Welcome to Holistic Beauté Loop or HBL.
Some may question the name, so a bit of an explanation should do to suffice some people.
Holistic is for holistic, natural and alternative health.
Beauté is for beauty in French. I have always thought it is just a beautiful way to spell it. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but beauty is all around us and in us. This website will encompass everything that has to do with beauty & being beautiful from the inside out.
Loop and this is the most important. Loop because beauty comes from within and it is an inside out job on our part. What we do from the inside out matters, and how we treat our bodies from inside out matters, and that is a 360 degree effect on our whole being 24/7. It never ends in taking caring of ourselves, we should want to be the best versions of ourselves, and that does mean consistently working on improving ourselves. Believe it or not, when we take better care of ourselves and improve our life daily, we then can take better care of the people around us.
There’s a quote I really like by Eleanor Roosevelt (she has several I like) and it’s this: “Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.” This quote leads me to say this: Life is very much a live and learn process & we learn by doing and by examples of other people. We can all learn something from someone. It does not matter our age, gender, or any other demographics. We just have to be willing to be open to change, to learning, and growing into a better person each and every day. There are people in this world who are good and bad, so choose your examples wisely and be an example to others. We should be living to inspire others. It truly is the best way to live.
So why start a website and call it this? What is the purpose? I have stated some of that already. I have blogged before and gave it up for different, very personal reasons. I wanted a website where I could combine not just my poetry, prayers, recipes, & writing in general, but where I could also write about natural and holistic health. If you see posts that I have done on my previous blog sites, then you may see them here in a different way. I believe everything we do from the inside out from our thoughts, to what we say, to what we do, to what we consume and how we treat our bodies matters more than we can possibly imagine. Some of us don’t see that until we are older and then we look back at our lives, and say, “What the hell happened?” We should want to live in a way that betters and enriches our daily life.
As a woman who is entering into my 50s, I have experienced life lessons in a way where it has molded & shaped me with everything I am today. I am very blessed and grateful for those life lessons, good and bad. Granted, there are always things to learn. But I like to think that we can all learn from each other and I want to give you, the readers, a glimpse into my life and what I have had to deal with in different aspects of life. It may help you, protect you, guide you, or just give you some knowledge you may not have before coming on to this site. We will see where it goes as this website and as life progresses.
