Happy New Year! I’m guessing this New Years Eve might look very different for a lot of people. Collectively we are living through times that historians will write books about. I’m choosing to look forward, and choose hope. My words for 2021 are Serenity and Perserverance.
I know that there will be challenges in 2021, but I hope to be a source of peace for my community. I tend to outwardly exude positivity, while inwardly breeding anxiety. By choosing serenity as a focus for 2021 I hope to constantly remind myself, empower myself, to take a deep breath and not contribute to the craziness around me. In also selected perseverance, I’m acknowledging that things may not be easy in 2021. Through this acknowledgment I give myself permission to have bad days, but not get trapped by those bad emotions.
2020 taught us all that we are directly responsible for our health and well being. I spent the first half of 2020 in fear of COVID and it’s impacts. I spent the later half of 2020 taking control of my emotions, and refusing to carry the burdens of the world. I enter 2021 feeling empowered. I have bad days. I have hard days. I let myself feel those emotions, but I’m empowering myself with tools to cope in the difficult days.
Essential Oils have become a tool for my family in contributing to our mental and physical health. I know understand that there is nothing magical that will fix my bad days, but there are things I can do to make each day a little easier. There are things that I can do to help before simply taking more medications. These things are important to me, and I want to stay on this journey in 2021. So for January I will be launching Essential Oils 101. Each blog will focus on Young Livings most frequently asked questions. So follow along, like each post, and ask questions. It’s free and maybe together we will gain tools to conquer 2021.
Happy New Year and please let us know how we can support your essential oil needs.
