Diary of a Virgo

Make it a Lifestyle

There’s gotta be something we’re all doing wrong I thought. We just can’t keep living this way.  I was seeing so much sickness, depression, death even, all around me that I knew some changes had to be made if I wanted to live the life I imagined.  Healthy, happy, vibrant with my family. Over the past several months, I’ve come to realize living a well-balanced, natural life is certainly a lifestyle…and an expensive one!  It takes work (a lot of it) conscious, well-intended efforts put into staying committed and determined, education about what works for you and yours…and let’s not forget, money.  In all honesty, the latter has gotta be one of the hardest factors for us as we try to also be cost conscious with 2 teenagers off to college in the next year!  Of course we can’t put a price on our health so that leads me to finding creative ways to make this lifestyle happen.  My first attempt will be planting a garden with fresh veggies and herbs!  I so can’t wait to get started!

Until then, my husband, niece and I have been toying with clean eating but hadn’t quite taken the plunge. Thank god I have some serious gurus in my life who educate me on living better and continue to encourage me to KEEP IT UP…DON’T GIVE UP!  As much as my husband despises social media, I love that it’s been a platform for so many of us like-minded, conscious peeps to share, educate and inspire.  I would be lost!

It’s funny because sometimes I feel like such a goob cause I find excitement in the smallest things. What oil should I diffuse today?   What am I going to plant in my garden?  But that’s because I’m loving everything about the road to living well.  EVERYTHING. I visualize myself and my family having a natural, clean, healthy lifestyle (coupled with living on the beach) but I have to be honest… the journey getting there has been pretty freaking overwhelming.  I know once I get in the groove and really figure out what the heck I’m doing, it will be habit forming for me and my family to be on a path to wellness and natural living!  One other small obstacle though is having teenage boys who are so used to eating a certain way and taking meds that these past few weeks, I’ve gotten the side eye like… “What are you doing mom!?!?!?”  My Zoë has been much more receptive and often times equally excited as me to try a new oil or a new recipe. As much as this overall lifestyle is life-changing, it’s even more intriguing, inspiring and empowering to know that I am in complete control of how I live my life.  Every single choice I make directs my path to a well body, mind & spirit.  My girl, Michelle, sent me this mantra and I just love it…

I now live in limitless love, light, and joy. All is well in my world.

    First time on your blog…I love it. My BFF shared and I got a peak into your world. I have raised four children and truly know some of the challenges, but the joy makes everything worth while. It is a beautiful Friday morning, the sun is very bright warming the chill in the air. I look forward to sharing with others making the best of the things we cannot change by making our impression on our children, friends and those we love. Its not always easy staying positive but in my 66 years I have managed (with lots of effort) to find the good in most situations and definitely the beauty in all people. Capricorn

    Thank you for sharing! Im feeling extremely positive reading your blog. Last August I have devoted changing my eating habits and I cut out everything meat with the exception of seafood (I eat mainly salmon). This has given me the added bonus to take it a step further. Thank you for sharing. We are what we put out.

  5. Hi Angela-
    Love the blog. Don’t know if you remember me, Jennifer Ransaw Class of ’88 WHS! Can’t believe that it has been so long since high school…Now living and working on the east coast, mom of three and personally going through many of the things that you are discussing…Keep it up and inspiring. I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago and forgot about it. A few days ago, I somehow found it again and was delighted. So refreshing.
