CHANGE: MIND. HEART. SOUL.

Maya Angelou said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” Those words seem so simple, yet they’re the most challenging things to apply in our own lives. They don’t have to be. 

Change can seem like one of those insurmountable tasks staring you down with a burdensome glare, but change is the one and only way the world becomes more beautiful, our lives become more meaningful, society becomes more civilized and unified, and the things we’ve once imagined become possible. 

In my own life, I’ve come to understand (and appreciate) that change is inevitable. We can choose to fight it and stay stagnant and bored, or we can choose to let it filter in like pockets of sunshine to open our eyes, nourish our heart, and wake up our soul. It can sometimes feel more terrifying than a zombie apocalypse, but did you know that our physiological response to fear is the same as our physiological response to courage? Maybe change is brevity masked in uncertainty, and that makes you brave. 

This month’s issue tackles some of those inner fears through humor, film, curiosity, psychotropics, and exploration. We talk to a trio that began a company and developed a brand that represents who they are and where they are in life. We talk about the agricultural shift and the confusion of distinguishing hemp from cannabis and all the tangled legalities farmers face, thanks to a twisted bill with outdated information. 

This month, we give you a dose of everything—and much like the visual cues of a new season, we hope you see change as something to embrace. Whether it be systemic or personal, this is your opportunity to try something new. Enjoy every minute of it! 

May you be curiouser and curiouser, 

Dawn Garcia
