Life is so crazy busy for most people. And while a lot of that busy-ness is probably self-inflicted, there is no denying that work, play, school, kids, partners, hobbies and friends can take a lot out of our precious self-care time. I believe that self-care is not only important, it should also be a fun and pleasurable end in and of itself. That’s why I’m moved to start writing here.
Legend – by which of course I mean the Internet – quotes the Buddha as saying, “There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth… not going all the way, and not starting.”
So I’m starting this blog to share what I’ve gleaned after more than 20 years of study: thousands of books, hundreds of lectures and classes, and a voracious appetite for sifting through the noise of conflicting information to get to the heart of what it is to live a happy, healthy, and purposeful life. My aim is to write what I know, and maybe even save you from making some of the mistakes that I have made along the road to getting here.
I’ll be posting recipes for food, home, and body care, plus tips for living a green, healthy, frugal, and fun-filled life. I’ll be writing about fertility and conception, natural pregnancy and empowered birth, healthy babies and happy kids, and relationships of all kinds that are filled with more love, more mojo, and more authentic joy.
There will be opinions. There will be talk about bodies and beauty and media representation thereof. There will also be laughing. There will likely be wine sometimes. There will definitely be chocolate.
In fact, I’ve pretty much summed up what it is like to know me in person, so I do hope you feel moved to check in often to see what’s cooking. Please leave a comment and let me know what you would like to read about. I’m here as a resource for you.
Thanks so much for popping by!
