Food for thought…

A follow up on a post from months ago….

A while ago I posted about how I’m just fed up with all the non-toxic lifestyle things being broadcasted everywhere i turn. I had a newborn baby and a toddler along with having surgery when my son was only 2 weeks old. I was trying to survive and paper plates, water bottles, and plastic silverware made that season just a little bit easier. Do I think striving for a non toxic lifestyle is good for yourself and your children? Heck yes. Do I think realistically that our world can revolve around it? No I don’t. Yes when we know better, we should certainly do better. The unfortunate thing is that many people live off of canned food, non perishables, whatever they can get their hands on to keep their children’s bellies full. I guess my whole point with all of that is we need to not only focus on our own family, but our community. Another thing that is extremely toxic for the body is stress. If you are completely stressing over how to afford everything all at once, how to incorporate a non toxic into your home, being overwhelmed with recipes and food choices, and prep, and the list goes on. Point blank, don’t stress yourself out over all of it. Small steps. Maybe you start with switching out some of your cleaning supplies with water and vinegar in a spray bottle, or having people take off shoes at the door, or incorporating one meal a week with good Whole Foods.

This is kind of all over the place but I’ve been thinking about it for a while and felt like I needed to follow up on that post…..

I took over my father’s blog September of 2017 after losing his battle with mental illness. This blog was originally to share my journey through grieving, finding peace, and trusting God in the process...and in many ways is exactly that. This has evolved into life as a family of 4 with 2 dogs, living in the Midwest. I will cover everything from fashion to our family routines. Join us on this crazy adventure!
