My cute little family

Wake up.  Make a choice.   CHOOSE. THE. JOY.
I don't wake up out of bed with a smile on my face most days, I'm just not that type of person. I have to give myself a pep talk every day, to Choose the Joy in each thing that I do.  I struggle.  I struggle a lot, with a lot of things.  Even though I really do have so many things that I am grateful for in my life, I actually have to stop, think about them and give my gratitude.  Joy and happiness does not naturally overflow out of me, instead, I search for it.
I have to make a conscious effort to choose.  I Choose the Joy.  I Choose the Joy in making my bed each morning.  I Choose the Joy in opening my oils to keep myself happy and healthy.  First tasks of the day complete.  I Choose the Joy in getting dressed and ready for the day.  I turn off all thoughts of who I might run into and what I need to look like.  Instead, I Choose the Joy in my appearance and force out a smile, then the second smile comes a bit easier.  I literally do this with each thing I do, all day long, then I go to sleep and wake up the next day, and need to make a choice again. 

I know I am not the only one like this.  I can't be.  I'm slowly raising my hand to say that this is how I am and how I was built.
It's ok to raise your hand with me.  I know I'm not the only one who struggles and needs to Choose the Joy in each day. 
Have you ever heard the phrase, "How do you do it?"  Well, to be honest, it is a choice and I just do it.  My oldest child is a cancer survivor.  She was diagnosed at 6yrs old and just after turning 9yrs old, she had her final surgery to remove all parts from her delicate little body so she can continue on with a cancer free life.  As life makes it's turns, in November 2017, she was rediagnosed and June 7th, 2018 had a Bone Marrow Transplant.   My second child is 2 years younger and has the largest heart.  He has sat beside her all day, almost every day, experiencing this journey with her, as a little brother holding her hand.  This is my life; my husband, my kids, my mind.  So... when I get asked, "How do you do it? You work from home with your Young Living business, volunteer and fund-raise, and have gone through everything with your child and her diagnosis... I don't know how you do it."  I respond simply by saying that I have to.  I have to do it.  
I have to Choose the Joy in each day.
I don't have time to focus on anything but that, or nothing would get done.  I will tell you this... if I can do this, so can you Find Joy in one thing, then the next, then the next.  

My one escape and is my Young Living business.  I feel like everything that Young Living produces and represents was put on this planet just for me!  
Products for a purpose not profit.  Chemical free cleaners, soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, deodorant, makeup, face care, lotions, etc.  Grade A Essential Oils that work with our cells to give us health.  Nutritional drinks and supplements made of the best quality herbs and oils.  No more guessing in the pharmacy aisle of what is a good vitamin.  Young Living provides me with education and PROOF of what they say they do.  
I have personally been to some of the Young Living farms, because, ya know, they do everything themselves by hand, (none of this buying 3rd party oils rubbish) and I have planted the seedlings of sandalwood trees and lavender.  I have been in the distilleries and watched the Melissa plant being steamed at low temperatures and seen the water and oil separate.  I have seen the large stainless steel drums filled with Balsam Fir trees ready to be distilled.  I have stood in the lab room where the process was explained in very technical terms about how they tell the plant species variations and the extensive testing measures.  I had a good conversation with Tom, the ONLY guy who drives the logging tractor which extracts the large Fir trees.  I have had my brow sweaty and hands dirty on these farms and it has been amazing to know that each lavender plant will be harvested in a few years, and these little trees I planted in Hawaii will grow tall and strong for 30 years then provide an incredible essential oil for people to enjoy. 

Young Living came into my life and was there for me when I needed it the most as I searched questions that have no answers. How did this happen to my daughter?  She's only 6.  The Cancer agency documents that only 5%-10% of cancers are genetic.  So what does that mean the other 95% are?  Are they within our control?  If so, what do we need to do to?  The first thing is to honestly look at what we put in, on and around our bodies.  Not only OUR bodies, but of all the bodies we love and care for.  

If it is a chemical and there is a chemical free alternative, why wouldn't you choose the latter?  We do now. 

