But...what if...

Oh, but what if...

What if you focused on what you want more of, instead of what you don't want?

More always comes...good or bad...the universe is limitless...more always comes...

What if instead of letting one thing start the downward emotional spiral, you let one thing start the spiral upward instead?? Both options are always available...

What if you choose not to struggle? What if life could be easy?

What if you focus on your desires instead of your lack?

What if life is happening for you and you learn to ask the question, "Now what? What do I do now?" and going for magic and everything you want?

What if you fully believed you were born worthy and nothing has or will change that?

What if it is always the best day ever!?

Like attracts like, my friend. Joy attracts joy. Love attracts love...

What are you attracting??

From stinky attitude to gratitude...

I hate to sweat...

I also try hard not to make unnecessary work for others. (Yes, I'm a recovering overgiver...but that's another story...LOL)

Started today by grudgingly grabbing my shovel and heading down the driveway to at least clear the mess the town plow always leaves because the man who offered to plow us out never showed up, mumbling to myself that I knew I should have done it yesterday when the snow was 50 pounds lighter per scoop, questioning why people don't keep their word and feeling a wee bit sorry for myself...

Came back in with a sweaty, stinky body and equally stinky attitude, but the end of the driveway is clear. Mission accomplished.

Hopped in the shower and as the water washed over me, so did a whole new perspective...

What a blessing it is that I am physically capable of shoveling my driveway.

Listening to the music of the birds was magical.

Are you ready for this one?

Just how many snowflakes and raindrops had to fall to create this depth and weight of snow?? Can you even imagine? These snowflakes and raindrops are a simple example of the true abundance, uniqueness, and beauty all around me.

"I make money like clouds make rain" (Melanie Ann Layer) came to mind. 

And I giggled. 

Then, I let it all sink in.

The beauty.

The magic.

My abilities to do all I want and need to do.

The physical release of negative emotional energy while shoveling.

I guess it is okay to sweat every once in awhile...LOL

The abundance that always surrounds me if I take a moment to look for it.

It was all a gift.

And I am grateful.

How will your story be told?

Your whole life will ultimately be summed up in a newspaper column…a page or maybe a page and a half if it is printed out…along with a snapshot of you in a brief moment in time…

Regardless of how well you lived, loved, served, worked…a page…

It will never be able to accurately or completely capture your essence; your laugh; smile; impact; gaze; that twinkle in your eye when you were a bit mischievous; or the way your chin puckered when you were sad. It won’t describe your feelings; your touch; your smell; the good times; the challenging times; your inspirational and touching times; the mundane and boring times; or even the ugly times. Nor will it convey the quiet assurances; the hugs; words of instruction and wisdom; your presence…

A single page…

How will your story be told in hindsight?

Spring is in the air...or is that pollen?

