2016 provided no shortage of family stress, that will spill over into 2017. While it's taken us through a loop, my little family has grown stronger through it. We've learned the true value of personal development and how it is often the unsuspected answer to so many different kinds of setbacks. I did accept my first guest post here on Warmly Rustic, am thrilled with how it turned out, and will be publishing more frequent guest posts soon that I'm looking forward to!
I am loving every moment of chasing after the little one, and have found serious fulfillment coaching my customers about natural health and wellness, writing on here and my second website (Essential Oils.Life), and coaching several lovely ladies who have taken on the challenge to build their own businesses with me. And yes, we still manage to schedule in plenty of exclusive family time.
I just launched my Healthy Home Email Class, which lasts for 30 days, that covers how to identify toxic ingredients that can harm your health in common cleaning and personal care products. I'd like to personally invite you to take the class. It took me over a year to piece together, and I'm so excited to be able to offer this information in an easy format to help guide you on making your home healthier and happier.
My autoimmune symptoms and seizures have not bothered me at all since September of 2013! Looks like 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 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:

What I'm Reading:
My all time favorite personal development book is The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth: Live Them and Reach Your Potential. I've read it a few times now, and make it a priority to read every year. It's a fantastic distraction from my son's Little Blue Truck book, which is his current favorite. 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! I am currently reading Daring Greatly and The Great Pain Deception: Faulty Medical Advice Is Making Us Worse, and thoroughly enjoying both.
Life is looking lighter and brighter each year, and I cannot wait to share the next chapter with you soon!
