Being Closer to Nature Means Being Closer to Ourselves

Being Closer to Nature Means Being Closer to Ourselves


Front Desk Manager / Recruitment / Finance.

Carolina is from Sao Paulo and her parents are from Japan. She’s been with Rosemary for 8 months after quitting her corporate job. She remembers that every sunday she used to wake up depressed because the next day was the start of another working week. So after she decided to quit her job, sell her car and think about what she really wanted, she found Rosemary which was much more aligned with the way she wanted to live!



What one thing do you do every day or most days for your own wellbeing?
I meditate.

And for the wellbeing of others or your community?
I welcome people, I’m always at the front desk receiving people.

When you were younger what did you imagine that you would do when you grew up?
A lawyer, I had like the dream to work in big companies wearing suits!

What inspires you to live your optimal way of life?
Peace. I sleep in peace, I wake up in peace. I am aligned with the responsibilities that I am taking.

What makes you feel connected to nature?
Nature for me is not a place that you visit, it’s actually home. So being closer to nature is actually being closer to ourselves.

Which one book has most influenced the way that you live?
Musashi, it’s the story of the greatest samurai in Japan. He’s very famous in Japan, I follow his guidance. There’s 7 rules for how a samurai lives and this book is a reference for me.

Is there one thing that you could never travel without?
I’m not attached to things, I can go with anything.

What are you grateful for today?
That it’s friday, I have a full team, I’m really grateful.

Tell me something you are proud of:
I’m proud of where I am now because now I feel like I am the owner of my time and my destiny. If I want to be here it’s because I want to be here, no one is telling me I have to be.

Sum up your experience of Rosemary in three words:
Different cultures. Nature. Connection.
