I want to thank all of you who are following me and my blog here at ReWild Co!
As you know I have started my new company ReWild Co. and will begin launching products in January. I have been blogging and sharing with you my journey and I am thrilled to see so much interest!
I encourage you who are new to follow my blog by getting on my mail list where you’ll be alerted to each new blog. It’s in the middle of my home page. I have had a large tiktok following (70,000 followers) and have a new Instagram for ReWild Co. that I hope you will also engage with.
So, in the first three weeks of this blog and website we’ve had visitors from 20 countries already. This is so important to me having lived in China myself for a time, I have such an affinity towards many different cultures and ways of living. It is a part of the motivation behind what I call inspired design. When I had the opportunity to live in China and tour the remote villages where whole communities existed with so much less than a typical American (even our poorest Americans) but were still so generous and kind, always smiling and laughing, I knew I was witnessing something special. It was such a juxtaposition from the entitlement I often witness in the US where people are so disconnected from the things that are most significant but are most overlooked (family, nature, being present, seeing beauty, finding meaning, slowing down, being a good listener, walking softly leaving only small footprints, etc.)
I grew up on a farm and learned young that my heart connection was with nature and animals. But, it was my time living in China and going to high school there with kids from all over the world, that I learned how to look more closely at the simple things. The Chinese people taught me to not take things for granted, to smile at the little things like good food and family. I learned how to look at the world through other people’s eyes and quit taking almost EVERYTHING for granted. A wise man told me once, the key to finding happiness is to start by being grateful. China’s people, in their simple ways and hard living, taught me, through their own demonstration of gratefulness, that joy can be found in all situations. I try and use this same looking glass as I create inspired art that is an attempt at capturing this intrinsic beauty that exists in all things great and small.
