My goal is “BE” by example! Align my words with my actions, and express the powerful strength of living gratitude in this now!

I’ve been educating (myself) since I can remember, providing common sense wisdom with years of scientific study and visionary solution based trends to family and friends. Information, Natural Living, Fitness, Spirituality,  and All things Creative  is what I love! Sharing empowers, as it is said by Indigenous nations, “I am Because We Are.”

The Fit+Organic+Natural+Loving Lifestyle

The Path to NaturalSelf by RiaSweetrawFor over 20+years, I’ve been into the “Natural,” “Organic,”  “Loving” lifestyle. Choosing organic foods in high school in Georgetown, Washington DC and boycotting my greasy burgers in college in Virginia for fresh veggies and salads to making my twins green drinks and fresh baby food before they could walk in New York City! Way before “Vegan” was en vogue and living a “Green” lifestyle was a million dollar industry. I chose what I felt was “right” for me and taught those values and principals to my children, friends and family.

To this day, I honor “Natural, Organic” living and have incorporated fitness as part of my humble spiritual experience as I evolve and expand. I truly  believe with fortitude, some meditation, lots of laughter and support we can create the lifestyle we truly want to live! If I can help, share, insight, bring understanding and transformation to others along the way I’m doing my job and living my purpose for being here on this planet we call home.

What’s New for 2016

Crossfit Summer 2013

CrossFit. Ria Sweetraw Takharu. 2013-2014

In my former life, I was a Graphic Designer with over 15 years of corporate and non profit experience in the (DMV) Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland area. As of Summer 2015, I will be in Georgia while my daughter is completing her high school – college dual enrollment program.
I will be back in the classroom  in the Spring-Summer of 2016.  In the meantime, you can find me planting organic gardens, reading spoken word, singing,  writing poetry, dancing, completing ebooks and poetry books, playing with my dogs, enjoying nature, blogging and sharing my passion of the Fit Natural Organic Loving Lifestyle with community and friends!

 

 

 


What’s up in 2018? 

I entered college in 2017, starting with a major in Communications minors in Creative Writing and International Business. Under deeper introspection, I decided to switch my major to Anthropology with concentration in Environmental Sustainability with minors in Creative Writing and Communication.  After my first poetry course, I was pleased to be published by Two Cities Review (April (2018) for one of my poems my professor recommended from my collection of poetry. Currently, I’m focused on my college course work, health certifications (listed above) including dance, and the arts (expression)!  I also look forward to diving into these studies with a hands on approach gaining feedback and partnerships with members of community and adding travel articles to the NSG blog.  Can’t wait to share! xo With Love, Abundance and Freedom,
