Just Give it Away Part 2

Some posts require a follow-up, don’t they? Like my Just Give It Away post from Monday. I begged you to find things in your life that you aren’t willing to throw away. I asked you to pinpoint the good people and things in your life that you are committed to fighting for, no matter how hard that fight may get. I especially urged you to look at your relationships to value them enough to not just throw them away. All this leads me to my big follow-up post.

Some relationships DO need to be thrown away. Yep, it’s true, I said it. You see, I have spent a significant portion of my life trying to please people. Not everyone, obviously, but far too many. The sad fact is that many of those people who I have fought so hard to please will never be pleased with me. Heck, most of them aren’t even pleased with themselves.

Some people are just plain toxic. Some are just plain nosey. Some are just miserable, and you know what they say about misery. I have written before about the direction of your life being influenced by the company you keep. Some times you have to trim out the bad to make room for the better people God has waiting to earn more significance in your life.

Sadly, my life has become a predominately facebook life. There is little in person interaction. I intend to work to change that. In the meantime, some people have had to go.

I have never been a fan of blocking people on facebook. I have always just prayed that obnoxious people would come around. Sadly, that rarely happens. The fact is some people don’t deserve the voice they have in your life.

People who continually look into every word you say or post, trying to take offense or pick a fight. People who have no respect for you or your family. People who only want to be supportive of you when it makes them look good. People who search your words for things to gossip about.

Even if those people are family, they have got to go! Shame on them all the more if they are family. God has made you for greatness, He has big plans for all of us. Those plans are often hindered by allowing negative and toxic people to take up too much space in your life. There is that meme about being blocked and “the trash took itself out.” Well, I say it is more like disallowing the trash to continue taking up space in your living room. Don’t allow it. Send it to the curb, find the people worthy of your time, and go be the best you that you can be. I believe in you!

Just Give It Away

There was a song I loved years ago by George Straight called “Just Give it Away.” It wasn’t necessarily a sentiment I shared at the time, I was (am) happily married with many children in the home. I suppose I just liked the tune, plus, it’s George Straight!

throw away, rockin oily momma, rockinoilymomma

The song related a woman coming home to tell her husband to just give everything in the home away, there is nothing worth fighting over and they are both over the fighting. So, just give it (ring included) away. It was just a silly song to me at the time, but today I sit here reflecting on the average American lifestyle, and can’t help but feel disappointed. Some things just aren’t meant to be thrown away.

We live in a “throw away” society. That’s what my kids used to say instead of the word disposable, throw away. What is sad though is just how accurate that word tends to be. Is there truly anything we can’t just throw away or dispose ourselves of these days?

throw away, cloth diapers, dispoable

We have disposable cups, plates, napkins, and silverware. Just throw it away I have heard myself tell my kids. I ask my older kids to bring me a diaper, they ask whether I want the throw away kind because they are easier than cloth. We have disposable or throw away everything these days. This goes all the way up to jobs, friendships, and even marriages.

Didn’t get the promotion (that you weren’t the most qualified candidate for)? Just throw it away; there are other jobs out there. Your friend isn’t there for you when you need her? Well, throw that friendship away too; there are other people out there. Marriage is getting hard? Well, you can throw that away too. Everyone else does, so why not you?

What if you stuck it out though? What if you worked harder on the necessary job and people skills necessary to land that promotion? What would happen if you committed to personal growth? What if you looked at the friendship and what you could do to BE a better friend? What would happen if you committed to being there for your friends? What if you fought harder for your marriage? What would happen if you committed to being a better spouse, to working toward making your marriage and home happier?

I beg of you, find something, anything that you are willing to commit to. Commit fully, and fight for the things, and most especially the people, that are important to you. No doubt, the enemy will be around to test you and break your commitment and willingness to fight. Do It Anyway!Prayer and wise counsel are important, so seek them out. Persist, and hold on to the good that you have in your live. Don’t “Just Give It Away.”

ResOILute Takeaway

I recently attended ResOILute Women’s Conference, an event put on by one of my local Diamond Young Living leaders. The theme of the conference was guarding your heart.

