Re: Studying after 49

One more last thing. I think Matthew made it kind of like a mystery to sometimes get to the correct answer and I think he did this on purpose to get us to really search and search and search in different ways than what we were use to doing. I think the more we researched, the better we prepared ourselves to help people. Sometimes there is more than just one thing going on with people and learning how to look at disease from different angles and more than one angle helped me to become a really good researcher. I had lots of trouble finding the correct answer to questions and I'm glad I did. Now I learned how to really research and dig and find and that knowledge is invaluable. Embrace the struggle, it will make you!

Re: Studying after 49

Thanks Bonnie, I really appreciate your input. I know what you mean about the researching and I feel that I have always been good at that. Sometimes I just get wore down when it is taking too long to find the answer. I do find that the more I speak with other people about it it seems to help. Sometimes I am reluctant to do that because I am afraid people are not going to take me seriously. Yesterday, I went to a medicine making class and it was so nice just to be around like minded people.

As for having a child to study with that sounds like a terrific idea and you are truly blessed to have that. Unfortunately, I don't even know any young children and I don't have anyone that I can study with. You know how it is with schedules and all.

It's great to be able to do this program on our own time, but I do wish we could have more in person classes, like at least once a month. It would also be great to have some kind of internship. I get so excited just thinking about being able to help people with their problems. I can hardly wait. I hope my confidence will come to me though, because I've got some people asking me questions now and I just can't remember anything. I always say I will have to look it up. And I know that I need to know more information about them.

Thanks again,

I think Matthew does have an internship available after we get our master herbalist diploma.

Where did you attend a workshop? Yes, it would be really nice to be around like minded people.

In the last newsletter Matthew did give a couple of helps for studying. Don't know if you saw it.

My phone number is: 612-402-9969. Give me a call if I can help!

Your herbal friend, Bonnie
