Pack Your Own Lunch

Pack Your Own Lunch When you pack your own lunch, you get to choose what you’re going to feed your mind and body. We make conscious efforts when it comes to diet, exercise, activities, and books to read, so why is it that we tend to settle when it comes to our jobs? Of course not everyone settles, but statistics prove so many do. Are you settli...

School is Back. Stay Intact.

It's that time of year again when you’re probably saying to yourself “where did summer go?” All of a sudden there’s lots to think about and you are moving quickly to get all your ducks in a row. As you shop for school supplies, new outfits and shoes, don’t forget to stock up on your essential oils to avoid the sick-o blues! d...

Essentials of Summer

It's officially Summer! It is one of my favorite times of the year! How about you? There are always lots of fun-filled events & activities, such as barbeques, picnics, fishing, boating, vacations or staycations, home projects and much more! It’s all good & exciting! Just like last summer, I have listed some of my favorite summer 'essentials' ...

The Smiles of Smell

When we talk about essential oils we often don’t think of the emotional outcomes associated with the aroma. We hear a lot about the amazing support they provide our bodies, but sometimes the power of smell is overlooked. Yesterday, I went to a Holiday Bazaar and set up my doTERRA table. People would walk by, some not sure what essential oils ar...

Why Home-based Businesses are Becoming the Norm

More and more every day you hear about or see posts on social media of people, like me, launching or totally rocking some type of home-based business. Whether it is a product or service, a direct sales or network marketing company, it is happening all around us and in the next five years approximately 80 million people will be engaging in this entrepreneuri...

How to Stay Motivated When Your Heart is Crying

Yep, I am sure, like me, you have those times when you know you should be more proactive, but you procrastinate or feel frozen, because your heart is not feeling it. I know for me, in order to be excited and pumped up, I have to believe in what I am doing and be passionate about it. So what do you do when you find yourself in this type of situation, but unti...

I have purpose.

2018 is here. It’s a new chapter with 365 pages and as I write this blog, we have 363 left. Where did pages 1 and 2 go? Page 1 was a blast and an awesome start to the New Year. Page 2 not so much. I struggled, and my thoughts were not my friend. As I had these debilitating thoughts, I kept thinking of the books I am currently reading: “She Means Business”...

Five for Peace

If you had the chance to sit back and observe the world from an aerial view, you’d probably see the hustle and bustle this month enhanced by 500%. What do I mean by that? Well, if you consider your own world, you probably feel the pressure of adding tasks to your already busy situation and having thoughts of how am I going to get this all done? But, somewa...

I Wish You a Life You’re Crazy About

Are you crazy about life or does life make you crazy? My life seems crazy right now, but I am crazy about my life. Whether you work 1 job, 2 jobs, 3 jobs, for someone else, for yourself, are a stay at home mom or volunteer your time for the good of others, there is no denying that this time of year makes an already crazy busy life (even one your crazy about...

My Heart is Full of Gratitude & Happiness

Have you ever gone through something in life and wondered why you are going through it or feel majorly inconvenienced? Well, when I learned about Hurricane Irma’s possible arrival to the whole state of Florida, zoning in on the east coast, that is exactly how I felt. I thought in my mind, “Seriously? We just went through this crap last year wit...

Choose the hard that is going to make you happy!

I am half way through the book “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. I just learned a few days ago that she passed away on August 30, I believe at the age of 90. This is the first book I have read of hers and it is very thought provoking and I highly recommend it. I am sure this won’t be the last book I read of hers. One thing that is constant besides “...

Keep Moving. Stay Steady.

Sometimes I feel like all I do is work my ass off while others all around me are enjoying life and having fun. There are times I start to have a pity party like why not me? Why do some people seem to have it so easy? What did they do differently? What did I do wrong? Well, I am sure some married into it, some inherited it, and some just got lucky, but the t...

Stay the Course and Never Give Up

This blog may go in various directions and seem like a ramble, but I feel like I walk around with all these thoughts I want to get onto paper and often with life's busy schedule I don't have the chance. As I reflect on just the last year, I am amazed on how I have grown as a person and how I continue to grow. Life has its challenges and sometimes I feel I g...

Don't Wait. Happiness is Waiting for You!

We all hear the saying "life is Short." What does that mean to you? For me as I get older it becomes a bigger reality. It's like I can hear the clock ticking, each day seems shorter, the weeks fly by as do the months and I say to myself "where has the time gone?" It is pretty scary actually and then I realize I only have 8 years until I turn 60 and so on......

Have the Time of Your Life

One thing that never stops is time. There have been "times" when I wish I could slow it down (or speed it up) or freeze it, but you can't. No matter what, the clock is going to tick, tomorrow is going to come and go and even if we want to, we can't turn back the clock. That is not a bad thing though. It means when you are having a bad day, it will pass; or ...

There's always, always something to be thankful for.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week! Holy cow, how'd that happen? Wasn't I just handing out candy? I love this time of year! Yes, there is always something to be thankful for, but this time of year has a way of slowing me down a bit and reflecting on all that I do have. It also brings family and friends together and people tend to start clocking out ...

One Drop at a Time

It's Halloween! Happy Halloween! I love Halloween and always enjoy putting on a mask and giving out candy to all the kids in the neighborhood. However, I feel like I am not ready for Halloween this year. At the beginning of this month we had to deal with Hurricane Matthew....well, needless to say, that took 2 weeks out of our lives. Everything that is in...

Raindrops are Falling

It’s been raining a lot lately…on and off and the raindrops have made me think a lot about life. I watch as they hit the window, noticing how unique each one is from the other. Their visit seems to be short as they dissipate to another location or dissolve from the afternoon sun peeking out from behind the clouds. For whatever reason, they remind me of how...

What's Your Simple Something?

I woke up this morning to learn about it being National Wine Day, which then created a bunch of thoughts spiraling in my mind about what life would be like without certain joys, wine being one of them. Which got me to thinking about other things that would make life suck without.......which got me talking out loud to others at work about how it is National ...
