[Patricia] Day 30: My Bitter Sweet #Organic30Day
Today is a bitter-sweet day. Why you ask? I’m sad that it’s the end of our #Organic30day challenge. Day 30 is already here and came so quickly. It’s been 30 awesome days of exploration into the world of natural beauty and household supplies. At first when we started this challenge, I really didn’t know what to expect. Honestly how motivated I would be to continue trying new products and writing about them daily. Creating this challenge definitely helped keep the momentum going throughout the month and I’m so grateful I did it
At the start of the #Organic30day challenge I didn’t know very much about the dangers of specific chemicals, alternatives we could use and the best go to references online to learn more. It almost felt daunting to try to uncover the world of organic and natural products. The “ignorance is bliss” attitude didn’t seem like a bad direction to go in. I honestly think I could have taken this path for sometime without being directly affected by the chemicals I’m exposed to. On the flip side, I’ve always been a fan of controlling my destiny and paving the path I wanted for my future. This includes taking preventive measures now, so I can live out my 80’s hanging out on a beach in Hawaii.
I’m so glad I went through this challenge and kicked myself in the butt to uncover the dangers of many of the products I used on a daily basis. Not only do I feel more educated, but searching for alternative natural products has become 2nd nature to me and is no longer a cumbersome task. Even more so – I totally enjoy it. The thought that there’s so much more out there for me to uncover, gets me excited about the road to healthy living I’m paving for myself and my family.
The heightened awareness I’ve had for beauty and household product ingredients has also caused me to be more aware of the preservatives and non organic foods I eat and the level of daily exercise I need to feel at the top of my game. So for now, it’s not goodbye! We want to keep sharing our discoveries with you. You’ll see our blog and site evolve in the next couple months, so stay tuned. We have tons more Ecopique natural goodness to share with you!
Healthy environment. Healthy food. Healthy body. Healthy Living.
