I'm back!! I took a long hiatus to get my life under control and heed my own advice. I am currently in the process of re-integrating into my workplace! I am so, so happy to be back. But was struggling with balance, so I have to let some things slide, including my story, housework, and a few other things. Anyways, back to my story!
We left off in March! I had been planning on taking my oldest son on a ski/snowboard trip to Collingwood. However, given the circumstances I was not able to. My son understood, and never appeared sad about not being able to go. He saw it as having more freedom and feeling independant. I realized that he needs that time to feel grown up and learn independance. I was not failing, I was letting him flourish.
I had actually been approached by my new friends about essential oils back in February. I was interested but didn't actually see how they could possibly benefit me at all. How could oil from a plant help me at all?? Obviously I had to look into this more.
I did some reading and read some blogs, but honestly, there was a lot of conflicting opinions and information. It was overwhelming to say the least. Eventually, I decided that I would invest in my health and pain control by purchasing some Deep Blue from doTERRA. There was a BOGO week at the end of February, where I was able to purchase this. I invested in a bottle of peppermint from doTERRA in April. And used that topically, as it has a cooling nature to it when applied to the skin as well. I may lose some of you here, and that's ok. Again, this is my journey and experience.
I began to see the benefits of a more natural solution to help control the pain. I would end up using up the peppermint within a month, and was reluctant to buy more, soley because of finances.
My journey has been mind-blowingly transformational, in all aspects of my life. I realize that I was living for the future and not for the present. Tomorrow is never guaranteed. And in life, there is no finish line. I live for the moment, the now. Of course I think about the future and what it could hold. But I can't base all my energy and thoughts into that. Until next time💜
