Sick and Thinking

I have a head cold.  My husband can tell you I am not taking being sick well at all.  I haven't been sick in at least over a year since I started eating more raw.  Luckily, I had most of yesterday and all of today off from work.  Though I had planned on getting a bunch of things done today right now I am sitting on the couch writing this blog post.  There are times you just have to listen to your body and mine is saying I need a break.  I am listening to it even though my mind is telling me all the things I could be getting done.

I believe this all came around to give me time to really reflect on my life and where it is heading.  I've done a lot of thinking/planning/wishing lately.  I've been doing a lot of thinking of what I really want to do in life.  Jen and I had a wonderful talk last night when I saw her for a massage.  Right now I have a job, one I happen to be really good at and enjoy but not necessarily something I want to do for the rest of my life.  What do I really want to do?  I want a Reiki practice that incorporates aromatherapy to provide  powerful wellness management for those seeking it.  To do this I am getting my Reiki attunements, well at least the 1st one now and hopefully the 2nd one in the near future with the 3rd not too far off in the future.  I am trying to take all of Jen's aromatherapy classes with the hope that soon I'll be able to become a Young Living distributor.

If you follow this blog you know that I am a big proponent of essential oils and healthy living.  I want to be able to teach others who are interested how to follow this way of life.  I am so excited that I am actually getting started with all of this.  This is something more than a passing fancy, this is something I feel called to do.  My ultimate goal is to eventually open a practice.  I need to learn up though in how to start a business (right now all I really have is a hobby with Soapy Joes) and how to manage all of that.  I would love to offer sessions on Friday afternoons and maybe all day Saturdays and if it gets bigger, how exciting that would be.  I cannot wait for it all to come into place and I think it will.


  1. O no! Don't go there. You didn't get sick for a reason. You're body's trying to get rid of stuff. Let it. You just happen to get a blessing along the way. Reflection. Time to do so. There's so much confusion and chaos in this world. Sometimes, our bodies tell us to take a break and let it regroup! Mine did the same thing yesterday. Woke up with an earache. And I thought, "What the heck! I don't get sick!" So I decided, "Im not sick!" My body just needs to regroup. SO I did some things yesterday and asked my husband to fend for himself this morning. And he did so, with a gracious heart. I so love him! He even tucked me in last night and said "sleep in, my love". So I got up at 6 with him, and grabbed the things I needed in my room, checked the banking (like clockwork), and crawled back into bed. When I got up, I at least had more energy. And I grabbed a shower (with the shampoo and rinse I just made the other day), and started my day.
    I's so blessed to have found this site. God's always got a plan. We just have to be quiet sometimes and listen. He never screams. It's in the quiet moments.......If there's a scream, it's not from Him. It's from the world around us, as a consequence to not listening to the stillness in His voice.
    You're such a blessing to so many of us. I can't wait to continue to learn. I'm blesses to have a husband who works his butt off, so that I can be a mom and a wife, and learn how to make our lives a bit better everyday.
    And your site rocks!!!!
    Be well! And don't rush. You'll get there.
    I can tell complacency is not in your blood;)
    So no worries!

  2. Thank you for the lovely comment! I am still working on this cold but it's given me a lot of thinking and planning time which is good. I am lucky I have a hubby that is willing to help me out when I am a bit down. Right now I am sipping tea and writing to you. Thank you for reading and feel free to subscribe!
