I used to think that as soon as I got a good routine down, I’d be all set. I’d be on my way. Life would finally run smoothly!
Or, as soon as I ate a 100% healthy diet and worked out at least 3 times a week, I would have the energy and mental clarity needed to finally achieve all my goals.
If only I could remember to take my vitamin and drink 8 glasses of water every day, I would finally feel well and be able to get it together.
As soon as I organized my home, I would finally be able to show hospitality to others and build friendships and connect with my family more.
See a pattern here?
I was putting off life until things were just right.
Now I know better.
Now I know that life is a big mess. Now I know that as soon as I get the hang of one season in life, it will change. Now I know that I don’t have to get it right all the time to make a big impact and accomplish my goals.
It’s never going to be perfect, but it can always be beautiful. We can blossom right where we are.
We can spread good, achieve our dreams, and feel great doing it – no perfection required!
I’m passionate about natural living because I never fail to be amazed at how perfectly God provides for us.
One of the things I’ve learned on my natural living journey is that 1 in 5 Americans will develop cancer during their lifetime, and 1 in 4 of those will die from it. Those numbers continue to rise and I believe that the ingredients in our environment, personal care products, cleaners, food, and even medicines are largely in part to blame for this fact.
We have too much to do to suffer from poor health!
While it’s important not to go crazy over health issues, it’s well worth our while to learn how to care for our body + mind.
And me?? I’m 24, & I like writing & drinking too much coffee. I live in a big, old house that we like to call our nerd nest in the midwest with my husband, Kent, where we work hard, play hard, and love on our 3 kids – Mercury, Timothy, and Evelyn.
I also believe in working hard, doing what makes you happy and falling in love with life. I believe everyone has a personal responsibility to be the best version of themselves that they can and to share their unique gifts with the world.
I can’t wait to meet Jesus face to face and in everything I do, I want to honor Him. I fail daily and He loves me anyway.
