Here I am. Bree. In all of my 41 year old rawness. Openly embracing myself and the changing year, filling my heart with hope, and moving into awareness of what needs nurturing in the year ahead.
As many of you…goals, dreams, resolutions and change are floating in our heads and hearts this first day of the year. And, like you, I’ve been deep in thought; meditation, self love and family these past couple of weeks….anticipating and preparing for this day, even more than Christmas. I’ve been readying my heart and opening my soul for 2018…letting go, reflecting, researching, and discovering a way to really allow myself to be the BEST me this year.
As many of you know, this past year I became a Young Living Distributor. A decision that has changed my life, as well as my family’s, in immeasurable, beautiful ways. From the extra monthly income, to the new friendships formed, the constant uplifting women I get to work with day in and day out, and to the unexpected journey of self discovery…it has been one of the most incredible journey’s of my life.
Using essential oils has always been a part of my adult life, however, I never used them on a daily basis or therapeutically. Going chemical free in our home in union with these tiny vials of goodness has caused a complete shift in our emotional, spiritual, and physical lives. It just brings up such joy in my heart even thinking of it!
I will be forever grateful to Young Living (and my amazing team) for allowing a safe space for me to find me again. To dream big dreams once more, and to embrace the spaces that I knew deeply as a young girl…rediscovering the core of what makes me, me.
2018…my time for going back to journaling, creating art, writing, and self love…finding me again bit by beautiful bit, taking care of myself physically, and connecting once again with so many I love and miss. So much growth it fills me with joy.
I have had my eye on “Rituals for living Dream book and Planner” for quite some time, and was blessed to receive it for Christmas! I am loving every single aspect of it’s pages. Places to dream, quotes to help manifest, goal setting, art space, ritual setting…oh my, I could go on and on. It also contains your daily, weekly and monthly calendars. As you can see here, I am already LOVING it!
I am excited to share my journey with you this year. I would adore it if you took my hand, followed me, and most importantly, be here for each other to cheer one another on….where ever we are at in our own paths.
During our last team meeting, my sweet leader, Danielle shared this with us:
You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14
It really hit home. If we are just like morning dew on this earth, here for a brief moment and then gone, why not be mindful and intentional with our souls, our health, and our relationships every minute of the day?
This is my 2018 journey and I would be blessed to share it and yours with you.
