It All Started With a Blog

In keeping with the theme of gratitude this week…

Since launching Healthful Pursuit in October, I’ve found myself looking inward more than I ever have in the past [and definitely a lot more than I’d planned when I started this!].

Sitting in my home office staring into the obis and pondering life, is now a common occurrence.

3 months ago I would have told you I had no time to sit and mull over my life’s purpose. I would have said that digging deep into my beliefs surrounding health and nutrition was wasted time I could be spending doing things. I felt personal goals and aspirations were brought on by the opinion and approval of others.

You see, I am a bull headed, stubborn independent, goal oriented, and fast paced individual. Saying “no” and admitting to myself that I cannot physically do everything is a huge challenge for me.

This constant go-go-go has limited my personal growth. I’d never given myself the time to reflect, feel, analyze, and make space for me.

But over the last 3 months I’ve taken a step back from the hustle and bustle.

I’ve lost myself writing about nut butters, sugar addiction, and finding quality foods.

I’ve sat on my bedroom floor flipping through recipes as I do my clam exercises.

I’ve spent upwards of 7 hours in the kitchen at one time allowing my creativity to direct my next move.

I’ve connected with amazing people, and I’ve been inspired.

I’ve loved food.

Most importantly, I’ve made space for me. I’ve found myself and fueled my passion for life.

In just under 90 days, Healthful Pursuit has naturally grown into something so much more than I’d planned it to be. It’s become just as much a channel for my personal journey, as it is a forum of my experience and education on the pursuit of healthfulness.

I am blissfully grateful for the support I’ve received in getting Healthful Pursuit off the ground. Especially Kevin; my soul mate and best friend, that keeps me grounded much more than he realizes.

And to my early adopters – I’m so excited to continue this amazing pursuit with all of you!

What are you passionate about ? Do you give yourself time in the day to realize and practice your passion?

  1. What a fabulous website you have here. I must say that through blogging I have become much more passionate about sustainable and whole foods and horrified by factory farming. As for giving time to myself…it is definitely hard while working full time and caring for a toddler but I definitely do my best. I need to add my meditation back but I do a lot of yoga which I do consider “me time”. What I really miss though is those quiet days of just reading and relaxing.

    • Thank you Dawn! I’m sure it can be challenging to find your me time when you have a toddler running around! It’s great that you have the me time experience and that you know what activities you’d do!

  2. Thanks for the twitter follow. Really nice blog, fabulous photos and I’m with you on your philosophy. We can create and eat beautiful, healthful and artisan food despite our food restrictions and health issues.

    • Gluten free sourdough! Fun! I love the olive recipe. I’m going to have to try it out. Thanks Sharon :)

  3. I’m glad to come across your blog. I am always happy to read more and be inspired by people pursuing a healthier lifestyle. For me, it’s a necessity because of diabetes but it’s inspiring to find others trying out new things and experimenting as I am. I am glad your blog brings you such peace!

    • Thank you :) Many of my diabetic clients also have that same drive to improve their lifestyle, diet, and learn ways to improve their life. It’s all so great! Who said diabetes couldn’t be fun?

      I’m glad you stopped by!
