RenaissanceWoman2010 is the “Green Living” Contributor on Squidoo

rainbow_house_3Today we’re pleased to introduce you to RenaissanceWoman2010. She’s our “Green Living” Contributor.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Green living is ultimately an act of love. We live in a way that ensures others we care about can enjoy the good life we are trying to create for ourselves.

I consider the green living niche to reside at the intersection of thriving individuals and a thriving planet. Green living is about balance, sustainability, harmonious relationships, thoughtful stewardship, and being unselfish. It is about leaving an evergreen legacy.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
What I have come to think of as my “inner green” flourished when I was a child. My days were filled with sunshine, lying in fields of clover, watching my grandmother’s garden grow (while eating her nutritious homegrown food), and being deeply immersed in the circle of life on my aunt and uncle’s “Old MacDonald” style of farm (the best kind of environment for a child).

I knew then that I desperately wanted and needed to live green. My most fervent dream was to live on a farm… to live essentially… to grow greener day by day. It wasn’t until I moved off the grid seven years ago that this dream began to come to fruition.

Who had the most influence in your life?
Green living was something my grandparents and farming relatives did naturally. They didn’t have a name for it. My family just knew intuitively how to make healthy choices and live sustainably.

I was taught by my parents not to be wasteful. I’ll always be thankful for these early lessons about making a good life by living essentially. They taught me that enough is enough. This is my heritage of green. It is a beautiful living legacy that I wish to pass along to others.

      As I like to say, Susan: “Green is the new gold.” Living well is the true wealth.

        Absolutely can’t argue with that!

    I have never really considered it before, but my grandparents were also naturally green. I am sure they were not only raised to be frugal, but since they lived during the depression and through both world wars, I suspect the quickly learned to be even less wasteful. You are the perfect Green Living Contributor, my friend!

      Your family sounds very much like mine. They never forgot the Great Depression or the times of war shortages. To get the most out of everything was a highly esteemed virtue.

    Grandparents were green because they had to be, there was no extra money for frivolous living…

    I have so much respect and admiration for you, Diana, to be walking the talk, rather than just spouting off about green living, as many do. You’ve not only learned the difference between want and need, you are well on the road to becoming one with Mother Nature. I’ve much to learn from you in hopes of just being able to apply a bit more a little at a time to my everyday living.

    One with nature, that’s my style of living. No central heating, no dish washer, no fancy electric equipments in the kitchen and I love all seasons.
