Our first mile is going to be the most challenging for many, require the most changes, and take the largest amount of effort and concentration. This is a VERY steep part of the trail so we are going to take small steps and rest often.
This part of the hike cannot be completed quickly, one can’t run on this part of the trail, there is no speed walking; slow and steady is the pace, one step at a time, one foot in front of the other. There will be trip hazards, falls, tumbles, don’t worry, just get up and keep going. Allow yourself rest stops, wandering room, and escape routes. Together we WILL get to the top. 🙂 Grab a bottled water, lace up those shoes and let’s get going.
New to the “Crunchy” life? New to real foods? New to alternative medicine? New to herbal remedies? Don’t know where to begin? I want to help you!
Today I will begin a series, that with much prayer and a few late nights, I might be able to keep up with. Ya’ll pray too if you don’t mind!
This series will be a hike down a long but adventurous trail; “The Crunchy Trail” we will explore what it means to be “Crunchy” and small simple steps you can take to get your family headed down a more natural and healthy path.
