Have you ever found yourself thinking "what the heck happened and how did i get here?"
That's how i felt about a year and a half ago, as I battled a pretty terrible sleeping disorder, managed business stress to the max, and watched my dad start and lose his fight with brain cancer.
I know it's been a while since you've heard from me, so I want to explain a little about what I've been doing for the past year and a half, with SimpleCare and otherwise.
I was struggling with too much, and found myself in a place where I had no freedom, a 24/7 schedule, no time for hobbies, was out of shape, and had missed out on precious time with family.
I had no choice but to slow things down. I decided to take as much of a break as possible from many of my stressors, including social media, (emails), and hard core running of this business. I had to escape the overwhelm that was bringing me down.
So where did i go all this time? To a much better place, for mutual benefit.
It's been a long progression, and I have made big steps towards my own self improvement and overall well-being. I am more grounded and content. I have more focus on wellness, happiness and self care. I've spent more time outdoors. I've traveled. I've relearned how to relax and have fun.
Honestly, I've been getting to the heart of what simple care really means. I realized in that time that in order to run my business well, i needed to be well myself.
Unfortunately a lot of things in that time have also slipped through the cracks, and I apologize for the areas in which we have lacked over the past year.
I put the business before myself for a long time, at the expense of relationships, experiences, and the business itself. I have now rebuilt this business to better suit a realistic life.
I've been able to work on new formulations with clarity, and am now so proud of the lineup of products we've got. These are built-for-purpose, no BS products that are easy to use and made with the best clean ingredients I can source.
When I started this business over 5 years ago, I wanted to create products inspired by what you'd make in your own kitchen. Where you use real food for real nourishment, and now I'm doing that more than ever.
I am really excited to share these new products with you!
I've worked really hard to bring you some new and interesting things made with a lot of our old favorite ingredients, and a good mix of new things. They're pretty great!
