I am a woman who wants to share my journey in seeking balance in my life. I need it (balance) and don’t you? This is my about me page. ^_^
Well, I want to share some ways to live both a healthy and fun life, since that is truly balanced, less stressful living! The primary focus of this blog is to live a less stressful life, which includes taking care of yourself (healthy body, spirit, & mind!) as well as your home & finances, so that you are less stressed overall. This is my way of sharing and caring for those who also live on this Earth!
Some things about me! I love: staying ‘in the know’ about important health and wellness topics, spiritual topics, crafting, cooking, baking, eating, traveling, reading, and having crazy life adventures. I am a geek who is into Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Dr. Who, Harry Potter, and some comic/anime stuff too. I have plans to dye my hair a bright and unnatural color (again, as I have done it before as a teen) sometime soon.
I grew up in a very rural corner of Northern California and have spent the majority of my life here, so a lot of the things I talk about are influenced by my time here. I grew in a poor-ish family and that taught me the value of watching what you spend your money on. Also I was a homeschooled kid, so being poor and homeschooled made me a bit of an outcast in some groups, but it also taught me to be fiercely individualistic! So if I’m sharing a strong opinion on my blog that is where it comes from!
I love mountain and beaches, as I also lived several years in Southern California (in Ventura County near Santa Barbara) after meeting and marrying my husband. I love the beaches, but the city life wasn’t for me, and my husband was over it too, so we moved back to Northern California in 2014.
Speaking of that I am happily married to my wonderful hubby, D. He is the light of my life and the inspiration for my blog! He is a traditional artist, video game designer, singer/musician, extremely talented dude, and a GREAT husband! We’ve been married over 7 years now and it truly seems like we got married yesterday (ok, ok maybe like… a month or two ago? ^_^ ).
Also, my husband & I have a very rambunctious young pup named Coffee who is both adorable and a challenge to train up at times (but my husband and I love him all the same!). Pets add so much to your life, at least I know this guy is a great stress reducer when he wants cuddle time! So sweet!
I earned two college degrees while living in So-Cal, one in humanities and another in business management, as I have a passion for business. I worked with my dad in his house painting business as a kid, sold greeting cards and cleaned houses as a teen, worked in 4-5 minimum wage food and retail jobs as a teen, tried my hand as a door-to door salesperson (that is something I will NOT be doing again, man!), selling Avon, selling protein shakes, working in cold calls, working as a merchandiser/sales support at Macy’s, being a caregiver for a disabled woman, and the list goes on. Some of those jobs were good (caregiving for example) and others were not (not into cold calling), as I couldn’t get behind the product and service I was selling (selling door to door stuff).
I have a passion for both business and a balanced life as I want to show people it is possible to be a successful person AND not be a stressed out mess of a human being! It is possible to make a living and not just totally lose yourself, and your mind, in the process! I have a passion for people and helping them be successful, as I head down the road to success myself (I want to take you down that road with me)!
As I mentioned before, one of my topics is spirituality, and by that I mean Christianity mostly since I am a believer and my walk with God influences everything I do and say. My relationship with God has helped me through the hard times in my life, so it is something I will talk about from time to time. If you aren’t a believer or Christian feel free to skip those posts if you like!
I will also discuss some other blogs (mine and others) as well as articles and interesting information that I hope you will enjoy. my goal
My main goal is to help you as I learn to face challenges, have fun, help others, and eat yummy food! I want to show you the way to have fun and be less stressed while taking care of life too! Also,I hope you enjoy the things I share with you all! Have a great day! Guten Tag! ^_^
