About us… Meet Barb – Our CCC (Chief Czar of Creativity)

This is the part where I get to write about “me”! If you have ever tried to sit down and write about who you really are …..it is much harder than you think! After many re-starts here is what I have come up with!

Raised on a farm in Southwestern Ontario, I was transplanted to Winnipeg city life in 1999; 29 years old with 3 kids in tow, then 4, 2 and 6 months old. That was 20 years ago. Twenty years of many twists and turns, joys and sorrows, life experienced and lessons learned.

Today life truly is amazing but it wasn’t always. I have walked through a very dark season where I had to take stock, be very real and honest with myself. In the end, I walked away from life as I knew it with little more than my clothes and books. A chance to start all over again. That was just over 3 years ago. And so here I find myself on a road less traveled. At times glancing over my shoulder looking back at my roots, but always forging forward, on a quest for a more simple and natural way of life.

Stress, striving, constantly busy has taken a huge toll on my body and mental well being. No I have not been Doctor diagnosed as sick with any ailments or illnesses but many times I do not feel WELL. Well as in; instead of waking up with energy ready for a new day, I wake up tired, wanting to pull the covers over my head and stay there. Low energy levels and physically aching from head to toe at times. My kids may think I am as old as the hills, but I’m not really! At 48 I should have more get up and go than I do!

I have read many testimonials on how a change of diet – the food put in my mouth, not the calorie count – has radically changed, even brought healing to people’s health. A change in life style, thinking patterns, moving away from the status quo has brought health, wholeness and a sense of well-being to many lives.

All of that change seems so daunting and overwhelming. Where to start? Cold turkey, my pocket book will not allow it! But let’s be honest, I am not disciplined enough to do a radical about face change to a completely organic, self sustaining, chemical free lifestyle anyway! But what if I was proactive and started the journey step by step? Could it be that I could restore and maybe even reverse the damage of the last stressful decade in my life? Could it be possible? I think it could!

Oh I could focus on the negative and I sure had plenty today! But it takes more muscles to frown than smile and laugh lines are far more beautiful than a scowl! I am thinking if I conscientiously focus on the good things that bring joy to my life that I could in fact influence my health and state of well-being.

So back to the original purpose for this little blurb….. who am I?
