Stuff has been happening to me, little changes, that I haven’t talked about because they were hardly noticeable. Except now they’re starting to be noticeable. I may not have mentioned this before, but I’m a Libra. I know, all you rational people out there are rolling your eyes at me, and normally I’d be one of you, except, and this is why this is relevant, the duality of the Libra has started manifesting itself more and more. Hence the changes.
Lately, I’ve discovered new things that interest me, things I’m trying to put into practical use in my life, things I never would have considered a few years ago, not in a million years! In a way I’ve finally decided to embrace my contradictions, the opposing forces in my brain that drive me to buy only organic fruits and vegetables and then, with the next bite drown myself in the epitome of industrial foods like hershey’s chocolate syrup.
I’ve been reading a lot of environmentally friendly, crunchy, granola content and it’s starting to rub off. Hence the changes. Hence this post, in fact, which in my usual completely round about way is mostly to tell you that you’re going to be seeing some new content on here. Some new, crunchier content. (Along with run-on sentences I apparently really like fragments too). This is not to say that I’m completely abandoning my materialistic ways, let’s just say I’m reassigning my resources.
To give you an idea, some of the things I’ve been researching are: natural remedies for a variety of ailments, real food, the role of gluten and dairy in our lives, natural beauty treatments, frugality and what it means in our society, and a variety of related subjects. Although, let me reassure you, I’m not turning into a completely different person… I’m just looking into ways of living a healthier, happier, less expensive life more attuned with nature. Also, this way, I can spend all the money I save on the really important things. Like shoes.
Of course I’ve upgraded the look of this blog to go along with the new content (not that I’m completely shifting gears or anything, the old content stays, I’m just expanding), thanks to Meredith of Bueno Baby. The unveiling on Monday along with a post on raw milk, or how to use honey on your face, or possibly on how to make really yummy super healthy chicken stock… something like that. I’ll save the posts on how I’ve stopped using shampoo for the near future, when you’ve adjusted to me going all nineties, granola, lefty, Birkenstock wearing, but just once a week, I can’t handle it more than once a week. So for now, Toodles!