 We have made a choice to live as chemical free in our home as possible.  It's all about the more you know... Now THAT brings me joy.  I Choose the Joy in bath time by reaching for our Lavender Mint Shampoo and Conditioner knowing that my children's hair will not be saturated in chemicals which can be measured in their bloodstream in 26 seconds.  Gross, I know.  I Choose the Joy in serving myself and everyone a couple ounces of NingXia Red antioxidant drink at breakfast to prepare for school and work.  I Choose the Joy in applying one single oil to help bring mental clarity when I need it the most before my busy day starts.  Here's one of my little secrets; I actually sing/hum the song "I get by with a little help from my friends" each time I apply oils to my skin or start my diffuser.  It's just one little thing that gives me a smirk, as I consider all of these uplifting oils my friends. 
I Choose the Joy in my career as well.  Young Living turned into an accidental business for me, as I was so in love with my starter kit and how each of those oils made me feel, I told everyone I knew, and they needed one too.  From there, educating and teaching others became a priority as I wanted people to know better and do better.  The business has turned into a valuable, residual income in our household that I cherish.  It pays our bills, puts food on our table, and allows my kids to join every extra curricular they want to explore without finances always holding us back.  More importantly, I have been able to help many others receive commission cheques to lift that same weight off their shoulders.  Getting paid to do something you love is what work should really be.  I choose this work.  My mind makes choices all day long.  It's either choosing Joy, or the opposite.  I Choose the Joy.  One thing is for certain, I choose the Joy in Young Living. 

If you still have your hand raised and need some direction in choosing the Joy in your life, let me help you bring Young Living Essential Oils into your home and I will teach you personally how to let them put a smile on your face.  They are truly the bright shining piece of joy you have been searching for.  I promise.

Last day of the Month

Last day of the Month
When you count minutes backwards from 11:59 on the last day of the month, you know you're in commission sales.  I find this exhilarating!  I see my friends, my family, and some men and women I have never even met in person, all shooting for their goals.  Some are already celebrating while others are still doing their hustle to the very end and do you want to know which 6 words I ALWAYS see pop up?...

What Can I Do To Help?

Why does a stranger help a stranger?  They do this to see each other hit goals and succeed.  It's really no fun to celebrate alone.  I have this community of people who I get to work with daily, who are cheering for me and I'm cheering for them.  I can advise people of how they can earn money and how they can save money.  I would consider this pretty much the best job ever!

Earlier today, I got to run with my kids in the Believe in the Gold run for Childhood Cancer and watch them play with friends from the cancer clinic, their best buds, and also meet a new family receiving a playhouse from my children's fundraising.  So...that's what I got to do today and this is what I got to do tonight:  (I'll just say it right now... #blessed).
About 20 minutes ago, I was helping someone place their order online while we chatted on the phone.  She wanted to boost up her order so she would receive the free Vetiver and Lemon oil this month.  She has heard of Vetiver and wants to try it on her son before he heads off to school Monday to make the day a bit better for him and not so overwhelming.  In the meantime, as we were talking, her stomach kept growling and she told me how her tummy has been upset the last two weeks.  I let her know that ICP is great for digestive and she busted out laughing!  Apparently, her sister came from out of town a few weeks back, brought some ICP and she tried this supplement.  She said it was exactly what she needed but had been too embarrassed to ask anyone to help her get her hands on some.  What perfect timing! 
Now, this YL member is going to get her free oils that she wanted so badly, some digestive comfort that she clearly is in need of AND she will also be earning commission this month because a few of her friends also had some items they needed for the house this month.  I am so happy for her!
Guess what!  This member is not even in my downline.  She is crossline to me and I reap NO benefit from her order.  We have mutual friends and the person who typically helps her order is away on a family holiday.  Do I wish I had that OGV under my organization, well, of course, who wouldn't, but that's how it goes sometimes.  And that's perfectly OK.  :)    

We now have 40 minutes to go until midnight.  My work is done and everyone I know reaching for a goal this month hit what they were going for!  I'll chop that up to a great day at work!

Great product. Great business.  Great people.  I would choose it over and over again every day. 



Have you ever attended a Pity Party?

Have you ever attended a pity party?  Better question, have you ever hosted one?   Do you need to plan for it to specifically rain on that whole day, or just the hours of the party?  Have you gotten media attention by hosting a facebook event for your party, or do you have a designated pity party planner who gets the ball rolling?  Do you single out your target market to attend your pity party or is it an open invitation event?

When you feel that you may attend someone's pity party, or are thinking of hosting one, please remember that there are only so many hours in a day. Make each of those hours mean something.  Have a look around and just ask yourself how you can make this a better situation.  By that, I mean, what is your 'role'.  How can what you do impact things to make them better?  It's a good question to ask.  Have a little think about it.

There are some great oils by Young Living to help you while you ponder.  I would start with Acceptance oil.  Forgiveness oil is the next that I like to apply.  If you need a drop of Release oil over the liver, then by all means, give yourself one.  

Smile, breathe and make it a good day.  It's your choice, choose the joy today.
