Hey everyone! This post is completely random, but I just wanted to share a quick update on how I’ve been feeling lately.
I started working nearly full time at a plant nursery, and I have to say- being full time is NO JOKE! Thankfully, I’m surrounded by nature the entire day and the job isn’t too hard. Every time I tell people about my new job, they say “Oh my goodness Megan! That’s a perfect job for you!” And it really is. You should see how my eyes light up when talking to people about gardening! I’ve met a few people about my age that really love tropical plants as much as I do and it’s awesome exchanging tips and advice to each other. I do a bit of work though, causing my body to feel really exhausted after those long shifts. Aside from the nursery, I still work at the mall selling clothes. This is only about once or twice a week though. So basically, my schedule is packed with work. It’s been a struggle to balance work with hobbies, but I’ve been finding the time to write and create for you guys.
My intentions with this post were to share the incredible inspiration I’ve been feeling aside from the exhaustion of saving money.
At the nursery, I get many customers who buy a ton of tropical plants. One of my customers mentioned how he finally customized his backyard to finally match a tropical environment here in Las Vegas which is AMAZING, because that’s exactly what I want to do in the future. We were sharing inspiration back and forth and it felt great. He was telling me how proud he is that he started growing bananas and citrus fruits. He told me how green it is, and I asked him if he could show me a picture of it next time he comes in!
Another customer, an elder woman from Guam talked to me about the environment on the beautiful island. She was buying a bunch of awesome tropical plants. She mentioned that those plants were so common in Guam, they’re considered to be weeds back home. I let her know that it’s good for her to invest in these plants to remind her of where she’s from, and recreate that kind of environment here in Las Vegas.
I think that the nursery has opened so many doors for inspiration for me. Despite the long hours and hard work, I love it. I can’t complain. The only thing I don’t like about it is the early shifts and having no time for my personal projects.
I’ve started a funding for travel and home expenses, as you may know that those are my two biggest goals for this year.
I’m not sure if any of you get this feeling, but sometimes I feel huge waves of positivity while working, urging me to travel. It’s a weird sense that is hard to explain. Sometimes my mind tells me “You’re going to be traveling and on vacation in the very near future” and I just go with it.
Right now, my brain is giving off Hawaii vibes. I sound almost crazy for this feeling that I get, but maybe it’s my soul foreshadowing the near future or pushing me to go where I want. It’s almost like a feeling in the air… If you’ve ever felt this way, please let me know so I’m reassured that I’m not just losing it! LOL. The little vision I get is: me doing hard labor work, not in a plant store in LV, but on the big island picking fruit and disposing weeds. I’m eating a barbecued meal after a long day, watching the sunset and feeling the ocean breeze. I’ve always been so grateful for my vivid imagination. This feeling is giving me huge inspiration and keeping my life goals clear in mind. One thing that I was worried about when taking on two jobs was the lack of motivation to keep moving forward with my personal goals & dreams. Being around things that I truly enjoy only push me to do better!
As for my personal money making methods, I’ve been working extra hard pushing my digital downloads and podcast out into the world. Aside from my digital and online things, I will be selling physical products very soon. My close friend Jenie has inspired me to get into sewing again, and I have an awesome idea of something I want to start creating for you! (This will be revealed in the near future)
I’m looking into good sewing machines and I’m set on the idea of buying a baby pink colored one – So if you have any certain brands in mind, definitely let me know!
That’s about it for this update. I just want to address that I’ve been healthy, safe, and full of inspiration! Hope you all are doing amazing!
