We have to celebrate every last drop of summer and keep autumn where it belongs-after Labor Day!
While I know we still have a lot of summer left, somehow once August arrives- our focus shifts from the fun of summer to planning for fall.
Maybe it.... is seeing our children getting older, or experiencing the loss of important people in our lives this year. Whatever the reason for our desire, we know we want to hang on to these delicious days! As I write this I am reflecting on Gary Young's passing and a dear friend, both who have left the earth too soon.
Even with the losses and changes in our life, we feel so blessed to have spent a good deal of time with our family and friends.
We enjoyed connecting with people dear to us, from Minnesota to Michigan, Idaho, Utah and Canada. We watched our daughter take a first place win with her short program in The Junior Ladies figure skating competition in Sun Valley!
Our business welcomed several new Rising Stars Team Members and watched many existing members meet their goals and reach higher! We gathered for educational events, Passion Rallies and of course -Young Living Grand Convention.
We collectively planted seeds for the future while reaping the benefits of seeds previously sown-together. Though I never have time to plant a real garden, it is symbolic of the cycles of life and the beauty of growing a YL Living Business! We are excited about the bounty we are all creating and we love living with Wellness, Purpose and Abundance while helping others to do the same!
Here are a few pictures from our busy summer, we would love to hear about yours!
Summer is always an exciting time for us, celebrations and reunions with family and friends. Young Living Grand Convention is something our family and our team, look forward to all year!
This summer threw us a couple of pretty big losses that we have had a hard time coming to terms with, we apologize for our delay on our blog.
The loss of D. Gary Young is huge. He has affected so many lives and influenced so many people, places and ‘plants' across the world, that it’s hard to imagine we can ever fill the void. But, that’s how true "Positive Energy" flows in and around the thing called, “LOVE.” There was so much love in Gary’s heart that he attracted millions of people and left them all feeling better and smelling better!
There is space to fill now, but it is incredibly bright, beautiful and strong. It seems to have Gary’s hand, gently blessing everyone with his Spirit. One of his favorite oils is Highest Potential and you could feel it’s vibration at the Vivint during every general session, The Salt Palace, in every room and workshop, in every attendee, in the restaurants, and even the restrooms as people carried a torch in their hearts for Gary, Mary, Jacob and Joseph and the YL staff! His loss can best be filled by “Our Potential” coming to light.
Since Gary’s memorial service in May, followed by weeks of sorrow, stress and a personal friend also passing, convention actually helped replenish my energy. Knowing I could review any workshop from home in my own time, I was able to shop and support the many creative vendors that offer tools, books and beautiful crafts and jewelry to bring back as gifts for some Rising Stars! I’m excited about some new contests, incentives and action plans I am launching soon.
Stay tuned! Join the Rising Stars Team FaceBook page - if you haven’t already. It is never too early to start planning for Grand Convention 2019, book your tickets and hotel now! May we continue to move forward together- with the vision of stewardship, leadership and success that Gary Young held for everyone involved with Young Living.
Enjoy the summer, keep planting seeds and look forward to an abundant harvest!
