Who is ready to get on a journey to a Healthier, more Nourished You.....
I lost my job not to long ago....
Now, now no pity for me... In fact I only pitied myself for about 1 hour so please don't feel sorry for me. After I cried for a bit, (why not, I was at a major loss as to what to do, ya know?), I began to see the blessing getting fired really was.
Getting fired opened myself up to bigger and better things.
I rediscovered my passion for my essential oils business and for this website/blog.
God also opened me up a nice little.... lesson.... reminder... slap on the wrist.... whatever you want to call it haha :)
This lesson was that there is something bigger...
I am only a small part of a much bigger plan and there is always going to be light at the end of the tunnel or there will always be a path to walk.
I have so many dreams but I am reminded that to make those dreams come true I have to fully trust in the plan God has for me. I can't make things happen without Him moving oceans and mountains.
I have faith that God will show me where I am to be going and what I am to be doing.... do you? what's your story? have you figured out the path God wants you on?
So what mile marker are you on? In your journey called life I mean... what marker are you at?
Have you taken a bunch of detours, sped right past the outlooks and pretty scenery, did you take all highway, pick the back roads?
Okay, okay I'm not really referring to an actual drive like in a car. I am referring to our lives and our journey here on earth.
We are all at different points in our journey. Some of us have never seen a pothole and some of us have hit just about every pothole we come across. Some have come up to broken bridges and others to flooded roads. I personally have hit probably 70% of the potholes I have come across, barely made it over broken bridges, have gotten stuck in the mud for a long time taken all the scenic routes I could take cause the scenery is always the best. Am I right?! haha
So, where are you at?
I'll tell you where I am at... I have uprooted myself and my animals and moved over 900 miles, started a new and great job, I have committed to growing this website for all of you and decided God wants me to grow my essential oil health coaching as well. The most important part of where I am at right now is that I am more than ready to take care of my body the way it has been wanting for forever!
What I am ready for is healthy. I am not as skinny as I could be or as skinny as I once was 7 years ago; but I have more pride and appreciation for my body now then I used to. I'm ready to make more of my dreams to come true and to continue to wake up happy everyday. I am ready to have quality people in my life.
I am on a journey and I am not where I want to be or where I could be but I truly love where I am at right now and love the idea of where I am going.
So where are you at? Are you happy with where you are at? Are you proud of where you have come and where you are going? Do you love yourself inside and out regardless?
I apologize for being absent so a little while. I have been planning a big move in my life. I referenced this big move in my post, I Get It Now, and now I am ready to share it with you!
this doesn't effect you has much as it will effect me but none the less I'm gonna share cause I'm EXCITED! lol
I and Horses & Herbs is moving to.......
I am so excited for this move you have no idea. The majority of my family I am closest to lives in Oklahoma and I am looking forward to be able to see them more then once a year. Who doesn't love their crazy but awesome family! A short tangent, my family is nuts! Well I'm crazy too so what do you expect lol but my point is that as crazy as they are and how often I just don't understand them and their choices I still love them. They are still awesome in their own way and I want them in my daily life because out of all the people I have known and friends I have had, my family are always the one who are always there.
So anyways, I've been pulling this plan, this move, for the last 2 months and frankly to me this is pretty quick. I feel this could only have happened so quickly because God wanted it.
Let me explain how I know. Starting in fall I had this gut feeling (I have a lot of them, all the time lol) that I needed to start searching for a job. Soon after I had another gut feeling that I wanted to search for a new place to live. I vowed to myself before to always trust my gut. I feel strongly that this is how God chooses to speak to me most of the time.
So, I followed my gut. I started searching for jobs, new apartments/houses. I talked to a lot of people. Guess what, my search was not working. The whole time I was asking God to point me in the right direction. Well He was!! just not like I expected. He kept telling me NO. No this isn't the job for you, this isn't the house for you, no, no , no.
I was defeated for a little bit. Then!... I asked God again... "What are you trying to tell me?"....
(I vowed to myself to ask God lots of questions like this... it works ya'll)
After I asked this I started searching again and found some jobs in Oklahoma. I was hesitant at first but truly felt I was to submit my resume. 2 months later I had myself a new awesome job. One week or so after I accepted the job I found myself a house (that's pretty quick in my opinion).
See everything happened so quickly and smoothly that I feel this could have only happened because this is what God wanted. So, here I am moving my life, blog, future dreams to Oklahoma!
I feel some big things coming on and I feel they can only happen cause I'm moving. Lets face it as well; my tribe is in Oklahoma not here in Indiana.
So with all that said, I hope you join me in my journey as it takes us to new adventures in Oklahoma, the state I love!
Till Next Time,
I get it now.....
Its only taken me since 2009ish to get it...
I wish I got it earlier; but at least it makes sense now...
I hope you have already read my previous post about which social media I deleted, if not you can read it here (Why I Deleted Some Social Media).
In this post I want to talk to you about the social media I chose to keep, why I kept them and how I use them. :)
This is not the first post or the last you will ready in regards to social media. So long as we have social media around; we will either hate it or love it. It will either cause problems or create some good like spread a positive message.
Why do we have some many platforms though and do we need them? I don't think so...
Have you ever thought about that? I do, all the time. The question should almost be, why do we care what they think. I struggle with this all the time. On second thought, I used to deal with this issue all the time. Used to...
