I Became Curious
One day while I was working at a client's house, I started coughing and wheezing as I was cleaning their shower. At this point in time I had been eating organic food for a few years in order to avoid toxins, but that day a light bulb went off for me. I realized there were toxins and chemicals getting into my body in other ways. That’s when I got curious.
I wasn't scared, I was curious. I began asking, "What chemicals are in this?"
It’s not that I’m afraid of what could happen…
But I want to be the healthiest me that I can be! I realized a healthy body was more than just eating healthy food. It meant being mindful of what I breathed in, and what I put on my skin. Every personal care product I used and every single item in my home that I touched would either be helping me get healthier, or it would be hurting my body.
I took charge of
THE TOXINS LURKING IN MY CABINETS
From my kitchen to my bathrooms, I began looking up and researching everything. I became curious about what things were made of, how they were made, and if they were toxic once they came to have a place in my home. I slowly started changing out toxic items for new, healthier versions.
This is what I wanted…
I wanted a healthy home. I wanted a home where everything my kids touched was safe. I wanted the air to be clean. I wanted my home to be eco-friendly. I wanted everything that came into my home to be beneficial for myself and my family.
THE MOMENT I BEGAN TO QUESTION
They say ignorance is bliss, but it’s really not. When you start to question and learn, you start to feel empowered. As I started questioning everything in my home, I realized I could change it. I could create a home that I wanted to live in. I could create a home that I wanted to raise a healthy family in. It was up to me, and I was so excited to dive in!
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME
I felt empowered. I knew there was a lot of change I wanted to make, but I felt ready to tackle it. I knew it would take time, research, and money, but I was ready. I knew that steady change meant lasting change, so I hopped on the road to a healthy home, and I haven't looked back.
