who am I?

wp-1473007937333.jpgHi! Nice to meet you.

I’m a forever young type of woman, having raised 7 children who are now all out and on their own, leaving me with a bit of time to do whatever I want to do. I am a Registered Nurse, but don’t go to the doctor much or think very highly of traditional medicine as we know it here in the Western world. I have always been interested in healthy living and holistic practices.

I’ve been married twice and am now living in a domestic partnership without the benefit of the government being involved. I’ve been called a hippie, and although I really don’t know what others mean by that, ok, I’ll take it. I’ve always bucked the system a bit, but now, as I get older, I’m finding that to be even more true!

I held some fairly dogmatic beliefs for about 20 years, but since  about 2009, I have become more progressive and open-minded, and am constantly exploring and updating those beliefs. Since March of 2014 I have meditated regularly twice daily, and this practice is now the core of my spirituality.

I’ve recently left my full-time job to spend time pursuing what is most important to me – connection with family, travel, practicing and teaching others about healthy living.

This is just a  little bit about me. Someday maybe I’ll write a book about my life.

Namaste.

    • Thank you very much Helen. I really appreciate it. However, after giving it a good deal of thought, I have decided that I am not going to participate. I see the process of accepting the award as time-consuming, and since I still work full time, I am just not willing to use the spare time I have to pick 7 blogs and answer the questions. I do think it is a beautiful thing though!

  1. Hi Saralynne7 – you meditate twice daily, how does this impact on your life? Have you noticed any differences which you are able to talk about? I meditate, but I don’t feel that much different to when I didn’t. But I continue to do so because there are supposed to be obvious health benefits.

    • I don’t know what is going on with WordPress, but I don’t seem to be getting comments through in my “notifications”. Thankfully I stumbled across your reply today (somehow!), and thanks for your comment. That would make an interesting blog post – go for it! Now that I have an idea of what it is I should be achieving from meditation, I will know what signs to look for. Thank you! 🙂

  2. Hello! I apologise for not writing sooner but I just wanted to say thanks for following me and my little blog (not that I *blog* much, its mostly pics….I’m kind of shy like that!) But I like your blog too and I’m hoping eventually to be able to share bits and bobs of life (as opposed to grumbling) :p

  3. HI, Sara! Thanks for following my blog and diet, exercise and living past 100. I am enjoying my visit to yours. It nice that you have integrated two meditation sessions into your daily ‘semi-retired’ life. Sounds like a neat trick. The closest I come to meditation is when I ride my bike. My mind feels totally free. Keep up the good work!
