Hannah  What do you suppose would happen if people believed this crazy notion that the Earth loved them back? πŸƒ

Broke, single, mentally ill, and facing potential unemployment, but still the happiest girl in the world when jumping into the Lake at 7 o’clock in the morning.
Don’t tell me there’s no magic here. β€’β€’β€’
Thank you, Sister Huron, for your company and guidance.

Now everyday I wake up and breathe, I don’t have it all but that’s alright with me. β€’MMβ€’

Life has been confusing lately, but my garden and my kitchen have been my therapy, keeping me grounded in the present moment and making my body strong. πŸ…πŸŒ± β€œThe land loves us back. She loves us with beans and tomatoes, with roasting ears and blackberries and bird songs. She provides for us and teaches us to provide for ourselves.” πŸ’› ~RWK

Reflecting back on last week at 4-H Great Lakes Natural Resources Camp and still can’t figure out how I came to deserve such a blessed opportunity. 🌿
Early morning yoga and swimming with the campers, leaf crafting, drinking sumac tea, singing around the campfire with our arms around each other, sleeping in my hammock under the stars...my heart aches for these things now. I shared space with many amazing natural resource professionals and got to teach and guide alongside them, watching as campers gained knowledge, became leaders and grew in their love and stewardship of the Great Lakes. I get bogged down and discouraged with the stress of service projects sometimes, but now, I remember who all this was for.
Thank you, Earth Mother, for all this. 🧑

Much gratitude to Lake Esau for being the host of the perfect 7 am swim with campers. I wish every day started like this. πŸ’™

Final affirmations as the Summer Solstice passes on πŸŒ… β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’
I am grateful for my life, my health, and my community.
I am proud of the work I have done and the service I have given throughout this last year.
I am not ashamed of who I am or what I believe.
I am as I am, full of passion and compassion, forever searching for grace, and that is okay.
I will find grace in service to my community and Goddess and in love and acceptance for myself. β€’
Thank you, Mother, for all this.
Blessed be. 🧑

Getting things done and laughing in the 🌧 with some of the best people around. We cleared this space for a boardwalk that will be used for water education programs (Macroinvertebrate studies, for example). #huronpinesamericorps #americorps #gettingthingsdone #signatureserviceproject #environmentaleducation

Thankful for these hope-bringing signs of new life here in Northern Michigan πŸ’› #forestscape #puremichigan #springtime

Three years ago I made the best decision of my life, to go vegetarian and mostly dairy free. Everyone that knows me knows that I love to preach about climate change mitigation and reducing your negative environmental impact, and I have found going veggie to be the most rewarding and fun way to accomplish some of those goals. Being veggie makes me feel cleaner (no animal fat grease!), helps me save money (beans are SO much cheaper than beef) and gives me a creative cooking challenge every day. My footprint is far from perfectly sustainable, but this is a start. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
More and more scientists are arriving at the consensus that a vegetarian or vegan diet is more sustainable and for many, better for human health. For more information on how diet shifts support sustainability efforts, you can visit www.planetvision.com/actions/shift-diets or DM me and I would love to chat. 🌱

Putting these photos out there makes me a little nervous, but these words are burning in my heart to be shared.

Staring at the scale at the doctor’s office this morning, I felt my stomach sink. Today, I clocked in at my highest weight ever. All day I’ve been looking back, reevaluating. Trying to figure out how, after months of eating a nutritionally balanced diet and going to the gym at least 4 times a week, this could have happened. Why is my weight still creeping up, little by little when I’ve been trying so hard to keep it steady?

So I went to the place I always go when I’m completely at a loss: my yoga mat. And something incredible happened. My yoga flow was so balanced, so grounded, so powerful. My body felt strong and stable. And immediately I thought about the picture on the left. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
In February of 2016 I was at my lowest weight since graduating high school. I was so over my head with depression and fatigue. I remember not eating bread or pasta for months because I was afraid of them for some reason. I remember bringing a can of vegetable soup for lunch and convincing myself that 130 calories was a sufficient meal when I was walking 3-5 miles a day to get around campus. People told me all the time how good my body looked. But they also told me that the shine had left my eyes. It’s hard for me to look at that photo because I can see the dullness that people were talking about. I can see how weak my body was. And it’s painful to remember. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Now here I am on the right. I’m still struggling to find wellness. Having a doctor that has finally confirmed my illness and is actively trying to help me treat it is a start. But somewhere along the way, I have managed to find strength, and I am so grateful for all the people that have loved me through everything because I know they are a significant source. Hopefully the next things I will find are grace and acceptance for myself. I’m learning that wellness cannot be represented by a number.
So how do we measure it? I’m still trying to figure that out.

With love 🧑

Hannah
