In Latin, “terra” is the word for planet earth. Shepherd is used to refer to the idea that we as human beings are the caretakers and keepers of our planet and the creatures that inhabit it.
The name “Terra Shepherd” encompasses our desire and shared responsibility to do what we can to protect our environment as well as our fellow human beings.
In the very early days of planning and dreaming about what the boutique would one day be, my husband suggested this name. It stuck in my heart and mind immediately. The boutique has been Terra Shepherd from that day.
We are not alone in this thing called life; our relationships with other people and the earth matter. Think about how you can collaborate with and seek the help of others.
SMALL CHANGES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE TREMENDOUS IMPACT
Change doesn’t happen overnight, and it isn’t an all or nothing deal.
ACCOUNTABILITY IS KEY
Think, “what can I do to make the world a better place?” Tackle this before worrying about others’ actions. Like Gandhi said: be the change that you wish to see in the world.
WE ARE NEVER DONE LEARNING
Perfection isn’t a reality. Mistakes are made. All we can do is continue to learn and grow.