Mud, windy days, sunshine and rain, Spring is always a welcome time of renewal and freedom.
Are you ready for a little spring re-fresh??
How about oral sprays, self-care and mindfulness? That’s what this month’s Wellness Wednesdays have in store for you so, fill up those diffusers, grab your favorite wellness drink, and let’s get started! 
Spring may be beautiful but it can be a bit of a challenge with those acute respiratory needs that pop up, too. These simple rollers and sprays will make the season much easier for you…and your nose…
Changing Seasons Oral Spray
Let me introduce you to your new springtime companion that will give your respiratory system a little TLC.  
We know using oils topically and diffusing them are great health habits, but there is even more benefit in using them on the mucous membrane areas, including your mouth. 
* 10mL glass spray bottle (https://amzn.to/3CAxsnI
* 1 drop each Lavender Vitality, Copaiba Vitality, Peppermint Vitality
* 2 drops Orange Vitality, Lemon Vitality
* Splash Thieves Mouthwash, optional
* Filtered water
Add all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake well. Spritz into your mouth daily or as desired! 
Raindrop Oral Spray
This definitely won’t take the place of a Raindrop session, but sometimes your defenses need a little extra boost, and this combination of oils is a go-to when you need something a little ‘more.' 
* 10mL glass spray bottle (https://amzn.to/3CAxsnI
* 1 drop each Oregano Vitality, Thyme Vitality, Peppermint Vitality, Basil Vitality
* 2 drops Lemon Vitality, Orange Vitality  
* Splash Olive Oil
* Filtered Water
Add all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake well. Spritz into your mouth daily or as desired. Note: this one may tingle a bit, similar to OTC throat sprays. 
Raindrop Roller
This roller is an easy way to harness the power of Raindrop with easy application. I prefer to layer the individual Raindrop oils on the bottoms of my feet, getting the most frequency out of each of the oils instead of averaging them together in a roller, but that’s my personal preference right now. I have used this roller for years and I was never disappointed.
* 10mL roller bottle (https://amzn.to/3H3jBZ4
* 10 drops each Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Marjoram, Cypress, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Aroma 
Siez, Lavender, Valor
* Fill with carrier oil of choice
Apply over lymph nodes, along spine, bottom of the feet as desired
DIY Nasal Rinse
Grab your Neti-pot and whip up your own oil-infused sinus rinse! 
* 10 drops Lavender essential oil
* 15 drops Copaiba essential oil
* 8 Tbsp of ultra fine salt (unprocessed, no iodine) 
Mix well and store in a sealed glass jar. To use, dissolve 1 tsp of salt mixture into 1&1/2 cups of distilled water (or water from a Berkey filter or boil and cool some water), then add to your Neti pot and use as needed. 
DIY Season's Change Capsules
Make using your Vitality oils easy with this simple hack! 
* 2oz glass dropper bottle
* 30 drops each Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Copaiba Vitality
* Olive oil to desired dilution (about 2 Tbsp)
When you're ready to make a capsule, fill an empty vegetable capsule with a dropperful of the blend and take as desired. 
Sinus Support Steam Pot
When you're needing some relief from the pressure that spring can cause your sinuses, give this tried and true trick a go!                                                                                                                                                                                            
* Bowl of very hot, steaming water
* 2-3 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
* 2-4 drops Dorado Azul Essential Oil
Add essential oils to the water (start with the lower end and add more as desired). Place a towel over your head and sit with your head above the steam bath to open the airways. 
Happy Noses Roller
This is a great roller to use anytime you need some sinus relief, but I’ve heard it is pretty great after doing the sinus steam pot! 
* 10mL roller bottle (https://amzn.to/3H3jBZ4
* 20 drops each Dorado Azul, Idaho Blue Spruce
* 10 drops DiGize, R.C.
* 5 drops Peppermint
Roll over your sinus cavities as desired. Take care when using near your eyes and dilute more if needed. If you get it too close to your eyes, simply apply coconut oil over the area.

Are you playing the game of life to win?? *Upcoming CARE Basic Seminar*

Have you ever looked at your life through the lens of a video game??
It’s a wild adventure!! Just spent five days doing just that on a masterclass with Melanie Ann Layer.
My friend, don’t be a non-playing character (NPC) in your own life. Be an active player. To win, you must play.
Play to change your life.
Play to win and leave something beautiful behind. 
You only lose when you power off…
What if you truly learn to play this game of your life well? Playing with everything you have? 
Playing to win and win big and enjoying all the moments along the way??
After all, you created the game. You wrote the guidebook. 
You created the obstacles, gremlins, monsters, detours…
You even sprinkled in cute little hearts, shiny gold coins, a little extra life force for the rough spots you would encounter along the way. 
You determined the level of skill, patience, commitment, and focus needed to be fully ready to move to the next level.
You added in that duality for a little extra something…that frustration that keeps drawing your competitive spirit back in for the next try…the little happy celebrations that give you the pick me up you need to even consider attempting the next level…
Can you lean in, staying focused, committed and determined to have just as much fun in this daily game of life as you did all those nights staying up until 3am just trying to beat the little gremlins on the screen of your favorite game, laughing with friends until you cried, cheering each other on, teasing one another a wee bit, loving the moments, taking the experience and wisdom with you to the next levels, but never forgetting the cherished memories you created along the way?
Player One – are you ready?
