I came to the conclusion that blogging meant you really needed to have a talent, you needed to be able to engage with others, you needed to know how to write. Well I thought “no way” can I do that. Although the inner voice inside me was screaming “YES, YES you can; you must try this Lynda”. I love people, I love to talk and I have always had a passion for writing, I just never imagined anyone would want to read or hear about I had to say.
Knowing that I have no certification in anything (expect my business diploma from Heald College), I wondered what I actually could write about and not sound completely lost. This is when the “light went on” – my family. This was it; how easy, how fun and how (hopefully) inspiring and possibly entertaining it could be.
My first post was an introduction and when I saw people reacting and commenting and following along, I realized that I was smart enough and talented enough to continue forward. Stepping out of the comfort zone was a HUGE thing. I stepped out and I am so happy I did. From that point on, it was all about sharing my own journey and sharing my family as we live. Just your normal family living in today’s world but maintaining a healthy lifestyle and always learning about our food and how and what we eat.
Yes, yes we do. It has gotten easier for me as I have learned to let go of “controlling” the kitchen. Knowing that it is okay to make a mess and it’s okay to get an egg shell in the pancake batter or it’s okay if we burn something. I take the kids as often as possible to the market with me so they get a better understanding of what we are purchasing, budget and fresh healthy food. Sure we stop for the chips or ice cream and I do every so often let my kids eat frozen raviolis or fish sticks (they are kids after all), but they really understand the basics.
