Ever looked around and felt like your life was not your own?
My name is Jeannie Shaw. Originally from Belize, I was born to a Scottish father and a Belizean mother. Growing up in the Caribbean gave my life lots of color and diversity. Yet, I woke up one day and just felt stuck.
I was led on a personal quest to script a different story. I shut down my life as I knew it within two weeks, moved back to the US and embarked on a journey that's not fit for the faint of heart. Many of us experience hardships in various ways. Some of mine called me to seek, embrace and immerse myself in the experiences that made me feel like light.
I yearned to be around people, places, events and things that made me feel more alive.
One night, as I was finishing errands, I had a clear vision of myself writing and the words Nourish Me Sweetly followed. And here we are.
The mission of Nourish Me Sweetly is to encourage you on your path to self love and self care. Mind, body and soul.
The way I do that is to share my life experiences through poetry, product reviews, travel and life's experiences. These will all culminate into a book one day and I'd so love for you to be a part of this journey with me.
Nourish Me Sweetly is also a space for fellow writers to share how they have learned to nourish themselves sweetly through all the ups and downs of this ever evolving expansion we call life. If you'd like to submit a post for NMS, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I loved this excerpt from Conversations With God, Book 3. The author felt he had no authority to share anything because his life wasn’t an example of what he was about to share. This was the wisdom he gained.
“Public declaration is the highest form of visioning. Begin the living of it by declaring it publicly. The first step of making it so is saying “It is so!”
– Neale Donald Walsch.”
As much as I love to share what I learn, I don't always practice what I preach. Even though I can be very convincing in what I believe, sometimes I fall short of what I know to be true (for me).
There's an old saying, "A teacher teaches best what he must learn."
That's me. Some days I’m an A+ and some days I couldn’t even make it to class. And that’s ok.
Join me on my quest to love more deeply and care more sweetly the great I AM inside.
