Opening Thoughts

contemplation

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. Please subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates. I look forward to hearing from you!


I’m keeping that. ⬆ Those words are the ‘freebie’ ones that come with every newly created WordPress site.

Somehow though, I am inspired by them. Like so many of you, I have spent far too many of my days struggling to figure out the purpose behind it all.

I have wondered, “Am I good enough? Can I make it? What am I supposed to be doing? Is there joy and sunshine to be seen after all the rain and hardship?”

I believe so many of you out there can relate to those words. For many, it has been a long, tough road. I am right there with you. Feeling like a fish out of water – just trying to sustain breath long enough to survive.

Self discovery is a powerful tool. It is a weapon knowing who you are. When self doubt is eradicated, you carry yourself with assurance. Assurance keeps you standing steadfast, even when your whole world is trembling and nothing makes any sense at all.


Inspiration: Be Yourself

I love the Oscar Wilde quote at the beginning of this post. It’s true. Be yourself because there is no one like you. I am learning this lesson myself. We live in a world full of cookie cutter reflections and insincere smiles.

Being unique and different is truly a gift. Honoring who you were created to be is the most fulfilling, joy fueled life you can live. Will you join me on the journey?

Perhaps you are like me and desire to see change happen. But change can’t happen unless we initiate that shift. It’s time that we live honestly, naturally – with peace in our hearts and minds.

Are you ready? I know that I am!

How The Blog Began

‘Living Well With Nature’ isn’t just about nature. It’s about loving ourselves and others well. It’s about living well. For me personally, it’s about my faith in God and growing in Him. It’s about learning self-love, self care and patience when suffering.

I began this blog feeling unfulfilled in other ventures. Have you ever had that feeling where you just felt empty inside and knew there was more to share? That was the feeling.

My heart is to encourage people and bring hope to the hopeless. I know what hopelessness is all too well. Know that you’re not alone.

What We’re About

Encouragement. Natural living. Simple living. Sharing ideas. Growing together. Faith, hope & love.

I sincerely hope you will not only come back again and again but will share this site with your friends.

To be honest, I don’t know entirely where the road will lead. What I do know is I seek for this to be a place of honesty and caring. Fun and informative.

I hope you will come, read and be inspired. I hope you will find yourself living better because of something you read.

Most of all, I hope to see you along for the ride. 🙂

Sincerely,

Holly 💚

    We never do know where our words will lead us, with whom they will resonate, or how long we can sustain our voice. But fresh ideas float like butterflies just out of their chrysalises unfurling their and wondering at their surprise beauty. Thank you for following my blog and leading me to hear your voice. There’s many echoes of the past that I sometimes reread and see a progression of thinking and in worse times my disease. But as long as the universe will have me here I’ll continue to espouse my truth and I absolutely encourage you to fly freely where the winds will carry you and I guarantee with authenticity you’ll find friends and encouragement from corners of the world you’d never expect.

      1. Holly you’re very welcome. It’s important that we all support one another in however we express our views and truths. I read as much as I can and try to take some time to respond to what resonates not just hit the “like” button.
        I’m looking forward to reading more of your truth.
        💜🙏🏼

      2. I completely and wholeheartedly agree Ilene. We are in this together and I believe we are much better together, too. Tearing each other down is simply not the way. It breaks my heart to see it happening far too often.

        I look forward to reading more from you as well and pray that your week ahead is wonderful and blessed. 🌺

    1. Thank you so much! This blog is my new one. I’ve been around the blogosphere a number of years – but had that ‘inner itch’ to go a different direction.

      I’m glad to have found your blog as well 🙂

  2. Wonderful moments with WP for you and welcome to share your thoughts with all of us. It’s a good start and amazing few posts I have gone through. I will certainly look for your post and share my views even

    One word and one advise and one consoling cheer can change at least some one in need.

    All the best and once again and Smiles.

    Cheers

    1. What a thoughtful reply! Thank you so much! ♥ Your words mean a whole lot to me. You are always welcome here to share your views.

      I love what you said – indeed – one word can change someone’s life. We never know what someone needs to hear in any given moment of their life. We all need encouragement!

      I pray all the very best for you as well. Thank you again!

      Sincerely,
      Holly
