Hello friends, and welcome to my journey to be more “better.” This blog will serve as a launchpad for me to discover better ways to improve my life and the lives around me. By all means, I am NOT perfect (and yes, mom, I know my title is grammatically incorrect), but I think instead of striving for an unattainable goal of the perfect life, I want to find what works for me and my family – to find our more better.
To start this journey, I am going on a wellness exploration to see how Young Living essential oils and simple changes in my lifestyle will affect my mind, body, and spirit. I hope to gain inspiration and knowledge I can share with you as we all strive to live better, healthier lives.
Why Start Now?
I’m beginning down this path for a number of reasons. One, I have a wedding coming up this year and aside from getting back down to a healthier weight, I want to be the best version of me as I marry the love of my life. Two, I’ve had a rough go of it in my twenties and am looking to reset some unhealthy habits I’ve developed to deal with emotions and those factors that are just not in our control. Three, along with gaining a husband (have I mentioned how incredible he is?), I’m also becoming a part of his loving family. It was his mom and sister in particular who first introduced me to essential oils. Over the last few years, I’ve been able to see how they use essential oils in their everyday and in their wellness routine. But it wasn’t until his mom left a bottle of Thieves cleaning spray with us that I really experienced what essential oils have to offer (more on Thieves later). So, fresh off of our family Fourth of July vacation, and an ordered starter pack on the way, I’m ready to dive into my journey to more better.
So What’s Next?
My plan is to start this journey the way that is advised – slow and steady. With my Young Living essential oil starter pack, I get 11 essential oils, along with a few sample packs of Thieves household cleaner and their NingXia Red product. In the next few months, I will be implementing the oils one at a time into my daily life. My goal is to find ways that work best for me and my lifestyle. And when I say lifestyle I mean the way I live my crazy, sometimes hectic, travel-ridden, beautiful life. My hope is that those who follow me on this ride will be inspired to try some of these new ways to lead a healthier and more fulfilling life.