Proverbs 4:23

During the question and answer session, we were able to hear the heart of the 4 panel discussion experts, each different ranks within Young Living and each with their own story. This was so powerful to me, especially hearing from Sera Johnson.

Sera shared about making it to the top ranks of the company by happily doing her own thing. As she made it to the top, she began to look around at what other people were doing and feel as though she needed to begin doing those things too. It was then that she started to just feel “blah” when it came to sharing. It was a feeling she had never had and she didn’t like it. She grew into more and more of a funk until she finally said “God, I don’t like this! Get me out of this funk, whatever it takes.” So God asked her what she had been doing before. She started thinking on all the things she loved about sharing in Young Living. Just thinking about things that SHE loved started getting her passions back up. When she finally stopped rambling on about what she loved and why, God told her “Well do that.”

Isn’t that incredible?! Just do what you love because I created you to love those things and I created you to shine in those areas. So do it!

It is so easy to look at what others are doing and get distracted from what you love to do, what you are good at, what you are called to do.

That was a huge takeaway for me! She encouraged everyone to find her niche. If you don’t know what that looks like, take a look at your passions. If you have been so caught up with the monotony of everyday life that you have no idea what your passions are, consider what you used to be passionate about. Then consider your strengths. What comes easy to you. If you don’t know, ask someone close to you what strengths and gifts they see in you. Now take a look and see how you can use those things to find your personal niche.

The biggest passion that I want to focus on is strong God-centered marriages. Now I fail in this area daily, but nonetheless I always want to improve and love to encourage other women who also want to be godly wives and mothers. I can do that through my writing. I can also share from my heart on Young Living products that help me and my family in this area.

So be expecting to hear a lot more from me on things I use in my home. I will be here on a more consistent basis, Lord willing!

February 2017 Promotions

The Young Living February 2017 promotions are awesome! I mean they always are, but I am especially excited about Wintergreen and PanAway. Read on…

Young Living February 2017 promotion

Since I became a stay at home mom, my husband took on a second job. He is working 90+ hours a week at the moment. He is on his feet from 6am to 9pm most weekdays, then shorter shifts on the weekends. Concrete floors at one job, tile the next. I love having these two oils on hand to massage his tired feet. He deserves it!

So lets take a look at ALL the awesome promotions for this month, shall we?

Lemongrass is a great skin oil with a bright clean aroma. Combine with V-6 massage oil for an uplifting massage.

Young Living Lemongrass

Wintergreen has an awesome tingling sensation that is awesome after a long work day or long workout. Creates an uplifting space.

PanAway also has an awesome tingling sensation and is great before or after a workout. This is a great oil to pamper yourself with. Rub on your neck and enjoy!

Palo Santo is a refreshing and inspiring scent. This is a perfect oil to diffuse for relaxation.

Eucalyptus Radiata can be applied to your chest or neck for a mid day pick me up.

So how can you get all these oils for free? Well, here is the breakdown of how much you earn for each PV level. I will mention essential rewards (ER) points without going into detail of what ER is, look for a post on that in the future. You must be on essential rewards to earn the ER bonuses).

January with Young Living

January with Young Living – taking a look at the Young Living promotions for January 2017.

new year, young living, January 2017 promotions

Young Living monthly promotions are a great way to get free oils each month. These oils usually have a theme each month, and are a great way to get new products into your home that aren’t on your priority list yet, but should be.

Let’s take a look at what they are offering for January. Oh, but hurry! January is almost out the door. Take advantage while you still can!

PnCpromo

The awesome lineup for January includes:
Peace and Calming (5ml): Gentle sweet scent that provides an uplifting experience. This isn’t even available to purchase and is frequently out of stock, so it would behoove you to get in on this!

Helichrysum (5ml): Great to diffuse when setting and looking over your goals, a perfect companion to keep you on track for your resolutions. I also like this on my face at bedtime!

Joy (15ml): Encourages romance, bliss, and warmth when diffused. Can also be worn as a fragrance. I love this oil and can never get enough of it. I mean joy, why would you say no to more joy?!

JoyFeeling

Eucalyptus Globulus (15ml): Contains a high percentage of eucalyptol (google it). It brings a clean aroma into any room of the house. As a stay at home mom, I love that, it is nice for the husband to come home to a clean smelling home, even when the kids have been messier than usual.

