This completely blew me away yesterday. I went over to my dads and he's been cleaning. Yeah. That's a whole story in itself. Well he found some Girl Scout cookies my mother had hidden dated back in 2008. Yep. He says I hope it's ok I threw them out. Um yeah. A neighbor comes by to thank him for the cookies. Wait what cookies? Yes. The ones he threw out. The horror. She says. "Honey. They are filled with preservatives. They are fine"
I have to ask
....Are we not learning anything? This is so upside down, I didn't even know what to say.

My last post was about doing things my way. Maybe this is a sign I shouldn't. Haha. New skills, learning to be a lefty.
So true. If I'm feeling like crap, it's probably because I've been eatening crap. I need to get out of the cycle when I'm sick I just want comfort food. Well actually, I just need to have healthier comfort food.
As the title suggests I'm learning life lessons, everyday. Today Sept 9th. I'm taking back my life. Yes, even I don't have all the answers and control over my life. I've been pushed into a box and am emerging. I guess that's why I like butterflies so much and use them in my business. Out of the cocoon emerges something different, not quite the same, but different.
I've been furthering my education and of course with that comes restraints. This is the proper way to do this or that. well after much thought and a little guidance. Things around here are going to be taking on a bit of a different tone and focus. I spend time with my clients, helping them get to this point, and yet I am not there myself. Kinda hypocritical, right? It's always a process to get where you want to be and we have all traveled that road at some point in ours lives. Your future self doesn't happen over night. All though I will say, I've been struggling with some marketing materials for quite a while now, so in reality it just isn't happening. I wouldn't call it procrastination, I just cant work out the details. I don't want to spend money on cute little white bags, when I really need something different. I am attempting (I said attempting...) to curb my spending and really focus on intentional purchases. Apparently my brain has come to accept this and the other night I dreamed it. I told my husband it was like magic it all just was plain as day what I needed and wanted for my vendor event. He says it's gonna take more than magic. Well duh, I am just saying I can see it more clearly now. I'm not doing it the way someone else wants me too. How it should look, I'm doing it my way. My future did become clearer over night. It was many over nights, but I did see the ending. Which is why I am saying some things are just going change around me, here, there, everywhere. Or maybe I'm just going to see things a bit differently now.
I always ask people about the dreams they have as it's always fascinated me. I often felt I was dreaming wrong. Yes I know. Silly thoughts take over me at times. I try to bring it up in just everyday conversations, not like sessions where the client will pause and think about the answer they should give. I just want an answer, if you had a dream last night, were you in the past, present or future? Simple. I wonder what one can do to help the subconscious to dream about the future? I hate to say it but how can we have more "enlightened" dreams? ya I said it. My inquiring mind wants to know. I'd love to discuss it. Or even just post past, present, future in the comments. That would be cool too.
I probably use stress away the most , but It was time to restock a few of my other rollerballs. Stress away is pretty much my perfume. All day, everyday. I don't have a lot of stress in my life, well maybe it's because I use the rollerball. Hmmm
My son in law loves the deep relief. I gave him one for his birthday while at a steakhouse. Oh lord. I think we may have cleared the room. Hsha but it does work wonders. The peppermint is such a driving force into your muscles.
Breathe again takes me back to a time when I was little. I was a child of Vicks. Seriously I think I get a little woozy everytime I smell it. I'm never with out these. #lifesavers.

R.I.P Bamboo... was a great Diffuser for 3 1/2 years. I've never had any problems with my young living Diffuser and I use it a lot. I've been wanting to get another one. I've had my eye on the #rainstonediffuser for awhile. I gotta save my pennies for that one. What is your favorite and where did you get it? I'm not opposed to other companies. I just need a new one. These are so great in the home. I don't burn candles anymore or use chemical sprays. My oils smell up my home and give me health benefits, what more can I ask for? #youngliving #essentialoildiffuser #essentialoils #diffuser #bamboodifuser
I love collecting jars. I never know what to do with them, but none the less I have jars. I store my craft supplies in them. Buttons, tiles, beads, bottle caps. It's organized craft hoarding. Pickle jars are a popular size in my collection so that's what I started with. The chatted up a lady at Joanne's craft store about this paint. I didn't want chalkboard paint, or glossy enamel, but it needed to stick to glass and be matte. She suggested this. (Thank you nice lady it was exactly what I wanted). I decided to make fake labels, so I just masked the off an area with tape and painted. These are not perfect labels. Who cares. I needed a second paint to actually write the label, which I didn't buy. Update later
Jars with labels.
Now for the herb garden. I used some pebbles from my garden walk (shhh don't tell hubby). And some tiny broken tiles for drainage. It's a must have. Something for drainage. Your herbs will not grow. Potting soil was next and then I purchased some stater herbs. Today I used cilantro and cinnamon basil. Seeds will work to, but I'm impatient. I wanted the full effect today. Next time seeds. So now I just added the plants, water and a sunny spot. You can do this. It's easy.
Who has a project for all these lids I will have left over?
I'm always finding bottles on my walks. A perk for living in the city, I guess. Unfortunately lots of people just drop their trash wherever. I love up cycling so I'm always bringing home something to add to my ever growing stash of recycled art ideas. . This one I added turquoise and orange colored glass tiles, a ceramic heart, glass stars and a blue glob. White grout and it's sealed for water protection.
My Southwest Mosaic Love Bottle is ready to be sent to you.

What's in your diffuser today? It's Tuesday and I need to be productive. Wednesday is trash day and honestly I forgot last week, so I still have last weeks trash and now this weeks trash. Joy. Lots of paperwork to go through so a mental helper is welcome. I have such a problem throwing out paper. Today I found bank statements from 2002. Ugh. Well business expenses need to held for 10 years, right. So I kinda have a reason. I'm just off by 5 years. Purge purge purge. How hubby and I owned several like 15-16 rental homes and let's just say a paperwork nightmare. Business sold and yet I have all this. I need to take some responsibility for my thousands of little scraps of notes. Haha. Ok maybe not thousands, but defiantly ideas, thoughts, and strategies. I've got quite a workout for the recycling center team today. I need a better system that's for sure. What are your problem areas? .
Let's help each other. I recommend as you get Lemongrass and rosemary essential oils . They are one of my favorite blends the mental boost they give me is amazing.
Go ahead oils, do your magic !
