6 years ago, life was pretty darn stressful. I was married and struggling with so many emotions; dealing with health issues in the family; and so much stress from my job. That stress built, exploded, and then changed my life in so many ways.
Ever since then I’ve been an open book and not afraid to be vulnerable. In fact, I’ve written two books about the many experiences I’ve had (Signs from God; Break Down Your Walls) that are available on Amazon. Search them, and my name, and they will show up. My dream in life is to help as many people as I can deal with their stress.
After my heart attack in 2016, that’s where my life started to change big time. I learned how to deal with my stress. It was during my recovery period when I was introduced to Young Living essential oils and started diffusing Stress Away and rolling on Peace and Calming. I literally could feel the stress melting off my shoulders. But, I must say, with everything I had been through, that wasn’t enough. I needed to talk things out with a therapist, and I found someone who truly got me. She helped me grow stronger by coming to terms with who I am and what I needed in my life. I share alot of that in my second book, Break Down Your Walls.
As those sessions progressed, I gravitated to all of the emotional oils that Young Living had to offer and O.M.G. were they helping me to release the negative feelings, stay grounded to my God, feel gratitude for what I did have, to be hopeful for my future, and have the courage and confidence to move forward knowing that I am enough.
As the years progressed, I built so many strong life-lasting friendships that have been there for me through all of the changes that took place. Those friendships helped me cope with the struggles I faced during all the moves, separation, divorce, and all the tears. As I began standing on my own and planning for single life, I found my future had unlimited possibilities. I was amazed at finding new love and starting a whole other life. Then moving to Georgia and leaving my family behind, especially after Brian’s terrible accident. Change and separation is hard, and again I had my essential oils and everything I had learned to help get me through.
Today, I am living my best life ever! I’m living in Georgia, right around the corner from my mother – literally a five minute walk! Our new home is everything I had ever wanted in a home, and I get to work remote. My office is across the hall from the man of my dreams and his own office, where he gets to work remote. God had a plan and it’s all coming together. The stress in my life is at a minimum now. My children are all doing well and I’m looking forward to a trip back home the end of the month! I’m now building a new community of Oily Believers here in Georgia and building even more friendships that I know will continue to blossom and grow over the years to come.
When I look back at everything I have learned about toxic living and how much I have grown and improved my health and well-being, it amazes me. Young Living has taken me to Conventions, to their Lavender Farm in Utah, to weekend retreats, workshops, happy hours, make-n-takes, and many team building events and personal growth opportunities. I’ve learned to recognize my triggers, calm my stress, and support every system in my body with these precious bottles of oils that God gave us! Plus, I’ve been able to build a business, my own business! I’ve been able to build a bank account that allows me to pay for all of my oils and products through the business and so much more. I can’t say I’ve quickly grown my business, because life does get in the way sometimes and I’ve had some challenging years.
The past year has been rough for many people and businesses as a result of the distance forced upon us. Change can be hard, and as we begin to move forward again, I am so excited over the changes that Young Living is making. Their new website and leadership are proving to be just what we all needed and I feel like it is all coming together at just the perfect time and I’m so excited to see where this next year takes us.
As the momentum is picking back up and Fall is upon us. It’s like the perfect storm, and now more than ever, we need to gear up and get ready to arm ourselves and our wellness. So, if you are interested in hearing more about this journey I’ve been on; or the oils I’ve been using to help manage my stress and wellness over the years; or shoot, want some guidance in building your own wellness business, I’m here for you! I’m not going anywhere. I love this business and the opportunity it has provided me with and I can’t wait to see just how far it takes me into early retirement with residual income I can count on for the rest of my life and my children’s lives! After all, that’s what us parents want – to always provide a future for our children!
Thought you might like to take a stroll down memory lane with me….and, sorry, but because I spoke about the business I have to share the income disclosure…. But, it’s definitely worth taking a look at it! I’m sure glad I did. Sharing is easy when you love the product!
