I have fallen in love with a more organic lifestyle. And in saying that, I don't mean eating less pesticides and such. I mean living the way it seems to me life was meant to be lived.
For example FarMama's posts about how her children are warmed by sweaters made by their beloved sheep's wool and dyed, spun and knit together by their own mother's hands.
It's so sentimental and sweet. It's living in harmony with nature. I crave it.
It's sort of a culture shock. Breaking away from the Tv and computer and air conditioning is a hard thing to do when it's habit, but I never feel more fullfilled than when I lay down for bed after a long day outside. Spent on one- on- one activity with my kids. The fresh air, the sun. I read once that addiction was really just a disconnect from your "source".
For me it's God.
For some it may be mother nature, the universe.
There is a natural longing for a strong connection to your source, so logically living a more natural lifestyle would really fill the soul.
I found so much happiness in reading these blogs and discovering new toys, new ways of imaginative play with my kids. While I may not be ready to take the leap to change our whole lifestyle. It's slowly seeping in and I couldn't be more excited about it.
