Here you will find a place of Gratitude, Wellness and Community.
Writing has always been something that has intimidated me because it is so easy to make mistakes. I've always held literary intelligence to a high standard and because I've never been a strong writer, I have often judged myself as unworthy of sharing my words. This blog comes from a place a pure humility and grace. I AM worthy of sharing myself with those that wish to accept it. I now know this. So here it is, all of the perfectly-imperfect bits of me.
Thank you for being a part of this journey! I am so grateful for you.
Who am I? This is a question that I am still trying to figure out myself. It took 31 years to come to a place in my life where the answer to this question really started to matter to me.
My name is Laura. I am a born and raised Albertan. I married the coolest guy three years ago and together we co-created a spunky little lady who just turned two.
Becoming a mother changed the course of my life, drastically. I have always been one to coast, to simply go with the natural ebbs and flows of life and "just be". I used to think I lived this way because I was "mellow" but it turns out most of my decisions were based around fear. Fear of being judged, fear of failing and fear of not being accepted for my authentic self. I've always loved my life, my childhood and every experience I've had, Don't get me wrong, I've had a pretty cool 31 years. Its only been in the past few years that I've wanted to truly stand up and own my life.
Whats my purpose? What are my passions? Who can I serve? These questions started out as tiny seeds a few months ago and have quickly turned into little sprouts ready to really bloom.
Drops of Gratitude is growing much quicker then we expected to which is pushing me to grow and learn in a way that I never thought I was capable of doing. Its really allowed me to open my eyes and see my true potential.
After becoming a Holistic Nutritionist in 2013 I started to lengthen my scope of practice to include Essential Oils, Earth Gems and Holistic Living. Developing a place where I can utilize all these tools has been so incredible. I've always used creativity as an outlet in my life so I know that Drops of Gratitude, in every essence, was what I was born to do.
I am here to spread gratitude, to spread knowledge and most importantly, to build a community. And maybe you can find some awesome body swag, too!
I hope that this is a place that can truly serve you.
