There would be no need for love if perfection were possible. Love arises from our imperfection, from our being different and always in need of the forgiveness, encouragement and that missing half of ourselves that we are searching for, as the Greek myth tells us, in order to complete ourselves.Eugene Kennedy
Contributor for Cincinnati Moms Blog. Co-owner of Oh Just Be. Often pensive or hyper, busy and seldom bored yet secretly jealous of the zen-state of yoga instructors. Constantly seeking the paradox of this or that. Mom to some high energy, incredibly creative souls and happily married to my polar opposite. In our family, we believe in the messy, the unplanned, the ripples, the imperfection.
When I strove for perfection, I lost myself to madness. When I let go, the imperfection healed me.
This is a journey to continue that search and uncover what will be. Sometimes it may be a new way of thinking or a different light to see an issue, at times a product that has changed our daily views, but in the end – it is our journey… and I am sharing it with you.
Be Imperfection… be your truth.
A few of my loves….
Essential Oils – there are many, many brands to chose from – we use doTerra. We adore the philosophy behind how they produce their oils, their handy work in helping people all over the world. The oils have changed our approach to how we work with our kiddos and our families. Message me if you ever want to know more.
Safe Makeup – I RARELY wear makeup – I just am
lazy rushed…but when I do, I def don’t want to be putting hazardous items on my face. BeautyCounter has the same philosophy and has taken out many of the harmful ingredients found in most makeups. Their charcoal mask will gross you out in the best way possible.
Less hazardous chemicals for everyday life – two companies have brought me back time and again: Arbonne and Norwex. Certain Arbonne products were the ONLY ones that worked for my kiddos and Norwex had cleaning solutions that I trusted the kids to use!
Kiddo Books – if you haven’t heard of them yet, Usborne books are amazing for the kids of all ages. We started with them years ago and still continue to search them out, especially for our highly visual-spatial kiddos.
Primal Life Organics – dirty mouth toothpaste! https://www.primallifeorganics.com/ First time in years my mouth has truly felt dentist clean after brushing!
