Meet the Best People

Young Living is a great way to meet some of the best people!

Jim Rohn is quoted as saying “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I have found this to be absolutely true! There was a time that all of my time was spent around negative, unhappy people. During those times I found ever so much to be unhappy about.

Thankfully for me, about six years ago I joined Young Living, and through this amazing company I have met some amazing people. I have posted many times about my dear friend Carrie.

I also met her amazing daughter, the now Diamond leader Sara Wallace. Her and I did a vendor booth together years ago which was fun. It has been even more fun to watch her grow into an amazing leader, wife, and mom. She is always learning and growing and challenges those around her to do the same.

My favorite though is one that I met at another vendor booth for a cloth diapering mom’s group. I met my friend Tonya there, among many other people. Who knew then that she would end up being one of my favorite friends?

That’s the beauty of Young Living. You meet like minded people who have similar goals, so you end up wanting to spend time with them, encouraging them in the pursuit of those goals. You learn and grow together, celebrating the successes of the people you care about.

It’s not just about business, though. When you truly find “your tribe,” you truly value the friendship, you form a true friendship. You share, laugh, and go through the happy and the tough moments of life together. In fact, we recently scheduled time together to work. We ended up doing no work. We talked and watched our kids play together the whole time. All the work was done through text later that evening!

friends, Young Living

Meeting people with goals and vision can help motivate you to find then reach your own goals and vision. The best way to succeed in life is to surround yourself with people who are already successful in the areas of life that you want to improve.

Young Living has them all! I have met faith-filled wives and mothers. I have met influential business leaders. I have met humble home-schooling moms. I have met health gurus. I have also met some of the most giving and generous people I know.

I want to be more like all these ladies (well, I am not so sure on the home school business, haha). I admire the amazing ladies I have met through Young Living and value their friendship. I hope to spend more and more time with these kinds of people. They are my tribe. I want to be like them, so I like to spend my time and energy with them.

Living in Balance

There seems to be much discussion on balance these days. Many of us struggle to find balance between work and family, balance between healthy and overboard, balance between spending and saving etc.

That is why I am so excited about the new Oola kit that was unveiled at convention this year. This kit includes 7 different oils to help balance 7 different areas of life. These are in no particular order, just in the order that they came into my head: Fun, Family, Faith, Fitness, Finance, Field, and Friends.

I most certainly need help in the area of Fun!! I can’t count the number of times within the last weeks or months that I have told Robbie that I don’t have time for fun! Between working full-time, trying to run and grow a business, and raising a family, I don’t make time to have fun. I work then get distracted with things like facebook. Facebook is a distraction, but not actual fun. I need to improve on this one!

PregBowling

Family has been rather neglected as I have worked to grow my Young Living business. I need to wear this so that I can keep family time all about family instead of glancing at my phone to see if there are business items to be attended to or an improvement in different statistics that I track.

Faith is one that I could improve upon as well. I am a Christian wife and mom, but because of my work hours, I am unable to attend church on Sundays. I listen to podcasts, but I would love to be able to attend regularly again as the praise and worship time before church is my favorite part, and there is nothing better than a good sermon!

Fitness is an area that has a large area that I could improve upon as well. I have not spent much time on fitness as I am worried my milk supply will dry up. I do want to stay healthy though, and looking attractive to my husband is a nice benefit as well!

Finance is one that will likely be in daily use for me! I have a very bad habit of blowing money. My biggest weaknesses are food and cloth diapers! I need to put far more effort into making money, and a lot less into spending what is not available to spend.

Field is all about jobs. It is always wise to improve upon skills and knowledge in order to keep yourself in demand and on top of your game.

I need to improve upon the Friends area also. My poor friends have not seen me much since my son was born. Sure they can see pics on facebook, but that really is not enough to support and maintain a relationship! I need more balance in my life and friendships.

It truly is all about balance, and all of these 7 areas are important for a healthy, happy, fulfilled life. It can be a real struggle to find balance, or at least it is for me. I can’t wait to get this kit, and I hope you will give it a try. Let me know which areas you hope to gain balance in most.

Note that this kit is not available from Young Living just yet. Praying it is very soon!
