Since we’ve been talking about setting green goals and making green changes, I’ve been thinking a lot about the journey that we take when moving toward living a more green, natural, simple lifestyle.
A while ago, my friend Jenica, who is one of my greatest supports and role models for living a green and natural lifestyle, and I were talking about how we started down this path toward green living. We both shared our stories, and it was interesting how similar they were.
For both of us, the changes began when we were each expecting our first child – which interestingly enough, our girls are 3 days apart in age, and the best of friends, but we didn’t even know each other then. And for both of us, one of the first steps that we took was a decision to use cloth diapers.
From there, we each took different paths to where we are today, and we definitely don’t do things exactly the same way even now, but it is such an encouragement and blessing to have someone that I can talk to about my lifestyle changes and choices, who completely understands and supports me, when not everyone around me does.
Over the next several weeks, I’m going to share the story of my journey with you, from where I started to how I got to the place that I am now.
But, today’s question is…
How did you begin your journey toward green living?
What was the first step or change that you made?
What motivated you to start making green changes in your lifestyle?
What helped to change your mindset from the way that you were living previously?
I’m looking forward to hearing about your journeys!
