Learning to Live — Again!

Quick, name three things you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t yet gotten to! Renting a villa in Tuscany for the summer, driving the Almafi coast with my husband and sitting in with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have been long time goals I’ve yet to reach and — especially that last one — may remain forever outside my ability to achieve.

While dreaming and planning are part of what makes life so much fun, I have to say that so much of what I had thought was massively important for me to accomplish in life faded to insignificance once cancer entered my world.

Many of us don’t really think about what we really want to do with the time we’re given on this earth.

    I have been involved with women’s issues for many years. As an advocate of healthier lifestyles, my passion has been focused for the past 4 years, with enlightening women consumers about hidden dangers of certain products. The United States has been very vocal about safety in our children’s toy products,our pet food, and certain substandard building products, but what about toxins in beauty and personal care products??? Up to 60% of ingredients in those high-end cosmetics and skin care/personal care items, are absorbed through the skin to our organs,tissues, and bloodstream. Thanks to consumer protection agencies, we are more aware of what ingredients to avoid. This consumer proactive approach to beauty, is contributing to making our beauty regimens a little bit healthier. We continue to upgrade and monitor ingredients present in many consumer products. For the past 31/2 years,I have been involved with research and development of all natural cosmetics and am preparing a specialty launch in January,2010, spotlighting the need for all natural ingredients with cancer therapy patients, as well as, people concerned with wellness/beauty lifestyle changes. As creator of Simply Bella Cosmetics, we are committed to maintaining wellness, even in the midst of, health issues. Visit us at http://www.simplybellaonline.com for latest in beauty/wellness issues.
