We all can use a little balance in our lives. Blog challenge Day 1
I was so happy to launch my new website on February 24th this year. I’ve been annoyed by my old website for over a year. So I spend a lot of time, effort and money on a new website. Happy as a little girl in a candy store when it was launched. I was going to blog every week, fill it with content, making people happy, helping them and then….
Then life happened. I get busy, other people are keeping me busy (ok, I allow other people to keep me busy). And my website is there and it is all quiet on the blog side.
When I want things to change, I have to make a change. So I decided to do just that. I saw somebody talking about a 30 day blog challenge and I decided to go for it. It toke my 20 seconds of courage. And a little more time to write. So every day for the next 30 days, I’ll be writing a blog for my website and hoping for the bottom of my heart that I will give you some input, help, motivation or inspiration to make the decision to empower yourself.
For those who don’t know me yet. I’m Marie-Christine, I’m 42 years old, a mother, wife, daughter, sister, mompreneur, business owner, energy coach, essential oil educator, mentor and friend. I have many other rolls too. But I like those a lot. My journey with essential oils started about 3,5 years ago, when I still worked a corporate job, making lots of hours and having a 10 month old son who didn’t want to go to bed. I felt stuck, overwhelmed and very tired. Essential oils changed my life, give me my power back. It has been my mission since to help other mothers finding their power and control again. Because when moms are happy, everybody is happy.
We moms, we think we can do it all. Sometimes, we think the neighbor can do it all and wonder how she does it all? We get overwhelmed and wonder if life is just this? I can tell you, no it isn’t. We need those moments, to enjoy the sunny moments in our life. This is the point where balance and self-care come around and say hello.
Have you ever been on a plane? Can you remember, that with the safety instructions, they tell us to put our own oxygen mask on first, then help others. Your mother instinct will probably scream now. No, not me first, the baby first. But do you know, that by helping the other one first, it might be too late, to help yourself. And who is going to rescue you???
The same thing is happening in our daily life. We give the oxygen masks to others first, we forget to help ourselves. Our significant other has to go to work, kids to school, old mothers need to be taken care off, we have our house hold to run, maybe work or business and who is the last in the line? Yes it is you!
I’m here to tell you. If you don’t care of you now, no one will. If you want to serve those who you love, you need to serve yourself too. Take time, for you every morning, before you go out and help others. Take an moment to meditate, pray or whatever works for you. Next to that, I love to use the blend of oils called balance to help me with that. It helped my balancing my emotions after my third miscarriage. It helps me plant my feet firmly on the ground every day and feel rooted and calm, whatever a little boy or other people throw at me. It helps me balancing my blood sugar, so I don’t have a lot of sweet cravings the whole day (eating properly at regular times helps too). It helps me feel stable, grounded, self-contained, filled with inner-strength, perseverance and connected. It helps me to receive and give and releases my emotional blocks.
All of this with just one drop of oil under my feet every morning, to get started and be the woman that I would like to be every day. Sure, there are days that will not go as planned. But I know, when I am balanced, I can handle so much more. I put on my oxygen mask first, so I can help others with theirs. I know you can do that too. Just show yourself a little self-love and self-care and I know, that your days will turn into sunshine every day.
Let me know, how I can help you, help yourself. I am wishing you a very balanced day.
Love and to your health,
