For 60 years I had a pretty good idea of what made me happy; my family, hobbies (of which I have many), traveling, and photography. I have a job that I enjoy and the salary is solid. And I’m good at it. I wasn’t thinking about making a major life change at this age, I was looking toward retirement. I am self-aware.
Life is chugging along on autopilot and bam, one day you get kicked in the gut by reality. Your daughter-in-law dies at the age of 40 leaving your son broken. A friend and mentor is diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic melanoma. The company you work for decides a merger is the next best step on the road to success, but you know what really happens when companies merge or get bought out. Did I hear an offer of early retirement?
I’m tired of not having any control. I’m too young to stop working completely, but I’m tired of the corporate grind. I want to take vacations. I want work that’s meaningful and I want to make a difference. I want to laugh till I cry. I want to be challenged.
If you’re still reading, you’re probably wondering when I’ll get to the wellness part. Well this is it: I believe we are all entitled to healthcare and the medications we need to support a healthy life. We have the right to make decisions about the medications we take or wellness products we use. Nature provided CBD and cannabis and we are just beginning to learn of their healing power.
So join me on this journey of education and self=discovery. I want this site to be a safe place where people can get their questions answered and we can share our collective knowledge. We will learn together. Be self-aware and do what’s right for you.
Check out the shop
My immediate plan for the shop is to sell tinctures and other CBD-infused products. Salves, skin care, and spa related goodies. We might even include some specialty chocolates. I am still building the site and it is far from perfect, but it gets the job done. We take all major credit cards, and person-to-person payments through Zelle, CashApp, and Venmo (select manual at checkout). I hope to see you soon.
