledgling business…I have used the proverbial “elbow grease.” I have put myself out there. I have showed up.
However, I have received so much support from customers, clients, and just care-takers. There are people out there that just know how to grow a good thing…and they help it along. You know who you are. And, I surely know who you are.
So, thank you from my roots to my shoots!!!
With our move to Chattanooga, TN on the horizon…I don’t know what shape the apothecary will take. We will still offer our seasonal herbal CSA and our on-line orders…and I will definitely continue to teach. However, I’m not sure what shape it will fully take with this new shift in life. I’ll keep you posted!
Until then, my the soil be with you ❤ May the leaves protect you ❤ May the blossoms remind you of the gift of renewal ❤
