There's news and growing concern about a pandemic that is going to effect all of us in some way. As we wait for some clear understanding, March just came in like a lamb. No large and looming weather reports to suggest it will be a tough month so let's be vigilant and patient and make good decisions. If March goes out like a lion, let's be prepared.
Last year at this time, we had nowhere special to go. Spring break was just another work week. Our only big travel plans would've been to Puerto Rico, but they were still struggling with the aftermath of hurricanes. I can tentatively plan some events and classes, but we're all in a waiting pattern.
The good news is, we do have a home in Florida now and I can take my Winter Blues there to thaw out! Have you ever imagined being able to getaway from the cold, wet, half mud half snow Minnesota-spring-birth-pains? Not just a week in Mexico, Arizona or a tropical island, but to an actual "home in Florida!" This is what makes me feel blessed and lucky to see my hard work rewarded and my big dreams unfold!
I guess I view "luck" as a response to being prepared. The more we plan for success (or even survival) the more likely we will weather any storm. I've spent my life working on my Wellness, Purpose, Abundance and Education. It will pay off as we navigate the coming months. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you and your friends, family and Young Living team! I want all of you to feel "Blessed and Lucky" for many years to come.
I always think of February (and especially Valentine's Day) as my backup plan if I miss getting all my cards, letters, gifts and gratitude out to my Young Living friends and family. I did pretty well over the holidays so I don't have to "say I'm sorry!" Because, love means never having to say your sorry, right?
There are very few people who feel the need to say they're sorry after discovering essential oils and Young Living! However and whoever, has set you on this journey of wellness, purpose and abundance, there is some gratitude to be expressed and you can do it any time of year. It's just nice to have holidays to become conscious of all the good things in life and to express it to all we have connected with, because of essential oils or a nutritional path that brought us together.
Dave coined an acronym for me over twenty years ago, TSIO: The Search Is Over! We had no idea how many years we would be involved in Young Living or to what extent. We had no idea what a few tiny little bottles of oil had in store for us. My story actually started with the Christmas holidays when I came across an add for the Ancient Oils of Scripture. I bought them for myself! Years later I bought rose essential oil and felt like royalty.
Even though I have never been concerned with "rank" in my journey, I am always concerned about helping others achieve their dreams. Some people start with a simple goal of buying rose oil or any special blend that is beyond their budget when they first enroll. Some people set a goal toward affording an AromaComplete Kit, winning a Young Living Cruise or achieving a higher level of compensations. A few people work really hard to reach the level of a Royal Crown Diamond. That is a huge commitment, but very doable!
Any successful entrepreneur will tell you the same thing, "You have to be passionate about your work. You have to love what you do and you have to treat your business like a business, not a hobby." The great thing is, you get to treat people with love and kindness while you grow. Our products are "infused with the love of oils and the love of plants!" We're way ahead of the curve as a fair, generous, organic, and conscious company. The next generation is looking for that platform.
I may not get my Valentine's cards out (I'm in Florida), but it's a good time to let your friends and family know you love them. It's a good time to gift yourself some roses (if your BFF doesn't) or some rose oil, because you're worth it! It won't be long before spring arrives so use these last few weeks of winter to Share Your Passion for Young Living!
