This article is not about what you may think it’s about. “Step Into Your Change” is about how each and every one of us could make simple, small changes in our everyday lifestyle that can have profound impacts on our lives, communities, nations and the world.
You see, the world as we know it exists not because of the handful of BIG things we do but because of all the small things we do every day. How we choose to think, what we eat-our food choices, the products we buy, the respect and value we place on one another to the rankings of our lifestyle choices and the environments we live in all drive the state of our being to define us whether we consider it to be good or bad.
A long time ago the marketing industry figured out what drives us and through repetition our pineal gland slowly became victim to truth persuasion of known lies. Our bodies strategically began to replace our minds and today it’s difficult to know if your opinion is really your opinion or even your thought because when things become uncomfortable, unknowingly our body takes over, because it does not like the feeling of change and overrides our mind to maintain the normal. Even if the normal feeds illness, sickness, misery or hopelessness it’s okay because it’s what our bodies are use to feeling.
I’m a Marketing graduate. In the process of getting my degree, I began to understand the power of data collection, word spinning and the art of saying just enough, long enough to get the mind hooked allowing the body to take over. Needless to say, I didn’t like what I was learning and envisioned for the future. So now here we are four decades later and I live in the time of my worst fear. Witnessing society being lead with our eyes wide open, just accepting thing as they are and asking few questions along the way. I am a business owner focusing on providing organic, natural and sustainable textiles, products and materials for the fashion and home decorating industry. I’ve spent a lifetime educating consumers about the toxic, hazardous and environmental consequences these industries impose on our health and world. I write, speak, host events and work one-on-one with clients to share my knowledge and expertise of the challenges that face us.
When you talk about something as simple as fashion, fabric, home furnishings and how toxic it is in our world today, you’d think people would do all they could to help facilitate change as healthy clean alternatives are readily available. Well, not so much so. The fashion industry has persuaded you that your worth is tied to how many cheap garments you can buy and discard with the least about of accountability. The home décor industry wants you to believe that nothing should last past five years, buy it cheap-we’ll even finance it because we know in five years, you’ll have to replace it whether you want to or not. We purposely made it to break down and designed it so you can't fix it. Trends rule so you should buy and throw out furniture at will with no thought of where it goes. By the way this also keeps you and your family in-flux where subconsciously your environment never feels secure or stable. Now that’s powerful.
