Hello!! Thank you for stopping by my page!! I hope that you will find the information on my site useful, as I strive to bring you hacks to help make your health and daily life easier. There is so much information available, and my goal is to condense it so that you can apply it into your life with a better understanding, while maintaining your health and budget, and doing it efficiently.
My name is Kelly, and I have never been one to do things like everyone else, often being called “weird” by my friends — a term I wholeheartedly embrace as a good thing 😊). I believe my unique ways of thinking gives me a different strength and perspective on the topics we face in daily life.
One of my greatest strengths (and also fun to me) is problem-solving, a trait I learned from both my “we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it” Momma, Trudy, and electrical-engineer Dad, Jerry — I often call my hacks “Jerry-rigging”. I will not stop until I find solutions that work well for myself and my friends and help us concentrate on the issues in life that really matter.
Unfortunately, one of my greatest trials has been my own health. For over half my life, I have struggled with hormonal imbalances and extreme tiredness that began as a teenager, and continue to be a struggle for me. I am often uncovering new methods towards detoxifying my home and lifestyle and want to share those ways with you.
My inspiration for creating this blog is that have always expressed myself so much better in writing, and (I hope it doesn’t seem blasphemous), but I felt convicted by God to begin the blog and share my discoveries and research, and condense it so that you spend time just getting the basic, burning questions answered and then carry on with your day.
Why “Just Start”?
For many years, I have sat on beginning this blog, frankly out of fear, lack of knowledge, a feeling of overwhelm, and the pursuit of perfection. (The last was never going to happen.)
This is why I titled the blog “Just Start” with Kelly, because whatever it is I write about, I want you to have the courage, knowledge, and simplicity that I have discovered. And the motivation that what you do doesn’t have to be perfect, as it is a process that will constantly be refined as you grow. I love this quote, as it says it very well:
You don’t have to be GREAT to START, but you have to START to be GREAT. -Zig Ziglar
Now, not everything is simple as you delve deeper, but I want to encourage you to at least begin to use these methods I share with you in simple ways. As you become familiar with the concepts that align with your goals, you can continue to study deeper, and maybe I can point you on how to go deeper in your own self-study.
I want to hear from you! If you have questions on any topics I write about, I would love for you to post a comment, as I will check those often. If there’s something similar, let me know and I can do some research and get back to you!
If you have direct concerns or questions, you can always email me at: Kelly at JustStartWithKelly.com.
