Wild Sage & Co.

Dreams Grow Here


And Then There Were Two

Posted on 17 February, 2016 at 13:15

It's funny how things happen. It's funny what will prompt us to do something, what spark will ignite action.

I was in my local Trader Joe's last week when a woman approached me saying "I just parked next to your car. Do you work for Wild Sage & Co.?" She asked that because my license plates are WLD SAGE and the license plate rim on the back plate says "Wild Sage & Co. Empowerment Laughter Freedom". So I smiled and replied, "I AM Wild Sage & Co."

She is a lovely woman who owns a botanical essential oil product business called Sage Canyon; so to see Wild Sage caught her eye and sparked her interest. She said she thought for a few minutes about approaching a stranger, and then decided to do so. We spent a few minutes in conversation, talking about our businesses, exchanging business cards. I really appreciated that she got out of her own way to extend herself to "a stranger" to make a connection.

Seeing "Wild Sage" caught her attention and sparked her to check out a possible business connection, wondering if I was also in the botanical line. Our conversation sparked this blog post. It reminded me that connection can be that simple. Get out of your own way, your own concerns, and GO TALK TO SOMEONE. Stop worrying about "what will they think....?" GO TALK TO SOMEONE.

I realize how ridiculously simple this is. I know there are people who have no difficulty doing this. I've watched people casually begin conversations with "strangers" in the coffee line about something like the weather, part ways, and think nothing about it. Sure, that's easy enough.

But when we think it matters, when we want to talk about something of "significance", i.e. our business OR (Heaven forbid) our love life (gasp!) then approaching a "stranger" in a grocery store or at a party may seem a little more..... risky? scary? vulnerable? odd? I suggest it may feel odd because our culture has become so insulated that women in particular feel the need to protect themselves from strangers. I understand that.

So when it feels like our lives are at stake, our job, our romantic future... then, THEN the price of poker goes up! When the ante to get into the game, any game, is to GO TALK TO SOMEONE, does that sometimes feel like too high a price to pay? Because, oh my goodness, what if they actually TALK BACK!?!

In full disclosure, I must tell you I have been guilty of this. I have listened to the "noise" in my head when it says:
"What will they think...?"
"Oh, no, I'm not dressed right to have this conversation with them right now."
"Why would they listen to me?"
"I couldn't possibly be his "type". Why bother?"
"I'll just make myself "available" and if they want to talk to me, they can come to me."

If you haven't noticed, the common denominator in all of this noise is fear. Fear, worry, concern, take your pick, but they're all good "reasons" that will stop us from GO TALK TO SOMEONE.

So here's my word of wisdom for the day: Practice.
Practice talking to someone in the coffee line when it doesn't affect the state of your nation. Practice talking to people when it's not necessary. Practice SMILING at strangers! That right, smiling. Just let your face open up to them. Practice BEING OPEN to a new conversation, a new connection with a new person. 

Be aware, or be reassured, that not every connection will be a lasting one. But every one you make will make it easier to make the next one and be the stepping stones that will lead you to the right places and the right people. And with every new connection, then there will be two. Two hearts, connected for any purpose, even for a few brief minutes, are always better than one. So GO TALK TO SOMEONE.

Thank you, Claudia, for reminding me of this.

With Aloha Love & Blessings,

I must show thanks to you just for bailing me out of such a crisis. Because of scouting through the search engines and seeing ideas that were not helpful, I thought my life was gone. Being alive without the solutions to the problems you've solved by way of the post is a critical case, as well as the ones which could have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn't discovered your blog. Your own know-how and kindness in playing with all the pieces was tremendous. I am not sure what I would've done if I had not encountered such a point like this. I can also at this moment look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for your professional and result oriented guide. I won't think twice to recommend your web blog to anybody who would need counselling on this issue.

Our own honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

My spouse and i felt really relieved Peter could round up his homework because of the precious recommendations he obtained from your very own site. It's not at all simplistic just to choose to be releasing things that many many others could have been making money from. We know we have you to thank because of that. The type of explanations you've made, the simple site menu, the relationships you will give support to instill - it's all remarkable, and it is letting our son in addition to the family imagine that this article is interesting, which is exceedingly important. Thank you for all!

I have to express some thanks to the writer for rescuing me from such a matter. As a result of checking through the online world and finding concepts which were not beneficial, I believed my life was well over. Living without the presence of strategies to the problems you've sorted out all through your good posting is a critical case, as well as the kind which may have adversely affected my career if I hadn't come across your web site. That understanding and kindness in playing with almost everything was valuable. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the expert and result oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your web blog to any individual who should get guidance on this matter.
