To Find Something Natural, and To Find the Light

 

      Hi friends. It may be a dark day for a lot of people, myself included, but if there's one thing I've learned, not just from the last year or so, but from life in general, it's that life goes on. I've said this before, but a sentiment that's gotten me this far in life is that sometimes you have to let things go. I'm not saying I'm letting go of the hope of having a female president one day, or the hope that our country is better than what we all witnessed this morning, because I will always try to believe in those things. I'll always be optimistic and find the light, that's just my way; but regardless of how I feel about everything that has happened or will happen, I look at my daughter and I can't help but remember that I have other things to do, to worry about. I, like many parents, am worried about what this means for her future, but I'm honestly still more concerned about keeping her happy and safe right now, in the moment, and just being with her. I still have to be strong for her, and show her by my own example that people are good and kind, that as individuals we lead our own lives and that leads to differences. There's no other way around it, and those differences will always exist. So today, I'm still going to share my favorite natural product of the month, because it is still relevant to me. What has happened to our country hasn't changed how I feel about my toothbrush, or sharing how I feel about my toothbrush with you all, and most definitely how I feel about continuing to share anything I want in this space. If you don't want to read about my awesome wooden and eco-friendly toothbrush today, that's ok and I will always understand. I'm doing this, and have/always will do this, for myself, but also for Bailey, and for anyone who cares. We all have to find a way to get through this, and by the laws of nature, we will. My life has not and will not ever stop for one man, and in the spirit of that, let's get to today's subject matter: an all natural, eco-friendly, and charitable toothbrush.

     This toothbrush has a lot of great attributes, but my favorite one is it's creators mission. For every toothbrush sold, Smile Squared donates one to a child in need. You would think having access to a toothbrush is a basic human right, but sadly, in some places, it's not.

     My next favorite thing about these brushes, is that they are eco-friendly. The brushes are made of compostable and recyclable bamboo, which is always a plus in my book.

     I plan to get one of these for Bailey, and continue using these. I figure, if it's an everyday essential, like a toothbrush, why not make it as good for the environment and the world as possible? That, and the wooden style is much prettier than a crazy colored plastic one.

     That's all for today, folks. Thanks for reading, and try to have a fun day, or as much fun as one could have on a day like today. See you tomorrow!
