Every day I find gratitude in all of the new green products that have become part of my life. Because of my household water filtration system, I am able to drink pure, delicious water straight from my faucet and have eliminated the need for water bottles. It’s easy to peruse a multitude of farmers’ markets for fresh, local fare or better yet, receive a fresh box of organic produce delivered right to the door eliminating driving time and food going to waste.
We also have a large barter organization, which allows reserves of some of that green money we all work so hard for in exchange for a wide variety of products and services. We are all becoming much more resourceful lately, more so out of necessity than anything else.
Our environment and our minds have reached their capacity with the rapid overflow of technology and products. With this in mind, it’s worth our while to pay particular attention to all the green products coming at us—they are changing the way we live.
I often reflect on how many people and businesses we have helped grow through the magazine. Natural Awakenings has helped people find their passion and set out to achieve their goals by connecting our local providers to each other and ultimately strengthening the local economy.
Many of us have reinvented ourselves due to a struggling economy, or to fulfill an uncontrollable urge to bring a product or service to others in need. One thing I firmly believe is that we are never too old and it is never too late to make a change. I was initially attracted to Natural Awakenings magazine because I saw it as a powerful force that was helping to create the change I wanted to see in the world. The endless hours we spend bringing this magazine to you each month is rewarded by the change Natural Awakenings magazines are bringing to Indianapolis and 90 other communities across the nation.
This seems to be a good time for me to clarify my intentions of selling my Indianapolis magazine.
I am thrilled that my original aim of bringing Natural Awakenings to Indy has come to fruition with the support of all our readers and advertisers. I am ready to wholeheartedly step into a larger vision to spread the word of healthy living. Putting my magazine up for sale is one way of letting the universe know that I am ready for this exciting new shift. I look forward to all of the different opportunities that it brings my way. It is inspiring to attract and encourage new ideas, services, people and products.
Think fresh and trust you will attract “green”. It’s just the way it works.
Smiles and salutations to all of us entrepreneurs,
