I'm on a journey to find health and happiness through a more holistic and green lifestyle.

I find the world to be abrasive. =) That is to say, I feel the need to armor myself, physically and emotionally, in order to face life. Don't we all? Maybe. For whatever reason, it has become a priority in my life to rid my immediate environment of irritating things. And I'm sensitive! So there is much work to be done. But. I have thought for a long time that the things I come in contact with every day, and the stuff used to clean and maintain these things, need to be gentle and non-toxic. I have had eczema my entire life. For a long time I just dealt with it, and accepted that sometimes it's bad, and sometimes it's not, and that it will fluctuate a lot. Gradually over time I have come to find that certain things, fabrics, cleansers, materials, are more irritating to my skin than others. Stress can exacerbate it. In more recent times, I have realized that every aspect of my life improves when I improve conditions for my skin. Hah! What a concept! Thus my (long time) interest in going green, and my more recent desire to live a more holistic lifestyle. (I think I've felt a desire for a long time to live in a harmonious way with myself, my surroundings, and nature, but didn't have a name for it.) Anyhow, this blog is a journal of my trials and errors, and basic crooked path to find a balanced and peaceful existence for myself and my family. Thanks for your interest! I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas!

Enter Contest At Glad Rags

Win gift certificates to purchase reusable feminine hygiene products from Glad Rags! Why do that? Reusable feminine hygiene products are much better for the environment, cost far less than purchasing disposable products monthly, are far more comfortable, and are much better for your body! Once you switch, you'll never go back. Skeptical? So was I! But I made the change years ago, and would never consider using disposable products again. For more information on some all natural reusable feminine hygiene products, please see my post by that name HERE. I really should do a follow-up post. That is fairly outdated now. Back then I was just trying things out. I know more about them now. But shoot any questions my way. I'm happy to respond.
