The Beginning

“It has to start somewhere. It has to start sometime.
What better place than here? What better time than now?”

So, this is the beginning of me blogging, and potentially (well, quite actually) the beginning of the rest of my life. Here’s a little intro on me and what this blog may be about. Truthfully, I don’t yet know what it will all be about. What I do know is that I have a passion for a lot of things, and this will be a vehicle for sharing those things. I’ll also be sharing a lot of my day to day life. Read on to learn more.

Before I lose you, I’ll share that I am passionate about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You’ll soon learn that I often speak (or type) in lyrics and random quotes that bubble up in my brain from time to time (you caught the Rage lyrics up top, right?). I often don’t know the source of these quotes without the help of Google; I just know that I understand them and they fit the situation for whatever reason I deem appropriate. Okay – now back to my passions.

I am passionate about health, nutrition, yoga, meditation, herbal medicine, minimalism, sustainability, zero-waste living, sunshine, trees, and clouds. There’s more, but you get the idea. I enjoy finding ways to diverge from the norm of consumerism and the unhealthy, unsustainable habits that populate mainstream culture. I desire a simpler way of life… a healthier way of life.

I’m finding that a lot of other people want these things too, they just may not know that there’s other optionsĀ out there. I hope that in sharing my experiences, thoughts, recipes, home remedies, etc… that others will be able to benefit in transitioning to a more natural lifestyle.
