Recently, my life felt like an hourglass that had ceased to move. Ideas and inspiration were stuck at the top, bottle-necked, waiting to flow to the next level. What does it take to get unstuck?
A shake, a jiggle, an inversion?
In the past, I have mentioned that New Year’s Resolutions aren’t really my thing. I prefer to live in the present. It’s a positive act to set the intention and there is much to benefit from such achievements. However, I often view resolutions as ideas that someone sees as a far-off and perhaps even unattainable long-term goal. Set those intentions, but live in the present at the same time. Make changes today, even if they seem small.
The calendar proclaims that winter is approaching. However, here in California, the weather still whispers autumn. The season of autumn, also known as fall, is synonymous with the vision of trees dropping their summer foliage. It’s during autumn that the leaves are abundant.
In the past, I have written about greenwashing. It’s a term that became common when the push for more environmentally friendly products came about. According to Dictionary.com, greenwashing is “a superficial or insincere display of concern for the environment that is shown by an organization”.
So I have a confession to make. And this isn’t one of my Time To Come Clean posts.
This is my hundredth post on my blog. A bit of a milestone for me. I wanted to do something a little more out of the ordinary to honor this occasion. It was with the encouragement of a few loved ones that I decided to write a “things you probably didn’t know about me” post. Honestly, at first, I was uncomfortable with the idea- having to talk about myself. Wondering who would actually want to read it. Then I realized that reading this type of post is my most favorite read from my fellow bloggers.
What is alternative medicine? According to Merriam-Webster, alternative medicine is any of various systems of healing or treating disease (such as chiropractic, homeopathy, or faith healing) not included in the traditional medical curricula of the U.S. and Britain. I often write about methods that may be considered alternative modalities to enhance our well-being. This may include a plant, food, activity, or supplement. Rarely do I utilize only one method, instead, I apply the holistic approach to my life. This means that instead of viewing a symptom or an issue as needing to be “fixed” or eliminated, I view the body as a whole. The whole includes our physical, mental, and spiritual aspects.
