We don't like "resolutions" for New Year, we like "reflections" and then figuring out what wasn't working and how we can begin a "New You" journey. Everybody thinks about how they'll move forward in a new year (or perhaps a pivotal birthday or even a traumatic event) that makes us rethink the past year and reset our future. Many of us have been challenged beyond our senses in 2020. No one could have prepared for the world turning upside down, except that some of us have more tools than others to ride out some tough waves in 2021.
I tend to reflect on my years with Young Living, because I started this journey during the holiday season in 1998. I reflect on how my life changed because of essential oils and how my drive to find the best natural path to wellness for me, my family, and to aid in the recovery of my patients in hospitals and clinical settings, would go in the direction of my goals. I had no idea that I could become so well educated by a company created by Gary and Mary Young back in 1996. I had no idea that I'd be surrounded by so many great people (and professional relationships) that would help me as a student as well as a future teacher. I didn't know that I would become a teacher, and a leader or that that role would be woven into my dreams. Essentials for Healthy Living was meant to encompass my mission, and include a yearly (and lifelong) focus on wellness, purpose, abundance and education.
This year, more than ever, I am focused on my family's health, my friends and my Young Living team to stay above the wellness line. It's time to prove that a strong immune system is the best way to face an ever changing environment. I doubt that Gary was projecting how essential oils in every home in the world, could make a huge difference right now. We know that a global world, means global contact. We also know Young Living is on the forefront of science and research to give us the best information and support possible.
Essential oils are "little bottles of LIGHT." How many times to see or hear that we have to "be the light" in these dark times. How many of us truly understand the transfer of photosynthesis into plant life is light! And that we have the ability (and the right) to apply them, diffuse them and share their amazing power with the world. This is not a comment on any prevalent disease, it is a comment how how nature is always producing an answer. We have to watch for those answers, while reflecting on where each of are today, in a new year, under new circumstances.
I'm starting my "New You" commitment to declutter. My brain is cluttered, my office is cluttered, my home is cluttered and it's time to purge and reorganize in order to "see the light at the end of the tunnel." I have plenty of essential oils to help me get there. I have plenty of nutritional supplements to build my immune system to stay vibrant and I have plenty of great people around me to celebrate another year. We'll reflect on 2021 in December. Meanwhile, I hope you find the "New You" that you've been waiting to see in the mirror.
