Peace and Sleep… Zzzzz

Ohhh how my life has changed! From insomniac to snoozing in late! Who woulda thunk?

Tangerine, orange, ylang ylang, patchouli and blue tansy (enter scratch and sniff) is a powerful blend. Just two years ago I was up all hours of the night dreaming of getting a good night’s sleep, now melatonin, valerian root and Young Living’s Peace and Calming in the diffuser and 1 hour I am TOAST! That sweet feeling of being rested in the am and not being exhausted all day has returned. For years with fibro I dreamed that this feeling would return but even after many sleep meds I was not successful. Enter Peace and Calming and enter Great Sleep! This will be one oil I will NEVER be without. When traveling this is in my stash for sure!! A few weeks ago the dreaded empty bottle had me in tears. Thanks to a friend she gave up a bottle for the cause of my sleep, it only took a bit of begging! I truly have a love affair with this oil!

One Word for 2015…

In thinking about a word to focus on for 2015, I thought of many…dream, focus, peace, transform, serenity but one stuck with me… HARMONY!

I am needing a little Harmony in my life!

Harmony

Having a bipolar teenager is enough to send even the most calm and collected parent running for the hills or perhaps just under the covers!

Add on top of that being a Law Enforcement Officer’s wife, teaching full-time as a reading specialist working with struggling readers all day, tutoring afterschool, and running a business I need HARMONY Big time!

I am going to get some canvas and paint me a picture to hang up so I can focus on this!

HarmonyPainting

If something can be let go of I WILL LET IT GO… I will not add anymore stress to my already full plate. I will continue to find harmony between my illness and my business sharing my story with anyone who will listen. I will find harmony between my hubby and myself trying to find sometime to focus on each other. I will find harmony between my son and myself, letting the little things that teenagers harp on not get to me so much! I will find the harmony in 2015!

Anxiety- Am I THE Only One?

The American  Psychological Association defines anxiety as an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure.

People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.

Well this is the night I dread each year! Can I be the only ONE??

Everyone seems to love the zombies, freaky masks, vampires and other haunts! (I DO LOVE the princesses and Superheros though)

I KNOW the blood, gore, weapons and clown costumes are FAKE but that doesn’t make my first reaction change in the least!

Fibromyalgia causes my mind to play tricks on me! My first reaction to the scary sights of Halloween is PANIC! I want to run… hide… cover my head and not peek! People often times think being scared is FUN but not for me! I don’t even like thriller type movies or TV shows!

Anxiety 2

So tonight I am oiled up with Stress Away and taking the haunts as they come. I want to lock the door and just say, “Nooooo” but I will suck it up in the spirit of the season! But please tell me I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE GRINNING AND BEARING IT!!!!!!

Lathered up and smelling great! Trying breathe through the panic!  Just saw a zombie Dorothy and Scarecrow (Is nothing sacred?)

STRESS AWAY v1.1

Stress Away

Anyone who knows chronic illness, working or just plain ‘ole life knows stress can affect your body! Teaching full time, tutoring after school and being a mom to two teens and a wife to a police officer coupled with fibromyalgia, chronic daily migraines, lymphocytic colitis, thyroid issues (Hashimoto’s), is almost too much for one little body! Anyone who knows me know I hide my stress well but in reality that does not mean it is not there!

fibro

Well… things began to change when I was armed with this oil. Work stress… apply oil to wrists… home stress… diffuse oil… health stress… bathe in oil (OK, a few drops with Epsom Salt) way better than calgon.
