I have actually been contemplating starting a blog for that last year. I know procrastination at its finest. Honestly when it comes to the things I write, I am a very private person and I do not want to be judged. I mean, that is a normal human reaction, right? I finally got the (for lack of a better word) BALLS to start today. Here is why…
I have been on my own personal journey to living a holistic lifestyle for the past two and half years. I would love to say it has been the easiest thing ever but that would be me giving you all a bunch of bull s#$@. To be frank, it has been one of the hardest things for me. Well let me restate that, there are some things that I was able to transition into very quickly and others that I am still working on. I will get into more of my journey and share my successes and my failures as I continue to post. I don’t want to scare anyone away and give you my whole life story all at once.
When you grow up a certain way and are not taught to live a holistic lifestyle, its like teaching a fish to walk on land, well at least it felt that way in the beginning. It seems impossible and like such a huge task that you ending up telling yourself “who cares”, “there are so many people eating and living the way they want and they are all fine” that you forget the bigger picture. That was me, trying to convince myself that I can eat coco puffs and soda regularly and be fine even into my old age. We all know wether we want to admit to ourselves or not that eating bad is not gonna get you where you want to be health wise.
I often think about that phrase, “who cares” we say that a lot. I care and so should you. Your friends care, your family cares, your spouses care, your children care we all care we just do not know how to deal with daunting situations. It seems so overwhelming that you would rather not even begin because just thinking about it makes you stressed out.
I am here to share with you my experiences and let you know that it is not impossible, yes it is a huge change and it will be hard and you will make mistakes but if you are consistent you will make it to your happiest place and feel amazing. I know that sounds so rainbows and butterflies but it is the truth.
P.S. I am still on this journey and I by no means claim to be perfect BUT I want to be able to let others know that they are not alone in this.
