The Beauty in Nature Inspires Hope

 

How do YOU Keep Going When You’re Physically Down?  There is HOPE, because the Beauty in Nature Inspires Hope!

Today as I was going through several subjects that customers request I talk about, I found one that kept coming up over and over again.  Actually, it has been asked on a regular basis for many years now.

I have always tried to respond to your questions with a personal note – an email, or a call when necessary.  But, alas, I finally realized it was impossible to answer each and every one.  This is one of the major reasons that Best Of Nancy coaching site was formed.  Here we are able to talk to you and answer your questions every day so others could also benefit from the answers.

 

Here are some of the questions I have received, all basically asking the same thing:

What do you do when you’re physically down?

How do you make wreaths, maintain several websites, send out newsletters, and manage a membership site while fighting health issues?

How can I function like you do when I am feeling badly?

I just don’t understand how you have kept going as you fight Fibromyalgia and Celiac Disease?

 

WOW, Where do I start?

First of all, I encourage you to appreciate the beauty found around you today in a smile, in nature, and in those who are dear to you.

Chronic illnesses are a severe problem for many of you.  Pain was the main focus of my life for so long that it colored the way I thought, felt, and reacted to the world around me.

It is hard to see the beauty in a flower, a sunset or sunrise…or even a loved one’s eyes when you are suffering in silence.  It is hard to think of doing something that would make your day productive when it is clouded with this “thing” which has a hold on you.

The answer for me was, and is, “God”.

I don’t know where I would be today without all of the miracles God has worked in my life.  I do know that I would not be sitting here at my computer writing to all of you, my friends, and students were it not for God and all the Miracles “He” has performed in my life — for example, all of the “Professionals” who were finally able to diagnose and treat the causes of my illness.

I am speechless when I think of the people who were sent into my life to encourage, uplift, inspire, diagnose and help me to heal.

I am VERY grateful to be able to sit here today and write this blog to you!

  1. Hi,
    I read the email newsletter and followed the link to this site so that I could view pictures taken on your visit with Julia. I must be doing something wrong, because I can’t fine the pics. Any suggestions?

  2. I am 65 years old and still working four days a week. I was working five, but after being diagnosed with breast and lymph node cancer, I decided to shorten my work week. Wrong decisions made by me when I was younger is the reason I now still have to work. I so love to create wreaths and would love to sell them, but always thinking “its not good enough” has held me back. I have so loved your website, your blog, facebook and news letter. It has encouraged me to start creating more. Hopefully I will have the courage to start my own home business, soon. I know God will guide me in the way I am to go. Take care and God bless you and may He keep you in His Grace.

    1. Thank you so much Claudette. My dear, you are not old! God still has amazing things in store for you, as I pray He does for me. I’m so sorry to hear about your cancer. I hope it has been taken care of and you are on the road to recovery. We all make wrong decisions. I certainly have, but feel so blessed that God isn’t in yesterday, and He isn’t in tomorrow. He is here right now – today! So, for today dream about what you think you are led to do with your life, and take one step in that direction. Then, do the same again tomorrow.

      I pray that you’ll receive courage for this exciting journey from many different directions just as I have. I am still totally amazed every single day at what God has done and is doing in my life.

      Start trying to sell your wreaths. Make more and more and your skills will develop quickly.

      I wish for you a life filled with joy and happiness as you embark on a well-deserved (but never too late) exciting journey.

      Keep in touch! May God bless you too! Nancy
