The first half of 2017 has taken us through quite a loop, but my little family has grown stronger through it. I'm learning every day how strong you truly can be when you need to, and am incorporating my own personal lessons into helping encourage others through a new coaching program I'm launching.
I am loving every moment of chasing after my now 3 year old who loves to help me with everything, and have found serious fulfillment coaching my customers and clients into seeking wellness, purpose, and independence. I'm also coaching several incredible women who have taken on the challenge to build their own coaching businesses with me. And yes, we still manage to schedule in plenty of exclusive family time!
In August my husband and I will be welcoming our second son, which we are super excited about, along with doing some life planning of our own as we embark on a new chapter to our family journey. There is a lot of excitement right around the corner for us, and I can't wait to share with you what we decide!
I recently finished compiling the info from all my toxin awareness posts and eClasses into one convenient eBook that I thought you would enjoy! You're welcome to download it! I've also started running a few webinars and am working on some additional courses too that I hope you will love!
My autoimmune symptoms and seizures have not bothered me at all since September of 2013! Nearly a decade of misery and physical incompetence is in the past!!
As rough as that was to push through, the experience provided a foundation for me to become a strong advocate for avoidable toxin awareness and promoting switching to safer household, cleaning, and personal care products.
I've taken my healthy lifestyle passion to a whole new level, with opening my schedule to mentor a few additional leaders wanting to join in on the movement. It's all so thrilling and has been so emotionally rewarding! Now, instead of falling all the time, I'm taking walks, chasing a toddler, making some incredible friendships, enjoying yoga, and feeling beautifully unleashed.
Last fall I made a guest appearance on my essential oils team's podcast where I discussed my story:
You can see more about essential oils for veterans (and civilians experiencing emotional trauma) on my new page: warmlyrustic.com/veteranseo

I just finished reading Not Just A Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of The Beauty Industry, and have a post planned to discuss some of the eye-opening information!
This book is a bit of a gut-punch with providing eye-opening information about toxic ingredients legally prevalent in our skincare and cosmetics. I truly believe everyone should be aware of this information!!
I am currently reading Daring Greatly, which is a fantastic book designed to help you overcome feeling stuck so you can move forward with your life and goals.
This book has been inspiring with helping find the courage to embrace vulnerability and imperfection to maximize our efficiency and confidence to parent, live, work, and lead.
Up next, I'm planning to read The Great Pain Deception: Faulty Medical Advice Is Making Us Worse, which has me thoroughly intrigued by how the mind plays into illness. I'm looking forward to taking some of the lessons learned and incorporating them into my coaching sessions.
What I find most intriguing about this book is diving into reasons why people feel pain without experiencing physical trauma. I'm so curious to see what it says about how bottling up emotional abuse/pain can manifest into physical pain, illness, and other issues, even without actively recalling the memories.
