Purpose of Be Naturally Well:
Like so many projects, the purpose of Be Naturally Well changed (evolved) after it got started. The original purpose of Be Naturally well was just to share what I learned on my journey to wellness. In the early stages, though, it became clear that there were many people, both men and women, who were making this same journey. For the most part, there are a lot of people blogging about their return to fitness who would love to have a place to share with others who are on the same path. Many people would love to have a place where they could go and ask questions from someone who has either had the same experience, or teaches others about that topic professionally. People are reaching out for empathy, support and concrete advice. I realized I wanted that kind of place as well, and that I had the resources and knowledge to make it happen.
Be Naturally Well Mission Statement:
To provide a safe place of support, comfort and empathy, and to allow a forum for discussion on the topics that interest people as they seek wellness for themselves.
Be Naturally Well Author:
I am a registered nurse with a life long mission of helping others. "Nursing was not just a job for me, it was a calling. It was something I was meant to do as I fulfilled my lifelong purpose of adding value to the lives of others, and doing my part to make the world a better place for all of us."
I am a dreamer, a researcher, a helper and a results oriented do-er.
I live in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada with my husband and 4 cats. I have 2 adult children of whom I am quite proud. :-D I am not sure if they grew up well because of me, or despite me, but they are awesome people, out in the world doing their own thang.
A Note About Products:
As you browse the site you will see different products represented along with links where you can purchase those products should you wish. All of the products are personally approved by Shelley before they are put on the site. Some of the products come from Multi-Level Marketing (mlm) companies, and as such there is an opportunity for anyone to start a home business promoting the products themselves, and ordering at wholesale. If you wish to order as a customer that's fine. If you wish to join as a "distributor" JUST to get your products at wholesale, that's fine. If you wish to start a business AND get the products at wholesale that's fine. Our purpose is to ADD VALUE to your life. Whichever option serves you is the one I am most happy with.
Some of the products mentioned are affiliate type products that someone earns a commission for promoting, and some of the products are simply products we endorse because we like them. Whether we earn a commission from the products, or someone else does, ALL of the products are here because Shelley personally approved them, has done a serious investigation into the quality of the products and the ethics of the company, and they pass scrutiny.
In the case of a product being an independent advertisement, it will be clearly marked. Independent advertisements (Google ads for example) are chosen by the company who owns the advertisements, and are therefore out of our control. We will make every effort to clearly mark independent ads as such.
What we believe:
At Be Naturally Well it is our belief that we are all connected through each other, through the air we breath, the water we drink, the planet we live on. When you hurt yourself you hurt all of us.when you honor yourself, you honor each one of us. We will always strive to honor ourselves, to honor the planet and to honor you.
You are a special person. It doesn't matter what your body looks like, it doesn't matter how your voice sounds or whether you can dance, or write, or sing. You are perfectly imperfect, and meant to be experiencing this life exactly the way you are experiencing it. You are a part of the miracle that is everyday. Stop for a moment and appreciate the sky, the grass, the food you eat, the way your fingers move. Feel a part of this wonderful miracle, and care for yourself. You deserve to be cared for with nourishing food, comforting love and understanding. You are a part of the miracle. As you listen to the words of this song and look at the pictures you will get a sense of our reason for being here. (If you think this is a little flaky you could be right…. but if you really think about it… I mean really… do you see?)
