Hi readers! I made it back….only took me a year! One of my goals for this year is to try to pick back up with my blogging. My youngest child is now 2 and I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. She still follows me around like a shadow, but she’s becoming more independent and that’s freeing me up little by little.
To update you, life has been pretty much the same since we last spoke. This year I have made some deliberate decisions to effect a change in my life. I haven’t been unhappy with life by any means, but there were things that I wanted for myself that I wasn’t seeing. You always hear that every single person has 24 hours a day. I started looking around at what other people were able to accomplish (some with more kids than I have!) and I started thinking….me not having the things I want lies solely on my shoulders. The only person keeping me from exercising is me, and the only person keeping me from being able to read a book I want to read is me! So I simply made the decision. I cut down on the “relax in front of TV time” and decided to “relax in the bed with a good book”.
Another decision I made was to pursue a more natural lifestyle. Eat as organic as possible (cut out processed sugars, sweeteners (including Splenda), spend more time outside than in, find more natural ways to cure ailments my family encounters. I have kept no secrets that I firmly believe that God is our healer. I also feel like we have to be responsible with the bodies we’ve been given. I prefer to treat our bodies (to the extent possible) with natural products.
That being said, I decided to dive in head first with Essential Oils. If you’ve never heard of EO, they are 100% organic oils that you can apply topically, put in a diffuser and inhale, and put in your food/drinks and consume. The plants that these oils are distilled from are grown on soil that has never been chemically treated. The extent that Young Living goes to to ensure that their products are 100% organic is pretty incredible and makes it easy to trust them with the health of my family. You will probably see me plug EO many times in the future. I just can’t say enough good things about their products.
I hope that your year is off to a great start friends. I trust that your expectation for this year is through the roof and that you receive all that you desire in the months to come.
Talk to you soon!
