New year - New you... same words, different story

Ah yes, the wonderful new year has arrived! With it, comes all the resolutions, the hopes, the dreams, the goal setting and all the ambition to change who we are or how we look, or whatever it is we may not be happy with.

I am not knocking any of the above in any way really; I just think if we want to make changes in our life no matter how big or small, we can do that at ANY time of the year. We do not need to wait until the calendar tell's us it's a new year and now is the best time to do these things. After all, statiscally speaking not many of us will actually keep these new year resolutions we set for ourselves. I was wondering why that is was, and came up with a few ideas of my own.
First, we set goals that are unattainable - now here is what I think of that. Last year I would have said it's possible. But I have grown a lot since Jan. 1, 2016 to Jan 1, 2017 and I am very happy for that. Let me say that a goal may seem unattainable, or huge to reach; but it doesn't mean it can't be reached. Baby steps are called that for a good reason, and sometimes baby steps don't feel like much at the time. After all, while we all celebrate baby's first steps we don't celebrate their 100th, or 1000th even though that brings them so much closer to running around like that little toddler does. We also don't tell them when they fall down that walking is not meant for them, and they should give up. Yet we tell ourselves that all the time. We fall down and we feel our goal was too big. Hogwash!
Second, we work on our goals well for about a week solid, maybe even two. And then we have one bad day and we feel like we can't start again. Why bother? We will just return to this cycle again afterall? Again, last year I would have agreed and said yeah sounds about right. This year, after a lot of reading, self searching, and growing, I am once again calling Hogwash! So what? You fell off the wagon, you had one bad day? Does that mean you can't get back on that bike and learn to ride it? Will you never know the joy of riding a two wheel bike because you had one crash? You won't reach your goal or resolution because of one bad day? Well, that is your choice; but it is also your choice to rise above the negativity and grow beyond that. See that you can get back up and grow and reach your dreams. Baby steps my dear, baby steps.

So, this year, I have large goals myself. I am so excited to announce that I stay home with my family and am able to run a business while my kiddos are at school. This allows me more time to be present with them while they are home in the evenings, available to go to after school programs without leaving my job early. My goals for the year seem pretty incredible and I know that with baby steps and determination, I will reach my goals. The best thing about what I do is that I love it! That makes it even more exciting and rewarding. I get to teach people how to incorporate doTerra essential oils into their home life. I get to show them resources that help them to learn about the healing power these oils have. They are not new to the scene either, think back to the past and really do your research. How long has the pharmaceutical companies been in business? What do you think was used prior to these big business companies coming to the scene?
I know it can seem daunting, scary, or expensive to add essential oils to your life. Or where does one even beging, but I am looking forward to a year where I get to teach you all how to add them into your day seemlessly, and share incredible specials with you when I can. Follow my FB account here for any upcoming specials and online classes, and check out my website here if you are already knowledgeable about oils or want to contact me. :)

I look forward to meeting those of you I have not yet who want to know more about oils, and those of you I do know, now know that I would love to help you reach a healthier, chemical free, more natural you if you would like; and you know where to reach me ;)

Here are a few ways I incorporated oils into our month of December:
diffuser bracelet

peppermint cake

Chocolate's with different oils

Happy New Year!!
