Teeny Botanist

My goodness, I have a lot, a lot, a lot to be grateful for. Despite being someone who generally tries to look forward, I’ve been finding myself doing a lot of reflecting recently. So I thought I’d share a little about my journey with you.

Around this time marks one year of the world being shaken so drastically that we didn’t even know which way is up. Myself, along with so many good people I love and care about lost their jobs and my community of Banff was almost 80% unemployed. What a time to live in a national park that survives on tourism, seeing our normally crowded streets completely deserted. This period came with a lot of confusion and processing in order to come to terms with reality. But it also came with so much beauty and joy that I deeply appreciate. I share this with the understanding that this time has come with so many challenges and difficulties across the board for different people, and I acknowledge that this time looks very different for everyone. This is just a snippet my personal experience.

I’m sharing this story because it’s how @teenybotanist came to be! For myself, having endless unrestricted time was channeled into many things – everyday consisted of working out, learning something new, spending time outside, cooking tasty meals with rescued food, and being creative. All my time was dedicated to focusing on my purpose outside of my previous reality.
