I wrote in the end of January how I was going to implement a morning routine for the month of February with journaling, bible reading and prayer. I had my plan written up, I shared it with you on the blog, and in reality I only did it for 1 day. What a bummer.
I didn’t want to share my experience on here, because I felt like such a failure. Continue reading
So, I shared in my post about my word for 2015, that developing intimacy with God and intimacy with my ideas, thoughts and emotions were a goal of mine this year. I think creating a morning routine that involves prayer, scripture reading and journaling will really help me to find structure and motivation to accomplish these goals. Continue reading
Based on my post from yesterday, I have a lot to think about in terms of time management and managing my commitments. I am motivated to change more than ever before, and I want to take advantage of that.
In the past, I was the Queen of New Year’s Resolutions. I was going to ‘get in shape’, eat clean, pray unceasingly and all the other behaviors we idealize in order to achieve the perfect version of our self. But, instead of making a bunch of resolutions, I picked a word that I wanted to inform how I live this year. A word that serves as a gentle reminder of things I want to work towards, without judgment. Continue reading
I have so many things to say, I will have to split it up into 2 posts.
First I want to give you a recap in pictures of the things that kept me from the blog since Thanksgiving.
The first weekend in December I graduated from the Botanologos School of Herbal Studies!
My name is Noelle Fuller and I am addicted to being busy! Proven by my packed calendar. I am enrolled in a herbal certificate program where we have classes one weekend a month from March-December, I am taking 16 credit hours at school this semester, I am interning 10-12 hours a week at my school’s organic farm, I work part-time 12-18 hours a week to help pay for school, I have begun to teach classes and give presentations about healthy eating and herbal medicine, I attempt to blog consistently, keep the house clean, food on the table and spend time with my husband. On top of this I am always driven to learn more so I am the middle of reading three books right now. one about biomechanics, one about permaculture, and one about cooking. I also listen to podcasts during my commute about nutrition and health. Everything I am involved in are really good things, things I am passionate about and excited to be a part of, but this is obviously not a sustainable lifestyle. It has been weeks since I have woken up feeling rested. I am constantly late for things, and dropping the ball or procrastinating on something I have promised someone. I have a lot of anxiety and overall I have the feeling that I just can’t wait for this semester to be over. The crazy thing is that society applauds this type of behavior. I feel like people really look up to me for my drive and determination and work ethic, when truthfully I am the one that is doing it all wrong. Continue reading
