Why?!?!? Do you answer that question often? I do.
When this all started my why was Reed. I wanted to focus on him. I wanted to get him on track, but wanted nothing to do with the rest. I just wanted to use the products for us.
From there, I realized that if I could just get the oils that I needed for Reed paid for we’d be good. If I shared with just one or two people a month that would be perfect. And that happened. When Reed started school tough conversations started. Questions of “Why can’t you pick me up from car line?” “You never get to come to my class parties or field trips” would have me driving to work in tears. I knew that there was something more for me. So I poured into the few people I shared with.
This is when I realized it was bigger than me. This is when I realized I could maybe contribute a little more to our family. That I had the potential to pay for our family adventures. I could take Ross on a date. The vision was there.
After that happened, I realized that a family was being born. A family of people who were all like minded. A family that all wanted something different from what they were already doing. A family that wanted to try their way first. They and my family became my why. They want debt and time freedom. They want ballet lessons and soccer practice. I wanted to take Ross on a vacation and completely pay for it. We all longed for something more. I want to help them get it. I have learned that my value and worth is way more that I gave myself credit for. I want them to see there’s too.
You see, this past year my eyes have been widely opened. In April, I watched my Mom care for my Aunt day in and day out until she passed away from cancer. My Mom was able to never leave and was still getting a gratitude check. In July, I spent time in Uganda loving on people who have nothing yet everything.
As my why changes a little, it’s still basically the same. I just want to help people achieve and get the things they seek. I want to help people be able to care for their loved ones. I want to bring more soccer balls to Uganda and donate to foundations. I want to share this with everyone.
So, what and who is my why? You are!
