While I have two other blogs: http://destanyfenton.blogspot.com/, for my paintings, and http://thecreativemother.blogspot.com/, for my crafts and recipes, I have decided to create a blog of a more personal nature. Mainly I will use this blog to host my input for many of the wonderful blog carnivals I enjoy reading on natural parenting and holistic living.
I have been reading many of these posts for some months and I find them highly educational. It is not my intention to educate anyone, but to connect and let other people who hold similar beliefs know a bit about who I am.
So who am I? I am many facets, many faces, many moods, many mothers, many looks, many hobbies, many wives, many daughters, many ideas. I am all of them, they are all of me. I believe in looking at a broad scope and keeping an open mind. I believe a healthy body is imperative for a healthy mind and vice versa. I believe in finding peace wherever I can find it and detaching from arbitrarily stressful situations. I believe in raising children consciously and with ALL of me. I believe in minimalistic living. I believe that when you take more than you need, you are taking it from someone who needs it. I believe in looking at the world entirely and not simply focusing on my small corner of it. I believe in self-education, dedication and hard work. All of that is still only part of me. My children make up a great deal of who I am, and as I post to this blog, eventually those who read it can slowly gain a sense of all of my many, small, silly, serious, meaningful, spiritual, strange, enormous, ditsy, and not-so-flattering pieces that make up ALL of me.
