Embracing Purple is a project of love. I came to create this site as an extension of love for myself and the world around me. Embracing Purple promotes the notion of embracing our authentic selves. Through creativity, health and wellness, food, and mindful living, I find that love is at the root of happiness. And contentment and joy are the natural fruits of passionate living.
As passionate as I am about creating this blog, so too am I about maintaining and continuing this soulful journey. I want to be able to continue to nourish self (mind, body, spirit) and pour that out to share with others. In order for me to be able to devote a balanced energy to this project, I also need to be able to support myself through livelihood. In Buddhism, “right livelihood” is the concept of ethically making a living. Therefore, by striving to avoid creating harm and by focusing my energy on helping others, I hope that this blog supports that aspiration of “right livelihood.”
How Can You Help?
If you believe in this project and want to be able to offer your support, there are multiple ways you can do so. First, you can offer support by purchasing gifts for Embracing Purple from an Amazon Wish List. The list was made specifically to support me in my blogging endeavors, either directly or indirectly. Your support for me in this way will help me be able to continue to write and create. Additionally, it may help me be able to create a healthy, balanced environment or mind to facilitate creativity.
Another way you may want to provide support is through purchasing my handcrafted natural skin care products through my website Raw Ethos. I started Raw Ethos after I began this blog and had friends and family asking me to make them skin and body care products that I was posting on the blog. I love to make plant-based, pure, natural skin and body care. Every purchase made goes directly back to funding my blog and business.
Finally, you can support this blog by making purchases of the recommended items (affiliate links) or display ads in each post. A percentage of that sale will go back to support Embracing Purple and it costs no extra to you. Most if not all products I have used and/or recommend based on my trust in the brand or the distributor.
I thank you all for your support. Any support provided is a huge blessing to me and makes continuing to follow my passions and dreams possible. I am so incredibly grateful and thankful for you and all of my readers.
Any other ideas of how I can gain support or how you would like to provide support? I’m open to your questions, comments, and feedback! Thanks again!
