Healthy For Life
As a child I was always over weight and had a love for food that stayed with me till my adult life. I remember always wanting to be healthy in order to not have the other kids make fun of me or call me fat. I remember starting to jog but quickly that was stopped by my mother who was worried about my safety. As a child food was not about nutrition but more about comfort. It was my friend, my consoler, my addiction. That emotional eating continued into my adult life and is still a struggle to this very day.
Several months back my sister Katy introduced me to essential oils. At first I was skeptical and wondered what sort of scam or new fad she was now into? I did my research though and saw the health benefits that could come from using these oils. As a few months went by I noticed different things. During the dreaded flu season neither myself or my son got sick and I wondered if it was the oil I diffused daily? Neither one of us got the flu shot. I wasn't reaching for my doctor prescribed allergy medicine and I wondered if it was from the allergy roller ball blend I made with lavender, peppermint and lemon essential oils. My son who was constantly up two to threes times an night scaring me half to death by just standing by my bed staring at me calling my name was finally sleeping all night long since I started to diffuse lavender, juniper berry and wild orange in his room. Was it all because of the oils? Yes! When you hear Wellness Advocates tell you that these oils can change your life, it's true for many of us. These oils have and continue to positively change and impact my life everyday. It's not just the oils, it is also the community of positive, caring, enthusiastic individuals who also have embraced essential oils and the change of how we look at taking care of our health now and in the future. Through social media like Facebook or YouTube I am able to interact or watch their videos which are so inspirational. Joining this world it has given me what I have always been looking for...a way to take control of my life! I WANT to be healthier. I WANT to lose weight. I WANT to live in a home free from synthetics or harmful chemicals. These amazing women that belong to this lifestyle have inspired me on how to do just that. Thank you to my sister Katy for introducing me to this world. My journey to a better me has just begun and for once I look forward to my future with hope and excitement rather than fear and worry.
