I guess the first thing I really want you to know about me is that I don’t have a fancy degree or a holistic profession. I am just an normal girl trying to get through this crazy fast paced life and make the best choices I can. I work in Public Service which can be very stressful!
I am 27 years young and I decided in 2016 that I really wanted to change my life and get healthier! NO, I did not make any New Years Resolutions, it just began to happen. Not to say I was extremely unhealthy before, buuuut I realized that my body was REALLY trying to talk to me, and I really needed to listen!
To start my journey, I began to buy healthier/organic foods, and if you live on a budget, this can get expensive. Let’s be very clear, I still enjoy eating a pizza quite often, I am not a health FREAK, but I choose to make better choices than I used to. (I am not meaning to offend anyone by that statement, I just love certain foods to much to give them up! ) So to continue, I have slowly made changes during the year because anyone who has done the same, has realized it is not something you can change in a day, week, or even a month. You have to just slowly integrate these better choices/products into your routine/budget.
I also want to be very clear that I am not claiming to be a expert AT ALL! I am learning every day with the help of a great support system and doing research! I have learned that just because products are on the shelf, does not mean they are safe. ...WHAAAT?? I have also learned that just because a product is marked pure or organic, does not mean that it always is, thats JUST CRAZY?!? I mainly learned you have to really know what food and products your buying and to do a little research before you shop!
I think the biggest change I made in my life was to quit smoking!!! WHOOOO HOOO :) I have been smoke free since March 2016 now and I couldn’t be happier! Now I NEVER think about that nasty habit and I am so thankful I don't do it anymore for SOOOOOO many reasons.
The next thing that I did was to discover Young Living Essential Oils
and those have made a huge impact on my life. They have so many benefits and are truly 100% toxin free! Did I mention you can use them in every aspect of life!!! They are AAAAMAZING and soooo versatile. Not only did I find something that is natural and works, but it gave me focus in life. I now live, eat, breathe, these oils! I do classes, I love making graphics for how to use oils, and I now have this amazing blog to share... ALL thanks to finding Young Living! It has given me a new outlook on life and a new direction that I never imagined for myself!
That about sums up things about me!
Thank You for taking time to read a little bit about me and I hope I am able to influence or help you as we go!
