This particular post isn't a review of her book (perhaps later); this is a means to tell you I do want to begin counting my moments...I want to begin focusing on and being thankful for the blessings that are right in front of me...and I want to encourage you to do the same thing.
I stumbled upon someone’s personal mission statement today, and I loved it. I have heard recommendations from different leaders to have a personal mission statement for your life. I have always loved the idea, but never really sat down to write my own or tried to figure out what I want to strive for in life.
Seeing the mission statement today inspired me, and I finally have come up for one of my own. Are you ready?
I intend to live with passion, believe in myself, continually demonstrate Love, and help others in my highest capacity.
That’s it. What do you think? Do you have a personal mission statement?
Spring allergies threaten to ruin my favorite time of year, especially since I avoid taken medications as much as possible. My go-to natural treatment for allergies is Lavender.
* put a drop or two in your hand, then use a finger to spread some down your nose and cheek bones
* cup your hand to your face and breathe in the aroma
* drop a couple drops on your pillow at night (will help you relax, too!)
Other benefits of Lavender:
* it is great to treat sunburns
* eases sore muscles
* de-stress, promotes relaxation
Lavender is one of the most versatile Essential Oils there is...and one I do not let us run out of.
This week I have the pleasure of spending time with some family in Florida. I am SO happy to be here. It is days like today you want to hold on to forever. As the day ends,and people go to bed...it is almost sad to bid the day goodbye.
I am so, incredibly, blessed.I am surrounded by people who fill my heart with such joy and peace. For a little while this endless ache for something better passes away, and I am filled with contentment. I really should make more time to be in this place.
As everyone was going to bed tonight Yngvild asked me if I would stay up and watch a movie with her. We decided to watch Eat Pray Love. This is one book I have read more than once, and I have loved the movie just as much. Tonight I finally get it. I get why I have been drawn to Elizabeth Gilbert who was on this quest to feel something. To feel life, love, devotion to something greater than yourself. I have been on a quest of my own this past year. A quest to find me, to find purpose. Weeks like this, surrounded by loved ones...they help.
Blessings and good night.