If you are on Essential Rewards (ER), you also receive bonus oils of Basil Vitality, and Citrus Fresh Vitality, both 5ml.

So here is the breakdown on how to take advantage and get the most free stuff your personal budget will allow:

 

  1. 190 PV includes Eucalyptus Globulus
  2. 250 PV includes Joy, and Eucalyptus Globulus
  3. 300 PV includes Peace and Calming, Helichrysum, Joy, Eucalyptus Globulus

If you are just starting out with Young Living, this month is a great time to start. Your initial investment of the Premium Starter Kit is 100pv. Why not add just a bit to that initial investment and really fill your home with many essential oils to really have great beginning to your oily journey at a significant discount over what you would normally pay. Add to these fantastic offers my offers for the month and you could really maximize your buying power. More oils in your home is more oils to love. The more oils you have, the more you can share! Just check out the rewards for sharing!

young living premium starter kit

You really do need to hurry though! Peace and Calming is only available for a limited time. Once it is gone, you will have to wait until some of the plants come in season again, because Seed to Seal matters. Young Living will not compromise in quality.

If you sign up from now until January 31st with a Premium Starter Kit with the Dewdrop diffuser, they will send you a bonus oil of Peace and Calming. As in original Peace and Calming. As in this stuff is rarely in stock, and promotions are the only way to get it right now! Go, click here order your Premium Starter Kit. Enjoy all the Peace and all the Calming!

That was already an amazing offer, but I am going to make it even better for one lucky new oiler. Each person who signs up with a Premium Starter Kit (PSK) anywhere in my group by January 31st will be entered to win Slique Essence from yours truly. This is an awesome blend that can be beneficial for your weight maintenance goals, especially when combined with the other Slique products*. Digestive support is also a nice perk*. So if you are struggling to stick with those goals you made for yourself this year, maybe this will be the ticket to get you back on track. What in the world are you waiting for? Click to get your PSK!

SacredMountain

Great deals right?! An awesome way to start your essentially oily lifestyle, right? Well, I have one more fun promotion for you.

Sacred Mountain is a favorite of mine because of its scent that reminds me a bit of the also frequently out of stock original Valor. Sacred Mountain is strengthening, empowering, and grounding when diffused or used topically. Go! Enter to win. This promotion will end February 3.

While you are on my facebook page, be sure to check out the events that I have scheduled. There are two online (facebook) classes as well as a local event on the calendar. I am working on more.

Young Living December 16 Promos

Young Living has free products with purchases of a certain amount each month. They do this, generally in 3 tiers, with you earning more product as spend more in product. These in the past have generally started at 190PV. In the last several months they have also added an extra bonus on top of these bonuses just for Essential Rewards (ER) members. It already was a sweet deal, I mean I LOVE free oils! Young Living has recently made it even better.

makeoverblog

If you are on essential rewards, the starting threshold to earn free product last month and this month is only 100PV! This is so exciting for two reasons. 1: you need to be on 100pv each month to earn all the bonuses possible on your commission check, so it is just good to get into the habit of spending that much on products you already know you love and will use. 2: as we approach Christmas and this gift-giving season, sometimes we have to trim a bit off our Young Living budget. I mean, not that I want to. I would be on board for a way bigger Young Living budget!

sunglasses

Check out the awesome products offered for December 2016:
Tea Tree: good for skin care and cleansing (even cloth diapered bums, diluted of course)
Orange Vitality: contains limonene and tastes great in water or in many dishes (my daughter’s favorite)
Nutmeg:a warm, spicy aroma that is energizing and uplifting (I do need the occasional perk, don’t you?)
NingXia Nitro: supports cognitive alertness and fitness (AMAZING stuff. I used lots when I worked 16 hour shifts. I need it for looooooong days with the kids too. You know what I am saying!)
Excite: A BRAND NEW oil featuring Ocotea, Nutmeg and more (How exciting! I need Excite in my life, I mean who doesn’t want excitement?!)
Abundance: features oils used by ancient cultures to attract prosperity and magnify joy and peace (I love this stuff! At one point I had 3 open bottles!)
