Journal Entry No. 6

Book intelligent womanI’ve never much cared for this question. I mean, if one was extremely intelligent and less attractive, to what extreme is this “less attractive” look? Who says they’re less attractive? By societies standards? Also, if one really wanted to be up to societies standards of attractiveness, there’s also plastic surgery. Not that I’m saying one should get plastic surgery just because they’re less attractive, but it’s always an option. See, it’s a catch 22. If I say one over the other, there’s always something to comment about the way I perceive it. Does it make one a more shallow person if one says they’d rather be extremely attractive over being intelligent? What’s not to say that a person couldn’t overcome their being less intelligent? Who’s saying they’re less intelligent? Tests? Ba humbug to standardized testing!

I never felt I was very intelligent growing up due to the fact I struggled understanding math. Then, in a remedial college math class, it clicked. Finally, I understood math! After all those years struggling to understand it, I understood it! It felt so good.

Could not a less intelligent person somehow learn in a way to become more intelligent? Even those that have an actual disability in learning many times has other qualities about them that they’re able to let shine.

If one is extremely attractive, one could excel in acting or modeling and make it in life. As for being extremely intelligent, one could succeed in life by being a scientist, mathematician, doctor, or researcher, for example.

Welcome!

I’m so happy to be here by letting you learn a little about me, my path to healthy eating, healthy lifestyle and of course, to get to know you! I love the online community feel that we are able to have now a days. It’s such a wonderful way to connect and share little bits of our lives.

On this blog I’ll be writing about food, posting recipes, exercise, bits of my daily life, and musings. I also am hoping to start traveling in an RV with my husband, three daughters, dog, and cat. So, I’ll be sharing about this soon! Please bear with me as I am new to blogging and website workings!

I grew up with a large family and I was the oldest daughter. I have always loved babies, food, the outdoors, traveling, and learning. My mother was a hippie at heart and I grew up eating lots of vegetables, smoothies, tofu, and sprouts. She used essential oils before they became popular, homeopathic medicine, and other healing herbs. I learned a lot from her and continue to learn to this day. I fell off the healthy band wagon for awhile when I went off on my own, but soon found my way back. I feel so much better eating clean and exercising than when I’m not.

I was a massage therapist for twelve years and loved helping people feel better. From there  I decided to become a labor doula and then I became a home birth midwife and RN. Currently, I am staying at home with my three precious daughters and loving the little things in life, taking it day by day. I now have time to do some creative activities like blogging and cooking.
