the list: thing 7

eating healthier. this is something i have always been interested in, always researched and always done half-way. emotional eating, time restraints and feeling overwhelmed by all the information and time/money involved in making a huge lifestyle change have been the culprits. but the more i have looked into it, the more i have been realising that it’s not as complicated as i think. i don’t have to do it perfect all the time for it to be beneficial and i can start small and work my way into eating completely differently. even if its over the course of a few years. yes, every little bit helps. one day at a time. all those cliches are true. we are taking small steps to eating better as a family and i honestly think it could be cheaper if we do it smartly. we will see.

the more i deliberately try to think and live in a way i enjoy, the more i realise that it is a process of small steps to a long-term goal. i used to get so frustrated that i could not have the finished product right now. right then. and i still do sometimes. but i think what i have learned most over this past year and a bit of blogging and deliberate living is that ‘the process’ is life. learning, growing, changing, adapting and becoming more whole and rounded is the process of life. i wonder what we would actually do if we had all that already…




  1. LOVE this πŸ™‚ I once read something around healthy eating that said something along the lines of ‘you are only one meal away from a healthy lifestyle’…meaning just because you ate like crap this morning doesn’t mean the whole day is shot and you have to “start tomorrow”.
    Good luck!

  2. oh and ps. you can come organise my house anytime you want! i was reading your about page and we share so many interests, but i am the messy, struggling to stay organised person. πŸ™‚
