Like for many others, 2018 was as pivotal year for me, filled with challenges, accomplishments, progress, memories, transition and connections.
It was truly a great year!
It taught me many lessons including the importance of a clean and safe lifestyle.
Let me clarify, it’s not like I was living the life of a rock-star or being irresponsible with my life decisions, but I was just not wise enough to know the difference between the way that I was living and how I should and deserved to be living.
As I grew in my recently launched business and my coaching practice started to take shape, I realized how much I was learning from my connections, those people that I met along the way including my own coaching clients.
The more I focused on connecting with people, the more messages I would receive and the more they were aligned with living clean and safe.
Throughout this period, I too started to become more aware of my body’s voice - it was just so clear, loud and sometimes annoying because my critter brain was just not ready for that kind of talk.
My body started telling me how much it didn’t like certain things, but when I would vocalize it to others rather than take action, it retaliated on me. Like for real!
It came in many forms, such as:
week long tension migraines, hives, itching, bloated-ness and gas, lower back pain, hair loss, anxiety, loss of interest, love-hate relationship with food, Bladder & Kidney Infections, Nausea all the time, hormonal mood swings, motions sickness, etc.
It was clear that I needed to take action, otherwise I was never going to live a life on my terms. So going back to all those wonderful people that I’ve met up to date, it just seemed as if most of them were already on or at the least on the path of clean & safe living.
Like any other overachiever and book nerd, I started to ask questions - basically interviewing them as to what products they used, what did they eat and why, how much water or which water they drank, what cleaning products they used, down to what skincare and makeup line they were using.
I was desperate, a certified life and wellness coach who was going through it herself while helping others, but couldn’t seem to help herself. That’s a great testimonial, I sarcastically thought to myself! (I beat myself up a little bit as you can imagine)
So in my primary research I came across many Incredible resources that I was completely missing out on, all which lead me to living clean. I was so excited and motivated to get on that path, that I literally came clean!
I remember exactly the day that my husband and son walked into the house after a day at work and school and right after the usual welcoming hugging and kissing sesh; I came clean and I revealed to them that I purged everything in the house that was either harmful and/or toxic. They were surprised to not have found their usual go-to items such as toothpaste, deo, bubble bath soap (you could imagine how that went with a 4-year old), just to name a few.
Shortly after experiencing the backlash, I jumped on my computer and started placing orders from the companies that I did trust and were on board with supporting the mission of living clean and safe.
Ever since I made that decision, I’ve experienced a huge shift in my life and in my family. Together we read labels, we are conscious of what we put in and on our bodies, I no longer feel uncertain or guilty about what I’m giving my family, my symptoms of toxic living have diminished and I generally feel empowered and confident about the choices that I am making.
This could be you too! Living clean and safe is all about the products and resources you choose to bring into your home and lifestyle as well as mindset. But together we could make it happen.
