By: V Capaldi One of the nice perks of MS is that you have a hard time with emotional control. An example is laughing when others hurt themselves and also not being able to keep a lid on the highs and lows of life. A little more than 24 hours home from my trip to Ecuador and I am struggling to keep a lid on the exhaustion mixed with the joy of all this trip afforded my person and the brand of PaleoBOSS Lady®.
Natural Habitats are the group that organized and invited me to Ecuador. They are the only organic, sustainable farming company producing red palm oil in Ecuador. With the knowledge many of us have regarding the production of red palm in other countries being a devastating reality Natural Habitats wanted to make sure others knew they offer completely the opposite outcome and how they do it.
During my trip we were taken to very remote farms to 1st hand witness how community, heart and pride can build a company that not only supports culture, fair trade and the human collective, but does it with grace and elegance offering a product that truly lives up to the food is medicine standard. I so look forward to sharing my trip and what I learned over the next few weeks and hope you will engage in my 3 part series.
For now a few pictures that really capture the BAM of my journey:
When the reality of my being offered this once in a lifetime opportunity hit I am not going to lie the question of "why me?" kept playing over and over again in my head? How did I get here? Of all the people in the world why did they ask me? Yup that was my internal dialogue sad, but true.
Now I am proud to say I know the answer!
I did not just get here. This is not a random gift that fell from the sky. This is an earned right and I clearly see my role in this amazing journey. Natural Habitats collected the most well rounded group of individuals that they believed not only could share about red palm, but could also offer insight into how to create products to support the communities represented. Natural Habitats was as interested in what each of us did as we were in their work. It was a collective community that spent days sharing, comparing and building community around conscious living.
Not only in food practices, but business and community.
Seldom in life do you end up in a situation with complete strangers where the bond is instant. This is exactly what happened in Ecuador. A group of individuals came together and left knowing without question each of us are raising the bar on conscious awareness regarding the autopilot of life and as a collective it is a movement that is real and happening in a big way.
The volume is pumped way up and conscious living is here to stay and growing in a big way!
Raising the roof on life and living is not the easiest for most of us. Each of us find ourselves often trapped in the autopilot of life or feeling as if we are alone in our thinking. Self expression and living our dream reality for many of us is a private matter. The sad truth about this is that reaching higher purpose becomes an almost impossible outcome when this is how we are rolling.
I say F that to impossible and Hell Yes to possible!
We are in the final days to sign up for the Up Your Volume Webinar series with PBL! This series is poised to help you do just that raise the roof on life and living.
