Sometimes a ‘Higher Power’ brings me back to my path and my purpose. Sometimes a single word can help me see my way through the chaos and uncertainty when life just doesn’t seem to give me a break and let me do what I want to do. My travel schedule still leaves me tired and dragging myself back to the office, where I really do love to be! My family loves our lake home and are happy to have spent the first official summer together after construction and cleaning. Mason is our “home-body" most of all…. Me…. least of all.
Maddy is heading to Shattuck-St. Mary’s for her senior year and it feels like sending our ‘first born child’ off to college. We are packing, sorting, jumping registration hoops, securing her a living situation, reliable transportation, hopes, fears... and I’m still invested in her daily schedule of coaching, practice, dresses, skates, laces, etc….
Whew! So a single word that describes all the changes we as a family are going through, Young Living is going through after Gary’s death in May, and that seasons go through every year to help us prepare for change is: TRANSFORMATION! And the best thing about it is, “I have an oil for that!!!”
I took a moment to put some on and read the ingredients: Lemon, Sacred Frankincense, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Cardamom, Clary Sage, Idaho Blue Spruce, Palo Santo and Ocotea. These are all sourced in different parts of the world from our Young Living farms, partner farms and certified “Seed to Seal” growers who are trained to guarantee the purity of the oil and the integrity of sustainable farming, every step of the way.
Autumn’s approach is to ground our minds, bodies and spirits hanging on to the joy of summer’s bounty and start preserving the harvest. Most of us don’t rest after summer. We restructure and we get busy trying to capture the essence of sunshine in all the fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and essential oils we love that will support us through the winter months ahead.
I can truly embrace the feelings I’ve been having and the word God spoke to me: “Transformation.” I can take a breath, look at life from my patio and enjoy Medicine Lake changing colors, cooling off and prepping my boys for Hockey….
In Minnesota it's time to transition into different footwear and gear!
Time to lace up!
Good-bye August- Hello September!
