Dear friends & family,
October is an extraordinary month—a time when I’ll be celebrating emotional wellness and reflecting on the connections that make my life meaningful and add value to all of our lives. This month also holds significant events close to my heart, including World Teachers Day on October 5th, National Women’s Business Week during the third week of October, and National Make a Difference Day on October 23rd. These occasions remind us of the profound impact we can have on each other, not only emotionally but also spiritually and physically. My theme for the month of October is relativity.
World Teachers Day – Learning and Growing Together
As we honor our educators on World Teachers Day, we recognize the pivotal role they play in shaping not only our minds but also our character development. Teachers are the beacons of knowledge, and their influence extends beyond textbooks; it touches our hearts. They teach us the power of learning and growth, showing us that every challenge is an opportunity to expand our horizons. In the grand scheme of relativity, their lessons guide us on our emotional and intellectual journeys as they relate to our service to our own north stars. The term ‘Relative’ is often used to say that something can be thought of in opposite ways depending on what one compares it to. Let’s just put it out there that I prefer to relate today against being 1% better than yesterday. I’ve used this in business and in life without getting bogged down in what others think I should be. For me, it’s about growth relative to my own yesterday.
National Women’s Business Week – Breaking Barriers and Building Connections
National Women’s Business Week celebrates the indomitable spirit of women entrepreneurs. It’s a testament to the power of relativity in business and leadership. Women-owned businesses create opportunities, foster innovation, and inspire others to dream big. I believe that we are all interconnected, and when one woman breaks barriers and succeeds, it paves the way for others to do the same. It’s a reminder that our emotional strength, and determination, give others permission to achieve their own remarkable things in the professional sphere.
National Make a Difference Day – Small Acts, Big Impact
On National Make a Difference Day, we witness the true potential of relativity in action. It emphasizes that even the smallest acts of kindness, compassion, and service can create a ripple effect of positive change. Whether it’s helping a neighbor, volunteering at a local charity, or simply being there for someone in need, our collective efforts amplify the emotional wellness of our communities.
The Relativity of Emotional Wellness
Emotional wellness, I believe, is deeply entwined with our connections—to each other, to nature, and to our purpose. When we harness the power of relativity, we discover that our emotional well-being is intricately linked to our environment and our interactions with others. It reminds us that acts of kindness and empathy are not isolated events; they are part of a larger love tapestry that binds us all.
EarthKind’s Commitment to Emotional Wellness
At EarthKind, we are driven by a commitment to emotional wellness, not just for individuals but for our planet as a whole. We believe that our actions—such as developing eco-friendly pest prevention solutions and advocating for sustainable living—can have a profound impact on the emotional wellness of our EarthKind community.
As we navigate into October, let’s reflect on the power of relativity in our lives. Let’s celebrate our educators, women entrepreneurs, and the everyday heroes who make a difference. Together, we can create a world where emotional wellness is nurtured, connections are strengthened, and kindness is a force to be reckoned with!
Thank you for being part of my community, and for joining me on this journey of wellness, sustainability, and kindness. I look forward to hearing from you this October.
