So I have this oil obsession. I am always buying a new oil hoping it might help me overcome some obstacle or issue. This essential oil called Envision, this little 5ml bottle, I bought it a year, or maybe two years ago? I can’t remember. But anywhooooo I bought it to help me envision growth in my Young Living business and I wanted my husband to use it to help with some personal issues he had. 

Per my reference guide this is what this oil is good for:

Body System(s) Affected: The oils in this blend may help it be effective for dealing with various problems related to Emotional Balance.

Aromatic Influence: This blend was structured specifically to expel negative emotions, elevate the mind, balance, empower, and propel one forward to achieve their desired goals.
Well, when I first started using it I was applying it to my wrists and wasn’t seeing a big difference in the way I felt — I had been doing this for about a month and the bottle was about half gone. Then it sat on a shelf for the better part of a year or two, like I said, I can’t remember. 
So I got another bottle as a gift from my amazing upline, Jess, so I thought ok what the heck lets give this oil another try. This time I brought it everywhere with me and applied it to the back of my neck…. well this last week I had an oil class and I left it in the cup holder in my car. All week everytime I got in my car I couldn’t believe how amazing my car smelt. I had went shopping and thought maybe I walked to close to the perfume at a store or something, haha, silly right? So the other weird thing was that all week I’ve been so driven to not waste anytime watching tv or doing pointless stuff, I’ve been really driven to work on stuff that will help me, my business and my team grow. I haven’t had a signup in months and this last week I had TWO! I couldn’t really put my finger on why I was feeling this way but I knew something was different! 

Well this morning I went to use this oil and my hand was covered in it. The entire rest of the bottle had spilled in my cup holder because I didn’t tighten the lid enough. Ugh. Talk about wasting this oil. As I continued driving I just couldn’t stop thinking about it and then it dawned on me! It’s not a waste! It’s obviously giving me aromatic benefits! This is why I was so determined this last week! So while I thought this oil wasn’t working as well as I had heard from others, the problem was that I just wasn’t using it the way my body needed. Clearly the aromatic benefits work better for me! 
This last week has been so great. Now I will be diffusing this bad boy whenever I need that push… so like pretty much everyday. šŸ˜‰ 

Messy Beautiful Motherhood

For my first blog post I thought I’d give you a little peak into my life and motherhood.
So picture this, you have piles of laundry to wash and dishes to do, you need to clean up the clutter on all the counters and you should probably vacuum that dog hair off the couch, oh, and on top of that you have this little minion who you created who follows you around and messes up everything you’ve just cleaned. Well once in a blue moon they’re in their playroom babbling away so you run to the sink to maybe get a load of dishes in the dishwasher before said minion comes running into the kitchen to close the dishwasher on you. So 15 minutes later, the dishwasher is started but now instead of babbling you hear silence so this time you’re running to the playroom to see what all the silence is about because silence with a toddler is never, ever a good thing.

But ok maybe it’s not always a bad thing….. here’s my precious little gal who just loves to read. She somehow opened my closet and after dumping pictures everywhere she found the book she was looking for.

After she was finished reading she started rummaging through the pictures again. What happened next was so sweet, everytime she saw a picture of daddy she yelled out “DADA!” Except when she found a picture of us from Halloween dressed as vampires and daddy had blood dribbling from his mouth…. yeah that one she had the most perplexed look on her face. She threw it aside and continued rummaging.
All the mess. All the cleaning. All the chores. They’re all absolutely hands down worth it. Let them be little. Let them explore because they’re only young once and life is way more enjoyable when you stress less about the small stuff. One day you’ll have all the time in the world to clean and have a spotless house. So until then, embrace the lovely beautiful mess.
